Hypnotism consists of altering the mental condition of the brain activity. False memory is based on that theory.
My husband used to try to hypnotize me, I think he might have succeeded once, I'm not sure. There was some "missing time" events/episodes that had me concerned around that time.

That's ok, I can give a third opinion if you like as I've hypnotised many lovely women in my life with the joys of love, as have they with me.

But I am local and eternities are what I'm into, that's a mental state. Human psychology has always fascinated me, for the vast majority it's a very restricting thing filled with empty fears and misunderstanding. People mentally cling to what they perceive is a reality when in reality their perceptions are false and their unfolding futures always reflect that in their outcomes.

Mental freedom comes from removing all those things which restrict you to adhering to accepted approaches and keeping you in a guilt complex. Religion and other ideologies rely upon these illusionary restrictions to control people by instilling and reinforcing fears, guilt of rejection and alienation from the accepted norm.

Because people unnaturally rely so heavily on ideology and others for their mental stimulation and direction, they can't conceive of anything out side that box. But once you take control of your mind and remove the chemical imbalances caused by sociological restraints and indoctrinations, you see the world through the eyes of an observer and are suddenly free of restrictions allowing you to have a fruitful adventurous responsible life, in internal peace and external pleasure.

Life is a drug, all you have to do is regulate the dosage to suit the circumstances. Then just enjoy the buzz.

What science is there to the Mental Health Industry?

The mental health and the pharmacutical industry has been creating mentally compromised people and bilking the Government.

1. There no evidence that depression can be seen by any imaging device.

Can Brain Scans See Depression?

Snip from the article:

After almost 30 years, researchers have not developed any standardized tool for diagnosing or treating psychiatric disorders based on imaging studies.

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/10/18/health/psyc...

2. There is no specific genes associated with depression:

Human geneticists have reached a private crisis of conscience, and it will become public knowledge in 2010. The crisis has depressing health implications and alarming political ones.

The Economist

Human geneticists have reached a private crisis of conscience, and it will become public knowledge in 2010. The crisis has depressing health implications and alarming political ones. In a nutshell: the new genetics will reveal much less than hoped about how to cure disease, and much more than feared about human evolution and inequality, including genetic differences between classes, ethnicities and races.

About five years ago, genetics researchers became excited about new methods for “genome-wide association studies”(GWAS). We already knew from twin, family and adoption studies that all human traits are heritable: genetic differences explain much of the variation between individuals. We knew the genes were there; we just had to find them. Companies such as Illumina and Affymetrix produced DNA chips that allowed researchers to test up to 1m genetic variants for their statistical association with specific traits. America’s National Institutes of Health and Britain’s Wellcome Trust gave huge research grants for gene-hunting. Thousands of researchers jumped on the GWAS bandwagon. Lab groups formed and international research consortia congealed. The quantity of published GWAS research has soared.
In 2010, GWAS fever will reach its peak.
Dozens of papers will report specific genes associated with almost every imaginable trait—intelligence, personality, religiosity, sexuality, longevity, economic risk-taking, consumer preferences, leisure interests and political attitudes. The
data are already collected, with DNA samples from large populations already measured for these traits. It’s just a matter of doing the statistics and writing up the papers for Nature Genetics. The gold rush is on throughout the leading behaviour-genetics centres in London, Amsterdam, Boston, Boulder and Brisbane.
GWAS researchers will, in public, continue trumpeting their successes to science journalists and Science magazine. They will reassure Big Pharma and the grant agencies that GWAS will identify the genes that explain most of the variation in heart disease, cancer, obesity, depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s and ageing itself. Those genes will illuminate the biochemical pathways underlying disease, which will yield new genetic tests and blockbuster drugs. Keep holding your breath for a golden age of health, happiness and longevity.

They simply have not been delivering the goods.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.

There is no test for chemical imbalance of the brain. The Mental health Industry lies.

APA Admits there is no test for "chemical imbalance"

Pasted from < http://www.webwire.com/ViewPressRel.asp... ;

In an explosive admission, American psychiatric Association President Steven Sharfstein did a 180-degree turnaround from his TODAY show interview (June 27) and admitted that there is no way to test for a “chemical imbalance” as the cause for mental disorders. PEOPLE magazine (July 11), quoted Dr. Sharfstein conceding,“We do not have a clean-cut lab test.”
Dr. Sharfstein is not alone. Elliot Valenstein, Ph.D. says,“[T]here are no tests available for assessing the chemical status of a living person’s brain.” The late Dr. Loren Mosher stated,“…there are no external validating criteria for psychiatric diagnoses.”
In 2004, psychiatrist M. Douglas Mar debunked the theory that brain scans can help diagnose mental diseases stating,“There is no scientific basis for these claims [of using brain scans for psychiatric diagnosis].”
Harvard University professor, Joseph Glenmullen, author of “Prozac Backlash,” said the questionnaires of symptoms used to “diagnose” depression “may look scientific,” but “are utterly subjective measures.”
“But unfortunately, the tragedy in this misinformation campaign has been the children who have been pegged with these invented illnesses and given life-destroying drugs,” said Marla Filidei, VP of CCHR International.“We’ve seen hundreds of cases where children’s lives have been destroyed as a result of these labels.”
Ten-year-old Shaina Dunkle collapsed and died from toxic levels of the psychiatric drug she was prescribed.“Shaina looked into my eyes as her life ended and I could do nothing to save her. It’s been two years and I relive those last few minutes every day. Believe me, it is a nightmare no parent should ever have to live with, said Mrs. Vicki Dunkle.
At age 7, Matthew Smith was diagnosed with ADHD. His parents were told he needed to take a stimulant to help him focus and that non-compliance could bring criminal charges for neglecting their son’s educational and emotional needs. The parents acceded to the pressure and put Matthew on a psychiatric drug and on March 21, 2000, while skateboarding, Matthew suffered a heart attack and died from the effects of the drug.
By their own admission, psychiatrists cannot cure. Norman Sartorius, President of the World Psychiatric Association from 1996-1999 concluded that “the time when psychiatrists considered that they could cure the mentally ill is gone"

There Are No Tests for "Chemical Imbalances"

Snip:

"The hypothetical disturbances of neurochemical function that are said to underlie "mental illness" are just that: hypothetical. No experiment has ever shown that anyone has an "imbalance" of any neurotransmitters or any other brain chemicals. Nor could any conceivable experiment demonstrate the existence of a "chemical imbalance," simply because no one, least of all the biopsychiatrists, has the slightest idea what a proper and healthy chemical "balance" would look like."

"...the views and beliefs of biopsychiatry have nothing to do with the answers to scientific questions in any case: the hunt for biological "causes" of "mental illness" is an entirely fallacious enterprise in the first place; the non- existence of data to support its assertions is quite beside the point."

"The latest edition of one pharmacology text has this to say about the status of depression as a disease: "Despite extensive efforts, attempts to document the metabolic changes in human subjects predicted by these [biological] hypotheses have not, on balance, provided consistent or compelling corroboration." This is a long-winded way of admitting that not even a scrap of evidence supports the idea that depression results from a "chemical imbalance." Yet patients are told every day - by their doctors, by the media, and by drug company advertising - that it is a proven scientific fact that depression has a known biochemical origin. It follows directly that millions of Americans are being lied to by their doctors; and people surely can't give informed consent for drug treatment when what they're being "informed" by is a fraud.... To sum up: there is no evidence whatsoever to support the view that "mental illness" is biochemical in origin; in other words, things like "Unipolar Disorder" and "Attention Deficit Disorder" simply do not exist."
