- Perhaps I sounded crude when, in Part 3, I compared one
of the 'symptoms' of autism the ability to memorize a printed page
'photographically' -- with the cruel practices of mind control. I
should have said, and I do now say, that there is NO CONNECTION.
- Rather, the two phenomena have something in common. Some
autistic persons (e.g., Dr Temple Grandin) say that they think in pictures. That's
God-given - nobody stood over them with a whip and made them learn
how to do it. But Henry Kissinger did stand over Brice Taylor
with a whip, of sorts, to create mind-files in her brain so that he could
store information 'offshore.' (That was in 1959; today he could probably
just buy a big memory stick.)
- The four parts of my 'Autism Ideas' series, so far, are:
1. Grandin, 2. Offit, 3. Kissinger, and
4. Vaccine Court. Now, in Part 5, there will be a parallel to Part 3. The
natural, spontaneous behavior of an autistic child includes spinning (several
families have video'd their kids spinning; see Youtube). But the deliberate
act of spinning a child, with a whip over her head, so to speak, was done
by men ('the Sidney Gottliebs of this world') in the MK-Ultra program.
- SOME EXAMPLES OF SPINNING, AS A BASIS FOR COMPARISON
- The goal of this paper is mainly to publicize those two
different ways in which spinning is used. If the facts stated here should
lead anyone to have a Eureka moment, -- and I think they will that
will be lovely. I myself have not done any Eureka-ing, and I
personally am not planning any further neuroscience research. I'm
just hoping that readers who already knew about one of the two kinds of
spinning (the autistic and the mind-control), but didn't know t'other,
will come away from this juxtaposition with more clues about either one
- Let's begin with three quotes from women who, as children,
were forcibly programmed:
- "I was placed in large metal chambers and left in
isolation, sometimes spun, with colored lights, always with only one color
at a time. I was restrained in sophisticated chairs with electrodes attached
to my head Often loud, piercing sounds were relayed through earphones,
usually with different sounds being fed into each ear." - Brice
Taylor, "Thanks for the Memories." (1999)
- "This chair was used from about age two At
first, when I was placed in the chair it was used, with drugs, to gently
vibrate and electrically stimulate me into FEELING FLOATY.. The chair's
bucking and spinning was used to create INTERNAL TORNADOES through little
pulses and zaps Over the years, the chair was used to vibrate me into an
'open channel' state with really amazing lighting and special
effects added. Later it was used more harshly for 'repairs,'
by making me near crazy and TOTALLY SUGGESTIBLE." (emphasis added)
- - Trish Fotheringham, "Patterns," a chapter
in Randy and Pamela Noblitt, eds. "Ritual Abuse in the 21st Century"
- "Dr Green performed Radiation Experiments on me
in 1970. Each time I became dizzy, nauseous, and threw up.
Chris De Nicola, testifying at a presidential hearing, 1995.
- Many of the victims of the CIA's MK-Ultra report that
they were spun on tables or 'rotisseries,' or on a vertical wheel (as in
roulette). It may be that the only purpose of the spinning was to make
the child suggestible. After all, the centerpiece of MK-Ultra was behavior
control -- turning the person into the slave of the government master.
Yet there may have been a type of research going on that has yet to be
revealed. (Betcha five dollars there was.)
- VESTIBULAR INVOLVEMENT
- Darned if I'll walk into the trap of trying to give a
medical lecture when I am in fact a medical ignoramus. But I
do at least know that dizziness has got something to do with the inner
ear I qualify by being a seasickness-sufferer. (Actually I take it
to extremes: if there's a newspaper on the floor and I try to read the
headlines upside-down, I get nauseated.) They say Lord Nelson,
British admiral in the war against Napoleon, got seasick every day at work.
And now he stands atop the pole in Trafalgar Square you hope he doesn't
have agoraphobia as well!
- I also acquired some basics from medicinenet.com.
For example, the inner ear provides sense of balance as well as auditory
stuff. "Patients' complaints" include vertigo, migraine, and
dizziness, which likely reflect a change in fluid in the inner ear. (Don't
trust me. I am throwing terms around, hoping the penny will drop for one
of y'all.) The reason one gets seasick is that the information coming in
from the eye (that the landscape is moving) does not agree with the sensation
from his balancing mechanism that tells him he is in fact standing on something
flat. The two should match. If they don't, your healthy body is not going
to take that lying down, is it?
- That balancing mechanism, I forgot to say, is the 'vestibular'
function (not related to the vestibule at church, or maybe it is related,
I don't know). A person innately has awareness of the body's motion, e.g.,
whether one is going left or right, or front or back. Indeed the human,
like any mammal, does not have to plan his posture, or his defensive re-balancing
if he starts to fall down an incline; it is all worked out instinctively.
Thank God for the vestibular -- at least in those of us who aren't afflicted
- AUTISM'S VESTIBULAR DEVIANCE FROM THE NORM
- Temple Grandin, as mentioned in Part 1 of this series,
says that a rotor ride at the amusement park helped her. She
also notes: "Research says stimulating the vestibular system by spinning
the child in an office chair twice weekly reduces hyperactivity" ("Emergence,"
1986). On a website called telusplanet.net I found this note
entitled "Sensory Integration" for autistic children:
- "The body senses movement, force of gravity, and
body position through the muscles and joints. This is referred to as proprioception
When sensory input is not organized or aligned properly, problems in learning,
development or behavior may be evident. When individuals engage in rigorous
activity, it helps them define their body in space and provides feedback
through their muscles and joints. The very way in which autistic children
stand (elbows bent, hands nearly together in front, drooping at wrists,
fingers slightly curled) is indicative of their efforts to sense their
body through movements of their muscles and joints."
- Telusplanet.net says: "Many children
enjoy spinning in chairs to help reduce hyperactivity When autistic children
run, they often flap their hands, or jump up and down. Some walk on their
tiptoes, while bending and swooping forward on stiff legs, while others
stomp their feet loudly. Most prefer to rock back and forth or side to
side in attempts to calm themselves. Some spin round and round, while twisting
and turning their fingers in front of their eyes. Merry Go Rounds, mini-trampolines
and stationary bicycles also provide stimulation to the vestibular receptors."
- That website also says "Some autistic children have
shown an increase in eye contact immediately following swinging." This
accords with what Shelly Birger of awakeparent.com says: "Believe
it or not, when we get lots of motion through space (like on a swing, dancing,
or spinning) it actually helps our senses work better. With some well-timed
rocking or spinning, stimulation, your little dude could be settling down
with his dinosaurs for some sustained play time. In other words, you may
get to shower today! Hooray!"
- Birger adds: "When I worked in Montessori schools,
we'd often use this tool to help our most active kids settle in to their
work. If we noticed someone wandering around, bothering other kids, and
unable to decide what activity to choose -- we'd just send him or her out
to the swings for five minutes. After a few minutes of swinging, the child
would almost magically come back into the classroom, decide on an activity,
sit down and really concentrate for a half an hour or more! I sometimes
couldn't believe it was the same kid."
- That also accords with what I (Mary) was told by a friend
of mine who was forcibly mind- controlled from infancy. She
says that after she was spun she felt very eager to being told something
new! Her ordeal in mind control is the subject to which we now
- SPINNING FOR THE CIA JOHN LOVERN'S REPORT
- John Lovern, PhD, presented at paper at a psychology
conference entitled "Spin Programming: A Newly Uncovered Technique
of Systematic Mind Control." He offered his work to "be
copied and distributed freely," so I shall give an abridged version
here. The tone he adopts is that of a therapist advising colleagues
as to what they may expect to see in a patient who has dissociative identity
disorder -- "DID" -- a revised diagnosis for what use to be called
- "This is a coercive technique previously unknown
to psychotherapists. This technique here labeled 'spin programming,' appears
designed to spread effects such as pain, painful emotions, and other feelings
or urges globally throughout a patient's personality system for purposes
of either designing and building a young victim's personality system, or
harassing older victims and disrupting psychotherapy. Spin programming
appears to be based on a combination of physical spinning, cognitive and
- Lovern continues: "Examples of the types of effects
that may be spread in this way are physical pain, confusion, depression,
self-destructive or suicidal urges, alienation, apathy, hopelessness, fear
of abandonment or rejection, panic, terror, urges to run away, jealousy,
doubt, suspicion, rage, violent urges, sexual arousal or urges, lethargy,
immobility, sleepiness, sleeplessness, hunger, loss of appetite, and urges
to use drugs or alcohol." (We are talking about CIA deliberately doing
- Hmm. Does this remind you that in the Soviet
Union, pre-1991, political protesters were given psychiatric hospitalization?
It was alleged (or boasted, either one) that drugs could be administered
to make the prisoner feel almost any emotion ordered by his captors. If
true, there must be an easy chemical way to mimic depression, frustration,
fear, despair, etc. Oh, wait a minute! My first Eureka: perhaps the Soviet
method was not injection of drugs but recourse to a spin program!
- Returning to Lovern on spin: "Programmers may spread
these effects throughout a personality system as a method of disrupting
the total functioning of the person, or they may use the possibility of
spreading them as a threat to enforce compliance with directives or prohibitions
they have issued. Spin programs are also useful in system-building, both
because of their ability to quickly transmit information within or throughout
a personality system [!] and because of their ability to establish power
relationships between alters and groups of alters [an alter is a multiple]."
- "Patients who have experienced a great deal of spinning
have a number of sensitivities that they usually do not understand until
they are consciously aware of having been spun. For example, many patients
become very disturbed by flashing lights, because they are similar to the
lights they had to watch while being spun. For similar reasons, they are
also often disturbed by watching rapidly changing colors or circular, swirling
motions of any kind, as well as by certain types of music." Lovern
also says that such patients constantly draw doodles of swirling tornadoes.
- This conclusion must contain questions not answers. (Mary,
can you spell 'ignoramus'?) The main question is What makes a normal child,
at the age of 18 months, regress into autism? I don't mean Was it caused
by vaccination? I mean What is it, that is taking place in the
brain, that can make a child's development regress? No one knows.
(The amount of research is unbelievably meager.)
- As mentioned in my Part 2, which was called "Offit,
Come Off It," Prof John Walker-Smith of the UK, along with Andrew
Wakefield and Simon Murch (ALL of whom are greatly appreciated by parents),
identified a syndrome that associates autism and bowel disease. They
do not yet have a theory as to how it works. One thing that seems likely
is that the 'disease,' once it arrives in the brain, affects the vestibular
area, judging from the kids' characteristic behaviors described above.
- Temple Grandin, who is -- you can take my word for this
a goldmine of knowledge, want us to look at 'disconnections'
in the cortex, as in the research by Eric Courchesne of U Cal San Diego
and Nancy Minshew of Carnegie Mellon. They have found that local areas
of processing in the brain are just as sharp for autistics as for normals
(maybe even better), but that the long-distance connections of a brain
with autism are pardon me lousy. Grandin offers
- "Think of the normal brain as a big corporate office
building. All the different departments such as legal, accounting, advertising,
sales, and the CEO's office are connected together by many communication
systems such as e-mail [and] telephones. The autistic/Asperger brain is
like an office building where some of the interdepartmental communication
systems are not hooked up. The great variability in autistic/Asperger symptoms probably
depends on which 'cables' get connected and which do not. People on the
spectrum are often good at one thing and bad at something else. To use
the computer cable analogy, the limited number of good cables may connect
up one area and leave the other areas with poor connections."
- Finally, do genes make a child autistic? Well,
in one sense, yes. Grandin, you may recall, admits in her book
"Thinking in Pictures" that some of her relatives have a trait
or two that feature on the autism list of traits. And of the
hundreds of autistic persons she has spoken to, around the world, she notes
that many have family members gifted in art, mathematics, etc.. But
this doesn't mean that a genetic 'cause' of autism has been found. No,
just the vulnerability. In other words, if an autism epidemic sweeps the
country, it may selectively hit those genetically prone to be hit.
- We need to know how it does that hitting, and who the
hell made this epidemic start in 1989.
