            THE ILLUSIONIST DIGEST
                  Volume 1 No. 1

Thank you for ordering a Dream Business in Magic and
welcome to the Illusionist Digest, an Internet
publication that will update on your product from time
to time. In this Digest, we will discuss topics of
wide-ranging interest to those involved with magic,
hypnosis and the paranormal and other subjects where
the student needs a great deal of discernment to sort
out illusion from reality.

For us, magic is a kind of metaphor for the problem of
reality we have on Planet Earth. Illusion is not only
widespread. It is a pandemic. It occurs on every level
of life. Illusion crowds out a great deal of reality.

Contenders for political office deceive us with their
false promises. Once in office, they deceive us by
tailoring their actions to their receipt of political
money from lobbyists instead of listening to the voice
of the people who elected them. They create covert
political, social and military programs without our
knowledge and permission. They vote for bills with
hidden clauses and commitments to spending tax dollars
no knows about. When something terrible happens,
whether they directly caused it or not, they protect
us by creating cover-ups and proliferating untruths.
They are magicians with words and Master Illusionists
in their performances.

Yes, for us, magic is a metaphor. But, unlike other
types of illusions, magic is actually, for the most
part, a great deal of fun. Perhaps by putting magic on
the table of our thoughts, we can learn to be more
discerning about other things, some of them gravely
important.

We hope you will enjoy a far-ranging discussion of
this enigmatic place where paradox and uncertainty
provide a subtle, gray fog to keep the gentle seeker
on edge, uncertain of his footsteps.      Readers may
write us and contribute to this discussion. Where have
you encountered unexplainable strangeness in your
life? Where have you been able to penetrate the veil
between illusion and reality? We cannot promise that
we will print everything we receive, but at least let
us look at it. Share your vision with us.

Magicians, most notably the contemporary Randi and the
renowned Harry Houdini have been vitally concerned
with helping the public to see the purported unreality
of certain paranormal phenomena. David Blaine‟s stunts
taunt its public with a certain proximity to claims of
paranormal powers, most specifically in his stunts
that ape the powers of Hindu Fakirs. The program, the
Phenomenon, with Uri Geller and Chris Angel, tackles
“mentalist” illusions with the objective of rewarding
the illusionist with global notoriety- but still much
of the Phenomenon aims at spotlighting mentalist
magic.

To be sure, there is sometimes a thin veil between
what is real and what is pretense. Let us explore this
strange place together.

            THE ILLUSIONIST DIGEST
                Volume 1 No. 2

The great illusionist Houdini was well known for his
staunch   campaign   against  so-called   mediums   and
psychics of the time. However, the motivation behind
his fervent opposition was much deeper than a simple
business rivalry; Houdini had been attempting to make
contact with his deceased mother through various
mediums. Enduring failure after failure, Houdini began
to doubt the validity of the psychics, and perceived
their faulty attempts at communication as slights
against his mother. Slowly, Houdini's disillusionment
turned into the desire for payback; he decided he
would expose these fraudulent mediums once and for
all.




             Click Here to Buy This Poster
In one of his most famous attempts at exposing
mediums, Houdini participated on a board of critics
for a study encouraging mediums to physically prove
their abilities. A medium by the name Mina Crandon -
stage name Margery - stepped up to the task, confident
that her abilities would prove that she could
communicate with spirits. Ever the skeptic, Houdini
confined Margery to a wooden box with a hole on
top (for her head) and holes on the sides (so her
hands could be held during her séances). A bell had
been placed in Margery's box, which she was instructed
to ring after making contact with her spirit guide,
Walter (an unseen entity). Margery was unable to ring
the bell, much to Houdini's delight. According to
Margery, however, she had indeed made contact with her
spirit guide Walter. Walter, in fact, declared that
the bell was sabotaged; a piece of rubber had been
wedged against the clapper so that it would not ring -
this was indeed true, though it was never revealed who
would do such a thing.

Later, Margery declared that Walter had discovered a
ruler inside her box - a ruler that, as was later
proven, Houdini had planted in order to discredit
Margery's claims of authentic communication with the
spirit                                         world.

The bitter battles continued and ultimately, Margery's
abilities were never validated beyond a shadow of a
doubt. On the other hand, Houdini's attempts to
sabotage   Margery   nearly   ruined   Houdini's   own
reputation. In the end, Houdini's seeming quest for
justice was never completely realized, and the
opposing circle of mediums never quite found a way to
disprove Houdini's claims. Transcending Houdini's
period, the dispute between illusionists who claim
their methods are rooted in physical principles and
mediums who point to spiritual explanations seems a
perpetually unresolved one.

            THE ILLUSIONIST DIGEST
                  Volume 1 No. 3

Who is the Amazing Randi?!

James Randi - stage name "The Amazing Randi" remains a
veritable force in the magic industry today. An ardent
skeptic, Randi carries on Houdini's lifelong mission
to   expose  fraudulent   psychics  whose   claims   of
supernatural abilities are backed only by transparent
parlor                                          tricks.

As a child, Randi picked up magic after spending 13
months in a body cast due to a bicycling accident. His
insight into the world of magic allowed him the
ability to see through the deceptions of others'
illusions. While a deceiver on stage, Randi himself
has admitted that he is a cheat and a charlatan - but
it's all part of the game. What he shows no tolerance
for, however, are those who claim to use physic
abilities as opposed to sleight of hand or carefully
staged physical manipulation.




             Click Here to Buy This Poster
In fact, Randi receives massive publicity for offering
a prize of one million dollars to anyone who can
scientifically verify the presence of supernatural
powers or events, on behalf of the James Randi
Educational Foundation. So far, no one has been able
to stand up to the challenge. Randi has since appeared
on television, directly challenging psychics such as
James Hydrick and Sylvia Browne - both of whom have
yet   been   unable   to  objectively   verify   their
supernatural abilities.

Serving as probably Randi's greatest rival, paranormal
magician and popular spoon-bender Uri Geller has filed
numerous lawsuits against Randi, claiming that Randi's
actions have unfairly undermined Uri's reputation. The
lawsuits were dismissed as frivolous and ultimately,
Randi, as he puts it, "never paid even one dollar or
even one cent" to anyone who sued him. As he continues
to produce literature unveiling psychic secrets, Randi
assures his readers that his opposition to fraudulent
magicians is nothing more than compassion for those
who    are    easily    manipulated   by    deceivers.

History repeats itself in the eternal conflict between
the psychic magician and the skeptic illusionist.
Only this time, advances in science have caused the
number of skeptics to multiply, and advances in
technology allow these battles to be waged on the
Internet, this time inviting spectators to choose
sides with an unprecedented level of involvement.

Hey, remember that David Blaine trick where he levitates?

Do you? 's easy. Ridiculously easy. At least, that‟s what
we‟ve been told.

Alright, first, go up to someone and tell them you can
levitate. Now, turn around, walk about five feet back, turn
about 20 degrees to the right, lift your right foot, and
stand on the very tip of your toe with your left foot.
Based on the angle, the person watching will see you "rise"
into the air. That's it. Neat huh?

Speaking about levitating, want to add the Floating
Card Trick to your inventory? Try this link. This
could be you…!!!!!!!

            THE ILLUSIONIST DIGEST
                  Volume 1 No. 4

The belief in the ability of human beings to levitate
is not new. Catholic saints like St. Teresa of Avila,
St. Francis of Assisi, St. Thomas Aquainas, St. Joseph
of Caportino are said to have levitated. In a five
volume book about Christian saints, written in the mid
19th century, J.J. von Gorres speaks of 72 levitated
saints, whereas Oliver Leroy, who writes in the
1920‟s, estimated 200 out of 14,000 Catholic saints
were have said to have levitated.

Shamans levitate. Yogis levitate. Witches are said to
levitate. So no one culture or tradition seems to have
a monopoly on levitation.

Alexandra David-Neel, the British explorer, gave an
account of levitation in her book, With Mystics and
Magicians in Tibet. The feat took place over the
mountainous plateau of Cnang Tang. This is what she
said, The man did not run. He seemed to lift himself
from the ground, proceeding by leaps. It looked as if
he had been endowed with the elasticity of a ball and
rebounded each time his feet touched the ground. His
steps had the regularity of a pendulum."

When   I  was   a   burgeoning   young  magician  (who
unfortunately never made it to the stages of Las
Vegas), one of my most precious childhood tricks was
the floating ball trick. Even as I performed it, using
a primitive wire on my thumb to guide the ball, I
became entranced by my own illusion.

The American stage magician, Harry Keller (1849-1922),
was, in part, famous for his presentation of John
Nevil Maskelyne's Levitation as well as other large
scale tricks which were components of his large stage
show, which toured throughout America during his
career and made two famous World Tours. He was so
respected by Houdini that the great magician arranged
for Keller to be carried off in triumph for his final
moment on stage while 6000 loving spectators sang,
“Auld Lang Syne” in homage to the great magician.

Little tiny illusions can have big consequences for magical
fun.

Have you ever seen someone melt a coin through a table?
They slap their hand on the coin, rub it a bit, and bam!
They lift their hand and it's not there. It's lying on the
floor, under the table. How about that?

Well, once you learn this trick, you'll laugh. Ready?

While you rub your hand against the table, slowly move the
coin along your palm down to your wrist. Then, plop. It
falls off the table. That's all. I bet you feel foolish.

Yes, little tricks like this can be fun.

Great things can start small. Houdini himself, very early
on, before he became the sensational stunt and stage magic
impresario, originally called himself the King of Cards, as
you can see from the poster below. In a lot of ways, card
tricks, as simple as they are, contain a lot of the
possibilities for great showmanship that much larger tricks
do. People like Chris Angel and David Blaine, with their
street magic, continue to reveal their respect for the
potential of intimate, close-up magic- as they go off on
ever bigger and wilder stunts.
Today we're going to learn the 'Snap Change'. This is a
great trick and involves only TWO cards. Also, the trick is
performed so quickly that people won't be able to see how
it works even if they are staring directly at the cards the
entire time. However, it also requires a great deal of
practice and is based more on muscle memory than anything.

First, take two cards, and hide one behind the other - so
it looks like you're holding one card. Hold them out -
lengthwise (horizontally) using your thumb and index+middle
fingers. Tell everybody you're going to snap your fingers
and the card in front of you is going to immediately change
into another card. This is especially fun if you have two
cards of the same value with different suits. "I'm going to
put a new suit on this card." Or a Jack and a King. "I'm
going to turn this boy into a man." And of course, a King
and Queen. "I'm going to turn this man into a woman."

Hold the cards firmly, and slowly apply pressure with your
middle finger as you attempt to slide the top card off the
bottom card. It's basically a snapping motion - leave your
index finger up so you can hold the remaining card with
your thumb and index finger. When you make the snapping
motion, the card that disappears will actually collapse and
lie between your middle and ring fingers - it doesn't go
away. However, if you use the correct angle, usually people
will not see where the card went.
This trick requires more practice than anything. Feel your
way through it. Eventually you should be able to just snap
your fingers and the front card should slide off
effortlessly.

Wanna Wanna learn some neat magic tricks, a little street
magic, a touch of mentalism.

                     Volume 1 No. 6

Here's a trick David Blaine once did, and it requires
knowledge of being able to force a card on your subject.
That is, you flow through the deck, saying "pick a card" -
either through the shape of your deck suggesting a certain
card or by simply switching cards with sleight of hand.
Now, have a duplicate of that card attached to the ceiling
of wherever it is you're doing this trick (obviously not
outside - but you could experiment with other surfaces to
put the card on).

Your subject comes in. "Pick a card, any card," you say,
forcing the duplicated card.Have them take the card in
their hand, show it to their friends, and then put it back.
Shuffle through the deck. Pick the wrong card
intentionally. "Is this your card?" Of course it's not.
Show another wrong card. Get frustrated and throw the deck
in the air. Leave. Have them stand around for a bit. Come
back in. Point to the ceiling.

"Whoa. It stuck to the ceiling."

Nobody ever looks up when they walk into a room.




                 MANDRAKE THE MAGICIAN

I used to love Mandrake the Magician when I was a kid. It
was created by comic book innovator, Lee Falk, during the
depression.   Lee Falk is also known as the creator of the
mysterious crime fighter, The Phantom. Both of these
classic characters added a kind of eerie, spiritual
dimension to their crime-fighting.

Mandrake had a classy looking outfit and neat mustache and
brought a neat twist to the idea of crime-fighting
superhero with special powers.    His weapons were those of
illusion and hypnosis. He was one of American‟s standard
comic strips, syndicated by King Features- and found in
newspapers all over the world. For those aficionados of
magic in comic books, there were others like Sargon the
Sorcerer, Merzah the Mystic and Zanzibar- but the only real
rival to Mandrake was probably Dr. Strange- but he used
real magic and he wasn‟t fooling around!

Was Mandrake the world‟s first Superhero, appearing        in
1934, four years before the first Action Comic appeared?

If you define a superhero as having special powers, then
perhaps Mandrake qualifies. He had the ability to create
illusions through a simple hypnotic gesture. These types of
gestures are a throwback to the old days of Antoine Mesmer,
whose “mesmerists” used gestures to create a directed form
of energy Mesmer called “animal magnetism,” which Mesmer
credited as the cause of hypnotic manifestations. First or
last superhero, it appears that Mandrake will be appearing
in his first full commercial feature in 2008, starring
Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

               THE ILLUSIONIST DIGEST
                     Volume 1 No. 7


Here is an incredibly simple magic trick that involves only
ONE card. You may have even seen this trick before, since
it's so straightforward. It's the 'disappearing card'
trick, which you can use on any passerby walking down the
street!

First, hold the card lengthwise using the tips of your
fingers. The card should protrude from your hand, so not in
your palm. Hold the card using your thumb on the front, and
your middle and ring fingers on the back. The index and
pinky fingers should be hovering without touching anything.
Now what you do is curl your middle and ring fingers such
that the card starts to move into your palm. While this is
happening, take your index and pinky fingers and grab the
top and bottom sides of the card with them. Make sure you
are close to the edge near your palm - you want to leave a
lot of untouched space on the card. This may require some
practice since it uses a bit more flexibility than normal.
Now that you are tightly holding the sides of the card with
two fingers, uncurl your middle and ring fingers all the
way. The card should disappear behind your hand, and
usually the corners will pop out between your fingers. This
is normal for beginners, and with a little tweaking can be
fixed with ease.

Simply commit this motion to muscle memory and you'll be
able to make the card vanish behind your hand more quickly
each time. Then, shake your hand around or pass your other
hand over it to conceal the motion. To bring the card back,
just reverse the motions. That's it! Now you can vanish and
bring back a card. Good luck.

Every boy plays with magic from time to time but back in
1884 or so, a boy named Charles Carter, then ten years old,
debuted at the Pat Harris‟Masonic Temple and the Herzog in
Baltimore. He was dubbed as “Master Charles Carter the
Original Boy Magician.”    Although he actually plied his
trade his lawyer and also a journalist, the love of magic
lured him back to the stage and he became a Master
Illusionist. In one of his renowned tricks, he disappeared
instantaneously as he was about to be hung to death on the
gallows.   Along   with   some   other   renowned   American
magicians, Charles Carter, Howard Thurston, Harry Houdini,
Charles Carter, and Harry Blackstone, Sr. was a members of
the Freemasons. One of his most famous tricks is displayed
in the poster above- the disappearing elephant trick.

             HYPNOSIS AND DICTATORSHIP - PART I

The world is divided up between various types of
governments. Despite the United Nations and its efforts,
despite NATO and its democracies, despite the break-up of
the Soviet domination over its Eastern satellites, despite
the   overthrow  of   Saddam  Hussein  and  the   Taliban,
dictatorships in the world abound.    Some are relatively
gentle and some are relatively harsh, throwbacks to the
days of Hitler and Mussolini.




WWII: Germany; "Nazi Hierarchy: Hitler, Goering, Goebbels, Hess"; The Desperate
 Years p. 143 (Courtesy of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Library Digital Archives.")

Viewing these horrendous governments from a distance, one
wonders why the slightest infraction on the rights and
privileges of citizens of these countries would not
automatically engender revolution? And since they do not,
why? Could it be because the leaders have a grasp of how to
overcome the potential and justifiable rebellion of their
disappointed citizenry? What power could force men into
such abject servitude and indifference to their fate?

Could it be hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a technique used to manipulate the unconscious
to influence human behavior.    Obviously, there are many
ways it can be used for good. It can assist people in
controlling   their   eating   habits,   reducing   smoking,
compulsive gambling; it can be used to overcome phobias and
to investigate repressed or buried memories. These uses are
generally beneficial. But there are also ways in which
hypnotic suggestion can be used for destructive purposes.

In the old style of hypnosis, much was made of the
authority of the hypnotist, with injunctions to obey the
hypnosist, for subjects to transfer their her will to the
hypnotist. Coupled with that emphasis, there were the ultra
repetitive techniques of lulling the patient to hypnotic
sleep with a swinging pendulum or a metronome.    In modern
forms of induction, this technique is largely avoided- and
we know that induction can be induced by gentle imaging, by
certain types of sound and music, by the dance of color- by
a kind of meditative, gentler approach, which tries, at all
costs, to avoid infringing on the human will.

In the 19th century, when modern hypnosis, with its emphasis
on suggestion, began to separate itself from the fluidic
theories of Mesmer, Dr. James Braid, who created the term,
hypnosis, defined that state as “essentially a state of
mental concentration in which the faculties of the mind are
so engrossed in a single train of thought” so that the
subject   would   be   “dead   or    indifferent  to   other
considerations and influences.”    It would be a mistake to
ignore this definition of hypnosis, even in the light of
new methods of induction. This is because people, even in
a light hypnotic state, are open more to suggestion.

Whereas this contention may be subject to intelligent
debate, it is my opinion that many dictatorships use
hypnotic techniques to create a climate of suggestibility
to reinforce a cult of personality that provides the very
basis for their power.    By providing this kind of “mind
control” atmosphere, masses of people, already reinforced
by their numbers and group intentioned, are lulled into a
state of mindless conformity, where they are, as Braid
speaks of, “dead or indifferent to other considerations and
influences.”

          HYPNOSIS AND DICTATORSHIP - PART 2

Here are some of the conditions   that can enforce a state of
at least mild hypnosis. Here      we call the hypnotist the
„operator‟ and his client the     „subject.” In our analogy,
the dictator is the operator      and his client the common
citizen.

  1. The elevation of the operator to a position of
     authority, owing to the kind of transference of
     confidence   to    the   Freudian    psychoanalyst, a
     transference allegedly link to the bonding between a
     parent and a child
  2. The defining of the operator, by a title or epithet,
     as having attributes worthy of this position
  3. The use of gestures to reinforce this authority
  4. A repetition of a word, slogan or mantra, embodying
     the desired suggestion, often something that would
     reinforce the confidence in the operator
  5. Bringing the eyes of the subject to focus on the
     operator or on a symbol of the operator, his position
     or his message
  6. Repetitious and monotonous intonation of subject
     matter germane to the operator‟s inent
  7. Clothes that reflect the symbology and purpose of the
     operator and his leadership

It is important to realize that the purpose of these
machinations is to induce a state of suggestion, which
could have the effect of heightening the power of
suggestion of the operator and reducing the role of reason
in the subject, the purpose of which might challenge or
undermine the operator‟s objectives.
  MAO PIONEERED BOTH MASS INDOCTRINATION OF CITIZENS AND
INTERROGATION OF PRISONERS USING THOUGHT REFORM TECHNIQUES

As we speak, there are places in the world where the old
style of hypnotic induction and its reliance on an
authority figure is used widely. These are countries where
dictators freely rule, subjecting their citizens to the
vagaries of their will. Two very good examples of this are
North Korean leader, Kim Jong II and Iran‟s Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad, both of which have decided to making nuclear
arms their key to developing international prestige and the
respect of their people.    Both of them conspicuously use
mind control techniques to reinforce the power of their
dictatorships. Kim Jong II uses very common, secular
methodologies to reinforce his Cult of Personality, whereas
Ahmadinejad has woven himself, either deceptively or with
his own beliefs, into a theology of myth that puts him as a
central power in a uniquely Iranian end-of-the-world
scenario.

       HYPNOSIS AND DICTATORSHIP - part III


A successor to his father, Kim Jong-il, like Saddam
Hussein, has used his country as a huge picture album to
house thousands of pictures of his image. It is no accident
that the symbol of Iraqui liberation was a huge head of
Saddam‟s being toppled in a city square.    Like Kim Jong-
il‟s father, Kim Il-sung, Saddam made sure that school
children were chanting his name. The children in North
Korea actually thanked Kim Il-sung‟s father for their many
favors, as though the Communist dictator was a God.     Kim
Il-sung was known to his people as “Great Leader” and Kim
Jong-il, whose great gifts to his people were outrageous
poverty and nuclear weapons, is addressed as “Dear Leader.”
We all know the common form of address in the German
military during World War II was “Heil Hitler.” Stalin‟s
image- plastered everywhere in the Soviet Union. Elevation
of the leader to a god, to an ultimate authority, is the
first step in the hypnotism of the masses.

In Iran, the power of Ahmadinejad may be linked to another
route of creating bondage to an authority, a linkage to a
great myth, elevating Iran and its citizenry to a unique
place in the world scheme of things. In Hitler‟s case, the
German people thought of themselves as the the Aryan race,
the rightful rulers of all of mankind, heir to the throne
of the Third Reich.    In Iran‟s case, the Iranian people,
through Ahmadinejad, is linked to coming Messiah of Islam,
the 12th Iman or Mahdi, who will after a great cataclysm,
usher peace into the world. With a nuclear scythe rapidly
being forged in his ovens of hatred, Ahmadinejad sets his
eyes on the United States and Israel- bringing the Iranian
people into submission by the power of his personal
relationship to this new pre-messianic era of chaos and
destruction.    By virtue of his relationship to this
historic period, Ahmadinejad is skimming close to the wings
of the divine, becoming a „Great Leader,‟ of sorts, to his
own people.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's Shi'ite creed has convinced
him lesser mortals can not only influence but hasten the
awaited return of the 12th Imam, known as the Mahdi. Iran's
dominant "Twelver" sect holds this will be Muhammad ibn
Hasan, the righteous descendant of the Prophet Muhammad. He
is said to have gone into "occlusion" in the 9th century,
at age 5. His return will be preceded by cosmic chaos, war,
bloodshed   and    pestilence.   After    this   cataclysmic
confrontation between the forces of good and evil, the
Mahdi will lead the world to an era of universal peace.

"The ultimate promise of all Divine religions," says
Ahmadinejad, "will be fulfilled with the emergence of a
perfect human being [the 12th Imam], who is heir to all
prophets. He will lead the world to justice and absolute
peace. Oh mighty Lord, I pray to you to hasten the
emergence of your last repository, the promised one." He
reckons the return of the Imam, AWOL for 11 centuries, is
only two years away.




 IRAN’S CURRENT REGIME? – GUARDIAN OF THE PROPHETIC FUTURE

Mr. Ahmadinejad is close to the messianic Hojjatieh
Society, which is governed by the conviction the 12th
Imam's return will be hastened by "the creation of chaos on
Earth." He has fired Iran's most experienced diplomats and
scores of other officials, presumably those who don't share
his belief in apocalyptic conflagration. The Iranian
leader's finger on a nuclear trigger would be disquieting
under any circumstances. Positively alarming would be a
nuclear weapon in the hands of a man who badgers Israel,
the U.S. and the European Union in belief a pre-emptive
aerial attack on Iran's nuclear facilities will hasten the
return of the missing Mahdi. Such an attack presumably
would trigger anti-Western mayhem throughout the Middle
East.
When he became Iran's sixth president since the 1979
revolution last summer, Mr. Ahmadinejad decided to donate
$20 million to the Jamkaran mosque, a popular pilgrimage
site where the faithful can drop their missives to the
"Hidden Imam" in a holy well. Tehran's working-class
faithful are convinced the new president and his Cabinet
signed a "compact" pledging themselves to precipitate the
return of the Mahdi -- and dropped it down Jamkaran's well
with the Mahdi's zip code.

                    Volume 1 No. 12

               slaves of mind control

One interesting book that has just come out is by a man
named Pierre S. Freeman, who spent twenty-four years in an
organization called the Ancient Mystical Order Of Rosæ
Crucis.

According to a recent press release titled, “FREEMAN CLAIMS
24 YEARS OF REMOTE CAPTIVITY BY AMORC,” dated 03/31/2008,
“The   Prisoner    of   San  Jose”   documents   “    Secret
Indoctrination   Techniques  of  Rosicrucian   Order.”   The
release goes on to say:

”Pierre S. Freeman‟s new book, “The Prisoner of San Jose,”
exposes the invasive psychological methods of a secretive
Rosicrucian cult based in Canada but with its American
headquarters in San Jose, California. Not only does this
book expose the shadowy world of the Rosicrucian order-
with its secret vows, invisible Masters and omnipotent
authority, but also it sheds light on a technique of mind
control    Freeman    calls    „Remote    Indoctrination.‟”

”The amazing story of Pierre S. Freeman‟s enslavement by a
mind control cult begins in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, where
Freeman was pursuing an engineering degree at the Faculte
des Sciences. At this point, a star pupil, Freeman was
seduced by the promises of economic freedom offered by the
occult and began to invest more time in the Rosicrucian
lessons than in his own engineering studies. These
teachings   were   mostly  delivered  through  monographs,
developed by Spencer H. Lewis in the early part of the
twentieth century. The monographs promised spiritual and
material success when followed deliberately. Through these
methods, the so-called Ancient and Mystic Order of Rosae
Crucis, commonly known as A.M.O.R.C., would equip the
student to face the world from an elevated spiritual
perspective. By entering into these teachings, Freeman
would encounter severe poverty, homelessness, loss of
career, family and friends.”

”According to the book, “The Prisoner of San Jose, “ the
power of AMORC lay in its adherence to many mind control
practices chronicled by experts like Stephen Hassan, author
of “Combating Cult Mind Control” and Margaret Thaler
Singer, now deceased, who wrote “Cults in Our Midst: the
Hidden Menace in Our Everyday Lives.” Although Hassan and
Singer‟s cults were generally centers of highly aggressive
in-your-face, person-to-person behavior, Pierre found, to
his astonishment, the much less obvious techniques of
remote indoctrination, practiced by AMORC, rendered the
same kind of personality-altering conditions spoken of by
both   authors.    Pierre  found   that   understanding   the
conventional methods of cult indoctrination gave him the
cues to uproot enough of his mental and emotional condition
to reverse some of the psychological damage that led to his
inability to let go of the cult and to allow him to begin
to   reverse    engineer  his    psychological   entrapment.”

”The Prisoner of San Jose, subtitled “How I Escaped From
Rosicrucian Mind Control,” has been released this month by
Wheatmark Publishing in Tucson AZ. It is available online
and at bookstores in the US. Books published by Wheatmark
are sold on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Borders.com,
BooksAMillion.com,   Target.com   and   at   the   Wheatmark
Bookstore at www.wheatmark.com/bookstore.” This release and
other information about the book can be found at

             the ILLUSIONIST DIGEST
                     Volume 1 No. 8

Last week, we discussed a new book, The Prisoner of San
Jose, by Pierre S. Freeman, a Haitian-born writer, who
describes his 24-year membership in an organization called
the Ancient Mystical Order Of Rosæ Crucis. Besides Frances
Bacon, Sir Isaac Newton and Benjamin Franklin, the
membership of Sirhan Sirhan, the indicted assassin of
Robert Kennedy may also be noted.

There are many sides to this controversial assassination,
including the claim of some individual CIA agents involved
in the plot, but one thing seems fairly clear, Sirhan
Sirhan joined this AMORC in 1968 and was involved in the
same processes of membership that Freeman was. In the
provocative video, RFK Must Die by BBC Journalist, Shane
O‟Sullivane,   Sirhan‟s  own  brother  discusses  Sirhan‟s
membership in the order.

In Shadow Play by William Klaber and Philip H. Melanson,
that "Perhaps to fill the void created by his lost dream
(his dream of becoming a , and to overcome the physical
pain that his numerous doctors could not abate, Sirhan
fervently embraced the realm of the mind: self-hypnosis,
mind control, mysticism. He practiced the mental projection
of images and ideas. He frequented one Pasadena bookstore
that specialized in the occult and got a part-time job at
another. There he read books he could not afford to buy,
books with titles like The Laws of Mental Domination,
Thought Power: Its Control and Culture and Meditations on
the Occult Life: The Hidden Power.”
              WAS HE A VICTIM OF MIND CONTROL?

"Sirhan also joined the Rosicrucians, a self-described
„ancient mystical order.' In May 1968 he paid $20 to join
after seeing an ad in a newspaper."

               Shadow Play by Klaber and Melanson, p. 182

When the police searched Sirhan‟s room, they found
literature from AMORC in the room, including a Rosicrucian
Digest. There were two spiral notebooks with strange
writing and some incriminating passages. Members of AMORC,
like Pierre S. Freeman, were encouraged to keep journals,
which they wrote in during their sessions in their Home
Sanctum, a Home Sanctum being a kind of altar in which the
Rosicrucian would meditate, pray and study his monographs.

There is no evidence that would link the Rosicrucian
organization with the murder of Robert Kennedy and, to the
best of my knowledge, it has never been implied. But there
is evidence, as in Freeman‟s book, that the practices of
this Home Study can be linked to cult indoctrination,
various degrees of trance including a depth sufficient to
promote positive hallucinations (where something created in
the   mind   appears  real)  and   a   profound   change   of
personality,   something  reported   by   Freeman   regarding
himself in his book and something definitively reported
about Sirhan Sirhan.

There has been a persistent rumor that Sirhan Sirhan‟s
claim that he could not remember the Kennedy assassination
was hypnotically induced and this his handlers or their
agents were directly involved with the assassination.
Whether or not these rumors of other conspirators are true,
there is a case for speculating that Sirhan Sirhan was a
victim of mind controlm, partially owing to his capacity
for achieving a certain depth of trance during hypnosis.
