Throughout history one impression of human nature has been
consistent: that man is a loser. Most often it has been
expressed as a dual nature of stupidity and arrogance.
It has been expressed mythologically, philosophically, and
religiously, usually without first having been asked.
Always it has been seen as a conflict: the conflict of good
and "Bob" and evil; the lower nature of cheeseburgers and pig-
fucking, and the higher nature of slack incorporating the
cheeseburgers and the pig-fucking; or of the inner mind, and
the outer limits. "Some mornings," said Emo Phillips, "it
just doesn't seem worth it to gnaw through the leather
That man can aspire to and achieve goodness is disproved
through all of history, however that goodness may be
distorted. David saw goodness supremely as genocide, Socrates
essentially as pederasty, and Jesus centrally as about
eighteen different things, judging from his posthumous
archivists; yet they all agreed that virtue, however
understood, was a waste of time.
When Sigmund Freud appeared on the scene in the early
century, the sphincter of knowledge was subjected to a new
probe, the discipline of scientific inquiry. Freud's
fundamental contribution was his theory that the warring
factions of stupidity and arrogance existed in the
unconscious, as opposed to the left or the right sides, or in
some instances, the liver. Tentative names were given to the
combatants: the Supereggo became thought of as the restrictive
controlling force over the Od (lewd, perverted and impolite
drives), with the Eggo as an irresolute referee operating out
of "enlightened indecision" ('Vaffellingen').
We are deeply indebted to Freud for his efforts to wrench
vast amounts of money from the pathetic and neurotic:
efforts which have established the theoretical foundation upon
which we build today. Through the years unethical scholars
and clinicians have elaborated, systematized, and added to his
theories to reach a point where, through years of expensive
psychoanalysis, the 50% rate of spontaneous healing in
psychiatric patients has remained at exactly 50%. And yet,
the "suckers within" have remained elusive, and these
individuals have retained assets that could properly be
transferred to professionals seeking to profit from others'
misery. And hence, the purpose of this book.
I stood in the lobby of a theater at the end of the showing
of the motion picture 'Independence Day' and listened to a
number of comments by people who had just seen the picture:
"I bet the military is trying to hide the alien monsters!"
"And I bet the media is in on the conspiracy." "Why would
they allow a movie like that to be made, then?" "Yeah, I
guess they wouldn't--unless they just want us to get used
to the idea of aliens." "You'd have to be a psychologist to
figure it all out!" I got the impression that here is a fine
batch of sheep waiting to be sheared. Rubes with too much
loot. "Imagine that!", I thought, "Aliens who would actually
give a shit about what happens to a bunch of pinks?"
We are dutifully impressed by formulations such as Freud's
definition of psychoanalysis as a "dynamic exchange which
reduces the size of the patients' wallet with respect to that
of the psychoanalysts' checking account." Such a definition
and its countless elaborations may be useful to "the
professionals," but how useful are these formulations to we
second-tier scam artists? Sure, alien monsters as a fear
factor is a useful tack to squeeze a few bucks from some poor,
terrified sap. The question is, As therapists can we
accentuate that terror into making our followers virtual
slaves in perpetual bondage to our wicked and sordid whims?
Restating esoteric psychoanalytic ideas in even more esoteric
terms does not reach people where they live, and does not
terrify them into abject servility. As a consequence the
subjugation of ordinary folk is often reduced to their just
buying a book, instead of compelling them to seek out the
practitioners' colony of mind-numbed servants and sex toys,
with the singular goal of being controlled and used by a
In a sense, one of the estranging factors of the present day
is the lag between our desire to become as wealthy and
powerful as possible, and our willingness to be as
bloodthirsty, grasping and insensitive as an ambitious Chinese
warlord; which continues to widen the gulf between specialists
and nonspecialists. As space belongs to the aliens--control,
domination and tyranny belong only to those who are capable of
expressing these qualities. This is an understandable
development; yet the problems of nonunderstanding are so great
that means must be devised to keep that fine edge of utter
brutality up to date with the latest developments in
In the field of microelectronics an answer to this dilemma
was attempted in the development of the "microchip" now being
implanted in elementary school students throughout the
country. The new microchip is not so much a new form of
compulsion as of communication of subservient ideas, answering
questions not only of self-esteem and self-importance, but why
it is better to serve ones master and the state with
unquestioned loyalty, so that the excitement of being a
productive cog will not remain exclusively in the laboratory
but can also exist in comprehensible form in society at large.
The science of neural control is not new, but we would find
ourselves handicapped if we were still to use the Ch'in
Dynastic, Napoleonic, or Hitlerian methods of mass domination.
We recognize and appreciate the creative thinking which the
earlier systems represented, but we do not encumber today's
work with those now less-effective methods.
This is my position with regard to Transactional Analysis.
As much as I disregard those with whom I work, I respect the
devoted efforts of the psychodominationists and outright
sadists of the past. What I hope to demonstrate in this book
is a new way to demonstrate the ineffectuality and inferiority
of most people, in as inimical and deprecating a way as
possible, then set them up to be submissive and passive to my
Once upon a time, an old farmer, sitting on a fence post
next to a country road, was approached by an earnest young
salesman who was making farm-to-farm calls for the purpose of
selling potrzeebie repair kits. After a polite and polished
speech the young man asked the farmer if he would like to buy
one, to which the old man replied, "Gotta feed th' pigs."
He then hopped off the fence, picked up the nearest pig, and
held it up to an apple tree, so that it could pick and eat
ripe apples. When it had its fill, he picked up the next
one, and so on.
The young man was puzzled and asked, "Wouldn't it be easier
to shake the tree and let the pigs eat the apples on the
To which the farmer replied, "Why'd that be easier?"
Then the young man said, "Well...you'd save a lot of time,
for one thing."
To which the farmer just shrugged and said, "What's time to
The young salesman, realizing that this farmer was an idiot,
asked him if he had a daughter.
And I think you can see where this is leading.
The purpose of this book is not only the presentation of new
data but also an answer to the question, unasked, of why we
cannot abuse others worse than we do right now. You may know
that the experts have had a lot to say about human behavior,
but this knowledge does not seem to have the slightest effect
on how to control their minds or their lives, or those of
their children. You may find yourself turning to "Dear Abby,"
or imagine yourself as a corporate executive in a "Dilbert"
cartoon, but is their anything both profound and simple
related to the dynamics of mass manipulation which will help
you find new answers to old problems? Is there any
information available which will allow you to control, to
dominate, to utterly degrade and dehumanize others, which is
both true and ruthless?
Our search for answers has until recent years been limited
by the fact that we could only truly abuse the body, but the
mysteries of how the brain stores memories and how these
memories are evoked to produce fear, anguish and guilt, have
now become readily accessible to all kinds of insidious

THE BRAIN SURGEON WITH THE PROBE
Any hypothesis must depend for its verification on
observable evidence, hopefully involving the infliction of
pain on the experimental subject. Until recently there has
been little evidence about how the brain functions in
cognition, decision making and "free will", or how the
development of mutated tumorous growths may stimulate perverse
tendencies. How much of the memory can be scrubbed? Can it
be easily overwritten? Can females be programmed to act more
One noted explorer in this field is Dr. Maxfield Renfield,
M.D., C.P.A., a neurosurgeon (the student and protege of the
famous Dr. Friedrich Frankenstein) who in 1951 began to
produce exciting evidence to confirm and modify theoretical
concepts which had been formulated in answer to these
questions. During the course of brain transplantation
surgery, replacing the brain of a normal subject with an that
of an aberrant one, Renfield conducted a series of experiments
during which he inserted dozens of red-hot stainless steel
needles into the healthy brain, to bore holes that could then
be filled with powerful mutagenic agents. To then stimulate
the brain further, he administered powerful electrical shocks
transmitted through a galvanic probe. His observations of the
responses to these stimulations were accumulated over a period
of several years, despite continued harassment and
investigation by the authorities. In each case the patient
was fully conscious and in agony during the exploration of the
cerebral cortex and was able to answer questions pertaining to
national security to Renfield. In the course of these
experiments he heard some amazing things.
Renfield found that the stimulating electrode could force
recollection of the most embarrassing and humiliating aspects
of a patient's life, and that by implanting a crude FM
receiver in the place of some less-than-important part of the
brain, he could remotely humiliate the individual in public,
forcing them to recount or reenact for others these disgusting
desires and actions. Of course, shortly thereafter, the
malignant tumor would end their life, unless Renfield chose to
detonate a small bomb in the FM receiver module to destroy the
One of Renfield's significant conclusions was that the
electrode evoked only a single recollection or action, thus
requiring the use of dozens, or even hundreds of electrodes to
fully facilitate even crude "thought control."
Perhaps the most significant discovery was that through the
use of chemically-induced post-hypnotic suggestion, entire
blocks of a person's memory could be rewritten; which instead
of falling prey to the rapid degeneration which usually exists
in such programming, could be automatically reinforced by
electrical stimulation. This made it almost impossible for
his patients to testify against Renfield in court (but on the
off-chance, his lawyer also had an FM transmitter in his
Renfield reported that, "The psychical experience, thus
produced, stops only when the patient wears aluminum foil on
the inside of his hat, thus interfering with the electronic
signals. Therefore, it is critical that a major part of the
programming consists of an extreme aversion to radio-free
environments." (It should be noted that today, with the use
of microwave and cellular-link crossover control systems, a
subject would be hard pressed to find an electronic-
Recollections are evoked by the stimuli of day-to-day
experience in much the same way that they are evoked by
microchips and direct transmissions to the brain, so it is
essential that such direct control measures also take into
account the ability to erase memories, and cause the subject
to both ignore certain prohibited sensory inputs and
rationalize them away as "delusional."
The following reports of two subjects illustrate the way in
which stimulations by control systems failed tragically.
A twenty-year-old female patient had been directed to seduce
a potentially threatening target, then to perform an act of
fellatio on him in public, with her head exploding at the
point of orgasm, severly embarrasing him. Unfortunately, her
identity-recognition programming was so poorly written that
she first offered, then began to fellate every male she
encountered. By the time her head finally exploded (and not
as planned, but from a milliampere overcharge from some guy's
car radio), the waiting queue was over two blocks long.
After stealing the subjects' corpse from the County Morgue,
Dr. Renfield had to replace the entire head, not only because
of the damage inflicted by the explosion, but by his inability
to remove the silly grin from her face.
Dr. Renfield concluded that identity-recognition programming
was vital to effective control, if for no other reason, to
insure that the subject can identify it's creator as master.
The failure of another subject's programming had far graver
consequences. This individual was possessed of a below-
average I.Q., and unbeknownst to Dr. Renfield, who had
programmed him with the behavior engrams of a semi-intelligent
goat--enhanced by direct reception of late 1950's television,
his brain tumor had remissed into a semi-benign state. The
worst problem was that the FM unit (and thus the explosive
charge) had somehow become damaged. Then, before the subject
could be otherwise terminated, he successfully ran for, and
was elected to the United States Senate.
This illustrates another of Renfield's conclusions: never
rely on a single means of neutralizing a subject. If nothing
else, the power might go out on your FM transmitter.
In summary we may conclude:
1. The brain is just another toy that we may play God with.
2. Monitor brain tumors very carefully. One never knows when
a subject might develop paranormal powers, or worse, go into
remission, remember, and want revenge.
3. Control, control, control. If you don't control your
subjects someone else will. Be sure that they are
housebroken, and remember that 'you' made them, so 'you' have
to take care of them.
4. Laymen seldom appreciate the quality of your work, so
never invite outsiders into your lab.
5. Don't scrimp with hardware. Two million years of human
evolution deserve better than Radio Shack. Be sure it's
6. The same rules apply to software. Take the time to run
a few simulations first. Don't forget to register for patches
and free upgrades.
7. (Important) Don't ever fool yourself into wanting "peer
review" for your research. Jealousies run high in this

A BASIC SCIENTIFIC UNIT: THE MONETARY TRANSACTION
One of the reasons for the criticism that the psychodomination
sciences are unscientific, and that we are all "mad," yes,
that's what they call us--"mad," is that there has been no
basic unit to quantify success. It is the same problem that
confronted physicists before they discovered alien technology
and physicians before they created that collection of elitist
dolts, the A.M.A.
David Byrne, best known as a musician, but known throughout
our circles as the originator of Transactional Analysis (in
partnership with Brian Eno,) isolated and defined this basic
scientific unit: "money."
The unit of social intercourse is money. If two or more
people encounter each other...sooner or later one of them
will get money from the other, or give some indication of
interest in giving their money to the other. This is called
transactional stimulus, and whether it be in the manner of
sex, business or violence, the other person will do
something which is in some way related to the stimulus;
whether it is in the form of demonstrating arousal,
proffering goods, or attacking/running away from the first
But his Transactional Analysis transcended the mere "filthy
lucre" to recognize that other factors: such as the "personal
power" to force other people to accept your desires and whims;
"sexual potency" to ensure pleasurable decadence; and the
blanket concept of "god-like omnipotence," to cover your butt--
also are vital elements of the penultimate control-freak and
Byrne strove to combine these four elements into a unified
whole, eventually labeling it by borrowing a term from what is
believed to be an ancient northern Trans-Sino Mesopolynesianist
But soon his partner, Brian Eno, realized that "slack," by
itself, even as a unified whole, still only represented one
factor within the cosmic force known as the "Luck Plane."
...ergo, Transactional Analysis is the method of examining
this one transaction wherein "I do anything I want to you
and you are powerless to stop me"; but it must include the
determination on which portion of the "Luck Plane" the
'user' resides (either the east or the west side), and thus
establishing his chances for success. Only then, when he
realizes that he will accomplish his goals, will he then be
ultimately free to steal from and oppress others.
In this way, he recognized that "slack" can at times be
startlingly fickle; all in one day impoverishing an individual,
then winning the lottery for them, then causing them to run
afoul of the mob. Central to Eno's thesis was the abolition
of the concept of a "right" (good) or "wrong" (evil) use for
"slack." In other words, he debunked and refuted the
traditions of two-thousand year old religions by asserting
that one's 'intent' or 'actions' have no bearing whatsoever
on either their "slack" or their position on the "Luck Plane."
Byrne's research efforts were thus transformed again into
both somehow causing a geometric increase in his own personal
"slack" and an effort to somehow remain permanently entrenched
on the east side of the "Luck Plane."
To accomplish this he realized that Transactional Analysis
must possess a practical method of systematizing the
information derived from analyzing the brain waves and thought
patterns of the critical number of subjects, from which a
generic mass-programming module could be generated.
The importance of this was to bypass the labor- and time-
intensive implantation surgery, and create, through the use of
electronic media, the capability to coerce the "slack" from
millions, or even billions of people at once.
This amounted to somehow conveying this programming to
others, so that, by a still unknown process, they would be
inclined to almost magically direct all of their available
slack towards Byrne. Being a talented musician and composer
he conceived the idea that, by including his mass-programming
module into music, vast numbers of people would be subtlely
inclined to provide him with the "slack" necessary to control
the world. Unfortunately, after a few modest successes, his
absconded "slack" turned against him, propelling him to the
west side of the luck plane and disaster. This consisted of
his marrying a band member who was perhaps the most slackless
individual who ever lived, with the exception of Linda
McCartney or Yoko Ono.
The violent discharge of "slack" from his body resulted in
permanent neurological damage most distinguished by violent
and unpredictable spasms, and the utter destruction of his
cerebral cortex, which ended his scientific, if not musical,
However, his concept of pilfering "slack" from others
through the use of electronic media has since been improved
upon and enlarged with a realization that escaped Byrne in his
scientific model: that a far less powerful mass-programming
module, subtly introduced into television transmissions, while
not returning the enormous immediate dividends of stolen
"slack" from a given target audience, would still return, over
the long-term, far more of 'das product,' whose uptake by the
responsible programmer would be far less dangerous.
It was also learned that when this raw "slack" was filtered
through a transubstantiation condenser it would produce
vast quantities of "para-slack," much higher in quality than
"false slack," yet less likely to propel one from the east to
the west side of the "Luck Plane."
To this day, we are still grateful for his innovation of
integrating this programming into popular music. And even
though he never achieved the stardom of other popular
musicians, the "mega-stars" of pop, whose bubblegum studio
sound (dubbed over "socially conscious" music videos) have
provided us with vast quantities of practical "para-slack," he
will be remembered long hence in the unethical scientific
community as one of the great modern innovators.
