CHAPTER 1-1

Freud, Renfield, and David Byrne

> I contradict myself. I am large. I am small.

-Walt Whitman

 

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

straps."

 

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

superior master.

 

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

technology.

 

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

whims.

 

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

ground?"

 

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

a pig?"

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

electronic management.

CHAPTER 1-2

Freud, Renfield, and David Byrne

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

like "O"?

 

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

evidence.

 

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

pocket.)

 

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-

domination-free situation.)

 

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

upgradable.

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

business.

CHAPTER 1-3

Freud, Renfield, and David Byrne

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

person.

 

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

greedy tyrant.

 

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

word, "Slack."

 

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,

career.

 

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.
