Many Veterans report the spontaneous occurance of disturbing marks, burns and bruises on their bodies. Most of these marks appear when they think of traumatic events, or commit 'ThoughtCrime' to borrow Orwell's term; that is they think of exposing the programs they have been involved in. Sometimes these involuntary reactions take the form of nausea, asthma, and heart palpitations. All of these responses can be created via conditioning/hypnosis, and most of the marks involve histamine production/allergic reactions. It is important to realize that we are dealing with very hypnotically suceptable individuals, who can produce a wide spectrum of hypnotically evokeable responses.
There has been a great deal of research done in the field of Psychoimmunology concerning the use of Pavlovian conditioning to modify immune reactions. There are citations concerning conditioning guinea pigs to produce allergic reactions when a bell is rung, etc. Here are some that I found involving a Dr. Ader of the University of Rochester. Please see the citations below.
It is interesting to note that the upstate New York area has figured in many reports of Mind Control research, given the closeness of Cornell University, Colgate, where Estabrooks worked, close proximity to the Canadian border, enabling border-hopping for prohibited research, such as Dr. Cameron's.
Mark Phillips and Cathy O'Brien of "Global Trance Formation Info Ltd." have spoken at length of the uses of immune system related programming to control veterans. Mark Phillips is a self-admitted 'good' ex-CIA researcher who worked on Human Potential enhancement kinds of work involving bio-feedback and the like. He was told about blacker programs by a third party, and then introduced to Cathy O'Brien, a veteran of Project Monarch
I believe that Ms. O'Brien's story is told in the new researcher's edition of Operation Mind Control, and more fully in an upcoming book by Phillips and O'Brien. VERY briefly, she says that she has been a victim of severe abuse and mind control programming from infancy, carried out at first by her father, then other govt. researchers and M.I. officers. This abuse lead to full MPD and the creation of many programmed alters, all tasked with specific behaviours, trained using classical negative conditioning techniques. O'Brien claims to have been a sexual slave for many highly placed Michigan and national government oifficials. Phillips was evidently given her cues and triggers by the third party and rescued O'Brien from her captivity.
Although her story sounds incredible at first, I have run into at least two other veterans who can corroberate portions of her story. To be skeptical for a moment though, Phillips' role in all of this needs more careful scrutiny, especially consideration of the motivation of the third party for giving Phillips this information, and whether some of Ms. O'Brien's recollections may have been planted or programmed. Regardless of the specifics of her recollections, it is very evident that she suffered the kinds of abuse that she recollects, and was subjected to sophisticated programming efforts by some parties. This is not just your average, every day child abuse survivor.

TI - Pavlovian conditioning of the immune system. [Review] SO - International Archives of Allergy & Immunology 1994 Oct;105(2):101-6 AB - In the classical Pavlovian conditioning paradigm, a stimulus that unconditionally elicits a physiological response is repeatedly paired with a neutral stimulus that does not elicit that same response. Eventually, the neutral stimulus becomes a conditioned stimulus in that it elicits the physiological response in the absence of an unconditioned stimulus. Here we summarize experiments in which Pavlovian conditioning has revealed an intimate relationship between the central nervous system and the immune system.

TI - Psychoneuroimmunology: conditioning and stress. [Review] SO - Annual Review of Psychology 1993;44:53-85 AB - The acquisition and extinction of the conditioned suppression or enhancement of one or another parameter of antigen-specific and nonspecific defense system responses have been documented in different species under a variety of experimental conditions. Similarly, stressful stimulation influences antigen-specific as well as nonspecific reactions. Moreover, both conditioning and stressful stimulation exert biologically meaningful effects in the sense that they can alter the development and/or progression of what are presumed to be immunologically mediated pathophysiologic processes. These are highly reproducible phenomena that illustrate a functional relationship between the brain and the immune system. However, the extent to which one can generalize from one stressor to another or from one parameter of immunologic reactivity to another is limited. Few generalizations are possible because the direction and/or magnitude of the effects of conditioning and "stress" in modulating immune responses clearly depend on the quality and quantity of the behavioral interventions, the quality and quantity of antigenic stimulation, the temporal relationship between behavioral and antigenic stimulation, the nature of the immune response and the immune compartment in which it is measured, the time of sampling, a variety of host factors (e.g. species, strain, age, sex), and interactions among these several variables. It seems reasonable to assume that the immunologic effects of behaviorally induced neural and endocrine responses depend on (interact with) the concurrent immunologic events upon which they are superimposed. Conversely, the efficacy of immunologic defense mechanisms seems to depend on the neuroendocrine environment on which they are superimposed. We seek to determine when and what immunologic (or neuroendocrine) responses could be affected by what neuroendocrine (or immunologic) circumstances. We therefore need studies that provide a parametric analysis of the stimulus conditions, the neuroendocrine and/or immunologic state upon which they are superimposed, and the responses that are being sampled. The neural or neuroendocrine pathways involved in the behavioral alteration of immune responses are not yet known. Both conditioning and stressor-induced effects have been hypothesized to result from the action of adrenocortical steroids, opioids, and catecholamines, among others. Indeed, all of these have been implicated in the mediation of some immunologic effects observed under some experimental conditions. We assume that different conditioning and stressful environmental circumstances induce different constellations of neuroendocrine responses that constitute the milieu within which ongoing immunologic reactions and the response to immunologic signals occur.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS) [References: 224] NO - K05 MH-06318 (NIMH) 3 UI - 92168248 AU - Ader R AU - Cohen N IN - Department of Psychiatry, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, NY 14642. TI - Conditioning of the immune response. [Review] SO - Netherlands Journal of Medicine 1991 Oct;39(3-4):263-73 AB - Experimental studies in humans and experimental animals document the acquisition and extinction of classically conditioned alterations of different parameters of humoral- and cell-mediated immune responses. Although the aversive effects of cyclophosphamide in a taste aversion learning paradigm has been the most frequently used model, conditioned immunomodulatory effects are not confined to this conditioning procedure, and they are not limited to cyclophosphamide or, for that matter, the use of immunomodulating drugs as unconditioned stimuli. Conditioned changes in immunologic reactivity have also been found to modulate the progression of spontaneously-developing or experimentally-induced pathophysiological processes in experimental animals. The available data on the immunoregulatory effects of conditioning indicate that the immune system, like other systems operating in the interests of homeostasis, is integrated with other physiological processes and is therefore influenced by and capable of influencing the brain.
