Two very public cases do a good job of portraying the broad means by which mind control could be used to coerce or trick someone into being an actual Manchurian Candidate. Sirhan Sirhan, the shooter who killed Robert F. Kennedy, apparently believed that he was in a shooting range, and nobody was in any danger. He believed he was touched by an angel, a strangely beautiful woman, on the shoulder; just before the shooting range hallucination began. After the assassination, he stood in disbelief, waiting to be apprehended, no attempt was made to escape. On the far side of the gamut, mind control could be used for an extended period of time to foster a life long delusion.
Mark David Chapman believed he was being tempted by the devil, and that he spoke to God. Just before shooting John Lennon, Chapman saw "Thou Shalt Not Kill" flash on a television screen, manipulation of television programming is a common theme among mind control victims. These cases might also point you in the right direction of the perpetrator of the crime, or you could look at John Hinkley Jr. and Lee Harvey Oswald, but I'm not sure how you could link those together.
Timelike Synchronicity is the fingerprint of a monolithic entity behind the prophetic authoring of 1984 and Brave New World, a pattern which manifests in the cases of several assassins who have been linked to a mind control conspiracy. This pattern is noted by equidistant spans of years between pivotal events topically pertinent to the microcosmic pattern. Sirhan Sirhan, in a parallel to Orwell and Huxley's entry to Eton (Eden), had 12 years pass between his birth in Jerusalem and his entry to the United States of America. Exactly 12 years later he assassinated Robert F. Kennedy in 1968. This same year is the midpoint between John Hinkley Jr,'s birth, and the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan. Exactly 12 years later, in 1980, Mark David Chapman assassinated John Lennon, the midpoint between his birth, and the Reagan assassination attempt was also 1968. This year also happens to be the midpoint of the arrest and trial of Clay L. Shaw, as well as the midpoint between the assassination of JFK, and the suspicious death of Shaw.
Ironically, or perhaps telling, Lee Harvey Oswald has no noticeable synchronicity.
Martin Luther King, assassinated in 1968, with implications of COINTELPRO and government involvement entered seminary in 1948,the midpoint between his birth and death; and also the year 1984 was written. Incidentally 1984 began on the day of King's assassination, April 4.
Non coincidentally, this pattern of equidistant periods has also been revealed in the ELS Bible Code. A number of assassinations, overlapping significantly with the group above, were decoded within the text of Moby Dick, written over a hundred years before they occurred.
It's not just the assassins.
While the ability to “remotely control” a human being is without doubt within the capabilities of intelligence organizations such as the Central Intelligence Agency, MI-6, and the former KGB, remote neural stimulation could also be much more subtle. It could be used to make you ignore, or not care about something that you would otherwise find important, like democracy, privacy, and freedom of speech. It could make you believe that something you read which you would otherwise find intelligent and thought provoking is.. off the wall. Mind control could be used to make you forgive a person or an organization, maybe your government for something that you probably shouldn't forgive them for. It is possible that it would be so subtle that you would never, ever know it was happening to you. Much like Mark David Chapman, many could be made to blame "inner demons" for their actions, despite resounding evidence to the contrary.
I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss.
In the late 1940's, two monumental events, whose origin is decidedly unearthly, shaped the future of America and the world. The whole of America was gripped with reported sightings of flying saucers, epitomized by the RAAF cover up of a UFO crash in Roswell, NM. At the very same time, the CIA began researching mind control, these experiments would coincide temporally with the phenomenon of alien contact.
Had an alien craft been recovered, what kind of technology would be on board? Perhaps these two things are liked by more than time, but rather the UFO phenomenon was the very source of the mind control technology — a technology which evolved so rapidly between 1948 and 1963 that it certainly appears that it was being reverse engineered, rather than developed from scratch.
For working technology to have been developed by the time of the congressional hearings on the subjects, with enough time for a significant number of records to have been destroyed prior to the end of the hearings, it is almost undeniable that it had to be given to the CIA. So far ahead of modern neuroscience would the Agency have had to have been, that it would have been impossible for them to have not used public research, leaking significant advances in knowledge of neural function that did not occur.
What does it all mean?
The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.
This is one example of the influence of an intelligent force over assassinations. There are others, clearly it wants us to know. These assassinations, and their popular culture relation to mind control, and the MK-ULTRA program add a piece to the puzzle of The Octopus. Like the delivery of the prescient messages in the Dystopic and apocalyptic works, there is nearly no other alternative explanation for its very existence other than a technology which can manipulate the thoughts and actions of humans… without them knowing.
