A doctor of psychology, Eldon Taylor is an expert in mind control and brainwashing. He discussed his work on the power of positive thinking and beliefs, and how our mind holds the key to success and failure, sickness and health. In many instances, belief has defied laws of science such as in the case of miraculous recoveries or levitation, he reported. However, it's not just about optimistic thinking, because sometimes this approach can be self-destructive, with a person overlooking dangers or failing to recognize opportunities. It's about examining the beliefs that we have-- most people are actually sabotaged by their belief system, more than they are assisted by it, he revealed. For example, many tell themselves they are unable to do a certain task or skill.
By examining one's belief system, and discovering inconsistencies and beliefs that fail to serve us, a person can move toward a life with more integrity and concern for others, Taylor commented. He touched on his work with subliminal suggestion and noted how commercials reinforce the idea that the viewer is deficient in something, which sends a negative message to people who are typically in a hyper-suggestible state while watching TV. "We are our own worst enemies," and have to rise above all this negative programming, he continued.
Dr. Taylor introduced the concept of "falsophrenia," in which people are leading unexamined lives, with their goals induced by media messages. "We're frenetic about consumption," driven by a force he called "more"-- more security, possessions, money, time, power. All of that comes because we haven't stopped long enough to find out who we really are, he said. "Talking to ourselves in a positive way, the way we would talk to a loved one, does indeed make a significant difference," he added.
Phoenix Lights Anniversary
On this night, the 15th anniversary of the unexplained "Phoenix Lights" sightings, Dr. Lynne Kitei reviewed the case, in the first hour of the show. There were multiple events, over many hours on the night of March 13, 1997, which the military tried but failed to reenact several years later, she noted. It was estimated that over 10,000 witnesses saw the lights, some of whom described a two-mile-wide ship with windows that had orbs leaving the main craft, she detailed.
