CONstructs: -Hallucination, Hypnosis and the Hexham Heads -#2

Written by Robert Bruce Baird


The bizarre story ofrepparttar Hexham Heads had been inrepparttar 145790 back of my mind for a number of years and exerted an increasing fascination as I became involved inrepparttar 145791 concept of energy encoding and storage in stone which were to lead to my involvement withrepparttar 145792 Dragon Project, an ad-hoc group of scientists and others interested in testingrepparttar 145793 idea that stone circles are associated with anomalous energy, overrepparttar 145794 period 1977-83 andrepparttar 145795 experiments atrepparttar 145796 Rollright Stones described in my book, Circles of Silence.

I had first encounteredrepparttar 145797 story ofrepparttar 145798 heads inrepparttar 145799 Reader’s Digest compendium Folklore, Myths and Legends of Britain in 1973. Inrepparttar 145800 Introduction to this popular work there was a lengthy aside byrepparttar 145801 well known Celtic scholar, Dr Anne Ross, then ofrepparttar 145802 University of Southampton, where she described her startling and very unpleasant experience with two Celtic carved stone heads, found inrepparttar 145803 garden of a council home in Hexham, Northumberland, which she had received for description and identificationrepparttar 145804 year before.

Carved stone heads are well known from many Celtic sites throughout Europe and are easily recognized through their distinctive features. Generally they date from eitherrepparttar 145805 Iron Age, beforerepparttar 145806 Romans overwhelmed Britain, orrepparttar 145807 Romano-British period…

In her own account Anne Ross described how, one night shortly after their arrival, she woke up suddenly at 2 a.m. feeling chilled and extremely frightened. Atrepparttar 145808 instant of awakening she saw a tall, jet black wolf-headed figure standing againstrepparttar 145809 faint white ofrepparttar 145810 open door. It then moved out intorepparttar 145811 corridor and she felt an irresistible urge to follow it.

This she did, seeing and hearingrepparttar 145812 figure clearly as it made its way downrepparttar 145813 darkened staircase and alongrepparttar 145814 corridor towardsrepparttar 145815 kitchen. Anne Ross describedrepparttar 145816 figure vividly, reporting not only its blackness and tallness but also its distinct part animal, part human appearance.

Asrepparttar 145817 creature nearedrepparttar 145818 kitchenrepparttar 145819 spell broke and Anne Ross felt fear overwhelm her and so she rushed upstairs to awaken her husband. Together they searchedrepparttar 145820 house for intruders but found no-one and nothing disturbed by any forced entry and eventually concluded that she must have suffered a particularly vivid nightmare, although Anne Ross notes that she could not reconcilerepparttar 145821 vividness ofrepparttar 145822 huge werewolf figure with a dream experience. Unsatisfied with this explanation they returned to sleep and since their children fortunately had not woken up they were not told ofrepparttar 145823 occurrence. At this point, of course, there was nothing to relaterepparttar 145824 event torepparttar 145825 presence ofrepparttar 145826 new heads, although Anne Ross notes in her account that she had thought their appearance unpleasant and had taken an instant dislike to them on arrival.

As Above, SO Below:

The ‘As Above, So Below’ law that isrepparttar combination of micro and macrocosmic reality likely comes from Hermes Trismegistus, a Babylonian who became a Pharaoh of Egypt according torepparttar 145789 Arab Encyclopedia. Barrett is probably right about him being a legendary amalgam of people, but so what? This kind of semantic, pedantic, academic, squabbling just confusesrepparttar 145790 issue and people get torepparttar 145791 point where they take one side or another, rather than integrate and seerepparttar 145792 effect ofrepparttar 145793 power-mongers. Inrepparttar 145794 time of Shakespearerepparttar 145795 cosmogony relatingrepparttar 145796 alchemic Dictum of Hermes was known asrepparttar 145797 Harmony ofrepparttar 145798 Spheres. This Dictum is pictured onrepparttar 145799 back of Barrett’s book Secret Societies as taken from ‘Macoy’s Cyclopedia’ of things Masonic. But I cannot rehash all these things again, too much. I find many debunkers are agents of deceit like Barrett. I also wonder how Michel de Notredame’s book escaped being onrepparttar 145800 Inquisitional Codex untilrepparttar 145801 De Medici’s had lost their influence centuries after his Prophecies were printed.

Hypnosis and Ritual, blackboards to balls:

There are many symbols and artistic creations that are able to contactrepparttar 145802 mind and set its archetypal memories or information systems in action. It is clear that animals have always foundrepparttar 145803 place where legs meet to be an enjoyable spot and it wasn’t all a learned response. We have a vestigial obsession or primal urge that accentuatesrepparttar 145804 importance of certain aesthetics which are part ofrepparttar 145805 archetypal knowledge. Millions of years of conditioning reinforcerepparttar 145806 lines and constructs of such things across a wide range of forms that become or became templates ofrepparttar 145807 energy flow. Which came first -repparttar 145808 form orrepparttar 145809 thought? On other occasions we seerepparttar 145810 mind is involved or affected into becoming hypnotized beyond relaxation. I suspectrepparttar 145811 mind or brain functioning is able to be affected by these symbols or suggestions which are difficult for people to consciously intercept throughrepparttar 145812 interface withrepparttar 145813 Thalami and their crystalline structure.

Boredom in classrooms can actually make students more receptive to implanted attitudes or acceptance ofrepparttar 145814 prevailing attitudes thatrepparttar 145815 paradigm re-inforces or ‘enforces’. In these mental states of semi or full hypnotic trance,repparttar 145816 mind becomes conditioned and almost thinksrepparttar 145817 programming came from ‘within’. Suggestopaedia is a technique developed by biophysicist Dr. Milan Ryzl that broadcasts overrepparttar 145818 barriers created by conscious processing. It could have great potential for good or bad application in education and learning. I can see how it might have something to do with meditation andrepparttar 145819 Thalami amplification to affect brain use. Inrepparttar 145820 short span of 15 minutes a person can have over 90% recall of a new language some two weeks later if I rememberrepparttar 145821 research as spoken about in Psychic Discoveries Behindrepparttar 145822 Iron Curtain.

However, my first wife took a course in teaching using this method and from what I saw ofrepparttar 145823 course material they took awayrepparttar 145824 music and chair that put a person intorepparttar 145825 altered state before beginningrepparttar 145826 information. I suppose it is another example of co-opting good ideas and making it seem like they have been tried. What good this does is beyond me. It isn’t as if humanity would not be better off if people could learn and take pride in thinking, is it? The co-operative learning that emphasizes all learning styles from linear logical to spatial creative is being employed similarly although I hearrepparttar 145827 US has some teachers who are actually usingrepparttar 145828 full technique. Hypnotists I have read, actually sayrepparttar 145829 authoritative symbols like a blackboard can and do cause hypnosis.

Some ofrepparttar 145830 symbols on stelae and megalithic structures would have power as well asrepparttar 145831 sacred or worshipful intent that minds can generate through increased expectation and belief. Who has not ‘felt’repparttar 145832 presence of past souls or thought therefrom in an old home? This ambience of textural sponges which soak uprepparttar 145833 energy is in all matter and its lattices of molecules. It makesrepparttar 145834 stone become more powerful asrepparttar 145835 ‘energy wells’ that Dr. Robins speaks to are filled to capacity. Someday we may be able to access some of this knowledge or understandrepparttar 145836 process as a result ofrepparttar 145837 effort of solid state chemists or physicists with an open mind. The ancients had more than a million years of observing and relating and they often didn’t have someone to tell them it was this or ‘that’, they just knew or ‘felt’ and observed. The Information Age inundates us with even more information and some of us are unable to focus and processrepparttar 145838 resultant data overflow. Is this part of a standard operating procedure employed by social engineers today? It can be called ‘BS baffles brains’ orrepparttar 145839 ‘Big Lie’.

“The object of crystal gazing is, as has been said,repparttar 145840 induction of a kind of hypnotic state giving rise to hallucinations of a visionary nature,repparttar 145841 reflection of light inrepparttar 145842 crystal forming ‘points de repère’ for such hallucinations. The value of elaborate ceremonies and impressive rituals thus lies in their potency to affectrepparttar 145843 mind andrepparttar 145844 imagination ofrepparttar 145845 seer.
