If you didn’t catch the new series “Deception” last night, you missed a treat. The sneak peek episode aired last night (May 31st) and it was quite funny to watch, and a little scary too.
Keith Barry, from Ireland, calls himself a Mentalist, and his new series debuted on the Discovery Channel last night, here in the U.S. A regular episode airs tonight at 9:00 pm central time, which will be its regular week day. Last nights episode was about Black Ops. Tonight’s episode is about reading people’s minds and implanting thoughts. I can’t wait to see this! I am so ready!
The first video below gives you an idea about what the show is all about. It was featured on the show last night, which was basically about Black Ops experiments by the CIA, Russians, and Hitler regarding mind control. Barry took people off the street, no actors, and performed hypnosis on them and got them to do things they didn’t even remember doing. It was hilarious. He constantly reminds us that “no actors” were being used. He even hypnotized a mass audience in a theater! And of course no one even remembers being hypnotized. But these people are then shown the video that proves he hypnotized them and they performed stupid things while under his influence. Bullcrap!
He goes on to recount the now known secrets of Black Op projects from around the world who experimented with hypnosis, mind control, and sleeper agents.
It is no secret that these groups went to great lengths in their experiments to control people’s minds, implant thoughts, invade dreams, and read minds. The mystery of a real life Manchurian Candidate is still pursued today, with books and movies. I couldn’t help but think of the movie “Inception” that came out last year. It was one of those wild and crazy movies about implanting thoughts into someone’s mind. It was an excellent movie, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
Well, I haven’t ever heard of Keith Barry before, but now I know, after watching the show, that he is, in my opinion, nothing more than a “mentalist” (magician) that uses tricks of the hands and tricks of the mouth.
He asks during the show – “is it possible to control someone’s mind and then use that person to carry out operations against another country, group, or whatever, and them not realizing it?” That question has been asked many times. Hence the reason the CIA, Hitler, and Russians did experiments. Those experiments are still going on today. How far have they gone with mind control? I hear they used LSD in these experiments. Even some still believe that there is evidence that Sirhan Sirhan who assassinated Robert F. Kennedy was a Manchurian Candidate, who carried out his assassination under hypnosis. And I’ve even heard theories that maybe Jack Ruby was under the influence of mind control when he assassinated Lee Harvey Oswald. You can hear three very distinct car beeps just before Ruby pulls out his gun in the video. Could be, right? And a few wonder if those beeps weren’t the “trigger” sound that made him act. Hmmmmm.
Barry also tests his “abilities” during the show and hypnotizes a man and turns him into a sleeper agent, just like Sirhan Sirhan. Oh please! I didn’t believe this show – not one minute of it! I might be able to believe Sirhan Sirhan was a sleeper agent – for they could have brainwashed him and controlled him for months even years. But Barry made this guy a sleeper agent in just a few hours, supposedly. It would take a great deal more effort than a few hours to get someone to poison someone and steal from him in front of a room full of people. I mean, come on. Think people. This isn’t real!
Barry supposedly could walk up to someone and in a few seconds (yes seconds) have control over someone and have them hypnotized – with total control of that person’s subconscious mind. That’s a load of crap. No one could do that. Especially not in 3 minutes flat! No way!
If what this show and Keith Barry’s abilities were really true, someone somewhere would have used this to their benefit a LONG TIME AGO! It would be happening all the time. Democrats would be hypnotizing masses of people. Republicans would be doing the same thing. Sports agents would be making their athletes the greatest ever. Someone would make a sleeper agent and have them kill somebody, like a President or Queen, or Dictator. Countries would be sending sleeper agents to their enemies to do harm or assassinations. We would see someone unleash diseases or bacteria and have no idea that it was them who did it, for they would be programmed to not remember once they did the act. Have we seen any of this? No! If it was real, we would see this over and over again. Think about it. If you could control someone’s mind and actions – what would you do? How would use it for your gain and advantage. What if you were running for office? What if you were a cop? What if you were a criminal? Think!!!!
What gets me is that people are truly going to believe that this show is real. How do we know that no actors are used? How do we know exactly what really happened, when the show is edited? How do we know these people aren’t just people off the street that have been paid? We don’t and that’s the problem. And remember – it is a TV SHOW! It wants ratings. Only ratings.
Remember the show “John Edward” who claimed to be a psychic medium and supposedly talked to dead people or spirits and had his own show for a while? This guy Keith Barry is the same thing, just a different person. All he has done is master body language, facial expressions, magic tricks, and cheap hypnosis tricks to fool people. Nothing more.
This guy even claims that he can put a video on the internet and anyone who watches it can be hypnotized. I don’t think so. Try me – I’m game. I bet I win.
He can call it Brain Magic, Mentalism, Synthetic telepathy, Magic, Psychic, or whatever – it is still nothing but fooling people. It is not real. But it is so cool to watch.
Now I know, most people, around 80-85%, are very easy to hypnotize. And as he states in his show, that extroverts are more likely to be vulnerable to hypnosis. And I know that some believe that hypnosis has been used as a tool to uncover details from someone, to remember something, and used for hypnotherapy. But this is all hogwash. You already have whatever it is that you need to remember, it is just someone giving you a SUGGESTION that your mind thinks is a new idea – and bam – you now can remember that detail or whatever. Don’t be fooled!
