Truman Show Delusion
Truman Show Delusion.
I know some people in the TI community have mentioned that they are going to be keeping an eye on this new syndrome.
So I just had a couple of quick suggestions about questions that you might want to ask.
Since some suspect that this might be in part designed to have the public think that anyone complaining about 24/7 surveillance is delusional or crazy, here are some things you might want to look at when checking into this further.
Start with the doctors in question who are researching this. The Doctors Gold Ian and Joel.First you always want to check out the credibility of these individuals. Make sure that there are no military ties. This has played a role in the past, so this is something that you would want to look into. Too many people remember Ewen Cameron and his experiments. This is not in anyway to compare the doctors Gold to him. The point however is, Dr Cameron was a doctor with good credibility that conducted illicit Mind Control experiments.
[quote]Donald Ewen Cameron (1901-1967) was a Scottish-American psychiatrist. Born in Bridge of Allan, he graduated from the University of Glasgow in 1924.
Cameron lived and worked in Albany, New York, and was involved in experiments in Canada for Project MKULTRA, a United States based CIA-directed mind control program which eventually lead to the publication of the KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation manual.
Cameron was the author of the psychic driving concept which the CIA found particularly interesting. In it he described his theory on correcting madness, which consisted of erasing existing memories and rebuilding the psyche completely. After being recruited by the CIA, he commuted to Montreal every week to work at the Allan Memorial Institute of the McGill University, and was paid $69,000 from 1957 to 1964 to carry out MKULTRA experiments there. The CIA appears to have given him the potentially deadly experiments to carry out, as they would be tried on non-US citizens. However, documents released in 1977 revealed that thousands of unwitting, as well as voluntary subjects were tested on during that time period. These subjects included United States citizens
Assuming that our esteemed doctors are what they say they are and what they appear to be, you would want to next look at the patients. Joel Gold has said that in 2002 in New York, he saw 5 patients, white males that were complaining about this delusion. Three specifically mentioned the Truman show. They felt their families were reading from a script and that their actions were being watched 24/7 and that the whole world was part of this. It encompassed their lives.
Joel Gold, who is on the psychiatric faculty of New York’s Bellevue Hospital and serves as a clinical assistant professional of psychiatry at New York University's School of Medicine, first began to see the symptoms dubbed Truman Show delusion in 2002 with patients at Bellevue Hospital. He initially treated five white male patients with middle-class upbringing and education, all who likened themselves to actors on reality TV shows. Three specifically referenced the movie The Truman Show, giving rise to the disorder’s name. [/quote]
We have thousands upon thousands of people complaining about Gang Stalking, Electronic Harassment and Mind Control, but 5 White male patients of upper middle class backgrounds say they are part of a reality show, and that's enough to get a study done on the Truman Show Delusion?
So with what we know about Cointelpro, we went to look into the credibility of the patients. Make sure that they have no military ties. Look at their past histories make sure that there is no reason to believe there was any financial motivation, or that they were not couched or exposed to influences that lead them to this belief.
This is not to insult or make aspersion's about anyone. Doctor Gold could really just have come across 5 patients out of the hundreds that he saw, and decided this would be a good study. The patients might really have these delusions and might really feel this way, but with what we have seen of Cointelpro, some of us were waiting and watching for a similar new illness or something similar to come out.
We have seen people pretend to be targets, who's only goal is to make other targets look delusional. We have seen people pretend to be targets who's only goal was to further harass real targets, etc. To not ask the questions would be unwise and well.
Since this summer for some reason, the doctors now in 2008, cause that was 2002, shared their findings this summer, and other doctors have said they have seen similar cases about 40-50 more. What is not clear is are their patients complaining about Truman Show as well, or just about being watched, about their families reading from scripts? The related case information that I could find was pretty sparse, if anyone is looking into this, maybe they can update this information.
Beyond that, I am going to be continuing on with looking into Gang Stalking, but these are some questions that I thought might be nice to ask for those looking into the Truman Show Delusion.
