Yes, it's sick. I just wanted to comment on this part:
"They shut down the persons critical thinking by making them question their own intution by labeling all doubts and "alarm bells" as "programs" that society has instilled in all of us."
They shut down critical thinking by drowning it out. I think it's a matter of sheer volume. It's like trying to fight a fire hose blasting a non-stop stream of b.s. Eventually, you just give up, and the sleep deprivation helps them, too.
As to intuition, I had a conversation about intuition with the person I would "assist" at the center. She maintained that we could not rely on intuition, (which is quite apart from critical thinking, and may even more or less bypass it). She was trying to make a point about that, and asked me, "Yes, but how often has your intuition been wrong?" I thought about it for a minute, and told her, "Almost never." That was NOT what she wanted to hear.
If you read the book, "The Gift of Fear," by Gavin DeBecker, it helps to explain what intuition really is, at least much of the time, and it's really not so mysterious. It's not necessarily a "message from beyond."
He explains that we have thousands of pieces of information entering our awareness at any given moment, but that we can only focus on a few. The rest is registering somewhere in our awareness, and being processed effortlessly, without our even thinking about it. As a result, we actually know a lot more than we think we do. When we get a sudden prompt, or a warning, seemingly out of nowhere, that is that part of our conscience trying to keep us safe. It is often ignored, and LGATS seem to deliberately encourage us to ignore it! I wish I would have listened to mine :-\
