a question for the landmark grads that read this group
Date: January 22, 2003 07:18AM
thank u for posting back to me.
lets back into the forum for a moment.
some of u say that people were screaming and crying and some say
that people thought it was funny.
its actually got two parts, the
part where the participant is terrified and then the part where
the participant does the terrifying.
lets go over the first part. many
people i have spoken to deny that
they ever wailed and screamed and
cried. this is to be accepted. it
does seem a little strange to admit
to people that landmark had u going
out of your minds for a little while.
the first part i completely understand. u are made to feel terrified, not just a little scared
but real scared. real scared is terriefied. and even though u wont
admit it most if not all of u did scream and cry. u are in denial. this
is acceptable. when i took the forum
in 1996 i did not cry but i did open
my eyes and look around me a little.
i know i wasnt supposed to do this and
u might say that because i did not
follow their lead that i didnt get it.
well, i would disagree, i did get it.
i got an understanding of what this
and heres a question. if it wasnt hypnosis, how was it possible for everybody , practically everybody to have become so involed with it. i am
supposing that when i started this
thread that u didnt start crying and
screaming. the reason people cried and
wailed and screamed was because they
were hypnotised. if people were not
hypnotised then explain the success
the forum leader had. give me an explaation as to how most if not all the people in the forum at that moment
were able to automatically become very
that takes care of the first part.
now the second.
what is it about humans that terrifying
other humans seems funny.
some of u say that your leader asked
u if u got the funny part. well , sorry, the funny part came after the
terrifying part. of couse the landmark
leader will tell u that this was just
an exercise to get u in touch with your fear. there is another purpose.
if u attend a large group awareness
training and u are not getting enough
of it to suit them this is a way for
them to know. maybe some in the crowd
didnt scream or cry, in that case the
y stuck out from the crowd.
would u agree.
also, just the suggestion that u are
terrified made u that way. landmark
induced terror into many people at
the mere suggestion of terror. think of that.
now what would have happened if they
had left the people in this state.
it is possible that people would have
eventually died of fright. this is
a possibiliy and probably a fact.
if someone could induce u to terror and left u there, u might be dead now.
but of course they could not do that.
they had to bring u out of the state
of being terror and into the state
of being terrible.
just a study of their simple language
gives u a hint. some say that they thought it was funny. no. u did not
think it was funny when u were terrified, u thought i was funny when
U did the terrifying. get it. after
being terrified instead of saying that
u are being wonderful for whatever reasons, they told u that u were terrifying others and u thought it was
isnt that interesing. right after them
making u terrified and so many people
were actually quite scared u thought that doing the same to others was funny. do u get it now ?
of course landmark would never admit this. they would say that it is just
my interpretation and i am only human
and cant possibly get it right.
and then on the other hand landmark
preches they dont have any .
some say the empowerment process made
them feel uncomfortable. it should have. they made your state of being
terrified and then u liked to terrify
others. do u think there is a message
here ? there sure is. do u know what
