This does create an ironic conundrum: our reality is based on fictional depictions. As a result, the "reality" we perceive is not real, so our assumptions about mind control techniques end up being false and skewed.
The unfortunate outcome of this is that we dismiss the benefits of limited and targeted holistic mind control techniques and assume they are either outright dangerous or purely fictional. Such assessments are quite limiting and can prove problematic on many levels. The truth is that certain alterations of the mind can prove quite valuable as long as they fit certain criteria. Such criteria are:
- The mind control techniques must never subvert free will or undermine the basic ethical behavior of the individual undergoing the process.
- The purpose of the techniques is to serve a greater good and improve the health and well-being of the individual undergoing them.
- A serious and pressing need should be present in order to justify altering the mind in an extreme manner.
One way to be sure that only acceptable and ethical procedures are utilized would be to work with a talented professional who adheres to acceptable standards of behavior. In short, a qualified and experienced hypnotherapist would be a much better individual to work with than someone with a dubious background and credentials that cannot be verified.
And it also should go without saying that you will need to clearly and definitively think things through quite carefully before you commit to any mind control techniques. A great change may occur in the aftermath so you need to be sure that the process is something you do want to undergo.
