Magnetic Mindcontrol reduces Religious Belief and Racism

godAn der Uni York haben sie Vorurteile gegenüber Einwanderern und den Glauben an unsichtbare Superfuzzis mit ein bisschen Magnetkraft reduziert, leider nur temporär. Bereits vor ein paar Jahren hat man per sogenannter „Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation“ die Bereitschaft zu lügen manipuiert und jetzt werden eben aus radikalen Fantasy-Fundamentalisten und Rassisten ganz normale Mitmenschen. Im Paper spricht man von „Neuromodulation“ von Verhalten. Clockwork Orange, here we come. Gruselig. Toll. Gruselig.

Scientists from the University of York have found a way of performing mind control. By directing magnetic force towards the posterior medial frontal cortex of the brain, they were able to reduce belief in God and decrease intolerance towards immigrants. This part of the brain is located near the surface, roughly a few inches up from the forehead, and is associated with detecting and solving problems.

In the study, half the participants were given a low-level amount of energy that would have not affected their brains, and the other half received enough magnetic energy to lower activity in that area of the brain. The scientists from the University of York and a team from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) found that people whose targeted brain region was temporarily shut down reported 32.8 per cent less belief in God, angels, or heaven. They were also 28.5 per cent more positive in their feelings towards an immigrant who criticised their country.
