New Book – The God Helmet Experiments: The Science that Found God in the Human Brain

November 17, 2019 2 By William Hollis


Hello.
This brief video is to introduce my new book. “The God Helmet Experiments: the
Science that Found God in the Human brain.” It’s a new kind of science book.
Instead of trying to write a book that would summarize all of the God Helmet
results, what I’ve done is rewritten a number of the original research papers, on a (more or less) line-by-line basis to make them easy to read. The original
papers were authored by Dr. Michael Persinger, as well as many of his
colleagues, and they can be extremely difficult reading. What I’ve done here is
simplified them as much as I can, so that ordinary readers with a bit of science
education, (and perhaps some experience in reading science books) will be able to
understand it for themselves. There are three kinds of material in the book;
three major sections. The first is theories, ideas, concepts, and the paradigm that supports the god helmet and these also have some overviews of the of the
results of all of the work. The second part consists of a number of research
papers dedicated to specific experiments with the god helmet; things like
out-of-body experiences, sensing a presence, and even for papers
on treating one kind of clinical depression, using this class of
technology, called “complex magnetic signal stimulation, or
complex magnetic signal neural stimulation. The third part of the book
is given over to debate and argument. Dr. Persinger had a number of critics, most
of whom were very skeptical atheists – what have come to be called the “new
atheists” and these are people who believe that religion is almost
completely destructive force and should be abolished. To them, getting rid of
religion would be a high and noble achievement, but to Dr. Persinger and I it
would be an atrocity, and the reason is we believe that religion, spirituality,
religious urges, and the the interface between religious sentiment and
creativity, are inherent in the human species and to try and abolish religion
would be an act of utter cruelty and, well, I’ll use the same word twice – it
would be an atrocity. One of the criticisms they leveled against him – and
apparently they did this without reading the actual research papers – was that Dr.
Persinger didn’t use placebo controls. Well, that’s just plain wrong, and you’ll
see that if you read “The God Helmet Experiments: The science that found God
in the human brain”, Dr. Persinger did in fact use placebo
controls, and he also used them when experimenting with his magnetic signals
with laboratory rats and flatworms, and you can’t fool a white rat. You can’t
give a white rat a placebo, and there’s no point in giving a flatworm
a placebo either, because neither of them will demonstrate the placebo response
that we see in humans. Another one of the criticisms leveled at dr. Persinger was
that he didn’t use blind conditions. As you’ll see if you read “The God Helmet
Experiments: the Science that found God in the Human Brain (I’m sure I can orient
it properly), This also isn’t true. Another criticism that was leveled against Dr.
Persinger is that he didn’t use blind conditions. As you’ll see if you read
this book, this simply isn’t true, either. He used blind conditions for some, and
double-blind conditions for others. It’s also been alleged that Dr. Persinger got
his results because he was using particularly suggestible subjects, when in
point of fact, they were picked at random from a student population, like so many
university projects. There were actually a few studies done specifically
to eliminate the possibility that his that his results could be
accounted for through suggestibility. In fact, he did one study where he found
that his subjects were more hypnotizable, more suggestible, after their stimulation
with the God Helmet than than they had been before, and you can’t change
suggestibility through suggestion. Furthermore,
Dr. Persinger’s success in treating depression in the laboratory using the
God Helmet’s technology suggests that suggestibility played no role, because if
suggestion could influence the outcome of a treatment for depression, then we
wouldn’t need anything except placebo to treat it, but placebos have not emerged
as an effective treatment for clinical depression. You can’t cure psychiatric
disorders using suggestion or placebos. Not only that, but there were many
studies (not covered in this book) that worked with laboratory rats and even
flatworms, and of course you can’t influence the outcome of an experiment
with white rats using suggestion. Rats don’t receive – they don’t take –
suggestions. They don’t hear them. Neither do flatworms. Suggestibility is a
uniquely human attribute or trait, and flatworms and the laboratory rats don’t
have it. To learn about the God Helmet and the God Helmet experiments, read this book it’s the only book that’s been written on the subject. There are a
number of books that talk about the God Helmet, in a chapter here, or a chapter
there, but this is the first volume that’s dedicated only and specifically
to the God Helmet and the research carried out by Dr. Michael Persinger for
approximately 30 years. I hope you’ll get a copy from Amazon, I hope you’ll read it,
and I hope you’ll give an unbiased review of the book on Amazon. Those are
very helpful for authors Thank you very much.
