Kept with the hypnotic use of "original, general, conditional instructions" (OGCs)
Far in the past, history was only carried forward by verbally passing it on throughout the generations. The phenomena of one mind carrying the identities, actions and events past, of an entire community of hundreds of people is accomplished by the use of the subconscious mind which is only accessed by powerfully deep cataleptic hypnotic trances. Indigenous communities worldwide have understood these trances very well for many thousands of years.
Human mental abilities are divided into two parts, conscious and unconscious. Fourteen percent is conscious and 86 percent is unconscious. It is recognized by modern psychologists that the subconscious mind, the larger part, dictates to the conscious the fundamental intents of the individual. The spiritual community of humanity from antiquity have recognized that the purpose or intent of a human being is to live and find happiness through the experience of love. Ancient peoples know that the truth is for the protection of love and life and that it enables a people to evolve or adapt as time passes. Most indigenous peoples have had the same devotions within their spiritual communities for a very long time.
To be certain that the bearer of an oral history could recall events of the past and record events in the present with consistent chronological accuracy, it was determined by ancient Shaman that the light of a celestial body, at the time of it's rising or setting, could be recognized as a distinct point in time by the internal, biological clock. Jet lag is an example of how our biological clock can be fouled by rapidly altering our position on Earth within its rotation under the sun. The biological clock or circadian rythym is in a primordial part of the subconscious mind, the part which processes light.
Light is the original bringer of life in the universe and human beings recognize it as an essential part of existence. This important aspect of life is primary and the part of the mind that processes light determines our basic mental state. The induction of these very deep trances is accomplished by the Shaman using the human eye as a reflector of light into the eye of the trance subject. From antiquity it has been understood that an instinctual transformation of the mental state can be achieved when light enters the eye at certain frequencies. The deep trance state is ultimately a self imposed alteration of the electrical operating frequency of the mind.
Original, general, conditional hypnotic instructions (OGCs) applied to children by Native Medicine people can structure a persons life in nearly every way from instructions carried in deep memory. General instructions can control the psychology of the individual throughout their development in life. In the case of oral histories the OGCs include instructions to become conscious of all that the old bearer told the young bearer when the young bearer learns of the death of the old bearer. The conditions described in the original instructions at age 6. The shock to the subconscious causes the new bearer of that history to mentally act on the original instructions to memory control and remove the barriers created to protect the bearer from the strangeness of having the histories of the community available to their conscious mind on a sporadic basis.
The biological clock can be set and appointments can be made, then easily kept to within minutes of their specified times by individuals who have watched a sunrise of a known year. Subconsciously people with OGCs tend to find each other and manifest conditions that trigger their original instructions.
The sunrise on the morning of December 22nd has been used by peoples globally to create chronological accuracy in oral histories for many centuries. The primordial mind knows that the first light following the longest night of the year is the beginning of a new sun cycle and gives it a very special significance. The moon is used to create greater resolution of the biological clock within the cycles of the sun. This is why Native people spoke in reference to time by saying "many suns or many moons ago". Events are referred to in time by suns, moons and days.
Normally the conscious mind is at the visible front of our mental state, it has for most purposes, access to the perceptions of sight or sound. In a cataleptic trance, the subconscious mind comes to the front of the mental state, it then uses the perceptions independently of the conscious mind. In a cataleptic state the Shaman speaks directly to the subconscious mind in an environment of trust, the subject is dependent on the will of the one who induces the trance. Somnambulistic transitions are encouraged to facilitate programming the subconscious mind.
It is unknown to modern science that the subconscious mind is much more capable of interpreting eye and facial information than the conscious mind. Perhaps twenty or thirty times more information is processed by the subconscious mind regarding the emotions of the one speaking. For this reason fear, anger and grief is retained when oral histories are read or transferred to new bearers. The Native Medicine people consider written history very useful tool for "forgetting" or discontinuing oral history when disturbing emotions are carried unnecessarily for generations. Once committed to the written word, the truth is preserved but it no longer creates pain as it is carried into the future.
When the history is transferred, traces of disturbance or discomfort are unavoidable as elements of the difficult past are recalled and perceived by the conscious mind. Otherwise the distubing truths of the past may only be known when relative events in the present, trigger recall. Hence the appreciation for the written word by Native medicine people and the aspect of "forgetting" can be understood as freedom from unnecessarily passing pain to future generations.
The truth can contain many painful things but it still cannot be forgotten if it is to serve its purpose. Before the written word there was a method created to protect the bearer of an oral history from disturbing aspects of the past that they might carry. The subconscious mind accommodated vital needs by creating an ability to make a place which was not accessible to the conscious mind. This is called deep memory it is different from the thing of the same name which modern psychology refers to.
Traditionally men carried the general history of a people which might contain information concerning battles, conflicts, massacres or other disturbing facts. Women carried the genealogical history of families and would oversee the union of tribal members to the greater genetic good of all. The elders were honored for their preservation of history by providing a quick and easy access to knowledge for the people throughout their lives.
The reference system of an oral history is based in syllables or smaller word sounds called morphemes. Instant recollection of seemingly obscure and non related information is cued by the relationship of word sounds comprising the names of individuals, events or places and other things. Hence the importance of names to ancient people.
During childhood the barrier between the conscious and the subconscious mind is poorly formed. At this time a deep trance state can be used to create a partition in the mind which forms a barrier in memory and creates deep memory, when it is created in a child it becomes absolutely inaccessible to the conscious mind later in life. An oral history which contains disturbing aspects can then be carried with little or no impact to the adult bearer. The most detailed and durable oral histories are carried for life because of an agreement made in the subconscious mind dedicated to the protection of love and life. A childs understanding of love as the purpose of life is as valid as anyones and the mental use of that understanding to protect the meaning of it is natural.
