Lesson 17: The paper voodoo doll.
Todays lesson will be a very shocking one. The principle described in this article has already been in use for quite a while. Vision however will always be limited by perception. You're eyes cannot see beyond the borders of you're understanding.
You've probably all heard of the story of voodoo dolls once in you're life. Voodoo is an ancient magical ritual which has the ability to connect someones feeling to that of a doll. Ones the person and the doll share the same feelings, the doll can be used to controll the will of the person connected to it, or to inflict pain on a victim by applying force to the doll. Most people consider voodoo to be a form of superstition, but what if I told you we are all being supressed by a certain kind of voodoo? A paper voodoo doll, in the shape of a file with you're name on it. Every time someone damages that file or uses it against you you will suffer the consequences. Before you get scared, know that there are certain ways to defend against these rituals. Let me start with explaining what we are dealing with. I'll show you how to create a paper voodoo doll and you can try this ritual with you're friends to see their response. According to the myths a vodoo doll can only be created by obtaining a personal asset from someone. In horror stories, this is usually a piece of a persons body. The paper voodoo doll works a bit differently though. To create a paper voodoo doll you'll need to obtain someones personal information. Like a major secret from the person's past or something they tride to hide from their enviroment. So the first step is to give a piece of paper to a friend and ask him to write down his biggest secret, the thing they don't want anyone to find out. This is probably where 99% of you're friends already show fear by refusing to cooperate, but let's just pretend they do. Now ask you're friend to give you the piece of paper with their secret on it, again 99% will probably refuse, but what if they don't? Try to threaten the person now with making this secret public, the'll probably do anything to prevent it. And yet, we are only talking about a single secret now, how many secrets does a person have? If all you're secrets would fall into the hands of the wrong person they can even choose the way they want you to suffer. They can make you feel shame, fear, hate, grief, almost every feeling has a hidden secret which is connected to it.
