TRANCE: Formation of America by Cathy O’Brien (with Mark Phillips)

TRANCE: Formation of America, first published in 1995, is a book about trauma-based mind control (related to projects MKUltra and Monarch) and satanic/occult ritual abuse in the US written by survivor Cathy O’Brien. She was rescued by Mark Phillips and the text includes his account.

TRANCE: Formation of America by Cathy O’Brien (with Mark Phillips)

As an autobiographical account, and therefore personal by nature, some aspects are practically impossible to verify and are limited to O’Brien’s perspective. Nonetheless, some of it can be generally corroborated by other sources and what is written is convincing and revealing. Readers are warned that O’Brien’s descriptions are at times explicit and the subject matter may be disturbing to some.

Born to a multi-generational incest-abused mother and a pedophile father, Cathy O’Brien was in effect sold to the project as a child in the 1960s. She was prostituted to pedophiles (including household names) and subjected to torture in order for her mind to dissociate. Her mind was thus compartmentalized, conditioned to accept programming and re-programming. She eventually became a “Presidential Model”. In her case, she was not merely a sex slave but also a black ops operative who delivered messages or acted as a courier for her controllers.

Below are a few points. This is not a summary, merely a sample. No names are mentioned here but O’Brien does name individuals in the text.

  • Families involved in (satanic/occult) ritual abuse have been involved for multiple generations.

  • Trauma-based mind control was already well understood and carried out in a structured manner with precision in the 1960s. It was not new nor merely experimental.

  • Specific television shows and cartoons (including Disney productions) are used for programming. Methods involving chemicals and electrical shock are also employed.

  • Conditioning and programming were not carried out merely by the military but also involved NASA.

  • Conditioning by the handler involved sleep, food and water deprivation, amongst other forms of torture.

  • Torture and pain cause the mind to dissociate. The mind is compartmentalized and subjected to programming. Different programs can be inserted into different compartments to be activated by the controllers at a time of their choosing. After performing the programmed task(s), the person can be reprogrammed. The memory of the aforementioned is still there in that particular compartment. Therefore, it is as if they have forgotten as long as their minds are continually maintained in that compartmentalized state, hence (what appears to be) Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) or Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). And in that state, their ability to think independently and their free will are greatly inhibited, they are in effect robots. They also have no sense of time. The mind can reintegrate given favorable conditions.

  • Hunting games involving children held on military grounds are not isolated instances.

  • The network for obtaining, conditioning and trafficking children also involve, directly or indirectly, the corrupted elements of law enforcement, Roman Catholic Church and Jesuits, Mormons, protestant churches, freemasons, entertainment industry, and the highest level of civil government, amongst others.

  • In O’Brien’s case, she was used for commercial and “non-commercial” pornography and prostitution. Where key figures were involved, it was filmed for blackmail purposes.

  • O’Brien was not only threatened and tortured herself but also her young daughter who was born in 1980, fathered by one of O’Brien’s handlers. This was also a means of control of O’Brien.

  • The country music scene was used to move drugs.

  • Some medical professionals are paid (by the CIA) to deal with mind-controlled slaves in such a way to cover for their controllers and to prevent their recovery.

  • O’Brien participated in covert operations in Central America.

  • She attended Bohemian Grove and overheard conversations regarding the New World Order: “I learned that perpetrators believed that controlling the masses through propaganda mind manipulation did not guarantee there would be a world left to dominate due to environmental and overpopulation problems. The solution being debated was not pollution/population control, but mass genocide of ‘selected undesirables.’”

  • Ultimately, those involved in mind-control are also involved in the drug trade, formulating government policies—such as, for example, education policies which reduce the younger generation’s ability to think critically—and the New World Order.

  • A mind-controlled slave who lived long enough to turn 30 years of age was typically killed. O’Brien and her daughter were rescued around that time—that is, around late 1987 to early 1988—by Mark Phillips.
