Or this. Today, many people are having a birthday. How can Pav's Ice Cream store in downtown Cuyahoga Falls get George Alexander, who is 40 today, to pay the store a visit on his birthday? Trying to control the future behavior of an individual is very exciting.

One easy to conduct experiment I do, on several forums and Facebook groups is to get a given individual to RESPOND to a post, and to predict with great accuracy exactly what that response will be? It gets easier when you know who is who and what they generally have to say.

You can create a knee jerk (Cialidini: click-whirr) reaction by using certain stimuli...and you can create that stimuli weeks in advance.

The tech today of knowing individual behavior vs. group behavior is a frontier we should talk more about. It is an amazing thing to witness when it is happening and the parties involved have NO CLUE they are actually being manipulated behind the scenes.

Now elevate.

Not the X% of report buyers at 39 bux, but how about the X men who spend millions of dollars, and make decisions for giant corporations? That is dang exciting, interesting and I hope to say, profitable beyond belief.
Hi Gordon,

You've got me excited! I'm definitely interested to know more...!

This is one area where you are an acknowledged expert!

P.S. the Trump PHOENIX rally, loaded with dog whistles, is an example of herd control, planned and executed and we'll see more of them. Trump is really, really good at the herd level, not so great at the personal one.
I agree with you that Trump has skills to create a movement of people who adore him... He's deeply tapped into some people's gripes and fears... (I believe such power can be used for good or evil... It's definitely a source of power...)

Also, say George A. gets a co-op postcard in the mail, with several free and special offers good on his birthday only...the small cost of the card, split between vendors add up to a pretty persuasive way to get Georgie Boy in the store.

Having a 1000 cards produced, about a weeks worth, with slug slots for dates and names, is a way to send mass produced media to specific persons.
I think I'm starting to get your drift...

You can control individual people REMOTELY...

Looking forward to more!

Best wishes,
