Beware transplant thoughts!
The greater the value we attach settled in the idea of someone else's brain, the more confident and faster it survives and develops. Unbeknownst to ourselves we begin to think about things, but yesterday we were totally unconcerned. You did not catch yourself thinking that you can not sleep peacefully because of the miracle pans infomercial? What's in the pharmacy looking eyes advertised on TV another panacea, ignoring long-established and proven tools? And the fate of her neighbor to the 8th floor, in an unhappy marriage to an alcoholic, touched you so much that you're in a hurry to give the unfortunate shyly vyklyanchennuyu you borrow a certain amount?
The diagnosis is clear: technical control of manipulators managed to lay your head intrusive grain, rather, imposed and ideas. The more you her "think", "plump up" their energy, the more this is initially alien, perhaps even hostile to the idea of you alters the features of its new "master." The latter, in turn, is doing what he should expect.
A few years ago my girlfriend — girl with model looks and a university degree — has managed to marry. It has managed to: a spouse, and did not bother to finish college, the arguments poor girl to tears and humiliation chicanery. And clumsy de, and mismanagement, and with mental disabilities, alas, did not happen …
Despite the sickly complexion and general inferiority complex, a representative of the "strong" half of humanity joker-nature has given talent manipulator: year and a half of clear head-hunted beauty remained pale shade with the prospect of divorce, and many months of communication with the psychoanalyst …
