The Age of Transitions
Author and digital filmmaker Aaron Franz hosts this podcast about transhumanism, social manipulation, the occult, and much more.

This month's Bonus Podcast is a book notes episode on Physical Control of the Mind by professor Jose Delgado. Delgado was the man who famously implanted electrodes in the brains of animals and humans. His bullfight with a bull that had electrodes implanted was televised in 1963. This book outlines some of his findings from his experiments, and a bit of his personal philosophy in pursuing the research in the first place. Aaron can't help but read occult meaning into the whole of this. 

topics include: electronic stimulation of the brain (ESB), Yale, science, occult, left-hand path occultism, mind, brain implants, animal testing, human testing, brainwashing, mind control, privacy, technology, history of brain implants, psychology, stimoceivers, brain-machine interface, computers
