New cure for addiction?
Although the information contained in this post begs for satirical treatment, it is actually true, based on several reports from readers.
Apparently some time last year IBLP worked to obtain the rights to an exciting new product designed to cure all addictions. I am told this device was supposedly invented nearly 50 years ago, but had never been used because of governmental suppression.
This device is a little black box with two electrodes that connect behind a person's ears. Certain frequencies that were "developed by rock musicians" are sent along to the electrodes and stimulate the brain to produce endorphins. The result is a natural "high" without the harmful side effects of illegal narcotics.
In a summer 2004 conversation with several Headquarters staffers, relayed to me by one of the participants, Mr. Gothard referred to this remarkable invention as the "Healthy High." Apparently Mr. Gothard hoped to develop a Walkman-type machine that not only produced a "Healthy High," but played character-building music and the Commands of Christ series. "This machine will destroy the Rock music industry in our country!" he is reported to have said. Speculation ran high that the wholesome buzz could also be used to relieve chronic pain.
X-ATI Guy is both fascinated and disturbed. Other details were shared that we have not been able to confirm, but we will continue to investigate. If anyone can share additional information about this amazing device, please email me.
