Chapter Fifteen: Core splits, Denial programming, the last Five
Steps of Discipline Virtual Reality Programming
Virtual reality programming (VR) is a form of programming that has
become more and more widely used in the past few decades. It
involves the person being placed in VR headsets and suit while a
cult created VR disk is used to run the program. It can be used to
create 3D and holographic images, and especially is useful in
scripted programming, and target practice sequences for assassin
training. Under hypnosis , the person will really believe they are
in the scene.
Virtually any scenario can be recreated. Images to be ''burned in''
will be shown on the VR disk, and reinforced repetitively during the
programming sequence. Some trainers feel it removes the element of
''human error'' in training, and use it quite extensively. VR
programming, like any other programming, means going inside and
finding out the distortions that were placed in the parts that went
through the programming, allowing them to see how they were
deceived, and dealing with the trauma associated with the
Denial programming begins with the first experiences the infant goes
through in life. The child has been horrendously wounded and
traumatized, yet the next morning, the adults around him are acting
normally, as if nothing had happened. They are modeling a lifestyle
of denial for the infant and young child. This is reinforced later
by the child being told:
''It was just a bad dream'' (oh, how the child wants to believe this
lie. It makes the pain less to think it didnít really happen)
''Itís just your imagination; it isnít really happening'' (which is
again embraced as an escape from the horror). Denial will also be
fed by the adults around the child telling them that they will never
be believed if they disclose. There will be set ups to teach the
child what they see and hear, and to teach the child to trust
outside adults to tell them their reality.
A typical set up will go like this:
The adult will hold an object such as an orange in their hand, and
ask the young child, about age two or three, ''what is this?''. The
child will quickly respond, ''oh, an orange!'' The child will be
shocked, and told, ''no, itís an apple.'' The child will be
confused, because what they are looking at is obviously an orange.
It is the color orange, smells like an orange, looks like an orange.
The question will be repeated. The child may answer again,'' an
orange,'' and will be shocked again. Finally, the child, unsure and
not wanting to be punished, will say, ''an apple,'' and be praised.
The purpose of this exercise is to teach the child to not trust
their own reality, and look to outside adults or leaders to tell
them what reality really is.
That is the basis of denial: the person learns to not trust their
own reality, because of punishment and fear when they have spoken
Alters will be created as the child grows, whose purpose is to deny
the cult abuse. If any leakage or breakthrough occurs, the denial
alterís job is to create a plausible explanation: it was a
nightmare, a book the person read, a movie they saw, etc. These
alters will read and quote literature that refutes SRA. THESE ALTERS
OFTEN BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE SAVING THE LIFE OF THE SURVIVOR. They
have been told that if the survivor remembers, and believes the
abuse, the survivor will be killed, or the denial alter will be
severely punished or shattered for not doing their job. These parts
have a vested interest in their job: they believe their very
existence and they bodyís survival, depend upon them.
Arguing with a denial alter will not work, since they are not
motivated by logic, but fear. A better approach is to ask them what
they fear if the person remembers. This will open up the deception
and lies that were ground in. They may be protecting the survivor
from suicidal alters behind them, who are programmed to kick in if
denial is broken through. Allowing them to vent their concerns, and
enlisting the aid of helpers or cognitives who do not have suicidal
or denial programming will help. Showing them reality in a gentle
way, allowing them to ''listen in'' on others who share will go a
Some denial is the natural consequence of self protection from the
horrors of abuse; not all denial is programming. But if denial is
constantly blocking therapy, and causing it to come to a complete
standstill; if the person becomes highly suicidal every time denial
is set aside briefly, then the possibility needs to be considered.
Safety, inner cooperation, and patience will go a long way in
decreasing denial. As denial backs down, you can expect an immense
amount of grieving as the truth is realized. Denial protected the
survivor from the horrendous pain of the truth, and should be let go
of extremely slowly and cautiously, with plenty of support during
the grieving stage.
Core splits are intentional traumatic splits created from the core
The core may be literally ''splintered'' by overwhelming
psychological and physical/spiritual trauma. The trauma needed to
create a core split must be very early and psychologically
devastating. Fetal splits may occur, but they are rarely a core
split; instead, the core creates an alter, but remains.
Core splits are done between the ages of 18 months and three years.
Usually at least one parent or main caretaker is involved in the
trauma, because this creates the psychological devastation necessary
to split the core. Physical trauma alone rarely causes core splits.
The torture is intense and prolonged, until the child collapses. It
may be shocking, stretching, being hung in a high place, or a
combination of several techniques. Being placed in ''shock boxes'',
or near drowning are also used.
The techniques that create core splits are also dangerous, since
they can also cause autism if the child cannot endure the
programming. When I was in the cult, I fought to stop core splitting
because occasionally children were lost or the foundational
personality was too weakened.
The core may split into two, three, or up to eight splits
internally. Each split will be a piece of the ''core child''. The
original core will not resurface after splitting. These splits are
used by cult trainers to be used as templates to create systems
within the child. A core split, or a split from one, will be a
strong alter, and can be re-split many times in the programming
process, to create a multifaceted and diverse system within.
Core splits represent intense foundational trauma. They will be the
basis for later systems, which may be completely dissociated from
the split as time goes on. Work on core splits should go very
slowly, and only late in the therapy process when there is immense
intrasystem cooperation. The survivor will need every internal
resource to deal with these traumas, and plenty of outside
It may mean hospitalization unless the survivor can keep the trauma
from emerging too quickly, and the therapist and survivor can go
Other, less dissociated systems and fragments should be integrated.
Acknowledging the abuse cognitively will be the first step in
dealing with core trauma. Letting more dissociated parts grieve
about ''hearing about'' what happened may come next. Allowing
feelings near the core to come close, a little at a time, with
helpers and internal nurturers offering support will help.
These feelings should be titrated, and looked at a little at a time.
Splits may be different ages, and may need to express themselves in
There may be ''dream programming'', a ''fantasy world'', or other
flight from reality surrounding the core splits, that protects them
from contact with the outside world, which is perceived as brutal
and cold. Parts may be completely disconnected from outside reality
in an effort to buffer pain.
Slow, patient nurturing and reality orientation will help these
tremendously traumatized parts begin to join outer reality. Some
parts will always have been aware of what happened, but wonít care
to join the outside world.
Patience, allowing them to vent, will help most.
Steps of Discipline:
Step seven: Not caring
This step will take the child further into a perpetrator role. The
child will be forced to hurt others and prove their ability to not
care during the process.
Step eight: Time travel
The child will be taught spiritual principles of ''traveling'' both
internally and externally, with set ups, role playing, and guided
exercises reinforced with trauma. The goal will be to reach
''enlightenment'', an ecstatic state of dissociation reached after
Steps nine, ten, eleven:
These will involve programming that will vary according to the
childís future role in the cult. Sexual trauma, learning to
dissociate and increase cognition, decrease feeling will be
emphasized in these steps.
Step twelve: ceremony of becoming at age twelve to thirteen, the
child will be formally inducted into the cult and their adult role
in a ceremony of ''coming of age''. They will prove this ability by
performing the role/job they have been training for, to the
satisfaction of the trainer and leaders; by undergoing a special
induction ceremony. The ritual and ceremony will be held with other
children of the same age, who are dressed in white and given a prize
as acknowledgement that they have completed the basics of their
They will continue to be abused, even as adults, but the major
traumatization and creation of system templates will have occurred
by this age. Future training will refine what was already placed in
the child by this age, or build upon the foundation.
Grieving the abuse, acknowledging the feelings associated with
undergoing the trauma will be important. It will be necessary to
deal with perpetrator guilt, since by this time the child will be a
perpetrator, and will have identified with the adult role models
around them. This can be difficult to do, since perpetration will
horrify the survivor when they remember this. Supporting the
survivor, remaining non judgmental, and encouraging acceptance of
these parts is important. Pointing out that at the time, they saw no
other options available will help. Realizing that perpetrator alters
saved the childís life, and that they had no other way to act,
especially originally, the first time, will need to be pointed out.
The survivor may feel hostile towards, or reviled by perpetrator
alters, but they are the expression of the abuse and limited choices
they were allowed.
Grieving being a perpetrator will take time and
caring support by others.
