When we hold our breath we sense our blood becoming acidic as carbon dioxide dissolves in it forming carbonic acid. Magnetic repulsion It is not just paperclips that are magnetic.

Ten Popular Mind Control Techniques Used Today The more one researches mind control, the more one will come to the conclusion that there is a coordinated script that has been in place for a very long time with the goal to turn the human race into non-thinking automatons. For as long as man has pursued power over the masses, mind control has been orchestrated by those who study human behavior in order to bend large populations to the will of a small “elite” group.
