Eldon Taylor, Ph.D. was a practicing criminalist for over ten years while completing his education. He supervised and conducted investigations, recovery, and detection of deception testing. He specialized in physical security, lie detection, forensic hypnosis, and intelligence and counterintelligence measures. His earliest work with subliminal information processing was conducted from this setting, including a double-blind study conducted at the Utah State Prison in 1986-87 and published in his book Subliminal Communication.
Eldon Taylor has made a lifelong study of the human mind and has earned doctoral distinctions in psychology and hypnotherapy. He is a certified psychotherapist and Fellow of the American Psychotherapy Association (APA) and a certified hypnotherapist with the American Guild of Hypnotherapists. At present, he is the President and Director of Progressive Awareness Research, Inc.
Eldon Taylor has made numerous appearances on television and radio and his work has been cited in the national press on many occasions. He is considered by many to be one of the foremost authorities on subliminal information processing.
Eldon Taylor has participated in independent studies regarding his work with a number of researchers at leading institutions such as Stanford University, Weber State University, Colorado State University, Munich University, Bremen University, and the Institute of Mexican Social Services (Medicine)to name a few.
Eldon Taylor's experimental educational properties (e.g. Cancer Remission, AIDS, etc.) have been prescribed for patients across America and Mexico. The data from a longitudinal study regarding these properties has demonstrated a solid mind-body connection (psychoneuroimmunology) and has led to the development of new innovative non-intrusive health care adjuncts. Some of these new evolving technologies have been rigorously studied in double-blind designs, (e.g. depression and attention deficit hyperactive disorder) and found to have statistically significant efficacy.
Eldon Taylor's books and other works are available in public libraries and are currently offered in seven languages and in fourteen countries. He has led many workshops and made presentations in the United States, Mexico, China, Germany and the United Kingdom.
Eldon Taylor's work has been featured and written about in major popular publications of a diverse nature, such as Omni, Newsweek, Body Mind Spirit, and The Spinal Network.
Gotcha: The Subordination of Free Will
For more than a century, a silent battle has been raging for the territory of your mind. The weapons are so covert that the masses have remained unaware of their use. So effective are these tactics that even when the victims are told what is happening, and they make some show of being outraged, they nevertheless allow it to continue. Like a virulent virus, the effects are spreading, exerting a stronger control over a greater number of people on a daily basis—and we can only wish this was all just fiction!
In Gotcha! Eldon Taylor explores the 24/7 bombardment of information designed to win the hearts and minds of the public. He demonstrates how new sound-bytes are championed into personal awareness, becoming memes of the culture. All of this results in framing and reframing classical positions thereby causing adjustments to personal values and history itself. Your very decision process is being managed and manipulated, and the quest for discovering your real self becomes exponentially more difficult, if not impossible as a result.
Gotcha! exposes the arrival of the Orwellian age in full-blown technicolor. In laying bare the current uses of the many sophisticated techniques, Eldon reveals what it is we need to do in order to avoid allowing others to puppet our thoughts—“What was your last original thought?” Take back your power, take back your hearts and minds, and learn what it means to be truly free!
Eldon Taylor’s philosophy can best be encompassed by this quote from his New York Times best seller, Choices and Illusions:
"Many believe that self-help and self-improvement is about rags to riches, failure to success, and so forth, when indeed it is the beginning of a journey into self-discovery . . . Inside every human being is an eternal truth and a life purpose. Using our mind power is simply starting the engine on that journey of self-discovery and highest self-actualization."
