The farmer who prospered

Everybody knows that the best and safest business is that of real estate, given to the fact that land, as log as one has it, it will always be fruitful and has the power to keep an individual afloat even in the case of unemployment.

However, even if many individuals know about the power and efficiency of the real estate business, few of us know about the existence of industrial real estate, a business that turns average people into millionaires and millionaires into billionaires.

I know of a friend with whom I grew up and went to school with, who has made billions thanks to the industrial real estate business.

His name is James and grew up in a farm in North Carolina, out of which his family made a good living.

Farmers are well known for their ability to see opportunity where it seems there is none, in other words to make a mountain out of a hill, since they live out of growth and should therefore know how and where things emerge the strongest, something that requires a lot of work and a good degree of talent, for the land is a tough tenant and does not forgive poor judgement of any kind.

industria_agricola1Farmers are also very well known for their virtue of deep and strong patience because, as we all know, nothing grows fast and easy and one must work earnestly for a long period of time in order to see a small degree for which one has toiled so hard.

James learned all about farming, for his father made sure that he grew up knowledgeable in this matter so that he may have it as a good tool in case whatever he decided to do outside of farming went belly up.

Farmers also possess rather more notoriously than everybody else the virtue of hard work, because in the farming business whoever makes best use of time finishes first a reason why one can be sure that one will never hear a farmer complain out of the hardships of work.

James took all these virtues and knowledge to invest them in an entirely different field, one that would not make him simply well off like his family but would make him a man of billions.

The way he did this was first and foremost by travelling around the world carrying those well-built hawk eyes that would penetrate the deepest secrets of the most vulnerable lands out of which he would create immense wealth both for him and for the land itself.

After having journeyed far and wide he kept a journal with several ideas, many of which he would dismiss. However those that survived his tough judgement, became the foundation of a kingdom that will most likely outlive five generations of ours.

His glance was set not in farming but in industrial real estate, not in America but in far off Asia by creating an empire of commercial dockyards for industrial Chinese shipping, a business that has become a titan.

Theaters, the new Hypnotists

Fiction has always fanaticized with the concept of time traveling; the most famous one of those obsessions is the film Back to the Future.

What if I told you that there is an actual way of going somewhere else via hipnosis?

Mankind is exhausted because of the hardships of life and the daily battle for survival,

We live in a world where the majority of men struggle to feed their family and stay afloat. There are entire continents where people live in misery, hunger and disease, where water is undrinkable and food is rotten.

In a world such as this men must cope with tremendous amount pressure thus escaping the here and now for a couple of hours in order to maintain sanity and mental health. There is however a place where the here and now vanquishes into the nothing and where the dimensions lift and sink into magic; that place is called a movie theater.

Movie theaters are indeed the equivalent of a trance for there your mind is literarily transported into another world. It is in fact the best method of hipnosis.

Hypnosis is used to heal humans from bad memories, traumas, phobias and other conditions that torment or affect the human mind.

There have been several famous hypnotists throughout history the first being the famous Franz Mesmer who developed a healing procedure known as Animal Magnetism.

Animal Magnetism was a technique in which a patient was asked to seat in a chair with his eyes closed. The physician would then speak in a soft voice words associated with relaxation and would gently touch certain points of the patient’s body either with the hand or with an iron dipstick after which the ill person would experience strange sensations of shock or violent vibrations that would end up healing.


Another great hypnotizer was Dr. James Braid who actually invented the term hypnosis after Hypnos the Greek goddess of sleep. It was this man who gave hypnosis a scientific method of recovery and acquired abundant fame as well as recognition by the scientific world.

His method consisted in holding his finger approximately fifteen centimeters above the patent’s forehead holding an objet of a shinny nature such as a candle or a clean coin and ask the patient to stare at it with the least blinking as possible, which would result in the patient’s eyelids to close involuntarily. It was at this stage where Brain would use certain commands that would hit the subconscious like an arrow, and healing would occur as a result.

Movie theaters use the same procedure to transport us into another reality. Think about it and ask yourself the following three questions: A) When was the last time that the screen was at the level of your eyes?

  1. B) When was the last time that the lights were on at a movie theater?
  2. C) When was the last time that people were allowed to talk freely on a movie theater?

I guarantee you, dear reader that your answer will be NEVER.

However few understand what is the pillar for a successful movie experience as well as for a session of hypnosis, remember what Sherlock Holmes once said “It is the little things which are the most important.”

In this particular case the secret is in the theater seating. In order for a spectator to leave the immediate here and now he/she must be sitting comfortably.  Theater seats must be soft yet not too soft; spacious yet not too spacious and of a color that blends well with darkness in order to bring the reality of the projector to people’s minds.

As you can see the factors in a session of hypnosis and in the movie experience are practically the same, thus the next time you go to the movies my friends be aware that you will experience a necessary hypnosis.
