Mark Pilkington's 2015 International UFO Congress presentation:
The Abuses of Enchantment
In this updated audio-visual presentation, Mark follows up his work for his book and documentary film Mirage Men, showing how military and intelligence operators have shaped and exploited beliefs in UFOs, ghosts, monsters, vampires, and elements from folklore and conspiracy theories to create an armory of supernatural weapons of mass deception capable of manipulating consciousness on a grand scale. The inspiration of these toys, tools, and techniques has come from a range of sources including fiction, cinema, stage magic, advertising, and occultism, and has, for many of its intended and unintended targets, altered their very perception and understanding of the world around us.
