If you know your history, you know that Ben Franklin was opposed to naming the eagle as the symbol of the United States.
He wanted the turkey to be the national symbol.
He took time out from being the stud of Paris to write his daughter about the choice of a symbol for the United States:
"For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead Tree near the River, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the Labour of the Fishing Hawk; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a Fish, and is bearing it to his Nest for the Support of his Mate and young Ones, the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him.
"With all this Injustice, he is never in good Case but like those among Men who live by Sharping & Robbing he is generally poor and often very lousy. Besides he is a rank Coward: The little King Bird not bigger than a Sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the District. He is therefore by no means a proper Emblem for the brave and honest Cincinnati of America who have driven all the King birds from our Country . . .
"I am on this account not displeased that the Figure is not known as a Bald Eagle, but looks more like a Turkey. For the Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America . . . He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on."
Franklin never backed off from sharing his opinions. His opinion on hypnosis cast doubts on Mesmer which continued to this day.
You can’t change the symbol of the United States. The eagle has been engraved in our national personality.
But you can prove him wrong about hypnosis in just 30 minutes.
That’s how long it will take you to listen to "Automatic Attraction", one of the four recordings that are part of The Hypnotic Secret.
The multi-track recording is fascinating. I don’t know anyone else who records hypnosis this way.
The main track is heard in the center of your head.
Special messages go to both your right brain through your left ear, and to your left brain through your right ear.
And when all three messages combine at the same time…
