“In the early 1970s, reflecting Harlow’s interest moving away from attachment issues to mental illness, he built a black isolation chamber – the ‘pit of despair’ – in which a rhesus monkey was hung upside down for up to 2 years, unable to move or see the world, fed through a grid at the bottom of the V-shaped device. Through this process, Harlow was successful in creating a ‘primate model of mental illness’. The monkeys once removed, after months or years, were shattered and psychotic.

Harlow began his experiments with monkeys in 1959.
Do not think for a minute that variations on these kinds of experiments aren’t done on human beings, in a variety of (less obvious) ways, including the use of both physical & meta-physical technologies.
“As Above, So Below”
