30. TSD has initiated 144 projects relating to the control of human behavior i.e. [redacted] during the ten years of operation of the MKULTRA program. Twenty five (25) of these projects remain in existence at this time while a number of others are in various stages of termination.

Hypnotic Experimentation and Research, 10 February 1954
1.) A posthypnotic of the night before (pointed finger, you will sleep) was enacted. Misses [redacted] immediately progressed to a deep hypnotic state with no further suggestion. This was to test whether the mere carrying out of the posthypnotic would produce the state of hypnosis desired. Needless to say, it did.

2.) Miss [redacted] was then instructed (having previously expressed a fear of firearms in any fashion) that she would use every method at her disposal to awaken Miss [redacted] (now in a deep hypnotic sleep) and failing this, she would pick up a pistol nearby and fire it at Miss [redacted]. She was instructed that her rage would be so great that she would not hesitate to "kill" for failing to awaken. Miss [redacted] carried out these suggestions to the letter including firing the (unloaded pneumatic pistol) gun at [redacted] and then proceeding to fall into a deep sleep.
