DERREN BROWN APOCALYPSE - immoral?

Derren basically gets a guy to think the world is ending and that his FAMILY MIGHT BE DEAD. This just to get him off the sofa?

This is sick.

Well, it was a bit more than getting him off the sofa.

Not to mention he did sign up for it, sort of.

"Most importantly for me, as well as Steven, the changes have to be profound and self-perpetuating. The challenge is to set up new thought patterns that won’t just grind to a halt after the initial adrenaline of being involved in a TV show has worn off.
I have maintained a relationship with Steven and continue to ensure that the work was all worth it. "

It won't even work. Derren has 'dinners' with the guy. Guaranteed to keep the suggestions going that he is motivated. Using ANCHORING techniques. A year on(after Derren has found another idiot) he'll be back as he was, full up on his own bogies. probably with light PTSD.

the mass of suggestion used to MAKE this man ACT cured...Derren's career etc. How DARE he not go along with it.

How do you know it won't work? You're not the guy who went through it all. You're just jumping to conclusions there.

And if he goes back to how he was, then how is this immoral? It'd be as if nothing had happened.

THE IMMORAL PART IS HIM MAKING HIM THINK HIS FAMILY MIGHT BE DEAD.

If you'd read it all...

For an EXPERIENCE to change us it must HIT US HARD. Brown says he'll suffer no NEGATIVE effects because all that was cushioned. But he needs to be NEGATIVELY affected to be changed. It's the fear of losing his family that forces the change.

It's basically like when you nearly get run over you feel elated to be alive. It's TEMPORARY. and Brown ADMITS that his dinners with Stephen are about CONTINUING the process, which means augmenting the Anchoring that is keeping Stephen happy. Those dinners will end.

He signed up to become scared that his family were dead or had become infected zombies? No.
