However, Binaural seems to be similar to a hypnotic kind of music, if so, then it may come under spiritism since hypnosis is "spell-binding" Deu 18: 11. But we can do this consciously or unconsciously, letting others control us. So, thinking ability is important here, and according to knowledge greater accountability. 

IF ... kissing a frog will turn them into a handsome Prince or Princess ... then I will believe that two tones of music has something ... ANYTHING AT ALL .... with the "spirit world".  And for those in Rio Linda .. IT DOES NOT ... and neither does binaural sounds of ANY type.

When I was a young teenager ....  when there was no such thing as stereo music ... there was ONE channel, and that was it.  

I STILL remember the phenomena as if were yesterday of putting on earphones from a transistor radio, and having the sound ... for the very first time ... spring forth from the MIDDLE of my head instead of at the ears.  It had NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with the occult, spiritism, or the like ... and neither does binaural beats.    ZIP   ZERO  NADA   NOTHING   GOOSE EGGS.

Merely an auditory illusion.

... And if you knew ANYTHING AT ALL about hypnotic states, you would know that most people go in and out of hypnotic states all the time ... highway hypnosis is a hypnotic state as the classic well known example... so is cramming for an exam ... or time sense,  in times of great danger, being altered, etc.

The Society apparently thinks people getting up on stage and acting like chickens is hypnosis .... and it is.... but you CANNOT MAKE SOMEONE DO SOMETHING AGAINST HIS ETHICS through hypnosis ... that is an ignorant fantasy.  Hypnosis can remove their inhibitions IF ...IF ... they want to do what is suggested.

.... and you would be SURPRISED what a LOT of people really want to do, when given permission.

That is why the operational rule of conduct is as follows:

"Anything that we did not give you specific permission to do ... is forbidden".

Other than the fact that you misspelled the words, "Scientists", "That's", "morons", "haven't" ( ... "morrons" ... THAT was worth a hearty contextual laugh ! ), and the word  "understood", you are as wrong about television programming as the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.

I am curious... where did you GET your information to support that absurd assertion?

You can always tell when a person is caught up in the Mass Hysteria of the day, the "nuts du jour" ... they cannot themselves answer a simple question of WHY they believe what they do ( television programming ) and then they try to divert attention from their ignorance to some other person. 

It is so frequent it soon becomes boring in its predictability.

I have not watched television on over a year, now, and being 6'-6" tall and weighing 287 pounds, I am not overweight ... I am undertall. ( ... makes note to Program Director to cue the laugh track ...)

And by the way ... I read the link you posted .. and it is based on MANY false premises ... influence is NOT HYPNOSIS! 

If you had TRIED to explain it in your own words, perhaps you would have realized how goofy it really is.  That is very often the case.

I too, jumped off of porches with a towel around my neck when I was a small boy, imitating Superman ... but I did not leap out of windows from tall buildings.

There is a difference!

I am sorry but you are incorrect on this, James. Please look up involuntary hypnosis online. You will find plenty of examples. People have gone to jail over it. It's a very scary thing.

I go back to my statement, (paraphrased) "You cannot make someone do what he ethically would not do ... but you would be surprised what a person WANTS to do, when his inhibitions are removed."

Some people are hypnotizeable... some are not ... and a great majority of people KNOW what they are doing when they get up on stage and act like a chicken, or engage in orgiastic sex, or kill someone ... because their ethics would have allowed them to do that in the first place WITHOUT hypnosis ...

If I gave a person a strong post-hypnotic suggestion to murder Adolph Hitler, as an example ... most people would try and follow through, as an obsession ... because they would do that if they normally could.

... and don't believe what may "experts" say about hypnosis ... they are selling books or scripts or audio "tapes".

      No. Donations have no relevance as to whether a person is counted as a Witness or has any particular assignment or privilege in our organization. (Acts 8:18-20) In fact, most donations are made anonymously. Each Witness donates his time, energy, and resources to our worldwide work according to his own desire and circumstances.—2 Corinthians 9:7.

      Government census bureaus often determine their figures by asking people which religious group they identify themselves with. For example, the U.S. Census Bureau states that their surveys “sought to determine whether the respondents regarded themselves as adherents of a religious community,” adding that the resulting figures are “subjective rather than objective.” By contrast, we count as Jehovah’s Witnesses only those who preach to others and who report that activity, not those who merely identify themselves as Witnesses.

      Although we do not include such ones in the number of Witnesses, we welcome them in our congregations. Most of them attend the annual Memorial of Christ’s death, so the number of such ones can be roughly determined by the difference between the attendance at this meeting and the number of Witnesses. In 2015, the attendance at the Memorial was 19,862,783.
      Many who do not attend our meetings benefit from our free home Bible study program. During 2015, we conducted an average of 9,708,968Bible studies each month, some of which were held with several individuals at the same time.

      Each month, Witnesses report their preaching activity to their local congregation. This report is made voluntarily.
      Congregation reports are tabulated, and the totals are sent to the local branch office. The branch sends the totals for each country or territory to our world headquarters.
      At the end of every service year, * the peak number of Witnesses for each land during that year is determined. These figures are added together to determine the number of Witnesses worldwide. Detailed reports for each country, including experiences from the preaching work, are published in the Yearbook of Jehovah’s Witnesses. These reports encourage us, just as similar reports encouraged the early Christians.—Acts 2:41; 4:4; 15:3.

      Hi there, My name is RJ and for two days I have been nonstop searching for clarification on counting time with unbaptized children. The organized to do Jehovah's will briefly talks about it. It states that a family head can count the time, study, and return visits for family worship. I understand that part. 4 hours per month, 4 return visits per month, and one study. Here is my dilemma, under the same sub-heading as that part it states that we count time, return visits, and bible studies for any one whom we study with that is unbaptized. I have four children and not only do we have our weekly family worship but each child also has their own independent study as well, age appropriate material for each child. So my question is, where can I find clarification of the situation? I was told no matter what you do with your family max is 4hr/ month, 4R.V./month, and one study/ month, however they are all unbaptized bible students. Thank you for your time and patience. - Brother RJ
