The Mystery of General Anesthesia & Lost Time
"General anesthetics are an essential part of surgery and modern life. There's just one problem, because, surprisingly, we don’t know how they work. Thank you for watching and reading the description. Part 2 will be up in a month" from video introduction
Missing Time & Consciousness
Anesthesia helps many of us during our lives, whether we need a local painkiller at the dentist, numbing eye drops for laser vision correction or general anesthesia for major surgery. But even though anesthetics have been used in many procedures for more than 150 years, doctors and scientists still don't know exactly how these medicines work in the body
The Black Box of Anesthesia
"In the days before anesthesia, surgery was about the worst ordeal you could endure. Patrick Purdon, Assistant Professor of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School, gives producer Tim Howard a tour of Mass General Hospital’s famous Ether Dome, an operating theater that would have resonated with the screams of patients on a daily basis in the early 1800s. Writer Julie Fenster introduces us to a con artist-turned-dentist named William Morton, the man who would become famous in 1846 (if undeservedly, as contemporaries would claim) for the discovery of painless surgery.
With the discovery of anesthesia, however, came a strange new problem: nobody was quite sure what was happening when the brain slipped from consciousness into this new, drugged state. We meet Carl Zimmer, whose own experience with anesthesia leads him to wonder how it’s possible that time seems to simply disappear when you go under. What happens in that invisible moment? And why is it that some patients remain conscious, even when they appear to be knocked out?.." from the Radiolab Podcast above.
Medical Causes of Lost Time
Losing Time: The Insidious Nature of Dissociative Amnesia
Nothing about dissociative identity disorder is quite what the most popular phrases used to describe it imply. “Losing time” is no exception. When we talk about losing time we’re talking about severe dissociative amnesia which, in a milder form, is something I believe everyone experiences. But the phrase “losing time” suggests a highly dramatic, easily recognizable aberration. In my experience, however, dissociative amnesia is startlingly surreptitious. It’s easy to be unaware that you’re losing time at all.." from the article: Losing Time: The Insidious Nature of Dissociative Amnesia
There are many medical causes of memory loss we can experience in the normal course of our lives. The article below goes through several of those causes.
What Is Lost Time Memory And How Can It Affect Us?
We would like to believe that all our memories are there forever, but this is often not what happens. We can lose memories, misremember what has occurred, or have other errors in what we recall. This article discusses different types of memory loss, the causes of lost memories, and what a person can do if they are concerned about memory loss.
Theories About Lost Time Memory
There are some theories as to how lost time memories work. Steven Johnson has one idea. He points to research showing that our brain stores memories in two areas. One part is the hippocampus, and the other is the amygdala. Damage to either of these brain structures can lead to various types of memory loss.
The amygdala is involved with storing, retrieving, and processing emotional memories, while the hippocampus is a central processing structure for learning and memory. Damage to the hippocampus can interfere with long-term memories. Damage to the amygdala can cause problems with the memory of emotional events, changes in emotional response, and trouble with decision-making. Traumatic experiences can damage the amygdala, resulting in loss of memory and emotional dysregulation.
Types Of Memory Loss
One type of memory loss is the rewriting of memories. Theories about this change in memory suggest that every time you remember something, it gets rewritten in your brain. Researchers are investigating how we can use this memory process to help people overcome traumatic memories. They have found that by quickly invoking an unpleasant memory multiple times shortly after the memory forms, it can be erased, or at least the unpleasant association and response can be significantly reduced by recalling the event over and over within a short period.
This form of memory loss is when you forget something about a specific event. The rest of your memory may be fine, but that particular memory is missing. This type of memory loss is called lacunar amnesia because it leaves a gap in a person’s memory. There is a missing memory, and it can be frustrating trying to figure out what it is you can’t remember. In most cases, it's not due to a traumatic event but results from brain damage to the limbic system. The limbic system is the part of the brain responsible for emotions and memories about emotional events.
A memory error is when you cannot recall a specific memory or remember it in a way different from the actual event. An example of a memory error is remembering something that never happened or remembering an event with details other than what actually occurred. There are many reasons why a memory gap like this can happen, including experiencing.." from the article: What Is Lost Time Memory And How Can It Affect Us?
Mind Control Technology Currently in Use
We all have heard about the rumored technology for years and even the moniker "The Voice of God" has been used for a long time. With the "Havana Syndrome" of the past few years there can be no doubt our military and others have had this technology for a considerable time. If we have it no doubt other entities can have more advanced technology or they use psychic abilities we lack.
Here is an interesting article to provide some background.
Accidental FOIA Reveals Mind Control Documents; Here’s Further Evidence This Technology Exists
"Journalist Curtis Waltman filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Washington State Fusion Center (which is partnered with Department of Homeland Security) to obtain information about Antifa and white supremacist groups; instead of getting information on how the agency targets the groups, he got way more than the information he was looking for – Curtis was accidentally sent a mysterious file with the label “EM effects on human body.zip.” The file included methods of “remote mind control,” MuckRock reported.
According to MuckRock, the mind control documents came from the Department of Homeland Security-linked agency in the form of a file called “EM effects on human body.zip.” The file reportedly contained various diagrams detailing the horrors of “psycho-electronic weapon effects.”

The Phenomenon of Missing Time & Alien Abductions
If we put aside the medical causes and we have a person in reasonably good health what then do we make of "missing time" or memory loss in association with the trauma of abduction?
We know it happens to people and that whomever or whatever is inducing amnesia, sedation or using psychic manipulation. Just like the drug (Midazolam, sold under the brand name Versed) used for anesthesia after which you remember nothing about the time you were unconscious so to it seems the "others" are using a similar method on us.
The article below by Nick Redfern covers a lot of ground but worth the read.
Missing Time & Alien Abductions
My Final Focus on Alien Abductions for a While: Missing Time and Missing Souls
"Now, it's time for our strange search for the truth about what, precisely, government agencies know about the alien abduction phenomenon – and about the abductees, too – is at its end. Unless, that is, there is a big development in the subject. Thanks to the provisions of the Freedom of Information Acts of both the United States and the United Kingdom, we know with complete certainty that various military and intelligence agencies have opened secret files on countless people who have encountered otherworldly beings. The evidence, we know, dates back to the early 1950s. That was when the Federal Bureau of Investigation quietly opened files on numerous people in the Contactee field. They included George Adamski, George Van Tassel, Orfeo Angelucci, and Truman Bethurum. All of them – and many more too - came under the careful and secret scrutiny of J. Edgar Hoover’s G-Men. Of course, the Contactee experience didn’t involve people being abducted against their will. For the most part, the so-called Space-Brothers would invite amazed people onto their craft. Nevertheless, the phenomenon of the Contactees is an important part of the overall story which this book tells; chiefly because it demonstrates that the FBI was intrigued – and at times very concerned – by those who claimed face to face extraterrestrial-human interaction back in the fifties. But, then, with a new decade looming large on the horizon, something changed the nature of how and why aliens interact with us. It was nothing positive. It was all-things negative. For us, at least.." from the article: My Final Focus on Alien Abductions for a While: Missing Time and Missing Souls
Missing or lost time can happen to us a number of ways. The most unnatural and threatening way is from an outside person(s) of entity(s). People drug people with drugs like Rohypnol in which people also experience lost time. The phenomenon of lost time associated with a phenomenon that may or may not include strange craft or beings is recorded very far back. With a self negating phenomenon and a social inclination to ridicule or shame the reality of this has long been ignored. That seems to be changing.
