One of the tortures for slaves is to keep them from going to the bathroom and relieving themselves. This is part of the hypnotic programming package. The anxiety that this creates increases the power of the programming in the brain, because the anxiety causes slight malfunctions with the brain’s judgment abilities. Mental and physical fatigue are also sought in the victim. For instance, water deprivation is common.
