Subconscious Mind Saves Prisoner
Dr. Lothar von BlenkSchmidt, a member of the Rocket Society and an outstandingresearch electronic engineer, used his subconscious mind to free himself from certain death at the hands of brutal guards in a Russian a prisoner of war camp coal mine. He saw men dying all around him as fellow prisoners were watched over by brutal guards, arrogant officers and sharp, fast-thinking commissars.
Soon after his arrival, von BlenkSchmidt’s started concentrating on his escape. He knew that his subconscious mind would somehow find a way. His home in Germany was destroyed, family wiped out and his friends and former associates were either killed in the war or were in concentration camps.
Von BlenkSchmidt said to his subconscious mind, “I want to go to Los Angeles, and you will find the way.” He had seen pictures of Los Angeles and remembered some of the boulevards and buildings. Every day and night he imagined that he was walking down Wilshire Boulevard with an American girl that he met in Berlin prior to the war (she is now his wife). In his imagination, they would visit the stores, ride buses and eat in the restaurants. Every night, von BlenkSchmidt made it a special point to drive his imaginary American automobile up and down the boulevards of Los Angeles. He made all this vivid and real. The pictures in his mind were as real and as natural to him as one of the trees outside the prison camp.
Every morning, the chief guard would count the prisoners as they were lined up. He would call out “one, two, three…”, and on his last morning at the camp, when 17 was called out, which was von BlenkSchmidt’s number in sequence, he stepped aside. In the meantime, the guard was called away for a minute or so, and on his return he started by mistake on the next man as number 17. When the crew returned in the evening, the number of men was the same, and he was not missed, and it took some time before the discovery was made. Von BlenkSchmidt walked out of the camp undetected and kept walking for 24 hours, resting in a deserted town the next day. He was able to survive by fishing and hunting wildlife.
He found coal trains going to Poland and traveled on them by night until finally, he reached Poland. With the help of friends, von BlenkSchmidt made his way to Lucerne, Switzerland. One evening at the Palace Hotel in Lucerne, he had a talk with a man and his wife from the United States. This man asked if von BlenkSchmidt would care to be a guest at his home in Santa Monica, California. He accepted, and when he arrived in Los Angeles, von BlenkSchmidt found that their chauffeur drove him along Wilshire Boulevard and many other boulevards, which I he imagined so vividly in the long months in the Russian coalmines. He recognized the buildings, which he had seen in his mind so often. It actually seemed as if von BlenkSchmidt had been in Los Angeles before. He had reached his goal.
