Reprogramming the Subconscious
We're living in a world full of suggestion to the point that most of us are not even thinking our own thoughts. This is shockingly closer to the truth than it may at first sound. You only have to take a look at the world around you to see it in everyday life. Look at how the 'latest trend' in fashion, cars or toys becomes the next biggest craze. Or how a seemingly unknown pop star rises from absolutely nowhere and is almost more successful than the Beatles overnight. Its not through our independent free thinking, this is through suggestion.
To understand this properly we need to know a little biology first. The left side of the brain controls the motor and sensory functions of the right side of the body, and is responsible for scientific functions, understanding written and spoken language, number skills and reasoning. Analytical, if you like.
The right side of the brain controls the motor and sensory functions of the left side of the body. It also controls artistic functions such as music, art, awareness and insight. People also believe it is the right hand side which connects us with deeper levels of consciousness. This is non-analytical.
What the elite wish to do is to suppress the right hand side of the brain by shutting it out, not allowing the right hand side of the brain to have any influence - the 'left brain prison'.
People need to conform to what others tell them, we follow rules and regulations all day every day. Kids at school conform to rules, wear the same uniform and are taught (indoctrinated) to the same curriculum. When your at work, in your uniform, filling in paperwork, using a pc, even organising stock or merchandising etc. When you drive a car, Direction, traffic, speed, pedestrians, road signs, etc. Its all left brain thinking. And then you put the TV on when you get home and sit there in a trance state, 'hypnotised' by what the TV is telling you. Even the brainwave state we go into when watching TV is the same as that of a hypnotic trance.
Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is not a state of deep sleep. It does involve the induction of a trance-like condition, but when in it, the patient is actually in an enhanced state of awareness. In this state, the conscious mind is suppressed and the subconscious mind is revealed.
The 'therapist' is able to suggest ideas, concepts and lifestyle adaptations to the patient, the seeds of which become firmly planted.
Hypnosis aims to re-program patterns of behavior within the mind, this means it can make people think and act in a controlled way.
Hypnosis is thought to work by altering our state of consciousness in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert. The conscious control of the mind is inhibited, and the subconscious mind awoken. Since the subconscious mind is a deeper-seated, more instinctive force than the conscious mind, this is the part which has to change for a persons behavior and physical state to alter.
Take a look at this following picture, this is a great way of testing your left and right sides of the brain. First, try to say the words and ignore the colours, then do it again and try saying the colours and not the words. So it has a greater effect read the words or say the colours as quickly as you would normally read any other text.
OK, when you read the words rather than say the colour you are using the left hand side of the brain. I found this very easy. But try and say the colours rather than the word, its a lot more difficult, I keep stumbling and getting the odd one wrong. And this is using the right hand side of the brain. Most people will easily read the words like me, but most will struggle or at least stumble while just saying the colour, and this is a great example of how our use of the right hand side of the brain is being suppressed. The left and right side of the brain should be in harmony with no side dominating the other.
So much information is implanted in our minds when we watch TV, and even when we walk around shops in towns and cities, go to sports grounds, read magazines, or surf the internet. This information later filters through our subconscious into our conscious mind as thoughts, reactions, decisions or perceptions which we believe to be our own.
Here are some obvious examples of this kind of suggestion.
The suggestions above are what we call advertising, implanting ideas in our minds, giving us information for left-brain reactions.
Not all of the suggestions we are subjected to are this clear to see though, this is where subliminal messaging comes in. Subliminal means literally "below threshold". Remember as I said before it is the subconscious that must change for a persons behavior and physical state to alter.
Subliminal stimuli are any sensory stimuli below an individual's absolute threshold for conscious perception. Visual stimuli may be quickly flashed before an individual may process them, or flashed and then masked, thereby interrupting the processing. Audio stimuli may be played below audible volumes, similarly masked by other stimuli, or recorded backwards in a process called back-masking. Introduced in 1897, the concept became controversial as "subliminal messages" in 1957 when marketing practitioners claimed its potential use in persuasion.
James Vicary used subliminal messages in a Theatre in New Jersey. After using subliminal messages telling people to eat popcorn and drink coca cola, over time results showed that the sales for coca cola and popcorn had risen by over 50%. As a result subliminal advertising was ruled a threat to public freedom by the UN and made illegal. However in 1962 the results of Vicary's experiment were declared untrue. Since then there has been much controversy over whether or not subliminal messages actually work. I have no doubt they do, and they are everywhere. One good example to show the effectiveness of subliminal messages is Derren Brown, if you've not seen his shows its worth a look.
He did a live show where he demonstrated a video containing subliminal messages which made people stick to their seats. It worked too, my partner couldn't get up, I struggled at first but was able to still get up, it has a different effect on everyone, but many people claimed it worked on them and they were unable to stand up.
I also remember an episode where he meets a woman for the first time outside Hamleys in London. (Huge toy store, over three or four floors with thousands of toys.) He tells her to go around on her own and choose one toy out of the entire store, but not to reveal yet what it was. Later Derren of course has correctly guessed what toy the woman would pick before she even arrived at the store. How? Psychic? No, even Derren Brown says he is not psychic. In this particular example he has simply used suggestion. Among other subtle suggestions and gestures he slipped in comments like, "giraffe a good journey". What he did was put several suggestions into her mind and she ended up choosing the exact same toy giraffe out of a choice of thousands of toys. This woman genuinely believed she had chosen that toy through her own choice. She was amazed, and couldn't understand how he could have known what toy she would pick.
Another good example was when Derren Brown used subliminal messages in a shopping center and pretended to be a homeless guy. The subliminals were placed all over the shopping center and were aimed at making people feel emotionally sensitive and generous. What happened when people passed the 'homeless guy'? They were emptying their wallets for him, going to cash points and withdrawing notes for him, even taking their shoes off for him! Derren Brown classes this as Perception without awareness, or PWA rather than subliminal as subliminal is deliberately intended not to be seen by the conscious mind, whereas PWA is there to be seen but not consciously absorbed. But in terms of what we're speaking of here, I'm referring to it as subliminal, below threshold.
The following images contain subliminal messages, see if you can spot any?
It seems sex is a reoccurring theme when it comes to subliminal messages too. Some people say this makes the product subconsciously appealing, meaning you could be attracted to something purely based on a subconscious thought. I say thats true to a large extent, and there are some books, which aren't easy to buy but can be downloaded as a pdf, called 'Subliminal Seduction' and 'Sexploitation' by Wilson Bryan Key. Disney is notorious for using subliminal messages, they use both subliminal and consciously visible subtle suggestions. When a new Disney film comes out, subliminal message hunters compete to find the messages in these movies and post them on youtube and various blogs around the internet before anyone else. Thats how much Disney use subliminal messages. And here some of them are.
So lets see, in picture of the Rescuers there is a naked Lady in the window in the background, the little mermaid has a phallus clear as day on the front cover, there's sex written in the stars in the Lion King and Jessica Rabbit with her beaver out! This is just a couple of examples out of hundreds I could have used. Remember, in case you'd forgotten, these films are aimed at children. We're talking about kids from 3, 4, 5 years old up to young teenagers, why are they being bombarded with sexual suggestions?
The use of subliminal messages can also be seen in films such as the Exorcist. Is it now that difficult to understand why this film was banned and had people actually sh*tting themselves after seeing it? Not when you know subliminal messages were used to make the film more scary and subconsciously tell a different story. Wilson Brian Key says of The Exorcist in his book 'Sexploitation';
"Various sexual perversions, strongly taboo in the American Culture, were cleverly incorporated into the film. Pedophilia, for example (the use of children for sexual stimulation), was a paramount subliminal theme carefully arranged so the audience would not consciously deal with the forbidden subject. Unconscious perception, is peculiarly sensitive to both sex and death taboos. In the Movie, Regan was 12 years old. Her language and actions, genital exposure, masturbation, etc. were sexually provocative. Throughout much of the movie she was posed spread-eagled and tied to the bedposts in bondage. Her movements were often quite purposely sensual. As the wounds opened on her arms and legs, they appeared as lash cuts inflicted with a whip. There was even the sound of a whiplash as these wounds appeared. The cut on her leg, however, was also reminiscent of a vagina, the slang terms "gash" and "slit" suggest that the unconscious may associate wounds with the female genitals.
Sadomasochistic themes were quite obvious and shocking, though most viewers repressed the highly taboo real meanings of these scenes. The use of strong taboo sexual symbolism throughout the Exorcist was striking. In the attic scene Regan's mother held a candle that ejaculated a burst of flame when the caretaker surprised her. The bedposts in Regans room cast phallic shadows on the walls."
The Exorcist is certainly not a unique case, there are subliminal messages in most if not all films, certainly those made in Hollywood, and especially kids films.
There was a pro George Bush Commercial which was exposed during his presidential campaign. Although Bush refers to it as a "subliminable" message rather than a subliminal one. A well educated alcoholic that George Bush. It was exposed because the subliminal was shown for too long. The next video looks at this and also shows David Icke talking briefly about subliminal messages.
I used to have a video compilation of subliminal messages on the page but these keep being deleted from youtube. Just search for subliminal messages in film/tv and you will find countless examples.
So, what is going on? I think it's quite simple. As soon as you start to see that this is not an 'individual conspiracy'. The global conspiracy is one agenda being orchestrated through any and all means. This includes filling our subconscious with suggestions which can alter our perception of things. This is just another form of controlling how we think. Subliminal advertising has been illegal officially since the 1950s, but does it look like its not happening?
I'm no expert in this subject although I do find it fascinating, the final point i'm going to make is regarding the influence this has on Children. Look at what has happened to our attitudes towards sex in the last 50 years. In the 1950s women who wore skirts above their knees were generally regarded as whores. In 2010 every young girl in a club or pub dresses in next to nothing. In the 1950's sex outside of marriage was a taboo. In 2010 waiting for marriage before becoming sexually active is rare and increasingly considered abnormal by society.
I think this change of behaviour is a result of bombarding our subconscious with sexual imagery and suggestion such as in the examples used above. Remember, it is the subconscious that must change for a persons behavior and physical state to alter. Otherwise there's another explanation as to why our attitudes to sex changed so much in such a short space of time?
Another common theme in Disney films is the broken family unit. For example, off the top of my head, and i'm no expert;
Snow White and Cinderella have no parents at all and live with an evil Stepmother; Ariel in the Little Mermaid has no Mother; nor does Belle in Beauty and the Beast, jasmine in Aladdin or Pocahontas; in Bambi there's no father and the mother dies; in the Lion King Simba's father is killed by an evil uncle; and i'm sure you could add more of your own to that list. These theme's are repeated again and again.
