      How Television Constantly Hypnotizes Us

      Example: "News."

      The "anchor" stares in your eyes. (Nowadays a beautiful young woman often.) They speak in a strange monotone voice. She telepathically, it seems, transmits her thoughts to you as you can see them in the golden rectangle next to her head. She shows you videos of dead bloody bodies on the street, and cute old people turning 100, then children playing at school, then a video about a murderer. The negative imagery immediately shocks us into a kind of trance state where we can't think straight. There is a subtle message that you are intelligent, smart, professional because you are Informed About The World and What Is Going On and You Now Know What Is Important.
      The Cabal calls this Trauma-Induced Trance and is a quick way to easily hypnotize someone, especially if they are willingly staring at the images, and willingly listening to the sounds.

      I agree. There are so many positive things happening all around us every day! More people are becoming aware of Lucid Dreaming, and it seems more people every day want to be physically and mentally healthy. I see electric cars and community gardens popping up. Things like that make me smile.

      I get my news from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, so this doesn't affect me.

      It'd be interesting to test this by noting what types of messages follow shock inducing news stories.

      Interesting. Cool Idea, except I personally hate TV. It seems like it's either sex or death, maybe trying to stimulate the lower chakras, and keep us in flight/flee/fluck mode.

      I'll be honest, I think it's simpler and less purposeful. Shock does cause hypnosis, but most of this hypnosis is oriented at keeping people glued to the screen and keeping ratings up. They only want to induce trance so you won't change the channel.

      I have verizon fios, it used to have funimation channel. A channel with constant anime, but verizon cut it. Two years ago I was having sleeping problems, I'd stay up all night then fall asleep when it started to turn daylight because I felt safer. So I was watching funimation and it was at 4:46am that suddenly the t.v. or channel, i don't know exactly, made me go zombie, It was like my conscious mind was forcefully pushed aside and I stared into the screen and my jaw loosed, and I heard this jibberish repeated three time forwards and backwards, it sounded like an old car salesman they way the inflection of his voice was, then when it stopped i regained control of my mind and body and i freaked the fuck out and grabbed my remote and turned the channel, I hated how I had no control of it. I told my family the next day, they blamed it on my sleeping pattern, they told me maybe I was in the period where you're semi awake semi asleep, but I was wide awake watching anime laughing at the show then I was just sucked into a trance I had no control of. So I avoided that channel for 3 months, and I began to doubt myself and believe them that maybe I was tired, so at night again I decided to watch some anime, and when 4:46am came the t.v. started that thing, i felt wierd like i was going zombie and I started to hear that horrible voice so i freaked out and shook my head and closed my eyes and made lalalallalalala noises loud until I could grab my remote and get the channel changed as fast as possible, then I knew I wasn't crazy and I ran and told my sister, and months later that channel isn't on verizon fios anymore. Was i the only person who consciously realized this happened, did this happen to other people who didn''t realize it happened?. like what the fuck.

      Like that waking life dude said, media doesn't want to inform you: they want you to get used to all negativity in the world, desensitized, apathetic. That way, maybe you'll forget what having a voice feels like when confronting the problems of the world.

      maybe they nee to show the suffering, but then again, they don't give enough time span between each news snippen for the viewer to reflect properly, but maybe they don't want him to hate news bcz it makes him feel bad

      It's disgusting, as soon as a tragedy occurs you instantly start hearing people tell you how to think about it. These people have no credentials or expertise either, they just sit in front of a camera feeding the viewer their ignorant opinion about shit.

      I got intense chills, and then I shuddered, just reading this. Usually when shit like that happens, it's because I can relate because the same thing maybe happened to me. I have analyzed and seen so much fucking insane subliminal messaging and brain-polluting (brainwashing, the word itself is brainwashing because wash has a positive connotation!). For example, in the movie I just watched, The Return of the King, right before a battle the good guys shout, 'DEATH!' as a battle cry. Not "Death to the orcs," or "Death to the Dark Lord," just 'DEATH!'
      A good friend of mine who refuses to have a fakebook account told me, "If you notice, it's always about what I call SDD: Sex, Death, and Degradation." They usually mix sex with death and/or degradation.
      Yeah, TV already puts people in a hypnotic state, true, and I also think what happened to you is 100% real hardcore hypnotic electronic mind control. Of course, 4:46AM is the perfect time to do such a thing, because when you tell people about it, they will blame it on sleep deprivation. Even though it's been proven that there are cameras in the little black boxes for HDTV, and that hackers can watch us through our webcams without us knowing, people just don't want to believe in things that frighten them.

      That's because the dead were attacking, their war chant is naturally going to be Death. And even if they were using subliminal messaging, what's the purpose of sticking the word death in your mind? As a Death Worshiper, I'm struggling to fathom what nefarious purpose can be accomplished this way.

      I'm not trying to dismiss your sentiment just provide friendly criticism. Do you have any other examples of subliminal messages I may be familiar with? I see much more pragmatic subliminal messages, such as all the reams of action movies that lean us in support of the military industrial complex.

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      WTF. Man, that sounds horrible! A trance is caused when something grbs your full attention, and I think they study the aspects of phsycology to figure what best grabs those parts of your attention that matter to realize your current state. Is that the mechanism? Anyway, I'll research it.

      You think someone with high self-awareness can beat that subliminal effect?

      I don't think it's like brain washing, bcz even if you are fully in a trance, you still have control over what to do or accept, and it won't get into your sub and grow if you don't believe in it. My guess

      Don't force me to go all fanboy on you.

      1. Yes, the undead that Aragorn commanded were going to attack, but they hadn't attacked yet.
      2. The people that were chanting "Death!" were the people of Rohan who knew nothing of Aragorn's undead army.
      3. It's not in the fuckin book.


      And even if they were using subliminal messaging, what's the purpose of sticking the word death in your mind?

      To make us think about death.

      As a Death Worshiper, I'm struggling to fathom what nefarious purpose can be accomplished this way.

      Maybe look at it from the perspective of a Birth Whoreshipper.

      I'm not trying to dismiss your sentiment just provide friendly criticism. Do you have any other examples of subliminal messages I may be familiar with?

      Yes. Every commercial that was ever made, almost every movie made by Hollywood, and every TV show.

      I see much more pragmatic subliminal messages, such as all the reams of action movies that lean us in support of the military industrial complex.
      Yes.

      Your response to my criticism appears defensive. The opposite of a death worshiper is not a birth worshiper, and I'm still trying to fathom how death carries any negative or manipulative connotation. What does it accomplish?

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      Thnx
      I have a question:
      By subliminal, you mean something that catches our attention to make us focus on a certain idea being handled? If so, it's not so bad. In the long run, it is up to us if we believe in the idea, but there might be some effects that are stored in the sub due to it, since in a trance, we are very...uhm, whats the word... Something like recievable, open, something like that, like when we meditate then use autosugestions
      I fill my heart with fire, with passion, passion for what makes me nostalgic. A unique perspective fuels my fire, makes me discover new passions, more nostalgia. I love it.

      Actually it is not up to us to believe an idea. It is up to our neurological conditioning. To the brain, there is no true and false, there are strong associations and weak associations. If the same association is continuously reinforced (through commercials, etc) then our unconscious will lean in favor of it, regardless of our cognition's stance in its regard.

      Also a trance is not undivided attention, it is the opposite. It is when you stop paying attention to the information you take in. If you pay attention, the information must pass through your critical barrier. If you do not pay attention, the unconscious still takes in everything and the information gains direct access to our brain.

      wow! But doesn't our conscious have an effect on this? Effect our sub's 'dicision'? How it will handle the balance of the favors? We do create associations to why something is false through assiciations, so our conscious logic has to have a major effect on the balance of the favors in our sub's dicision
