from Reuters-science
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - People's brains react to a photograph of a frightened face, even when it is flashed on a screen too quickly to be consciously recognized, U.S. researchers said on Wednesday.
The team at Columbia University in New York found responses in the amygdala, the part of the brain associated with emotional responses, as well as the attention and vision regions of the cerebral cortex.

"What we think we've identified is a circuit in the brain that's responsible for enhancing the processing of unconsciously detected threats in anxious people," said Amit Etkin, who led the study.

"Our study shows that there's a very important role for unconscious emotions in anxiety," Etkin said.


Emotion are powerful tool. Hope nobody will use those findings against us...

Or maybe? Horrible news pictures are unforgettable -the way how war on terrorism is conducted has to do with it as well I suppose...

You bring up a great point jazzgul, and one that helps to explain why the news is so depressing!!!!

I remember seeing a news report several years ago(Southern California local) about Lucid dreaming and the "latest" research. The imagery all through out the report was dark and included a picture of a graveyard and open grave.........now why would a news piece associate a higher dreaming function with death? The uncomfortable images would help discourage attempts to dream consciously.......this study lends credibility to that rational. The fact that dreams are not readily identifiable with graveyards indicates someone intentionally equated the two.

Now, the question would be, why are horrible news pictures used? Maybe to instill an anxiety that is assuaged by the comfortable tone and reassurance of the broadcast authority figure? Hmmmmmmmmm.........

That explains why I've felt so good since I stopped watching the news. Or reading it. Or hearing it.

Yeah, it's been about 2 months now, just haven't had time. I guess I'm just sinking into the ingnorant oblivion that most Americans enjoy. So be it.

Yes...its ALL subliminal programing.....
Keep all people in a constant state of FEAR, and they cower and are more easily led. To calm the fears, there are commercials for our enjoyment......Drink THIS or THAT and be happy. Feeling depressed? take this pill.......BUY$$$ stuff you dont need and be happy. ACK! ACK!
Thinking of humanity in the sense of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUNESS .....we can easily be led down whatever emotional road the TV powers that be want to lead us.

15 years ago I decided to shun the newsmedia. I do not read the paper or watch the lastest horrifying event unfold. Now days I get my news from right here on ATS, where I can pick a subject and not just be BOMBARDED by some other newscasters perception. I hate that the corporation run media gets to DECIDE what we are told or not, and what to care about or WHO to fear. Those are things I can decide for myself from my heart.
Its a shame when my son no longer wants the cereal he always has liked, BECAUSE commercials are leading him to believe eating other things make him COOLER, when in fact it just hypes him up on pure sugar.

I was raised by the dang TV set though, and being alone alot it keeps me company. I WISH WISH I had the guts and grit to just toss the dang thing, and no longer allow those energies in my life. EMF's just can't be all that good for a human body. I love the show 'SURVIVOR' though, and stuff on PBS....ya ya and soap operahs. I wish I was TV FREE....instead of just NEWS FREE.
I swear, when you let DRAMA and ANXIETY entertain you every day, what do you think is going to manifest in your life?

An interesting point to note.....though I agree with you theRiverGoddess, ask anyone and I bet that they'll deny feeling anything like it. That is why people don't take this seriously. The programming is designed and/or inherently such that the ideas seem to be your own.

uhh, haven't been here for a while, reality
got me hard
anyway thank you MemoryShock for bringing this topic back


we can talk about fear -this is very demanding emotion - let people know, that there is something to be afraid of and they do anything to get back to their "nome" state.

theRiverGoddessink -thank you for your honest words -if we would be as honest to ourselves maybe we could change our reality


sorry for spelling didn't use english for a while

I get a dead link on that one

Fear is an amazing thing and the responses it illicits are fascinating to study. Images are more powerful than words, a picture tells a thousand stories and a picture to fear will capture within it many emotions that would make a human react in an abrupt qucik way.

everybody know's that the brain is the central processing unit between body & the spirit , my opinion is when the brain is trained good enough & has a good communication with heaven nothing will coz loose his powers with this materialistic psychological games.

Excellent point about lucid dreaming, MemoryShock. When I try to explain lucid dreaming to some people they cringe as if I am telling them how to pull their own teeth. It's funny/tragic to observe.

There are two poles in this world: Fear and Love. Simply put, you can polarize yourself toward one or the other. Fear makes you easier to manipulate but it also makes you sensistive to OTHERS' fear and so therefore able to manipulate THEM. Love, however, removes all fear from a person and seeks no manipulation of others.

I guess my point is that if one is polarized toward love, their subconscious mind won't be affected by this subliminal imagery quite so much. What we make ourselves in waking life is what we become through and through. Either we are creatures of Love or Creatures of Fear.

Thanks smallpeeps. I also get mixed reactions whenever I bring up even dreaming........I don't think it should be that way.......

I have heard and experienced love being used as an excuse for manipulation......arguably that is the manipulation of the term and not an actual feeeling of the emotion, but as a result, I am skeptical of the concept.

I disagree to a point.......the instillation of love as a concept could lead to an acceptance of propaganda that illustrates love so that money is exchanged. Love is a tricky emotion and is subjectively different for everyone. I would promote logic and an overall awareness of ones motivations and desires, as well as the antithemas.

If you mean 'love' as in the relationship-type of feeling, then yes I agree with you. Many relationships are little more than veiled power-struggles. I'm talking about the core frequency of a human. When one approaches new people, one is either guarded (most people are of this group due to fear) or they are open because they have no fear. I'd say those in the latter group are on a frequency of love which places them beyond fear in many ways.

True. For a long time I felt that 'love' should be tossed out because the word leads to so many possible misunderstandings. You are correct to say that it is a trap that people fall into at times, with dire consequences. But then, aren't those people _looking_ for something? I'd describe that type of love as the type that has needs. Any love that has needs in imperfect love, if (I can be allowed to pontificate like that).

In it's truest form, love has no needs but instead radiates itself to fill the needs of others. In a relationship, this is why a person who gives a lot in a relationship will often attract the vampiric-types who feed off that love.

I guess my point could best be described by the examples of the saints. If you are being tortured and you can still feel love and empathy for your torturer, then you are displaying perfect love which transcends any fear or pain on this third-density world. I'm not saying I could do that, but I do see how it would place one beyond fear.

I support all constructive pontifications and that would qualify....not that I percieve my allowances to supersede your own..

With this definition, I feel more comfortable with your assertions because it leaves room for logical incorporations.......Imo, life is not sought out. It justs happens. Many people spend the entirety of their existence "catching up." The fact that we are all here not of our own accord tells me that we all have common ground. Cooperation and looking out for fellow human is a trait that I hold with high esteem. Sadly, there are too many people can't see past their physical impulses.

I do what I can and will continue to do so......all the while never taking my eye off the "flip side."
