would be something I would indeed remember.

I suppose I'll re-watch it and check over the weekend.

It turns out he does mention them and shows a longer clip of that same shroom late in the film. The context is that when we develop 'new technologies'we sometimes are forced to change our old bad habits, like whayt nukes did for waging war. It turns out that nukes just made war more of a sneaky covert ordeal between the imperial powers that possess them ala Cold War global domination of third world countries by both imperial superpowers.

Anyways, 'subliminals' are of little effect if the image is unfamiliar to the viewer. It's pointless to flash new logos at people really, but if the image is encoded into the physical structure of the brain, as are all memories, then viewing the image activates the regions and emotions of the brain associated with said image. The longer you see the image the more powerful its effect. This is why "leaders" always have flags hanging all behind them to activate ones "patriotic" thought-patterns / mindsets.

Al's use of that imagery is highly questionable. If you've read his "Assault on Reason" it becomes glaringly obvious he's welll learned in the propaganda arts, and like the disinfo I pointed out I see no excuses for this sort of propagation as being unwitting.

One simple way is to place a blank, black frame every 32 frames in the film that is being projected. This creates a 45-beat-per-minute pulsation perceived only by the subconscious mind--the ideal pace to generate deep hypnosis.

The commercials or suggestions presented following this alpha-inducing broadcast are much more likely to be accepted by the viewer. The high percentage of the viewing audience that has somnambulistic-depth ability could very well accept the suggestions as commands--as long as those commands did not ask the viewer to do something contrary to his morals, religion, or self-preservation.

I got this from an old text file I got a long time ago.

Al Gore DOES mention nuclear weapons in his presentation.

and i would consider nuclear testing and employment of nuclear weapons to be abit of an environmental threat, wouldnt you?

I never said he didn't. I couldn't find AIT on Google Video from where I was at work, and was working intense hours getting ready to go out of town.

It sure was convenient for him to throw into his highly dramatic trailer was it? It wasn't out of context was it?

Alright so I finally reviewed the trailer in Sony Vegas and the clip is 6 frames in length. Perfect execution during the most dramatic part of the trailer, and one single frame would have little cognitive effect. Since the context of the trailer is nothing but Global Warming, and it's assumed that the viewer hasn't yet seen the film, while the nuke image is flashed briefly enough to barely notice it but long enough for cognitive effect, this is fearmongering at its finest, in our Culture of Fear.

Lots of good idea's, that seem to closely correlate Michael Crichton's "State of Fear"
nevertheless, valid points.
Great read.

All my old links and stuff are down.

Pretty ironic since he claims to be against the politics of fear:

Our Founders had a healthy respect for the threat fear poses to reason. They knew that, under the right circumstances, fear can trigger the temptation to surrender freedom to a demagogue promising strength and security in return. They worried that when fear displaces reason, the result is often irrational hatred and division. As Justice Louis D. Brandeis later wrote: “Men feared witches and burnt women.” -Al Gore, The Assault on Reason
