Mind Control is an ambiguous phrase. An objective person will understand that there is little credence to the idea that a general formula could be
used to 'control' the thought process and subsequent behaviours of people with various personality inclinations, interests, economic(and some would
argue social along with economic) standing, political affiliations and various other different attentions that define the complexity of human
But what of the Advertising Industry?
They collectively control the, through a cumulative aggregation of 'ten-fifteen second' interactions that we as a population interact with on a
The comedic punchline to a cell phone commercial. The use of celebrity to hawk a shoe line. The institution of fear when imploring civic duty
(Piracy is a favorite and current example). The catchy jingle that sifts back into our consciousness a day or two after we have heard it.
Advertising is proof
that someone is getting paid to make an attempt at insuring a likely behaviour in response to an interaction with a
third party source (print, visual, audio, digital media).
A conspiracy site like ATS needs to start at the fundamentals. And that means taking a look at the various day to day interactions(human and
'inanamite' alike) and reverse engineering the cause for those expressions and the reasoning for the decision to make, for instance, red the most
used color in road side signage.
We as a website, concerned with conspiracy, should be well focused on what the advertising industry is doing.
Sequent, BSU Launch Media Behavior Institute

In what may be an industry first, a leading research and consulting group has teamed up with a renowned American university to launch a new
privately-held media research company that will utilize state-of-the-art methods to track consumer media behavior. *Snip*
During his presentation, Bloxham said the institute's goal was a pragmatic understand of how people use media and how it affects their
behavior, and that it would employ and embrace a wide variety of methodologies to do that in a way that would "scale" and be cost efficient for
Bloxham is talking to industry professionals in this regard. Not the population.
In fact, if we were to actually take a concerted interest in what they are discussing these days, the impact of their subtle manipulations would
become diluted and potentially ineffective.
This thread is designed to hash out our day to day conscious encounters with established presentations that effect our mood and potentially our
'Google' Advertising research, or Madison Avenue Presentations.
I guarantee that you will find many examples of people who are getting paid
to 'remotely' influence our thoughts and our behaviour.
As well, I would like to discuss our reactions to this imposition of a 'fifteen second' society and what we can do, for ourselves, to remind
ourselves to focus on what is important to our respective lives...as opposed to their bottom line.
If they are scheduling presentations Ad Nauseam regarding how we will react, I think that we should have our own pro longed presentation regarding how
we want to react and how we can objectively
react to their attempts at subtle manipulation.
Let's talk about them and decide that purified water is preferable to a freaking soft drink...or something along those lines...
