Right? I didn't get it (still don't for the most part) but 'out of the blue' it says "Note Relax It"
On top of that "Textelation" doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me either? I know subliminal messages can be debunked to an extent - as for my
personal opinion I believe that they certainly DO work and they certainly do affect us... but I hadn't until recently (until, actually, I saw these
Koodo commercials that they've been playing for a while now...) thought about 'subliminal' messages hiding in plain sight for all to see. I want to
understand these latest market trends, because I think it's grotesque that these advertising executives would toy with the minds of the masses in
such perverted ways. It really sickens me that they would be telling the consumer "to relax" when buying into these potential scams (and don't try
and argue that half these commercials aren't just scams cause they are!)
so tell me... what do you think? Is it possible that there is a new wave of advertising that promotes the superliminal over the subliminal?
Textelation isn't either...but judging on the
Google Search, it seems to be one of those
industry terms that make an attempt to catch on every now and again...which makes sense because it is an ad for a texting package.
Embedding the youtube for ease of reference:
After seeing the video, I think that the supraliminal aspect maybe just a reference to the fact that they are using anagrams. There is a well known
phenomena that dyslexia is kind of based on where it doesn't matter how the letters are spelled because the mind can rearrange the lettering and read
it as if it were spelled correctly...
Here is an [unsigned] article which is making the e-mail circuit. It tries to prove that all of us read with a whole word approach.

So perhaps the anagram usage at the beginning of the advert, leading up to the word textelation, is an attempt to confuse the mind...which leads to a
more conscious interest in the advertisement...which subsequently reinforces the punchline that becomes the letters spelled as "Textelation".
As well, the music in the ad tends to engross the mind as well as the fast forwarding of people (there is also a train of thought that creates
interest when people see people intermingling within a group and at faster than normal frame rate there is going to be an attempt by the mind to make
sense of the seeming randomness of the interminglings...which makes me want to progress the advertisement at a very slow framerate to see if there is
any pattern as to the letters that are shown at "random" between each 'anagram'.
Interesting stuff. And yeah...the Advertising Industry has a ton of information regarding mental influence than we do. But I think in this sense,
and I could be wrong, is that Supraliminal is actually an increased amount of conscious stimulii that can't be assimilated all at once, whereas
subliminal is below conscious perception.
A few threads I have participated in on the subject of subliminal messages and the Advertising Industry...
Wow! Thanks for the tremendous insight. I was wondering why I couldn't find superliminal on google... so it's SUPRAliminal, huh? A star for your
efforts... thank you very much (also thanks for embedding)
if you find any more information regarding the subject, please do let us know...create a seperate topic if you have to just keep us updated!!
Thanks for the example of the email with the letters of the words transposed. I tried to see how fast I could read it and I was amazed to find that I
was reading at normal speed! However, I'm a little puzzled, does this indicate that learning words phonetically is a waste of time? If "W-AST-E"
can be evaluated by the mind when presented as "WSTAE"? Or are we saying that there is pattern-matching and a context-evaluation exercise going on
in the mind when reading?
"the fnilee sat on the mat" - pattern match 6 letter words which start with "f" and end with "e", plus, in this context, what traditionally is
said to "sit on the mat"?
Very interesting thread and ideas. I've never thought about it this way before.
Maybe people are so softened up by various influences -- chemical, intellectual, emotional, maybe even electromagnetic -- that they are wandering
around in a semi-hypnotic trance already and there is no need to hide the messages as subtly as before. Sometimes it certainly seems like most of the
people you meet are in some kind of hypnogogic state...some people seem so spaced-out its a wonder they can even tye their shoes let alone function in
the day-to-day world.
