[edit: This is just a recap of stuff I've read, I'm just throwing it out for consumption and to see others thoughts. Not that I know it's 100% true
or whatnot. Like my handle says, I'm a seeker of knowledge. Thanks for your time]
There's manipulation in the media outlets(not just TV) to be sure.
From what I'be gathered, the longer you are involved in certain "non interactive" tasks, that is tasks that really do not require your full
attention, concentration or for you to put effort into it; you attain a point which is oft referred to as "synthesis" where your sub conscious is
dominating your overall perception of reality.
At any time of "synthesis" you are like a computer that's just sitting there for the most part cycling waiting for data to process. I mean sure
critical functions and involuntary systems of the body keep running, but other than that you're just sitting there letting this "supercomputer" go
to waste, and so it is open to any stimuli it can find.
The government and ad agencies know of this as well, and they make a point of constantly testing new methods of inputting information of value to them
that A. Successfully enters your mind and processes without fragmentation and B. It is retained in your memory without high possibility of accidental
or involuntary "purging".
There are many methods used to achieve this goal, and there are frequency pitches that aid them slightly. The most successful messaging to enter our
brains is via either info that is presented in a sexual nature of one sort or another, or via patterns, sounds, and motions that can attract our
interest in a semi short period of time. I say semi-short as our brains "refresh rate" is so so very fast that really they could get multiple images
through in the avg time of a single implantation, the normally do not however, as that can lead to their dreaded "fragmentation"(see above).
If one really would like to research this, you'll notice that this is not merely a domain that is ruled by ad agencies hoping to make you purchase
the latest widget. In fact the government buys "spots" in television programming (news broadcasts, sitcoms, children's shows, talk shows, dramas,
movies etc) to get a stated ideal "endorsed" by your favorite show's actors. Now this varies from your average "always wear a seatbelt" to the
"don't drink underage" etc... But they also do "implanting" that can only be described as "psyops", wherein you get fast "coding" to instill
an ideal "patriotism" or a sensory perception "fear" or "outrage" etc ... you should be getting the idea by now.
I'd imagine the next thing to ask would be "Is there anyway to combat such things?" And while I can say there are ways to still go about watching
t.v. like you do now with a few tips to avoid "synthesis", I want to make it clear that the only way to be sure you combat such actions is to *not
watch television, and not use radio as a "background device" (such as while driving, or cleaning house etc* As I know most find the above to be
"loony" or what have you, I will say that you can do the following things while watching t.v. or radio in order to combat most covert messaging:
Truly try to engage another in a conversation that keeps your mind working and involved in the "here and now", drifting off to the "synthesis
daze" is your enemy...
Get up and walk around from the TV constantly. Yes you really should every 15mins or so, a good way is to make a point of getting up, muting the TV or
whatever and walk into another room during the commercial breaks. This step alone will put you a step ahead of most.
Watch in small doses, as it's the prolonged exposure that really lets your mind "wind down" and just sit there open to what-have-you.
Well that's just my $0.02 on the whole thing. Good luck to ya on it, whatever you choose!
