his whole class was taken from their studies for the last 2 hours of the day for a few weeks, and the teacher very seriously belabored the point that the program they would be sent to was not in any way affiliated with the school and he had no idea what it was about.
What followed on the computers would be a series of "monotone sounds at strange intervals" and a series of "shapes and colors". He did not explain if or how he was expected to interact with them, but he said it had a very strange effect on his mood that wasn't quite boredom or drowsiness, but similar, and that he had "never felt so controlled".
His theory was that the program was designed to pick out programmable people.

I can't say that I remember anything wierd about my public education experience. The only thing about schools I find disconcerting is the idea of "Guidance Counselors." Basically, I think they are a government plot that reveal a student's weaknesses or strengths for some purpose.
Now it would be really imteresting to know what it was for? Was ittofind out who is receptable?
Was it inducing comands? What commands?....
Then getting to the point, he says that he has been seeing more and more things in cartoons recently that remind him of that experience, and he wonders if it's some kind of a trigger mechanism. My counter-theory was that he was the subject of an experiment on attention, the results of which might now be in use to make television more conducive to a receptive state that makes advertising more effective.
