I was looking through David Icke's latest book earlier today and found a section concerned with subliminal messages.
It appears that these messages can be included in a host of media as a means to 'program' people to purchase the item in question, or to perform a
particular action - such as not to steal (Certain stores, such as K-Mart
use this form of subliminal
This can be done by including suggestive words and images that are not instantly recognised by the conscious mind but that the subconscious
The 1988 movie They Live
includes the concept of
subliminal messages in the story by John Carpenter.
An economic crisis brings unemployed Nada (Roddy Piper) to L.A. in search of work. What he finds instead is that the ruling elite of the world are
aliens in disguise, their aim being to keep humans in a state of mindless consumerism. His discovery comes when he dons a pair of special sunglasses
made by a resistance group and sees for the first time reality unadorned. Billboards, store signs, magazine covers--all bear subliminal messages to
OBEY, to CONSUME, to have NO INDEPENDENT THOUGHT. Money itself says THIS IS YOUR GOD. But worst of all, with these glasses you see which of us are
really hideous, bug-eyed aliens.
Now if they remade it using reptilians, that would definitely be worth seeing.
Another manner of subliminal messaging uses words that include 'reverse speech'. An advert includes a message which, when played in reverse, has a
subliminal message embedded, which the subconsious mind can translate.
Some speech therapists believe that the true motive of people such as politicians can be determined by listening to their voices in reverse. The
site states that ...
If human speech is recorded and played backwards, mixed amongst the gibberish at regular intervals can be heard very clear statements. These
statements usually appear in short sentence form and are nearly always related to the forward speech. It appears constantly throughout language, so
much so in fact, that it is believed to be a natural part of our speech processes ...
The applications of this discovery are exciting. On the surface level, it can act as a sort of Truth Detector as Reverse Speech will usually correct
the inconsistencies of forward speech. If a lie is spoken forwards, the truth may be communicated in reverse.
I remember hearing this some years ago on Talk Radio (no Talk Sport) in the UK (I think it was on Caesar the Geezer's show before he got the boot for
taking the P out of some politician or other). It was late at night and to hear Col. Gadaffi
speaking of Nuclear Hadj and then the hill
(which I assume meant the hill of Meggido - Armageddon) sent a shiver down my spine
