    The Cloak & Dagger Thesis

    Around this time of year i always seem to find myself in my conspiracy mode. Don't ask why, but i was wondering what you chaps out there think about subliminal messages in advertisements, tv, music etc. i for one think that sometimes it's a possibility and sometimes it's merely a coincidence in observation and perception. I've heard alot of reports and opinions on the subject, so i'd like to add some more to my data pile. Heres a little link just for the hell of it

    So, what do you think?

    Sheesh. Y'know, i can appreciate the whole conspiracy theory thing, but sometimes I think it's blown out of porportion. Then the arguement is, "that's exactly what they want you to think", and so it really makes you wonder sometimes. I can't stand it, because it makes you think to much and in the end the only way to figure it out either way is to ask.

    Subliminal messages are very real, they show up in advertising all the time, though most people think of the messages like playing a record backwards and having say that you should kill yourself. Thats far-fetched what I am talking about, is using the effect of euporia on a person like those beer commercials that use scantly clad women to sell their product, subliminally the commercial wants your brain to make connections to different objects and come to a realization that if I can buy their product then I can get that outcome. This is especially prevalent in men, considering the fact that males tend to associate objects with feelings and emotions. A prouct then becomes a subliminal messenger feeding our brain what we want which tries to make us realize that in order to obtain that feeling we must obtain that prodcut. That type of subliminal messaging is real, the messages about killing yourself are false.

    I say it's terrible because even in movies or tv series that I watch there are publicities that are sometimes not even hidden...

    I have been told that subliminal messages are now illegal in the US because it was being done. In High School I had a class that talked about it. A recording of "Another One Bits the Dust" was played backward and you could clearly hear it say "start to smoke marijuana". Blew our minds. So yes, subliminal messages are real. Are they around us everywhere? Hard to say. Depends on whether the regulations boards are doing their job.

    I've also heard that it's illegal in the USA, but it being subliminal, can it really be stopped? I don't know about those playing records backwards things, but I know from anatomy, we see everything, we just don't consciously perceive everything. Basically, our subconscious perceives it, but we don't. Ex: Say you're playing a video game or watching... anime... Now someone comes up to you and starts talking to you, but you don't hear a word. Was it because you didn't hear the person? Nope. You heard 'em, it's just your brain filtered it out and didn't register it. Same deal with subliminal stuff, I guess. Your brain sees it and subconsciouly realizes something is wrong or off. But yeah, once again, I've been told that it's illegal in the USA, so I really don't think it's that much of a problem... However, I never heard that it was illegal in Japan... Dun dun dun....
