I was SO thrilled to find a new book by Stephen King while randomly browsing for first signed editions. I immediately purchased it and I must say, after reading it, I was in awe. While I’ve never been fond of the Detective Hodges series, I love the short stories and the big books that Mr. King produces for his Constant Readers.
There are some books by Dean Koontz which are well researched and well ahead of their time when published. Even in the Author’s note, there is an entire section dedicated to why “Night Chills” is not just another novel.
Once entertained, however, they will be tempted to dismiss Night Chills as quickly as they might a novel about demonic possession or reincarnation. Although this story is intended primarily to be a “good read,” I cannot stress strongly enough that the basic subject matter is more than merely a fantasy of mine; it is a reality and already a major influence on all our lives.
Based strongly on research regarding Subliminal Messaging and Advertising modes in the 21st century, “Night Chills” takes the premise of a mad scientist developing a drug that can allow people to be hypnotized easily and controlled via very succinct messages.
Subliminal message are being bombarded at you continuously thoughout the day, though books, magazines, television and music.
Those who are most effective at using subliminal messages would like to quickly dismiss the idea as ludicrous, laughable, and completely ineffective. The truth of the matter could not be further away.
Subliminal messages are effective! Their effect increases with increased exposure time. Surely one would not die of cancer from one cigarette, but a lifetime of smoking may elicit cancer! Likewise, having seen a subliminally embedded poster will not likely produce insanity, but a lifetimes worth may drastically alter conscious descision making.
SUBLIMINAL MESSAGE DEFINED
Subliminal messages are a by-product of hypnosis, and are indeed a form of hypnotic induction. Psychological researchers developed a technique for bypassing the conscious mind and embedding a message upon the subconscious mind. There are a number of ways to embed a subliminal message:
- sub-audible background sounds
- backwards masking
- tachiscopic displays
Sub-audible background sounds: every national store (JC Pennies, Vons, the Gap, Mc Donalds, Denny’s) uses subaudiable background sounds in the recorded music played in the store. Allegedly this is done to deture theft, but the actual plan is much more insidious. Often a
monotonic, rhythmic voice will repeat the words “OBEY”, “BUY MORE”, “SPEND AND SAVE”, “SLEEP”, “WE ARE WATCHING YOU” or something similar over and over again at a very low sound level. What this does is elicit the urge to comply with commercial programming (and why not, all the models in the ad look happy) and consume.
The commands words “SLEEP” and “OBEY” are geared directly at the subconscious mind. The idea here is to “turn off” the subconscious mind’s reporting mechanisms. The subconscious mind is unable to do anything other than produce emotions: “SLEEP” and “OBEY” prohibit the subconscious from reporting (producing a feeling like – something’s wrong here) of any misdeed.
The idea behind subliminal programming is not so much to manipulate the conscious perception, but rather stimulate feelings. For example, recall having thought about or actually shoplifting an item from a store. Did you feel afraid? Did you feel as if you were being watched?
Recall what these folks are playing at a sub-audible sound level: “WE ARE WATCHING YOU…” This type of manipulation is aimed at the
subconscious mind – where feelings are produced. Subliminal stimuli are not direct attacks upon conscious thought; they produce emotions – fear, hate, love, and so on.
Embedding: In early forms of embedding (1950s to late 1970s), an artist would lightly print words in the background of pictures that were
to be printed. Nowadays computers do this rapidly and automatically. To illustrate, image dragging a pencil on a piece of paper while pressing only slightly. The result would be barely visible to the eye. Now do this and write very lightly the words SLEEP, SEX, OBEY or whatever you like. If you have written the words lightly enough, you could then hand the paper to a friend, and your friend likely would never notice. This is exactly how embedding was originally done. These days, computers and high quality printers can (and do) produce a background mosaic of the words SLEEP, OBEY, SEX, GAY and so on.
Every newspaper, every children’s book, every magazine has the words SLEEP, OBEY and SEX embedded in the background of pictures. SLEEP and OBEY are directed the subconscious mind. Ordinarily, the subconscious mind would produce a feeling (the subconscious mind is not capable of rational decision making) telling the viewer, “Something is awry here.” The command SLEEP and OBEY weakens the mind’s ability to alert the viewer to the embedded command.
Embedding is by far the most common type of subliminal message, and is present in every piece of printed material in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and other more developed nations of the world.
Backwards masking: Backwards masking can be done with printed material and sound recordings. The words LISTEN AND OBEY can be
recorded and then played, not necessarily at normal speed, in the reverse direction. Likewise, the word sex would become XES.
Under hypnosis, patients have exhibited the ability to read from mirror images, upside-down, and a mix of rightside up, upside-down, and
mirror images at a normal reading rate. From this, researchers have gathered that the subconscious mind works at nearly 100 times as fast as the conscious mind. Remember the old saying, “You only use 10% of your mind.” Well, the mass media is trying their best to use the other 90% – and their intention is evil!
On a legal note, many of you may recall the recent Judas Priest trial. The defendants were found innocent. This is because of reasonable doubt, that is, much of what the researchers uncovered could have been (blank). And you fill in the blank! The words were obviously there, however once mixed with music and lyrics the original message (“KILL SELF” etc…) became *consciously* difficult to understand.
Research has shown, time and again, that regardless of mixing, backwards masking is, over time, effective!
I have a degree in electrical engineering. Motocross for fun, so on. I am by no means a member of a neo-nazi party movement, KKK, or any other such group.
As I studied subliminal messages more, the reasoning became clear. With increasing exposure time, subliminal stimuli becomes ever more
effective. The goal of these mind manipulators became clear: by manipulating the subconscious mind of every person, the mind manipulators in tends to lull us into an altered state of consciousness, have us equate material possessions to sexual gratification, greatly reduce birth rates, and promote homosexuality. Homosexuality is of course the most effective means of birth control (population reduction).
For those of you with background in psychology, you will note that their exists no experimental data for long term subliminal exposure.
Even if such data were available, the study would be entirely falsified by the power structure that exists in this country.
HOW SUBLIMINAL MATERIAL WORKS
In printed material such as magazines and newpapers, the words SEX, SLEEP, OBEY, GAY, KILL, KILL SELF, FUCK, FEAR, SUCK COCK, SUCK DICK, and so on are embedded (lighly written) in the background of ads and pictures. The word SEX is omnipresent, and occurs as a mosaic several thousand times on the average page. SEX is usually written much like a person would write the word with a pen – thin lines. SLEEP and GAY are also ubiquitous. However, GAY and SLEEP are generally written much larger than SEX and have a cloud like (puffy font) appearance.
KILL, PAIN, and FEAR are usually reserved for children and hostile political leaders. Most every child you see in print (Time Magazine,
Vogue, Your Daily Paper, etc) has the word KILL embedded across his or her forehead. The idea behind this is quite clear: associate death
with children. Now try to follow me on this one folks. Have you ever heard a young person saying something like, “Death before marriage?” or “A kid — never!”
To digress briefly, the birth rate in the US has gone from 3.9 children per female in 1950 to 1.2 children per female in 1990. Note subliminal programming was not used largely until the mid-1950s. Do you people get it? We are breeding ourselves into extinction! In forty years, our birth rate has more than halved. By subliminally equating children with KILL, PAIN, and FEAR the mind manipulators have eradicated a
large number of us — prenatally!
You might ask, then, why embedded SEX? Doesn’t this promote sexual activity? My answer is yes! Mental sex. By embedding the word SEX on a new car, the advertising man has successfully equated the purchasing (and driving, viewing, washing, etc) of a car to sexual activity! Want sexual gratification – buy an new car! The embedded ad slips by the conscious defenses and over time perverts and mutates the sexual drive.
Many authors omit symbology from the subliminal discussion, but often times what is not said is more important than what is said. Have
you not walked down the road and noticed the faces of people. One can easily see anger, joy apprehension and so on in the faces of passer-bys.
What about that lovely girl “doing” the hair spray ad. Pay close attention next time. See at what part of her anatomy she aims her phallicly (penis) shaped bottle of spray. See how she gently shakes her bottle of spray – symbolically masturbating the container of spray, and when
all the hairs are just right, she releases the contents in a mist on her head (the symbollic big-O!).
How about the TV show “Marrier with Children?” Why wouldn’t you just love to get a wife and a couple of kids after watching Al’s misery?
How about Kelly? Now there’s a role for the “Master Race.” Pure, bright and intelligent? Or dumb, slut blonde? Here’s one for you
“Master Race” types. Next time you view “Married with Children” keep those birth rates in mind: 3.9 per woman in the 1950s, 1.2 in the 1990s. Note: the TV was not in most homes until the mid-to-late 1950s. The mind manipulators have tricked you into not breeding! Through cleaver psychology, symbology, and subliminal stimuli the mind manipulators will soon have your birth rate at zero per female, or simply extinct! Excluding immigration, the population of the United States is no the decline!
THE AD MEN LAUGHINGLY CALL THE “BABY BOOMERS” BABY BOOMERS. THEY ARE THE LAST REPRODUCTIVE GENERATION!!!
The mind manipulators and many of their victims will deny any use of subliminal stimuli. A very popular author, Wilson Bryan Key, in the early 1970s unveiled the subliminal stimuli issue, and its copious use by the media. His books (listed below) come with illustrations, showing how subliminal messages are embedded in ads!
Oddly, a few Hollywood (I call it Holy-wood) movies deal with the subliminal stimuli issue: _They Live_ and the much more difficult to
find _Agency_. The latter of the two is truly interesting.
