A Primer on Subliminals
By Anthony ForwoodNOTE: This document was originally written as part of a self-development seriesthat I wrote for an unpublished book, so it was written in a positive light.However, in the spirit of informing Targeted Individuals of covert mind-controltechnologies, I feel that it offers some very useful information. TIs need to beaware that ALL audio and video (including your computers and cell phones!) aresusceptible to being used for implanting subliminal messages. Be careful of those podcasts and YouTube videoas!
Introduction
The word ‘subliminal’ can be defined as ‘below the perceptible awareness of consciousness’. Our brains have developed in such a way that most of theinformation we constantly receive through our five senses is processed quicklyand automatically at an unconscious level, below our awareness. These brainfunctions are referred to as the preconscious processes. They are not hinderedby the higher brain functions used in conscious thought (which stem from theneocortex), which can check certain automatic responses to stimuli and eitherallow them or inhibit them before they’re carried out.The subconscious mind is concerned only with carrying out whateverinstructions are given to it, while the higher consciousness of normal wakingawareness is concerned with analyzing information and putting it into acontextual form that is based on our established beliefs and expectations.Because of the analytical nature of waking consciousness, it can easily defeatany messages given to it if we allow ourselves to analyze these messages toomuch. Even if the message is something that we
want 
to believe, any contrarybeliefs we might already hold will cause us doubt, effectively nullifying anyotherwise beneficial results of the message.Subliminal messages are designed to reach the brain’s preconscious processeswithout coming to the attention of our conscious awareness. By doing so, theyavoid the ability for any critical analysis of the message that might negate theinstructions given in it. Thinking about what the message says, even for amoment, can adulterate it with doubts, fears, and other nullifying concerns.Although subliminal programming of our brains can be used against our bestinterests, such as their use in advertising to increase our potential for buyingcertain products, they can just as easily be used to help us, as is evidenced by
 
the positive results of using them to reduce shoplifting in department stores.They have been successfully used to help people stop smoking, lose weight,increase memory, beat insomnia, improve health, raise confidence, andinnumerable other applications that benefit the user.A subliminal message that is delivered in a manner that will be most receptiveand acceptable to a person is more powerful than one that is deliveredforcefully. For instance, a gentle and soothing voice or a pleasing and aestheticimage will have a greater effect than a harsh and dominating voice or adisturbing and chaotic image. Even though such a difference might seeminconsequential due to the absence of conscious analysis to differentiatebetween the two extremes, the preconscious processes are deeply rooted intoour primal functions, and these functions are strongly based on signals thatreflect emotional content. A disturbing voice or image will cause thepreconscious processes to automatically categorize it as a potential threat, andthe natural reaction will be to alert conscious awareness to the fact thatsomething is wrong. However, since conscious awareness doesn’t know aboutthe message, a person will only perceive a certain level of unaccountabletension or uneasiness, without being able to discern what is causing it. This canupset the entire physiological system, and this will interfere with the desiredeffect of the message (unless, of course, the intention of the subliminal is toupset and interfere with a person’s physiological state).Emotions are a mid-brain function, and have some effect over the preconsciousprocesses. They arise as part of these processes, and it’s only because of thehigher brain functions that we can normally check them and either respond tothem or inhibit our natural reaction. If an emotional message is delivered to thebrain subliminally, our normal ability to check our emotions is defeated. Amessage that contains the right emotional content can cause us to be receptiveto it. Because of this, appealing to the emotions has a great effect on the powerof a subliminal message.
Methods of Delivery
Subliminal messages can be delivered in both visual and auditory formats, whichcorrespond to the two predominant senses we use in acquiring and relatinginformation. Although both methods work equally well, auditory subliminals areable to contain more information of a more precise nature than visualsubliminals can.Visual subliminals are projected at the target in one of two basic ways:
Slide insertion
involves flashing a subliminal message or image on ascreen while another presentation is being shown. Due to the limited
 
speed of receptivity of our visual awareness, we are only able to perceivean image that lasts longer than about 1/20
th
of a second. Television andmovie film was designed based on this fact, and project still frames ontothe screen at about 20-25 per second – fast enough to create the illusionof fluid motion. A subliminal message, projected on a screen once everysecond for 1/20
th
of a second or less, will not be consciously perceived,but will be picked up by the preconscious processes.
Candlepower ratios
involve using a lower light output to project themessage than is otherwise used to illuminate the screen it is projected on.For instance, a movie being projected on a screen at 10,000 candlepowerwill mask a subliminal image being simultaneously projected at 5,000candlepower.An image can be encoded into a second image, and the encoded image will besubliminally received by anyone that views the second ‘cover’ image. This coverimage is the only one of the two that is consciously visible, but the subconsciousis nonetheless cognizant of the hidden image as well.Of course, the effects of such subliminal input is not very dramatic with a singleshort-term exposure, but with more continuous and longer-term exposure thereis a definite effect. For instance, if the image of an old friend you haven’t seenor thought of is subliminally projected at you for five seconds during yournormal activity on a computer, you may or may not have any consciousthoughts about the person. If, however, the subliminal image is continuouslyprojected at you on your computer screen for an entire afternoon, it is veryprobable that the friend will eventually arise in your conscious thoughts.In understanding how the subconscious functions, it is easy to see how and whythis works. Normally, the conscious mind is able to intercept and make the finaldecision about how the stimuli it receives is to be responded to. By avoidingconscious recognition of the hidden image, while still keeping it in an otherwiserecognizable state at the level of the preconscious processes, the image isimpressed upon the subconscious directly. The subconscious will always respondin ways that resonate with whatever is impressed upon it. In the example of animage of an old friend, this will trigger associative memories as thesubconscious responds to it.Audio subliminals can be projected in a number of ways, including the following:
Psychoacoustical concealment
has a number of methods, such asharmonizing the voice frequency of the subliminal message with theprimary sound output that it overlays. With this method, the voice can bemade to sound like a musical instrument, trickling water, a gentle wind, orany other background noise that is audible to the listener.

this is done to me almost every waking moment. living with family that makes constant references to being crazy, paranoid, bad lady, should just die. I'm stuck and waiting to find a way out. -Sandy
