Well metaprogramming is used by CNBC to sell stocks. You know the terms. Glass half full, green shoots, money on the sidelines (will come in to push the market up, NOT), goldilocks economy. You know, the BS from kudlow, Erin Burnett and the rest.
Anything that involves learning, or manipulating the subconscious through repetition is hypnosis.
It reminds me of an advertising practice that was occasionally used in the late fifties, but subsequently banned.
I believe it involved flashing one frame every few seconds, of an image intended to make you hungry (if it was a food advertisement), or an image to give you a headache (if it was for a pain reliever). Stuff like that.

(Actually, there probably is - the brainwashing effect of advertising on my son. He is definitely caught in the trap!)

I've just started going through some hubs re the new Editbot when I noticed a change which:1) I don't like - they appear to be part of my text rather than adverts - and I don't like people being misled about what's my writing and what is business advertising. That suggests I endorse the link - and...
