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.
Just look up 'subliminal advertising'. The implications are a bit scary, as you can imagine.
If there's one thing I hate it is TV commercials - I never ever watch them, not even when they interrupt my viewing. In fact, I could barely tell you a single thing about any of them - instead I turn to my computer, make a cup of tea or just daydream! Or, since I record most of my programmes to watch when no children are still up, I fastforward through them. No hypnotising in my house! (Actually, there probably is - the brainwashing effect of advertising on my son. He is definitely caught in the trap!)
