I and many others have heard every so often about subliminal messages starting when I was young. During those times the comments sounded like sci-fi to me. I gave no thought to the effects of subliminal messages. As I approached middle age, I heard a news presentation about a drive-in movie in California had used subliminal message during the mid 50's by flicking images of food on the screen in microseconds which were undetectable to the human eyes. These foods were at their concession stand. Their concession sales doubled using subliminal messages. This caught my ear; although, I didn't follow up with any research. After all, the government had stopped the drive-in from using such selling method; passing a law to stop the usage of such method. But I now suspect the government has social machinery actively using subliminal messages.
I am not sure what the pros and con are relative to the general population or a targeted person.
subliminal messages are having their aqffect upon every creature on this earth.
We are swimming in all kinds of subliminal messages every minute of every day.
Should anyone be suprised that government would discover a few dozen different "NEW" ways to add to the already existing total of millions of subliminal messages, that are created by whatever it is that is around us.
And who invented LSD ?
Guess we call this evolution of government; to see a void and fill it.
Ads world and Politicians use Subliminal messages so often and the General Public is still so ignorent about this.
The majority of people disregard the idea of subliminal messages as paranoia but you just have to have your wits about you and look out for number one
"LSD was first synthesized by Albert Hofmann in 1938 from ergotamine, a chemical derived by Arthur Stoll from ergot, a grain fungus that typically grows on rye."
"Introduced by Sandoz Laboratories, with trade-name Delysid, as a drug with various psychiatric uses in 1947, LSD quickly became a therapeutic agent that appeared to show great promise. In the 1950s the CIA thought it might be applicable to mind control and chemical warfare; the agency's MKULTRA research program propagated the drug among young servicemen and students."
A whole bunch was given to Timothy Leary to do studies at Harvard. I know the guy who his first test experiment. The formula was discovered by a chemist named Owsley in a library maybe Berkley dont remember. He developed it, the first called maybe 'Window Pane' distributed in Haight Ashbury. Theory is the CIA eventually took over distribution for purposes antithetical to the mass movements of the time.
Verry good answer and thank you or the information. I used to know most of that.
I took it a couple of times back in 1969. It skeared me Soooo much (Cause I liked it Soooo much) that I never took it again.
The sixties was a time that the world made another turn.
Only took acid a few times. Reminds me of the time I was out at a beach and a friend and I took some. I decided to climb a rock wall cliff. About half way up my hands went numb - no feeling. I had to climb the rest of the way using sight only, watching my hands closing on the grip. Interesting experience on what is taken for granted.

Do you think subliminal tv commercials should be made illegal?It seems some fast food companies have been including subliminal messages in their ads. Should it be made illegal to do so? Why is it ok for them to mess with our mind?

I do surveys and know there are subliminal messages in advertising. How good they are I don’t know, but they are trying. I hadn’t known them to be in the ads themselves, but am sure they are imbedded into the programming and movies we watch. How? Because I will get surveys that include a video...
