Subliminal Messages: Digital Nanoseconds bits of Info Personalized

    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.

    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

      It is my understanding that our governments research teams came up with it  ....   and leaked out a test run ...  and it kept running.    or a while

    "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.[8] 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.

      Each time I took it, I spent the night with my Child bride.


         Oh yea I remember now !   I was a child too.


          Any way !    I climbed a different mountain but most likely saw the same sky.
