Your Mind. Controlled
A general sense of apathy is spreading through the populace like a cancer and it begs the question: even if we wanted to “wake up,” could we?
According to last year’s Nielsen report, the average American over the age of two years old watches more than 34 hours of television per week, plus at least three more hours of taped programming. The report also noted that the amount of time we spend watching television increases as we get older.
Back in 1969, a man named Herbert Krugman conducted a series of experiments regarding the effect of television on a person’s brainwaves. What he found was pretty startling:
‘Beta’ is considered a normal, awake state, while ‘Alpha’ waves are experienced in a deep relaxation or ‘daydreaming’ state. When in the Alpha state, a person is subjected to a passive learning experience with the right side of the brain at the wheel, leaving critical thinking skills behind.
Type ‘television’ and ‘low vibrational energy’ into a search engine, and it’ll quickly return the fact that watching a lot of TV is like undressing your mind and submerging it into a bath of negative energy. TV effectively numbs the left side of your brain and renders you helpless to your right brain which is incapable of decoding and critically analyzing the information being presented to you. Essentially, you go on ‘auto-pilot’.
TV programs us. We tune in, drop out and stop asking questions.
Some of Krugman’s more interesting conclusions from his 1969 TV brainwave research include:
Your brain on TV, ladies and gentlemen. It’s a basic form of mind control.
The bulk of Krugman’s research sounds eerily reminiscent of the concept of ‘sleep-learning’ (also known as sleep-teaching or hypnopaedia) — literally teaching someone something as they sleep — as portrayed in Aldous Huxley’s 1932 novel Brave New World.
Interestingly, two scientists were able to debunk sleep-learning on its face in 1956, unless Alpha waves were involved:
It should be noted that Krugman has spent many decades at General Electric (GE) headquarters as corporate manager of public-opinion research, a job he took in 1967. The company had a few good reasons to get excited by Krugman’s findings. After all, GE founded the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) in 1919, and a few years later RCA would found the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) in 1926. GE also bought a majority share of Universal Pictures in 2004.
GE also has extensive ties to the military-industrial complex, resulting in propaganda campaigns straight from it’s child company NBC. Here’s just one example:
In other words, there’s a very lucrative reason to sell war to the masses… and war, by far, is not the only thing the TV sells us.
Krugman also wrote “The Impact of Television Advertising: Learning without Involvement,” in which he stated that people exposed to what they have seen on television never forget these images:
So once you have experienced something on television, your brain is effectively desensitized to it and you remember what you have seen forever.
Seems rife for abuse by anyone who desires to peddle propaganda, doesn’t it?
Nothing about what I have written makes me feel anymore comfortable about the fact that our government spent billions subsidizing the switchover from analog to digital broadcasting, a move that was meant to take full effect across the nation in 2009. (The United Kingdom followed suit in 2010, and so did Canada in 2011.)
You know, because the government that is wholesale spying on us through the National Security Administration and other alphabet organizations cares so much about our television’s picture quality.
This is, after all, the same government who designed a despicable covert mind control research program called MKUltra that began after World War II which the Central Intelligence Agency admitted to on record but claims to have stopped in 1973. The program dealt in trauma-based mind control (The ‘MK’ stands for ‘mind kontrolle’ in German).
Krugman wrote yet another article in 2000, “Memory Without Recall, Exposure Without Perception” where he posited:
Some people cannot seem to break their trance, break their programming. They readily believe whatever the mainstream media tells them — a media beholden to the establishment agenda — without critical analysis and act accordingly. The breakdown appears to go beyond economic or political factors, but something effecting the very fabric of society itself.
Others have ‘broken their programming’, realized something is very very wrong here, and are asking questions. Think about what’s going on in our country today and ask yourself: “What the hell happened?”
