'subliminal' (according to yourdictionary.com)
- Below the threshold of conscious
perception. Used of stimuli.
- Inadequate to produce conscious
awareness but able to evoke a response: subliminal
There are a number of ways in
which we could have compiled this archive.
In the end, we have decided
to build up a kind of dossier and research resource center of relevant
information pertaining to the use and abuse of subliminal imagery (in
whatever form it comes).
|We have the classic
themes that everybody is used to such as 'sexual subliminals'.
This is so commonly used
throughout advertising that it is almost cliché - take for example
the front cover of the UK 'SFX' (or 'SEX' magazine as
I tend to call it).
What a great way of attracting
potential buyers to your product!. As you casually browse the
news stand, your eyes are drawn to the word 'sex'... oh no its just
SFX and the letter 'F' is appropriately (on almost every issue I
see) obscured by the front page feature.
As if having Jennifer Garner
semi-naked on the cover isn't bad enough!.
Right, have I got your

they have all used it.
One that we have seen a
lot in recent times is the 'wartime' tactic, in which the manipulator
can give the message that 'the troops are behind (whoever)', by
placing the troops, literally behind the appropriate candidate as they
are making a speech.
In this case its Tony's
turn, but we have seen this used in several countries as a way of
conveying the message "Be a patriot, support the troops,
support the leader".

cover of Al Gores 'falling sky' propaganda style film An
Inconvenient Truth (seen right) uses the subliminal image of 9/11
(i.e. two smoking towers) in order to manipulate the glancing persons
concept of the message of the film.
Again this is done for
propaganda purposes, related to the content of the global tax / New
World Order promoting film.
Sometimes the tactics are
complex... in other cases all you have to do is look at the example from
another angle - either metaphorically, or as we see here, literally: -

10 Disturbing Trends in Subliminal Advertising -
Subliminal advertising has gone mainstream - fake news, mind control scripts, propaganda and stealth voicemail are in wide use by corporations, government bodies and industry groups.
Subliminal advertising may work after all -
IT WAS a stunt that launched a thousand conspiracy theories. Market researcher James Vicary claimed in 1957 that he could get movie-goers to "drink Coca-Cola" and "eat popcorn" by flashing those messages on the screen for such a short time that viewers were unaware of it. People were outraged, and the
practice was banned in the UK, Australia and the US. Vicary later admitted that his study was fabricated, and scientists through the years who have tried to replicate it have largely failed. But now researchers have shown that if the conditions are right, subliminal advertising to promote a brand can be made to work.
Subliminal Persuasion -
Subliminal means below the level of the conscious mind. The brain perceives the information in theory, but the mind does not interpret the information for meaning. A lot of studies indicate that we do perceive information at the subliminal level. A good example is how often do you notice when your speedometer is about to roll over to a bunch of zeroes.
WORLD - Coke, Fanta, Pepsi, Dr Pepper and the contemporary use of subliminal and manipulative labelling of soft drinks.
'Subliminal message': From
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - A subliminal message is a signal or message embedded in another object, designed to pass below the normal limits of perception. These messages are indiscnernible to the conscious mind, but are alleged to be perceptible to the subconscious or deeper mind: for example, an image transmitted so briefly that it is only perceived subconsciously, but not otherwise noticed. Subliminal techniques have occasieonally been used in advertising and propaganda; the purpose, effectiveness and frequency of such techniques is debated.
