Topic: the effects of television

Other threads are discussing TV at the moment, so here I'm starting a parallel thread concerning the physical, psychological, and electromagnetic effects TV's can have. This is useful for understanding the level of technological manipulation society is exposed to.

No matter what area of this alternative knowledge field I read about, something always turns up concerning the potential harm TVs can cause. There is a lot of nefarious technology piggybacking on an otherwise harmless technology.

For one, televisions create heavy levels of electromagnetic pollution. By nature of their construction, they radiate positive ions, X-rays, static electricity fields, magnetic fields, radio waves, and ultrasound. Any of these can affect your psychological, emotional, and physical state.

For example, positive ions are known to make people sluggish and fatigued. Any of the other fields can be modulated via the AC power supply or audio/video signal to create additional effects.

This is on top of what propaganda and hypnotic techniques are used in commercials and news programs. Concerning hypnotic techniques in the news, take a look at any headline news program, like on FoxNews. You'll see several things:

- the scrolling ticker at the bottom feeding propaganda into your subconscious while your consciousness is distracted listening to the news story
- rich undulating colors in the background, rotating logos, and seemingly superfluous moving background graphics that serve to entrance you into an alpha (hypnotic) brainwave state.
- multiple windows jammed into one screen, fragmenting your attention and causing information overload. This overwhelms and fatigues your mind, wearing it down and making it less resistant to indoctrination.

Couple this with neurolinguistic programming by politicians and news personalities, a type of intentionally nuanced language that speaks directly to your subconscious via manipulative words, phrases, and body language.

TVs also run at a frame rate, meaning they strobe. Strobing light is known to entrain the brain and act as a hypnotic opener of the mind. Related to this are patents describing modulation (pulsing) of the video signal itself, making an image imperceptibly brighter and darker at a regular rate to affect mood.

Another thing I recently discovered is that TV's generate sub-electromagnetic potential-fields that are strongly influential on the mind and biology. The picture tube works by firing electrons from the rear to the phosphorus screen on the front, meaning electron current is aimed directly at the viewer.

The vector magnetic potential, a type of field more primitive than magnetic fields, always accompany electron currents in the direction of flow. So vector magnetic potential fields are beamed out of the TV at the viewer. Potential fields are active on the biological, psychological, and emotional level, so I'm thinking this is a large portion of where some really insidious manipulation happens.

...since the body is a quantum system not only will it will respond to potential fields, even in the absence of classical EM force fields, but the action of potential fields may occur through quantum fields. Potential fields are associated with magnetic vector potentials (A) and electrostatic scalar potentials (phi). Since classical EM fields are derived from these potentials, they can be considered more fundamental. Quantum fields, on the other hand, are considered a new type of energy similar to Bohm’s "subtle" information fields and those described in quantum field theory. Potential fields may be considered as a bridge between the "higher order" quantum fields and the more familiar classical EM fields.

All this reminds me of an interesting passage in Bringers of the Dawn:

Modern technology is one of the biggest weapons of frequency control. You have been sold devices for entertainment and convenience, and they are all involved with frequency control. We recommend strongly that you get rid of your television sets. They are the primary tool used to manipulate your consciousness on a day-to-day basis. This experiment is so finely tuned that you respond subliminally to disease via the television. So there is an entire generation that is killing itself by watching television-and supporting the medical society while they are doing it.

Sometimes liberating information is broadcast-perhaps even a New Age show. However, you may watch such a television show about how uplifted and unlimited you can be, while subliminally you are being hit with a frequency that keeps you from original thinking. This subliminal keeps you immobilized and holds you in a "survive, arrive, be-on-time, be-silent, go-towork" society. Television also promotes inactivity and a sedentary, obese life. Look around you. Wake up, humans!

Most of the subliminals on television are done through technology that was developed in conjunction with off-planetary beings. The use of subliminals to upset human consciousness has become a worldwide program. If you think about the houses that have two, three, and four televisions in them, you must agree that this has been a very successful marketing program. Some people who know about the subliminals on television feel that they are immune to them. However, the effects of television are so permeating that no matter how clear you say you are going to be, you cannot counterbalance what the technology is presently doing to your vibrational frequency.

We have said that there are entities who feed off your emotional bodies. Think about what a clever tool television is for them. All over the world, billions of humans are emitting emotional juices into the atmosphere based upon what they are watching on the tube. They don't have to have too many wars anymore to get you all riled up-they can simply make movies!

People who need to watch television are not tapping into the wealth of information within their minds and immediately accessible all around them. As a matter of fact, if you really want to evolve, do not read your newspapers, do not listen to the radio, and do not watch television. If you are able to be media free for periods of time, and you disengage yourself from the frequency of chaos and anxiety and stress and hustle-bustle and temptations of all kinds that you don't need, you begin to get clear. You begin to listen to what is going on inside of yourself and to live in the world and not necessarily be lost in it. You become clear. We cannot emphasize this enough!

Electronics also jam your frequency. Even when they are not specifically designed to jam your frequency, sometimes there is incompatibility between the electronic frequency of something and yourself. Plus, as we said, many of them are designed to create static so that you will always stay at a certain vibratory rate, turning you into safe, harmless, inactive, productive cattle.

What about computers? The second most predominant piece of hardware in the United States is the computer. How many of you go to work on computers and end up getting headaches, particularly when you work for large corporations and are hooked up to their mainframe? Large companies are into aspects of mind control; they use your minds to generate energy to achieve something for themselves. Personal computers are not as potent and powerful.

Then there's the accounts of cable boxes containing cameras and microphones to allow monitoring of what goes on in your home... http://www.geocities.com/covertmatrix/cable.html

Many parallels to "1984" and "They Live" except it goes beyond what was revealed in these works of fiction. Truth really can be stranger than fiction.

Re: the effects of television

Very, very interesting.  I have to admit I couldn't understand some of that phsyics, but it doesn't sound too good for t.v. lovers!   I watch too much television, and I stuggle to keep my viewing time down.  I'm assuming that computers are not associated with the same negative effects since they use pixel technology.  What about movies, I'm an avid film fan, would those have the same subliminal effects?  Would it be better to watch films on the computer?

Re: the effects of television

Here's an experiment you can try: take any small portable radio, switch to the AM station, and then hold it up to various electronic devices (computer, TV, laptop, clock radio, AC adaptors, etc...)

You'll pick up a lot of noise. And that's just a tiny sample of what's coming from these things. We can only do what's within practical limits. No need to go Amish. Just become aware and act on that awareness.

I'm assuming that computers are not associated with the same negative effects since they use pixel technology.

If you have a laptop or LCD flat panel monitor, the effects less than  TV. There is still some pulsing of the light, but you don't have the more noxious emissions. The effects of regular computer monitors reside between flat panel versions and TV. But take into account that with TV, you're sitting many feet away, while with a computer monitor you're up close.

What about movies, I'm an avid film fan, would those have the same subliminal effects?  Would it be better to watch films on the computer?

Movies on an LCD screen are comparitively safer, if you can afford to do that. As for films in a theater, you're watching light reflecting off a silver screen which is naturally less harmful than TV.  But you're still dealing with subliminals, flashing lights, and so on.

Besides keeping you from growing, learning, and living life, the greatest danger with TV and movies is their basic visual and audio content: the imagery, emotional manipulation, and propaganda. You sit there, the mind switches into a hypnotic trance, and then your subconscious is programmed. The mind gets into a habit of only absorbing and obeying what it's being shown.

The physics stuff, translated into clearer language, says that although electromagnetic waves (like light, microwaves, infrared, radio, x-rays) can affect our minds and bodies, the fields that these waves are made from are even more powerful. Sort of like an underwater current being more powerful than any waves on the surface. It's possible to have underwater currents without waves, meaning certain sneaky devices can radiate fields that impact us without being measurable like ordinary electromagnetic waves are. And TV's are perfect broadcasters of these fields.

Re: the effects of television

Thanks, Tom, for that info. What a relief to have it. This is so important.

Re: the effects of television

A friend showed me this interesting article on the effect of TV, particularly on the neuro-physiological aspect of it:

Re: the effects of television

Jerry Mander's Four Arguments for The Elimination of Television got my attention a couple years ago.  It is a thorough book.

I also remember reading once that one burns more calories staring at a blank wall than watching television, since watching television is so passive.

Yes, safer in physical terms, but that's sneaky.
You (we) will accept therefore spending more time in passive watching LCD-movies.

Very true; and  remind: a broadcast program is being watched by millions, so millions have the same thougths (subconscious & conscious) that will strongly resonate to the Earth's plane mind-pattern fields ---->>> FEEDING the STS MATRIX inventories.

Mind-pattern fields are the strongest fields; on the Earth plane they overrule the "official"physical laws of Electricity and Magnetism.

So,  it's to say: TV is the most powerful tool in performing BLACK MAGIC.

That's the really danger of TV watching.

Re: the effects of television

Through my practice of Reiki I have develloped energy-sensitivity. I can tune into something if I wish to perceive it in terms of energy. When it comes to TV as well as cell phones (some more than others), certain people, even certain books or pictures  I do not have the need to "tune" as the feelings range from unpleasant to incommodating or even unbearable, this is the case for TV. Believe it or not I feel certain channels are worse than others and DVDs less harmful than actual programs.
