You have probably heard of subliminal messages and some of the urban
legends that surround them. A subliminal message is a message designed
to avoid detection by the conscious mind but will be registered in the
In short, you cannot see, hear or pick up any of
those subliminal messages, only your mind can.
Can you see the potential of this technology? Practically any ideas can
be delivered and embedded inside anybody's mind, whether knowingly or
unknowingly. It also means they will not attempt to debate the logics
or fallacies of those ideas, no matter how absurd or controversial they
Giant advertising companies and political parties will spare no cost on
getting the technology on their hands. Currently, subliminal messages
are most prominent in the self-help industry, where increasing number
of professionals are seeking self-improvement means without
compromising on their already limited time.
Some forms of subliminal messages include:
1) Texts or graphical messages displayed in front of the audience for a
very short time. It will appear and disappear so fast that the audience
would not notice it. Screensavers are very popular media for such
2) Imageries embedded in videos or publications as watermarks or
certain pose. Disney was one company rumoured to involve such deception
in their early animations.
3) Audio messages that are recorded in frequencies beyond the audible
range for human beings. Money are spent on CDs claiming to contain
subliminal messages which can help anyone to quit addictions, improve
capabilities and alter personalities, just by listening to those CDs.
Some softwares even allow you to record your own desire into subliminal
There are even movie references to such technology. In 'Josie and The
Pussy Cats: The Movie', the protagonist and her band listened to music
with subliminal messages and behaved abnormally. One of the band
members, Melody, acted by Tara Reid, was a staunch vegetarian who
developed a taste for hamburgers immediately after exposure to the
Other documented examples of using subliminal messages includes:
- A hidden message in movies to promote and boost popcorns and drinks
sales. (The owner of the theatre had admitted that he lied)
- Videos that carries subliminal advertisements.
- Embedded watermarks in print advertisements.
- Sub-audio messages used in self-help CDs
There are also testimonials that swear by subliminal messages.
However, I still have my doubts over its effectiveness compared to
brainwave entrainment program, a technology that is slowly receiving
popularity. Here's why:
1) There are plenty of universities and commercial standard experiments
that had successfully debunked the effectiveness of subliminal messages
compared to brainwave entrainment program.
2) Do you feel that a person can benefit from flashing messages and
sub-audible affirmations if he's blind and deaf? On the other hand, as
long as his brain's neurons are still firing electrical signals,
brainwave entrainment program will work just fine.
3) Subliminal messages reeks of snake-oil salesman or Nigerian get-rich
quick scheme due to the hype around it and its inability to withstand
scientific scrutiny. Brainwave entrainment program has a more logical
background with much more scientific backings.
4) Apparently, there are language barriers for subliminal messages. At
least you need not worry about your vocabulary with brainwave
entrainment program. Brainwaves share the same language among all the
livings; they are measured in hertz (a unit to measure frequency).
5) Lastly, brainwave entrainment program serves to train your mind to
adopt certain mental states by tuning the brain to certain frequencies.
Subjects of brainwave entrainment program experiments were reported to
exhibit the trained mental states long after the experiments had ended,
six months to be exact. In contrast, subliminal message experiments'
subjects display no effects whatsoever after the end of the experiments.
Brainwave entrainment program is definitely more reliable and effective
than subliminal messages. Subliminal messages may hold huge potentials;
imagine yourself learning a new language while reading a magazine or
picking up a new skill while listening to the radio en route, all
through subliminal means of teachings.But sad to say, such a technology
is better left in the realm of the sci-fi rather than the real world,
at least until our technology has reached that unprecedented level.
