Re: Why are smart people fooled

I interpreted that as : If I do not lie to myself and others, then politicians (etc) cannot successfuly lie to me. About 10 years ago I had a very full-on experience around the subject of truth, the lies I told myself and others. I stopped lying, and my life got a lot better. But a side-effect was t...

Re: The PR of Secret Societies

Ref the rat experiment described earlier - there wasn't any mention of the playback equipment used. Any loudspeaker/cabinet design has lower and upper limits on frequency, beyond which the ability of the setup to produce that frequency tails off. Usually a lower limit for a small setup may be quoted...

Re: The PR of Secret Societies

I concur - a search would be futile I believe. I've read voraciously for years about audio engineering and I'm sufficiently autistic to know that if I'd ever come across anything relevant, I would remember it. Plenty of ways to influence the listener's mood as you say. A specific one I find really q...

Re: The PR of Secret Societies

In reading a lot of audio engineering interviews (I used to be a sound engineer years ago, amateur these days) I've come across the odd example from the 70s where they wanted the track to be just a tiny bit faster rather than a tiny bit of a semitone away from standard tuning. The exact tempo of a p...

Re: The PR of Secret Societies

I struggle to see how A=440Hz would cause the distress described, compared to A=444Hz, or in fact any other value. The description refers to 444Hz as being prevalent in nature, e.g. "...the “good vibrations” that the plant kingdom obviously broadcasts in its greenish-yellow display..." I'm not tryin...

Re: THE "CHATBOX"

I agree - I'm sure a proportion of people reading an article will see that there is a video but not watch it, and later even say they saw the video, as in effect they saw it on a screen. The screen is the power device in the whole psyop game, where being on a 'reputable' news site means viewers' per...

Re: Peak oil / abiotic oil / diesel wars

That's the elegant part of the scam - make people think that the oil companies have invented the abiotic oil theory in order to avoid the consequences of peak oil for as long as economically possible. Whereas the truth is that they (oil companies, govts, media etc) have invented the peak oil theory ...

Re: Peak oil / abiotic oil / diesel wars

No shit! There are very few people in my life who I will discuss such opinions of mine with. The best possible case is they think I have a screw loose, and go off to forget all about it. Other reactions are basically the same message, but with ever-decreasing courtesy. The whole DBA strategy has bee...

Re: Peak oil / abiotic oil / diesel wars

I'm not sure if it really matters whether oil is abiotic or not. My opinion is that it originates from great depth, and whilst finite, there could be enough to last for a very long time indeed. The overall aim of media is to keep the populace in a state of fear and uncertainty, so the peak oil story...

Re: THE "CHATBOX"

Interesting article Simon - I was pondering something similar the other day. Quite often on the websites of UK daily national newspapers, they report a story, and include that it was caught on video by 'an eyewitness'. The embedded video often has a 'shocking / violent / distressing' content warning...

Re: Einstein and other gods of science

It does look a bit like covert NLP too - maybe something in it, maybe not. Also, I just remembered something very similar - I spent four years working for a large technology company and when the big boss came over we would be herded into an amphitheatre and given no shit, a 25 minute talk. Never mor...

Re: Einstein and other gods of science

That 18 minute time frame does seem a limiting factor. Probably the owners of Tedtalks figured out the ideal time of presentations that their paying guests like. This might sound fucking bonkers, but I think it might have something to do with entraining the minds of an audience. I've regularly medi...

Re: The MOON HOAX

A side note I found in 2001: A Space Odyssey. The ESA logo is painted on the space station. The movie premiered in 1968. 7 years before ESA was founded... At 2min 20sec hwEPNZl8VHw On inspecting the YT video, it is presented as 'updated' by someone, including the ESA and other logos. They don't fea...

Re: Satellites : general discussion and musings

Just saw this in the news. Apparently there could be many more Near Earth Objects than are officially recorded. No shit. The whole news 'story' appears to be aimed at getting people to shit themselves about being hit by one. https://www.techtimes.com/articles/230984/20180623/there-could-be-thousands...
