Good Interview on Entrainment Technology

By NuttBoxer following x   2017 Oct 4, 3:31pm 98 views   2 comments   watch   quote     share  

"OK, on to entrainment, technology, subliminal programming and financial
manipulation. We’re going to talk for about an hour and a half on this one. I
think this is a very important topic. My goal is extremely modest. I want you to
simply understand that this type of invisible influence and manipulation is
going on and you need to take that into account in your day to day life. You
can protect yourself from it, but the thing that helps you the most is simply
knowing that it does exist and knowing that its very profitable for some people
to use it in a variety of ways.

I don't know about entrainment, but subtle things that are tangential to the story, background things, like what a normal home looks like in a sitcom, definitely communicates to people. Just look at any drug ad, for example. The story isn't about the way the family looks, or the home they live in, but theses things are designed to communicate normalcy, to then get on with the message of why you should take the drug. You then think homes like that are normal.

There are definitely less subtle forms of persuasion being used in society. The comment that initially directed me to this article was that American society seems to be asleep at the wheel. We feel warm and fuzzy all the time so we don't care about a number of alarming trends. While people have a natural tendency to not rock the boat, and want things to be going well, I think entrainment is pushing us past some things we should have been a lot more uncomfortable about a lot longer ago.
