Impact of radio on African democracy joint hearing


The radio, computer, and internet were all designed to be used by the military for a strategic advantage.

"The voluntary press censorship regarding government policies and behavior is so blatant.

Voluntary censorship is just about as bad as state ordered censorship, because the end results are the same." - Jean Gerad

"By the beginning of the 1940's very few people doubted the sentiments and the effects that radio was capable of producing.

Behind the polished mahogany cabinets lay the national identity documents: multitudes of dreams, unleashed imagination, talented people trained in all the different kinds of entertainment ranging from drama to humor.

Radio dictated the limits of possibility where fiction and reality mingled and singing voices raised or lowered the volume of people's lives as if illusion or disillusion were a sort of resounding destiny." - Ulanovsky, César: Días de Radio, ed. Espasa-Calpe, Buenos Aires, 1995, p. 121


mid-1890's   The radio is invented by Guglielmo Marconi.

1896   Guglielmo Marconi makes his first sale of radio to the British war office to be used in the Boer War.

1899   Guglielmo Marconi sells his radio to the US navy.

1900   French Académie des sciences announces the Prix Pierre Guzman, a sum of 100,000 francs, to be given to a person who succeeds in communicating with a celestial body, other than Mars.

Communication with Mars is specifically exempted as many people believe Mars is inhabited at the time and communication will not be a difficult.

(Prix Pierre Guzman awarded the crew of Apollo 11 in 1969.)

January 19, 1901   Scientific American announces Tesla has communicated with Mars.

1926   "While theoretically and technically television may be feasible, commercially and financially, I consider it an impossibility, a development of which we need waste little time dreaming." - Lee de Forest, inventor of the Triode Audion vacuum tube

1927   Federal Radio Act requires a broadcaster, as a condition of their license, to operate in the public interest by covering important policy issues and providing equal time to both sides of public questions.

Electromagnetic frequencies, or 'airwaves', are regarded and regulated as a public trust, a communal resource like clean air and water or the commons.

Guglielmo Marconi, a staunch supporter of fascism, gets married.

Benito Mussolini is his best man.

October 23, 1928   RKO Radio Pictures, Inc. is founded to eventually become one of the Big Five studios of Hollywood's Golden Age.

1943   First operational electronic computer, Colossus, is built as a part of the ULTRA project for the British department of communication in the foreign office to assist in the decoding of intercepted nazi transmissions encoded with the German electromechanical devices known as the Enigma.

The first code-breaking machine is built at Bletchley Park, a government research center north of London, and is operational, cracking German codes, by December.

It employed approximately 1,800 vacuum tubes for computations.

1946   ENIAC, Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer is the first electronic computer capable of being reprogrammed by rewiring to solve a full range of computing problems.

Moore School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania and the Ballistics Research Lab operated by the army ordinance department at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Aberdeen, Maryland designed it expressly for the solution of ballistics problems and for the printing of range tables.

1969   ARPAnet, The Defense Agency Research Projects Administration (DARPA) of the DoD wishes to create a communications infrastructure for the American military that could survive a nuclear attack.

Many of the best attributes of the internet – including its architecture, technology, and gestalt – are the children of this military prototype.

The Cultural Wasteland of Television

TELEVISION SOLD THE PANAMA INVASION


"The corporate grip on opinion in the United States is one of the wonders of the Western world.

No First World country has ever managed to eliminate entirely all objectivity - much less dissent. " - Gore Vidal

"The whole entertainment element of television is dominated by men and women who have a unified, idiosyncratic view of life." - Ben Stein*

"Television has allowed us to create a common culture, and without it we would not have been able to accomplish our goal." - Morris Janowitz*

"One function television news performs very well is when there is no news we give it to you with the same emphasis as if it were." - David Brinkley



television is my life

"Images detached from every aspect of life merge into a common stream in which the balance of living is lost.

Fragmented views of reality regroup themselves into a separate pseudo-world that can only be looked at.

The specialization of images has culminated in a world of autonomized images where the deceivers are deceived.

The spectacle is a concrete inversion of life, an autonomous movement of the nonliving." - Guy Debord


bullshit goggles


"The "opiate of the masses" generates an image.

Television converts all of reality into entertainment.

A dream reality as vivid as life and inextricable from reality.

The nearest analogy to the addictive power of television and the transformation of values is seen in the life of the heavy user of Heroin™.

Heroin™ flattens the image; with Heroin™, things are neither hot nor cold; the junkie looks at the world certain that what ever it is, it does not matter.

The illusion of control Heroin™ engenders is analogous to the subconscious assumption of the television consumer that what is seen is 'real'.

In fact, what is seen are the cosmetically enhanced surfaces of products.

Television, while chemically non-invasive, nevertheless is every bit as addicting and physiologically damaging as any other addictive drug.

Most unsettling of all is this: the content of television is not a vision but a manufactured data stream that can be sanitized to 'protect' or impose cultural values." - Terence McKenna



World's ruling elites stare into the abyss

Kim Kardashian pairs up with an MIT to publish a scientific paper




"The story-telling function has by and large been usurped by remote professionals: the television and movie producers on the one hand, and the news media and educational establishment on the other.

Corporations provide us with stories to answer the question, "Who am I?"

The entertainment world feeds us stories about total strangers.

Dramas and soaps bestow the illusion of being intimate with celebrities.

Such shows tap into the inborn identity building function of the psyche, but that function is truncated when those intimately viewed lives off in television-land never feed back into our own." - Charles Eisenstein

Image creation technologies transform our way of thinking.

Television became the primary source of social culture modeling.

All information had to become entertainment to attract attention.

Naturally occurring individual bias removes the presentation from reality.

The hunger for entertainment allows for monumental fiction.

Television provides a common window on a present public reality.

Reality is boring. Entertainment is the standard reality is judged by.

The power of mythology in psychology hasn't changed in 4000 years.

Consensus requires a parallel reality with a common myth.



kill your television it trains ignorogance

"No matter what is depicted or from what point of view, the overarching presumption is that television is there
for our amusement and pleasure
." - Neil Postman


Television creates expectations that weigh heavily on the subconscious which actually changes brain architecture.



television free range chicken


"Reason requires a high degree of discipline of concentration; impression is easier." - Raymond Price



The main thrust of television is to create dissociation from reality, to convert a mental image into a symbol to be stored in the subconscious as a referent for later use.

The audience reacts - intertenere rather than ekstasis.



1946 "Television won't be able to hold on to any market it captures after the first six months. People will soon get tired of staring at a plywood box every night." - Darryl F. Zanuck*, head of 20th Century-Fox,

1969

A series of human experiments Herbert E. Krugman regarding the effect of television on human brainwaves reveals startling results.

In less than one minute of television viewing human brainwaves switch from beta waves associated with linear logical thought - to alpha waves.

Brainwaves revert to beta waves when the subjects stops watching.

A 'beta' state is considered a normal, awake state, while 'alpha' states are experienced in a deep relaxation or 'daydreaming' state.

In an alpha state passive learning experiences with visual information easily cross into consciousness without any conscious editing.

Television effectively numbs the left brain while engaging the right brain disallowing proper decoding and critical analysis.

Essentially, you go into a hypnotic trance. You are on 'auto-pilot'.






Herbert E. Krugman, who spent decades at General Electric (GE) headquarters as director of public opinion research, concluded:
  • Internal alpha responses can be stimulated by appropriate external rhythms or frequencies.
  • Special programs help people modify certain attitudes or behavior.
  • Passively learned material has an 'advantage' associated with so called subliminal perception, extrasensory perception, or hypnotism.
  • Passive learning can be enhanced by the artificial induction of alpha rhythm with the aid of a flickering light.


Televison flicker rate at 50 Hz (PAL, SÉCAM systems) or 60 Hz (NTSC)

"Let me try to explain the special qualities of one, two and three exposures. I stop at three because as you shall see there is no such thing as a fourth exposure psychologically; rather fours, fives, etc., are repeats of the third exposure effect:

Exposure # 1 is a "What is it?" type of response.

Exposure #2 will elicit a remembrance response and look for differences.

The second exposure looks closer for personal relevance.

By Exposure #3 image is locked in biologically.

Future contextual stimuli, a corporate logo, sparks immediate recognition.

There is a myth in the advertising world that viewers will forget your message if you don't repeat your advertising often enough.

It is this myth that supports many large advertising expenditures.

The public comes closer to forgetting nothing they have seen on television.

They just 'put it out of their minds' until and unless it has some use and then the response to the commercial continues." - Herbert E. Krugman

Underage drinkers pick brands they see on TV



"You restrain people from doing a wide variety of things, not compatible with the order of which they are members by subjecting them to ritual.

The process is simple: you make them dance round a totem pole until they are wild with excitement and become jellies in the hysteria of collective frenzy; you enhance their emotional state by any device, by all the locally available audio-visual aids, drugs, dance, music and so on; and once they are really high, you stamp upon their minds the type of concept or notion to which they subsequently become enslaved.

The savage wakes up with a bad hangover and a deeply internalized concept.

Religion is ritual, and the central role of ritual is the endowment of individuals with compulsive concepts which define their worldview.

Deeply internalized notions oblige them to act within prescribed limits.

Each concept has binding content of organizational descriptive content.

The conceptual system maps out the social order and required conduct, and inhibits inclinations of thought or conduct which transgress its limits.

This is how homogeneity is maintained within societies which, at the same time, are astonishingly diverse when compared with each other.

This can only be achieved by means of instilled conceptual constraint.

Somehow, semantic, culturally transmitted limits are imposed on men."

- Ernest Gellner, Anthropology and Politics, 1995

"Movies exert a powerful influence children and teenagers.

An odd dilemma, film is "The Art Form" of the 20th century.

Why does every movie have to appeal to the indifferent and violent?

Why the feel good, don't worry, touchy feely character of television news?

Why the mind numbing idiocy talk shows that celebrate consumerism?

"Should you seek the source of moving pictures in the vaudeville theater you will learn the comic, fantastic, tragic, the mystic scenes swiftly enacted in photographic pantomime are not real but feigned." - Moving Picture World

1917 Tableau technique, reminiscent of theatrical presentations, is being replaced by classical continuity.

Action was played out in a full shot from an audience standpoint, using staging to vary the composition and express dramatic relationships.

Consolidation of the characteristic approach to visual storytelling occurs.

The tableau setup inserted close-ups of important details, especially printed matter, like a letter or telegram or any item used as a MacGuffin.

An iterant actor close-up might be inserted filmed from the master angle.

The tableau approach was more prominent in interior scenes.

The master shot was closer and more tightly organized than a stage scene.
Filmmakers were freer about cutting action occurring outdoors.

The tableau approach was the default of filmmaking through the 1910s.

Watch people filing silently out of a movie theater, their eyes vacant.





Art provides ekstasis, which means "letting us stand outside ourselves."

Entertainment, intertenere, pulling us into ourselves denys us perspective.

Hugo Munsterberg noted sensory hallucinations and illusions creep into the consciousness of 'neurasthenic' individuals who were inclined to experience touch, temperature, smell, sound impressions from visual clues on the screen.

"Vivid as reality in the mind completely engrossed in the moving images."

Movies reinterpret reality in a way no other art form can.

Early audiences would shrink as a train on-screen pulled into a station.

They had to be reminded that what they were seeing was only an illusion.

What makes the movies appear even more real, and what makes them even more powerful in their effect, is how the audience mentally processed them.

As Hugo Munsterberg noted, the movies replicate our own consciousness.





As movies cast a spell to lull us into the narrative this concerns astute critics.

Critics realize movies cross the line separating reality from imagination.

Movies consume the common imagination like an expeditionary force, filling vacant heads with models to appropriate.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
