Digital TV: Mind Control by the Sound of Silence


Padawan Learner
Last night the wife and I were watching TV together, something I rarely do these days (watch tv). I noticed the picture tube acting up. Great, this is all I need now. Another expensive purchase. So today I was thinking of stopping by the store to look at the latest until I ran across this article.

Digital TV: Mind Control by the Sound of Silence (
[This is an extremely timely and important essay. It overviews a secret Pentagon psychotronics technology known as Silent Sound Spread Spectrum (SSSS) that has been fully operational since the early 1990s. I first found out about the use of this technology from Al Bielek in a 1992 video he made with Vladimir Terziski. This technology was used against battle-hardened Iraqi troops fortified in deep underground bunkers in Kuwait and Iraq in the first Gulf War in January of 1991.

The physical, emotional, and psychological effects of this technology were so severe that hundreds of thousands of Iraqi troops surrended en masse without firing even a single shot against US led coalition forces. The numbers reported in the news were staggering: 75,000 and then annother 125,000 (or more) Iraqi troops would come out of their deep desert bunkers waving white flags and falling to their knees before approaching US troops and literally kiss their captor's boots or hands if given the opportunity.

Why would eight year veterans of Middle Eastern warfare (with Iran 1980-1988) behave this way? Simple. They were subjected to a technology that was so extreme and incomprehensible that they were suddenly reduced to the level of compliant children and felt grateful to still be alive in the wake of their mind-wrenching experience.

This technology is about to be used, albeit in a more subtle fashion, against American citizens in a highly classified and covert operation to mind control and manipulate the entire population into 'compliance' with our New World order overlords. The technology will utilize a combination of HAARP transmitters, GWEN towers, microwave cell phone towers, and the soon-to-be-mandatory High Definition Digital TV that will enter your home via: a) cable, b) satellite, c) HD TVs, or d) those oh-so-easy-to-obtain "digital converter boxes" that the government is so anxious to help you obtain and underwrite most of the cost on your behalf.

But why is the government so anxious to help American citizens experience a clearer and more highly defined television picture? Does that make sense to you? Since when is the government so concerned about the visual quality of our televised entertainment that congress would pass an undebated statutory proclamation which mandated that the HD conversion take place on Feb. 17, 2009 and and then subsidze about 90% of the associated cost?

I'm only guessing, but if there are 200 million "regular" televisions in America to be converted into HD, then that $40 in government subsidy per TV x 200,000,000 = $8 billion. Why is the government so anxious to spend 8 billion dollars on her citizens to improve the clarity of a TV picture? Or is the recently touted "additional bandwidth" cover story that supposedly is to be gained with the HD technology the only and genuine reason for spending so much taxpayer dollars on HD conversion?

The second service that this author performs is to "out" two of our more deceptive CIA/Pentagon 'assets' masquerading under the rubric of natural health advocates. Their names are Rima Laibow and her husband, "former" Major General Albert Stubblebine. If your e-mail Inbox has been filling with warnings and articles in recent months about the coming Codex regulations and the "wonderful" job that Rima and her retired Army husband have been doing to try and stem the tide, then you know who I'm talking about.

Folks, is it time to wake up yet? Or should we just resume our slumber and wait for them to take us away in those spiffy Gunderson cattle cars that Phil Schneider warned us about in 1995 (you know, the ones with the built in shackles and manacles)?

The Antithesis of Freedom
By A. True Ott, PhD, ND

The year was 1961, and John Kennedy was soon to become the 35th President. Shortly before Kennedy's inauguration, President Dwight D. Eisenhower shocked the nation and the world with his televised farewell speech. The speech's content was shocking because General Eisenhower was a very popular war hero, and American military might was second to none.

Eisenhower, a highly decorated five-star general, was the Supreme Commander of all allied forces during World War II. It was Eisenhower's leadership during the Normandy invasion that ultimately freed Europe from the Nazi scourge.

Incredibly, in his farewell address, this great American hero did not warn the nation of the budding communist threat or the horrors of nuclear proliferation. No, not at all! Instead, this career military genius poignantly and soberly declared to this great nation:

"... We have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations.

"This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence -- economic, political, even spiritual -- is felt in every city, every state house, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to recognize its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or our democratic processes."

Here we have a career military officer, and sitting US President warning the nation in his final farewell speech, that something called "unwarranted influence by the military-industrial complex" poses an extremely dangerous threat to our Free Republic society. According to Eisenhower, this threat "exists and will persist."

To President Eisenhower, in January of 1961, this evil was a much greater threat to America than Castro's Cuba or Kruschev's Soviet Union. What exactly could have happened in the "military-industrialist" establishment that would have caused

Eisenhower to issue such a strongly worded warning? Improved machine gun production? Nope. Battleship production? Nope. Nuclear submarines? Nope. Proliferation of nuclear warheads? A concern of course, but a concern that most Americans were fully aware of.

No, obviously what caused Eisenhower such deep concern had to be something much more pervasively shadowy, dark and secret. Some new, covert, technology had clearly emerged that had the very real potential to provide certain individuals with the "acquisition of unwarranted influence" that in turn would "endanger our liberties or our democratic processes" (i.e., our free and fair election process). In other words, it had the clear potential to circumvent the voice of the people and completely empower un-elected power mongers.

Eisenhower, I would submit, was warning America about something called the "Sound of Silence".

Eisenhower was an honest and patriotic American. Like Marine Corp General Smedley Butler, who decades earlier declared to Congress that "War is a Racket," Ike knew that such absolute power and total covert control over the minds and hearts of individual citizens would corrupt society absolutely. He also knew and understood, as did the German philosopher Goethe: "No man is more hopelessly enslaved, than he who falsely believes that he is free." Therefore, he issued his strong, concluding warning to America. Today, this author must do no less.

The Sound of Silence is a military-intelligence code word for certain psychotronic weapons of mass mind-control tested in the mid-1950s, perfected during the 70s, and used extensively by the "modern" US military in the early 90s, despite the opposition and warnings issued by men such as Dwight David Eisenhower.

This mind-altering covert weapon is based on something called subliminal carrier technology, or the Silent Sound Spread Spectrum (SSSS) (also nicknamed S-Quad or "Squad" in military jargon). It was developed for military use by Dr. Oliver Lowery of Norcross, Georgia, and is described in US Patent #5,159,703 -- "Silent Subliminal Presentation System" for commercial use in 1992. The patent abstract reads:

"A silent communications system in which nonaural carriers, in the very low (ELF) or very high audio-frequency (VHF) range or in the adjacent ultrasonic frequency spectrum, are amplitude- or frequency-modulated with the desired intelligence and propagated acoustically or vibrationally, for inducement into the brain, typically through the use of loudspeakers, earphones, or piezoelectric transducers. The modulated carriers may be transmitted directly in real time or may be conveniently recorded and stored on mechanical, magnetic, or optical media for delayed or repeated transmission to the listener."

In layman's terms, this device, this "Sound of Silence"simply allows for the unwarranted implantation of specific thoughts, emotions, and even prescribed physical actions into unsuspecting human beings. In short, it has the very real ability to turn human beings into mere puppets in the hands of certain "controllers," or puppet-masters.

Eisenhower knew full well what such a "weapon" could do in the hands of greedy, conspiring men and women scheming to control the planet. It could easily result in the takeover of American society without a single bullet being fired. This is what he was warning America about, this is the "combination" he feared above all others.

Have the leaders of America ignored Ike's warning? Have conspiring and evil men and women utilized this diabolical technology on unsuspecting Americans and others outside of our borders? If so, will they continue to utilize the technology through the medium of television and radio? This expose will attempt to answer these questions, and give the reader a clear picture of exactly who made the decisions to use the "Sound of Silence" in both war and peace.

On March 23, 1991, a news brief was released in the form of an ITV News Bureau Ltd (London) wire service bulletin entitled "High-Tech Psychological Warfare Arrives in the Middle East." This was during the administration of George Bush Sr., during "Operation Desert Storm," and describes in remarkable detail a US Psychological Operations (psy-ops) covert operation successfully deployed against Iraqi troops in Kuwait.

Saddam Hussein's vaunted "Republican Guard" crack troops were promising Bush "the mother of all battles" with many thousands of dead coalition troops. On paper, it looked convincing. Hussein's Republican Guard troops were battle-hardened veterans of the 10 year war with Iran, while coalition troops were unblooded. The Iraqis had modern weaponry and were well trained in how to use it.

Something very strange happened, however. The "mother of all battles" ended before it began, as literally hundreds of thousands of Iraqi soldiers surrendered en masse without even firing a shot!

Here is what the British press reported on the incident (while the American press was censored):

"... an unbelievable and highly classified psy-ops program utilizing 'Silent Sound' techniques was successfully deployed. The opportunity to use this method occurred when Saddam Hussein's military command-and-control system was destroyed. The Iraqi troops were then forced to use commercial FM radio stations to carry encoded commands, which were broadcast on the 100 MHz frequency. The US psy-ops team set up its own portable FM transmitter, utilizing the same frequency, in the deserted city of Al Khafji. This US transmitter overpowered the local Iraqi station. Along with patriotic and religious music, psy-ops transmitted 'vague, confusing and contradictory military orders and information.

"Subliminally, a much more powerful technology was at work, however. A sophisticated electronic system designed to 'speak' directly to the mind of the listener; to alter and entrain his brainwaves, to manipulate his brain's electroencephalographic (EEG) patterns and thus artificially implant negative emotional states --- feelings of intense fear, anxiety, despair and hopelessness were created in the Iraqi troops. This incredibly effective subliminal system doesn't just tell a person to feel an emotion, it makes them feel it; it implants that emotion in their minds."

While utilizing such a "non-lethal" covert psy-ops weapon resulted in many lives being saved, both American, Coalition, as well as Iraqi, the question begs to be asked: how can Americans be assured that such a weapon is not being used on them by "Big Brother" on a daily basis?

Moreover, why was the real story behind the mass Iraqi surrenders censored so completely from the American people? Typically, secrecy of this nature is only employed when the subject is morally offensive, or when the powers that be wish to continue to deploy the subject without public scrutiny or oversight, or both. Clearly, if such a device employed covertly on Americans could result in "unwarranted influence" over a society, as Eisenhower warned, I submit the majority of Americans would be completely outraged and incensed, and rightfully so. Therefore, of course the technology would need to remain hidden away.

Officially, the Sound of Silence (S-quad) technology does not exist, just as the US Government officially denies the existence of UFOs and Area 51 (Groom Lake) in the Nevada desert. However, the physical realities cannot be ignored by the rational and logical mind.

For instance, during the first Gulf war, the man who most likely ordered the deployment of the Sound of Silence was Major General Albert (Bert) Stubblebine, who was the Commanding General of the US Army's Intelligence School and Center, as well as the Army's Electronic Research and Development Command (ERADCOM) as well as the Army's Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM). In short, Albert Stubblebine was the Army's liaison with the CIA and Naval Intelligence operatives (ONI), and as head of ERADCOM, he would of necessity have had complete working knowledge of the Sound of Silence weaponry, if indeed it truly exists.

He was the US Army's top spy-boss, and of course, was privy to all its secrets. Now retired from active duty following a 32 year career, General Stubblebine has combined with his wife, Rima Laibow to form something called the Natural Solutions Foundation, supposedly dedicated to fighting all health freedom threats to individuals including Codex Alimentarius, vaccinations, and of course the FDA Gestapo.

On their website, one can read this about Albert N. Stubblebine: "Many of the innovations he developed helped the US to conduct the First Gulf W ar effectively and swiftly with a very low casualty rate."

But of course, such "innovations" are never fully disclosed to Americans and are officially non-existent. With all due respect to General Stubblebine and shadowy power-brokers such as Frank Carlucci and Donald Rumsfeld, this author concurs whole-heartedly with General Eisenhower, and I declare that such posturing and secrecy with weapons of mind-control constitutes indeed an "acquisition of unwarranted power and influence" and has absolutely no place in a free and open society -- no matter how many soldier's lives it may save on the battlefield. The potential for massive misuse and abuse of such immense controlling power is simply too great.

Furthermore, with all due respect Mr. Stubblebine, is he and Rima Laibow using the cover of Natural Health activistism to hide their true agenda? Could this hidden agenda be the covert promotion and testing of Sound of Silence equipment and technology commercially throughout the world?

... Immediately after "retiring" from the army, General Stubblebine took a position as the "VP for Intelligence Systems" with Braddock, Dunn, and McDonald (BDM), a major defense contractor owned by the shadowy Carlyle Group and ex-Defense Secretary Frank Carlucci of Iran-Contra infamy…

Since the Sound of Silence machine technology was patented for "privatization" commercial applications by Dr. Lowery on October 27, 1992 , it clearly opened the door to private defense contractors such as BDM to develop their own "intelligence systems". It would then make sense to employ General Stubblebine as a consultant. Of course, what would then stop BDM from quietly marketing and selling the Sound of Silence to large corporations tied to Wall Street?

For example, imagine utilizing the Sound of Silence in a large Wal-Mart store, mixing the ELF waves with background music to subliminally brainwash dishonest shoppers not to engage in shoplifting? Such a device would save Sam Walton many millions of dollars in lost revenue every year.

Suppose also that a young, black man from Illinois was given access to, and was able to utilize the S-quad Sound of Silence technology in his public speeches, radio and 30-minute television"infomercials" -- all programmed and designed by "handlers" to illicit strong emotional responses from audience members who then are merely "hearing without listening."

Moreover, what if televisions across the US and Canada all went 100% digital [to be mandatory in Feb. 2009] in their signals (in order to successfully link to GWEN towers) which would allow the unrestricted use of the Sound of Silence frequencies in a complete and massive control of the nation's mind and consciousness?

I am telling you that is exactly what is happening. President Eisenhower was absolutely correct, and his worst fears were indeed well founded!

The military-industrialist complex has quietly completed the takeover of the nation's consciousness, and thus its very soul.

... Keep in mind that taking complete fascist control of America is just one step of the Zionist elites ultimate agenda, of which Stubblebine and Laibow have very likely pledged their true loyalty. The elitist Zionists overall objective is indeed absolute world control, something they refer to as a "New World Order"with them as dictators and overlords.

Again, the absolute secrecy surrounding the development and deployment of the electromagnetic mind-altering technology of the Sound of Silence in a very real way reflects the tremendous power that is inherent in it. This is why Eisenhower knew that he had to warn the nation about it back in 1961. To put it bluntly, whoever controls this technology literally has the power to control the minds of men -- all men and women everywhere.

Of course, whoever controls the minds of all humans, controls the wealth and destiny of planet Earth. Furthermore, Stubblebine, as commander of Army Intelligence would likely follow the prescribed manual of all covert ops, such as is found in a declassified US manual for the planned subversion and coup of the government of Nicaragua. The manual instructs the CIA "guerilla forces" to engage in different "false front" organizations designed to win the respect, trust, and influence of the enemy. Once complete trust and confidence is achieved by means of the activities of the "false front," then the destruction of the enemy by means of misdirection and disinformation tactics can more easily be executed.

I would submit there is no better "false front" to infiltrate in America than Natural Health proponents, for they are typically healthier, better informed, and more dedicated to preserving individual freedoms and fighting tyranny than other Americans. Thus, there could be no better "false front" to establish, and there is clearly no more potentially vicious wolf hiding in sheep's clothing than the man who knows more about the Sound of Silence secret deployment than any other human…

There is ample evidence that certain elitists in America and Israel plan to definitely extend the capacity of this technology to encompass all people on every continent. A key to this is the HAARP project where ELF and VHF frequencies can indeed be beamed off of the Earth's ionosphere to various GWEN towers world-wide.

Of course, the US Government officially denies all of this, telling the talking heads of the controlled news media that the GWEN towers are merely private cell-phone towers with no ulterior agenda, and therefore anybody who thinks otherwise is a lunatic-fringe conspiracy nut.

The evidence to the contrary, however is clear and unequivocal. Dr Michael Persinger is a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Laurentian University, Ontario, Canada. Concerning this subject, Dr Persinger writes:

"Temporal lobe stimulation can evoke the feeling of a presence, disorientation, and perceptual irregularities. It can activate images stored in the subject's memory, including nightmares and monsters that are normally suppressed. Contemporary neuroscience suggests the existence of fundamental algorithms by which all sensory transduction is translated into an intrinsic, brain-specific code. Direct stimulation of these codes within the human temporal or limbic cortices by applied electromagnetic patterns may require energy levels which are within the range of both geomagnetic activity and contemporary communication networks. A process which is coupled to the narrow band of brain temperature could allow all normal human brains to be affected by a sub-harmonic whose frequency range at about 10 Hz would only vary by 0.1 Hz."

Dr Persinger concludes the article by writing:

"Within the last two decades a potential has emerged which was improbable, but which is now feasible. This potential is the technical capability to influence directly the major portion of the approximately 6.5 billion brains of the human species, without mediation through classical sensory modalities, by generating neural information within a physical medium within which all members of the species are immersed.

"The historical emergence of such possibilities, which have ranged from gunpowder to atomic fission, have resulted in major changes in the social evolution that occurred inordinately quickly after the implementation. Reduction of the risk of the inappropriate application of these technologies requires the continued and open discussion of their realistic feasibility and implications within the scientific and public domain."

How can one have an "open discussion" on the subject when government circles continually deny the existence of such technology?

Lyrics to the pop song 'The Sound of Silence' By Paul Kane (aka Paul Simon), 1963

Hello, darkness, my old friend

I've come to talk with you again

Because a vision softly creeping

Left its seeds while I was sleeping

And the vision that was planted in my brain

Still remains within the Sound of Silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone

Narrow streets of cobblestone

Beneath the halo of a street lamp

I turned my collar to the cold and damp

When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light

That split the night and touched the Sound of Silence.

And in the naked light I saw

Ten thousand people, maybe more

People talking without speaking

People hearing without listening

People writing songs that voices never share…

And no one dare disturb the Sound of Silence.

"Fools," said I, "you do not know

Silence like a cancer grows."

"Hear my words that I might teach you,

Take my arms that I might reach you."

But my words like silent raindrops fell,

And echoed in the wells of silence.

And the people bowed and prayed

To the neon god they made.

And the sign flashed out its warning

In the words that it was forming.

And the signs said: "The words of the prophets

Are written on the subway walls

And tenement halls,

And whisper'd in the Sound of Silence."

... Paul Simon, whose family was part of the military-industrialist complex, was very likely a product of the early 1960s military experimentation in Silent Sound mind control, which is clearly what the lyrics of "The Sound of Silence" convey to those "in the know".

I don't think we'll be purchasing anymore televisions.

Yeah, I always thought it fishy that the gub'ment would be so willing to help folks out with the digital converter boxes. What the heck do they care? But then again what's a few bucks if it means the masses will stay dumbed down and glued to their idiot boxes?

This certainly warrants further research.
That was an interesting article Michael. Coincidentally, my older brother randomly called me today to tell me about a sale that Target has on a 42'' flat screen HDTV and was very earnest that I should purchase it. Perhaps this is an action of 'A' influence working to keep me in my place indirectly through my family? I think so.

I wonder if such technology may also apply to computers and cellphones? If I was of the orientation to better align myself to be a 4D STS candidate and happened to be in the position of the PTB, I would definitely NOT have overlooked the massive potential computers and cellphones also hold on increasing my power/control over the sheeple. In fact, inducing a growing dependency on such devices by the sheeple would have probably been one of my aims in the first place. Thus, it would be of necessity that I incorporate the "Silent Sound Spread Spectrum" technology into any and all such devices that have this property of dependency. Actually, I'd probably think not to do so would be rather arrogant and obtuse.


The Living Force
Yes.. Thank you indeed for this article. I would believe that this technology probably IS being used in laptops and cell phones as well. I have a 2yr old cell phone and it plays TV on some FLO TV network. And with our buddies from HULU out there making sure we have free TV on the internet (for our laptops), I can't see any reason why the PTB wouldn't be using this in all of our digital products today. My nephew spends quite some time on his computer and I can see a visible difference in him from when he is on the internet to when he is off for an extended amount of time. Its scary actually. I myself don't really watch TV because I find it to be disturbing how much disinformation and dramas are going on out there when you know whats really going on in the world. This does indeed deserve more attention.


Thanks for this post, Michael, definitely worth reading! Horrifying stuff, the connection to the Natural Solutions Foundation is also worth knowing. A crafty cover-up of sinister agendas.
There is so much information on potential mind-control technology through electromagnetic and geomagnetic activity, I was wondering if there was somewhere this information could be pooled? Has it always been going on to this extent or is the battle reaching new heights, so to speak?


Padawan Learner
In our never ending quest for the truth, it seems like the deeper we dig, the more bizarre things seem to be getting. It seems the PTB have corrupted virtually everything. No matter how harmless things may seem on the surface, there's always a dark ulterior motive. Our food supply being hijacked by huge corporations to poison our food, water and air. Our medicine not designed to heal and make us better but instead mask the symptoms to keep us sick, major religions instead of promoting peace joy, and love promote hate and wars. Everything is ass-backwards. The lies are so huge indeed, that no one will believe. How could we be so stupid?

Or it can be used to induce shoppers to buy products.

Advertisers are already using similar mind controllingtechnology to direct voices into the ears of individual consumers as they shop:

The marketers have your ear
Beam of sound aims its messages
By Jenn Abelson, Globe Staff | April 24, 2007

Advertisers have a new way to get into your head.

Marketers around the world are using innovative audio technology that sends sound in a narrow beam, just like light, making it possible to direct messages right into consumers' ears while they shop or sit in waiting rooms.

The audio spotlight device, created by Watertown firm Holosonic Research Labs Inc., has been used to hawk everything from cereals in supermarket aisles to glasses at doctor's offices. The messages are often quick and targeted -- and a little creepy to the uninitiated.

Court TV recently installed the audio spotlight in ceilings of bookstores to promote the network's new murder-mystery show. A voice, whispering, "Hey, you, can you hear me? Do you ever think about murder?" was beamed toward customers as they browsed the mystery section in several independent bookstores in New York.

For advertisers, the audio spotlight is a way of marketing to consumers, sending tailored messages without disturbing an entire store with loudspeaker announcements such as Kmart's iconic "Blue Light Special." The flat disk speakers with precision targeting have made sound possible in unlikely places -- from Boston's Museum of Fine Arts to the New York Public Library -- and are increasingly attractive to merchants trying to improve the shopping experience with a peaceful environment.

Major US companies, including Procter & Gamble Co. and Best Buy Co., are testing the device, but it is already being embraced abroad. Some marketers say it is only a matter of time before the technology takes off here.

"Advertisers look to capture people -- especially when they are in the buying mood," said Tim Bilgor , chief executive of Innovative Media Solutions in London, which has installed the audio spotlight in Istanbul and Madrid airports, in shopping malls in China, and in the showrooms of Fiat car dealerships, where messages about product features are beamed to consumers as they approach the cars.

"There's so many vision technologies it can be overwhelming," Bilgor said. "The audio spotlight can captivate people in new ways."

Unlike traditional speakers, which broadcast sound in every direction, sound from an audio spotlight speaker can be focused directly at one spot, so no one else can hear it, or projected against a surface so that sound appears to come from the surface itself.

For example, a box of Fruity Pebbles can advertise its nutritional content, heard by shoppers only as they walk by boxes in the cereal aisle. The audio spotlight uses ultrasound to stimulate the air into making sound, which is emitted in focused, laser-like beams.

Joseph Pompei , the 33-year-old chief executive of Holosonics, began his career in acoustics while working as an engineer at Bose Corp. in Framingham. But as the audio industry became fixated on spreading sound everywhere, Pompei wanted to focus on finding ways to direct sound. He left Bose and developed a prototype of the audio spotlight and started the company in 2000 when he was a doctoral student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Pompei knows that for some people there is a certain creepy aspect to his technology -- and he even delights in making mischief with it. At MIT's Media Lab, Pompei said, he used to stand on a balcony at the top of a five-story atrium and beam sounds of smashing glass to the ground floors as caterers were working at events to make them think they dropped dishes.

For his first demonstration in the campus theater, Pompei used the speaker to play a John Coltrane album and made it seem as if Coltrane's saxophone were flying over the audience and whooshing by their faces. He saved $2,000 as a graduate student and began building the business after he graduated in 2002. A year later, MIT's magazine, Technology Review, awarded Pompei the Top Young Inventor Award.

"It's a device that preserves the quiet," Pompei said. "There's so much going on, it's sometimes an audio assault. This is like surround silence."

Baba Shetty, director of interactive media at Hill Holliday in Boston, said it is very easy for people to filter out visual messages and advertisements -- you look away or don't pay attention -- but audio is less avoidable. It could be a great way to communicate with customers as they shop, he added, but it could also make consumers feel as if their personal space is being invaded.

"It doesn't do your brand any good if you annoy people," Shetty said.

At T-Mobile dealers in the United Kingdom, the audio spotlight allows consumers to test ring tones without the entire store knowing that they want to download Abba's "Dancing Queen." The Boston marketing firm Digitas hung an audio spotlight over a couch in the lobby so visitors can hear the company's advertisements playing on an LCD screen. But it's pure quiet for the receptionist sitting just a few feet away.

The MFA installed four audio spotlight disks as part of the recent exhibit, "Fashion Show: Paris Collections 2006." Each designer's collection had its soundtrack playing in its own zone, but the technology ensured music from the Chanel collection did not cross over to Dior's.

Hadi Al Bahra , chief executive of TechnoMedia Ltd., said his firm has placed the audio spotlight in supermarkets for Carrefour SA, the world's second largest retailer after Wal-Mart Stores Inc. TechnoMedia is also pairing the technology with LCD screens, selling 15 second spots in different aisles for juices, coffee, milk, shampoos, among other products.

"For the first time, you can deliver different audio messages in different aisles at the same time and yet keep the environment noise free, which opened up the possibilities of new ways of marketing and selling air time," Al Bahra said.

Holosonics is also looking to reach consumers at home . The audio spotlight, Pompei says, has the potential to limit long-running feuds over television volume and musical taste.

Paul Hummel of Saddle River, N.J., bought the device last summer for his bedroom so he could sleep peacefully while his wife watched television.

"We have a fairly good audio/video system. Once you've done that and can spread sound everywhere, then you want sound selectively," Hummel said. "Now we can crank up the big TV without disturbing our neighbors or the rest of the family."

Hmmm, if they combined the sound spots with the subliminal cranked up you'd have a subliminal mind altering directional weapon....a wall of confusion.

For what its worth, I was a little sceptical of the above article, so I went and looked for the patent....personally reading the pattent brings the above article to even more clarity.


Heres some of it...


This invention relates in general to electronic audio signal processing and, in particular, to subliminal presentation techniques.


Subliminal learning enjoys wide use today and subliminal tapes are being manufactured by a number of companies in the United States alone. Several decades of scientific study indicate that subliminal messages can influence a human's attitudes and behavior. Subliminal, in these discussions, can be defined as "below the threshold of audibility to the conscious mind." To be effective however, the subliminally transmitted information (called affirmations by those in the profession) must be presented to the listener's ear in such a fashion that they can be perceived and "decoded" by the listener's subconscious mind. We are referring to audio information in this discussion, however, information could be inputted into the subject's subconscious mind through any of the body's sensors, such as touch, smell, sight or hearing. As an example, early development work in the subliminal field utilized motion pictures and slide projections as the medium. Early research into visual and auditory subliminal stimulation effects is exemplified by U.S. Pat. Nos. 3,060,795 of Corrigan, et al. and 3,278,676 of Becker. U.S. Pat. No. 4,395,600 of Lundy and Tyler is representative of later developments in today's subliminal message techniques.

The majority of the audio subliminal tapes available today are prepared using one basic technique. That is, the verbal affirmations are mixed with, and recorded at a lower level than, a "foreground" of music or sounds of ocean surf or a bubbling mountain brook or other similar "masking" sounds. The affirmations are generally recorded 5 decibels (db) or so below the "foreground" programming and regenerative automatic gain control is usually applied to permit the affirmations to change their recorded amplitude in direct proportion to the short term averaged amplitude of the continually varying "foreground" material. In other words, the volume of the affirmations will follow or track the volume changes of the "foreground" programming, but at a lower volume level. Circuit provisions are also usually included to "gate" the affirmations off when the music amplitude is low or zero. This insures that the affirmations cannot be heard during quiet program periods. Thus, today's subliminal affirmations can be characterized as being "masked" by music or other sounds, of constantly changing amplitude and of being reduced or cut off entirely during periods of low or quiet "foreground" programming.

One of the principal, and most widely objected to, deficiencies in available subliminal tape presentation techniques is that the presence of the "foreground" material is intrusive to both the listener and to anyone else in the immediate area. No matter what "foreground" material is chosen, the fact remains that this material can be heard by anyone within its range and presents a definite distraction to other activities such as conversation, thought, desire to listen to other programming such as radio or television, need to concentrate, etc. Additionally, and because the tapes are used repeatedly by the same listener, any "foreground" music or material eventually becomes monotonously tiring to that listener.

It is the purpose of the following described invention to eliminate or greatly reduce all of the above deficiencies. Although its application to the magnetic tape medium is described in the following discussion, the technique is equally applicable to most other desired transmission mediums, such as Compact Disc, videocassettes, digital tape recorders, Public Address (PA) systems, background music installations, computer software programs, random access memory (RAM), read only memory (ROM), "live", real time applications and other mediums now in existence or to be developed in the future.

Implemented on tape cassettes, for example, the subliminal presentation described here is inaudible i.e., high audio or ultrasonic frequencies, the affirmations are presented at a constant, high amplitude level, and they occupy their own "clear channel", non-masked frequency allocations. If desired, the previously described "foreground" music or other material can be added to the tape through use of an audio mixer. The "silent" recordings are inaudible to the user or by others present and are therefore very effective for use during periods of sleep or when in the presence of others. Additionally, the basic requirements of subliminal stimulation are met. That is, the affirmations are efficiently transmitted to the ear and, while undetected by the conscious mind, are perceived by and efficiently decoded by the subconscious mind.

I wonder then, what can be done to protect yourself against such things? Other than truly knowing yourself (so being able to detect any subliminal input/effect on the self).
This is of course, presuming that it actually works!

Re Stubblebine and Laibow, from 'The Codex Alimentarius' thread here :

[quote author=NormaRegula March 18 2007] This [the Codex] is very disturbing, no doubt about it. However, I have a few doubts about Dr. Rima Laibow, who is married to retired General Albert Stubblebine. Over the years, Stubblebine's name...and that of his wife...came up during my research into why the world was so messed up.

Some of the mind control sites had him listed as a disinfo agent of the PTB. According to one site, Stubblebine was the commanding officer of the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command, (INSCOM) a division known for having ties to CIA mind control programs, and has reportedly worked with retired Colonel John Alexander, (do an internet search on this guy!) Dr. Stephen Greer, and others attached to elite-sponsored Foundations on many projects involving psi and UFOs.

I did a search of his name on this website and came up with 3 hits. On one thread, Laura wrote a response to Stubblebine's interesting public comment that he didn't believe a 747 hit the Pentagon on 9/11, along with the General's choice of people he hung out with. (ie: Interview with Alex Jones) Laura wrote: "On the other hand, Stubblebine and Laibow could be perfectly legit. But something about them is niggling at the back of my mind and I can't remember what it is."

Go here for the thread:

I, too, have something niggling at the back of my mind regarding him and his wife. (The website appears to be run by the two.) Now, I never thoroughly researched Stubblebine, nor did I look into all of his and his wife's network of friends, associates, and accomplishments (ie: as in fruit) from various sources...just some mind control forums, lists, etc.. Looks like I may have to. I want to make sure, or, at the very least, get a better idea of where this couple is coming from.

This is not to say that I believe they are COINTELPRO and the Codex Alimentarius is false. I just want some peace of mind that Dr. Laibow's path is the right one to pursue the matter further.


The day they make these HDTVs mandatory where I live is the day the tv goes into the bin! No kidding!


the digital TV conversion has been postponed, from what I have heard


Jedi Master
The mandatory part of the switch has been postponed, however some broadcast stations (like the ones in the San Antonio area) have already switched.

Al Bielek is mentioned here, wasn't him mainly a disinfo agent? And who's this guy, A. True Ott? :huh:

I wonder if it would be possible to detect the SSSS with test instruments? I would think that it has to be some type of signal passing through the airwaves would it not? Would it be repetitive patterns based on what emotions/feelings they were trying to provoke?

Of course, with out knowing exactly what it was we were looking for it would be kind of tough.

Very interesting and scary to say the least.

Thanks Michael, for bringing this technology to attention and to WebGlider and RedFox for supplying some patent and marketing detail/angles.
For what it's worth, here's how it looks to me:

So, Dr. Lowery patented original technology October 27, 1992 (Filed in December 28, 1989). There's no telling how widespread its' implementation is at this point.

I was disappointed in Ken Adachis' preamble to the 'Sound of Silence' article. He doesn't seem to persuade this reader with his formula of facts + attitude/imagination = conclusion.
Early in the article, his case seems not to differentiate between digital, HD and analog carrier waves. It's all lumped together under the idea of mind control, but is it? I'm still not sure if a mind can be effectively programmed with digital signals as with analog after reading this. Maybe I've misintrepreted his intent.
Towards the end of his introduction, he does allude to the possibility of "additional bandwidth" as a cover story but without mentioning its' possible significance.

What I'm left with is a sneaky suspicion that the important thing is the analog frequencies that are 'freed up'. With legally mandated digital broadcasting, there will be few, if any, analog transmitters and receivers left 'out there' to pick up or otherwise disturb or intefere with governments' use of these carrier wavelengths. Or so it seems.

I'm thinking a clue can probably be had from a quote from the patent application as referenced: (emphasis mine)

This is of course, presuming that it actually works!

As to "does it actually work?", from all the available evidence to date, it appears the answer is yes, although probably not to the extent the fear-mongering implies (absolute and total control, and all that jazz).

Using the two quotes below, (emphasis mine) it looks to me like the main idea is to have your subconscious "shout" or speak loudly at you in the 60-70 decibel range in order to stimulate strong emotional responses/reactions (the 'motive force' to initiate the suggested course of action?):

I wonder then, what can be done to protect yourself against such things? Other than truly knowing yourself (so being able to detect any subliminal input/effect on the self).

...and in spite of the fact that Dr Persinger concludes his article by writing (emphasis mine):
[quote author=Dr Persinger]
"Within the last two decades a potential has emerged which was improbable, but which is now feasible. This potential is the technical capability to influence directly the major portion of the approximately 6.5 billion brains of the human species, without mediation through classical sensory modalities, by generating neural information within a physical medium within which all members of the species are immersed.

...I seem to think that awareness (knowledge protects) and the Work is a mediating influence for us.
Those of us in the Work are more than likely protected by "just being aware of the possibility" as indicated in Session 971101:

[quote author=Session 971101]
Q: So, in other words, C**** may have been subjected to some of this programming by going there and spending so much time looking for the murals?
A: In her case, no, because you warned her, therefore her conscious state was in the "awareness mode."

If we are truly practicing self-observation and external consideration and feeling the friction between our self-disciplined behavior and our emotional impulses, then I suspect we are already prepared to withstand an unexpected urge to "do something because it feels right" or react to an unexpected affinity or attraction towards something, or allow ourselves to act out a knee-jerk reaction because something seems to be making us 'feel bad', or whatever the case may be. Other than strong, mysterious emotional prompts, it may help to be aware of physical signs of possible programming attempts, such as 'headaches', a feeling of inexplicable uneasiness and sensations of that nature, as indicated in this out-of-context quote from Session 970822:

[quote author=Session 970822]
Q: Okay, C**** is probably in Colorado by now. Can you give us a clue as to her reaction to the Denver Airport?
A: Headaches, for one.
Q: Well, how will she feel about the murals?
A: Uneasiness. Strange men starkly observing her photographic efforts...
Q: Is she gonna get freaked out?
A: Maybe.
Q: Anything else about C****'s trip?
A: Wait and see... stay tuned...

As far as the average person being aware of this technology outside the marketing fields, and assuming the average, ordinary citizen is constantly subject to uncontrolled disassociation, little present-time awareness, being carried away on emotional tides, simple associative thinking, knee-jerk reactions, internal considering-based behavior, then it seems possible they won't even notice anything at all.
