Seriously, why is TV now constantly flashing crap during every scene transition, during every cut to commercial, during every return to the show and now during the show?

These flashes used to be disguised as the photo strobe lights going off 100 times a sec during red carpet photo ops but now it is everywhere.

This is so irritating why doesn't everybody complain and threaten to turn it off if they do not stop?

I can't figure it out. The flashing adds nothing to the show and it is simply a big irritation. What is its purpose and why doesn't everybody with a brain complain and ask them to knock it off?

I own 3 big screens and I rarely watch them. I watch nature shows, some documentaries, and hockey. Well hockey is in a labor dispute so that cuts my viewing way down.

There is a lot of flashes of bright lights and colors but that is not what keeps me away.

I see the bullshit in it. I watch about 10 seconds of local news, or CNN, CBC and I can't watch it because I can see the propaganda in it.

Same with the newspaper. I canceled my subscription because the thing was nothing more than bird cage liner.

I've noticed this as well, it's really irritating. I wonder if anyone has recorded the flashing and played it back in slow motion to see what may be in the flashes.

I've also noticed, it's not just a flashing but sometimes it's like the screen shrinks and flashes at the same time-make sense??

From what I've noticed it happens quite often on the SyFy channel-FWIW.

I know exactly what you are talking about.

Sometimes I close my eyes and can still sense the flashing.
I'm not sure WHY they do this. It must hypnotize in some way, thats my guess. Maybe to enduce epilipic seizures?? I really don't know.

I just saw a commercial for some futuristic movie and it was flash, flash flash every few seconds.

Doesn't seem to other people or else they are just used to it. I cannot STAND it.

I'm going on six years myself, and I've never been happier. TV is a waste of time and brain cells.
"Who shall I send, and who will go for us?' And I replied, 'Here am I. Send me..." For I have not given up on my country, so may they not give up on me.

I use my TV to watch old movies I have on DVD or a few movie channels now and then

I turn it off when I'm not watching it

I had a Semiotics professor years ago who put the fear of god in me regarding how television was being used to shape thinking patterns....and that was in the early 1980s

I can only imagine how bad it has gotten now

Turn on your TV at night and go stand outside and just stand off to the side and watch the lightening coming off your TV. Thats what its like. Lightening. Its bad. I haven't had cable or sat for three years now because I couln't take it anymore plus the programming sucks. I rent the odd movie now and use my computor. haven't missed it even a little and no more bill from it. It sucks.

The flashing that your TV does has to be bad for you. Try going outside and watching from a distance. You'd think the storm was in your house.

Why do you think the TV is also known as a stupid box? I don't watch TV anymore myself, because it's just a waste of time.

[link to subliminalmanipulation.blogspot.com]

Stimutech, Inc. of East Lansing, Michigan markets a computer video system that flashes subliminal messages on your television while you watch the regular programming.

The subliminal messages are prepared by a team of psychologists to change the thinking patterns and behavior of the viewer.

Subliminal perception is a deliberate process created by communication technicians, whereby you receive and respond to information and instructions without being aware of it.

Messages in the form of printed words, pictures or voices presented either very rapidly or very obscurely bypass your conscious awareness.

Anything consciously perceived can be evaluated, criticized, discussed, argued, and possibly rejected.

Anything programmed subliminally to your subconsciousness meets no resistance.

This subliminal information is stored in your brain and capable of influencing your judgment, behavior and attitudes.

.

Flashing lights can cause seizures.

There is a recent book about how the internet,
with it's flashings, links and other distractions,
can negatively affect long-term memory. What a
useful tool for Big Brother's rewriting of history.
