Mind Control – Part 2

TimeWatch Editorial
May 26, 2017

In part one of this Editorial, we began to look at the profound impact of the subliminal as dealt with in Steven Jacobson’s book entitled “Mind Control in the United States.” His book buttresses the idea that we should indeed “guard the avenues to the soul.” His warning is totally in line with the counsel given by the Apostle Peter, in 1 Peter  1:13, which says: “Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;” 

“What the conscious mind believes, the subconscious acts on. It works like programming a computer. You feed information into a computer, and the computer acts on it. However, if the information you feed into the computer is wrong, it still acts on it! If you give yourself incorrect information or if others give you incorrect information, the memory banks of your subconscious mind do not correct the error but act on it!” Steven Jacobson, “Mind Control in the United States “page 7

Under normal circumstances, one would not be surprised if the thoughts expressed by Steven Jacobson, were coming from a religious philosophical orientation. Remember, Jacobson is according to his website, a graduate of the Boston University School of Communications. He worked in the film industry for 13 years, produced sponsored films, was a production manager and editor for a New York City documentary film company, did contract work for a Washington, DC film institute and re-cut features for U.S. theatrical distribution, TV syndication and cable.

“Picture yourself studying in school. You are reading a book. Your eyes are focused on the page of the book. The words on the page are the conscious distraction for your eyes. The information you are reading is being programmed directly to your subconscious mind. You are not consciously analyzing the material you are reading until you look away from the page and think about it. It is at this point you have the opportunity to analyze the information you have just read and accept it as true or reject it as false. If you accept the information as true, it is programmed that way to your subconscious mind. If you reject the information as false, that is programmed to your subconscious mind. However, if you don't know if the information is true or not, a curious thing happens. Your trust in the source of the information determines whether or not you accept the information.” Steven Jacobson, “Mind Control in the United States “page 8

Too often today, we are convinced that information contained in a published format must essentially be true. That is quite often, not the case. Listen to how Jacobson continues.

“If you do not believe that a book could contain information that was false (unintentionally or intentionally), then you would accept its information as true even if you weren't sure or didn't understand it. This is especially true in school where there is pressure to accept what is presented as true because that is what is expected and that determines your grade and your future. Repetition of the information imbeds it in your subconscious mind so that your acceptance of its truth (accuracy) becomes a conditioned response. You accept this information as true without thinking whenever it is presented to you again.” Steven Jacobson, “Mind Control in the United States “page 8

But published materials are not the only means of manipulating our thought processes. Have you ever wondered why advertisements are usually accompanied with music?

“Think back to a time when you have been saddened by a song. It may have brought a tear. You might have felt it in your stomach as a change in muscle tension. The power of music has been recognized throughout history. Plato and Aristotle believed that people could be controlled by music. It affects your body, your mind and your emotions. Sound causes changes in your body chemistry, blood pressure and digestion. Even sound that you cannot hear affects you. Low frequency "infrasonic" sounds affect your internal organs and can cause headaches, nausea, dizziness and fatigue. Fast music will speed up the nervous system while slow music will slow it down. Your entire body is sensitive to sound. Sounds vibrate in different parts of the body. Low tones will vibrate in the lower parts of your body, and high tones will vibrate in the higher portions and on into the head.” Steven Jacobson, “Mind Control in the United States “page 9

In other words, music tends to bypass the thinking processes of the mind. The effectiveness of this process is demonstrated by the fact that one does not even recall the source of the information that has been fed into, not just the mind, but the personality.

“Sixties rock superstar Jimi Hendrix said: "You can hypnotize people with music, and when you get them at their weakest point you can preach into their subconscious whatever you want to say." Much of today's popular rock music is built around a heavy bass pattern louder than the melody. These loud, low frequency vibrations and the driving beat of most rock music affect the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland produces hormones mat control the sexual responses of males and females.  These low frequency vibrations vibrate in the lower parts of your body so that the music "feels" good.” Steven Jacobson, “Mind Control in the United States “page 9

One more important element should be clearly understood. The fact that we cannot consciously understand lyrics does not protect us from the influence of those lyrics!

“It is important to note that the lyrics of many rock songs are not clearly distinguishable consciously. Now remember your subconscious mind hears all. Repetition of the message is mental programming. Research indicates that repeated hearings, whether sought out or not, yield acceptance and even liking. When you do not hear the message clearly, you cannot make the conscious choice to accept or reject it. When you cannot make that choice or when that choice is taken away from you, the message is programmed directly to your subconscious mind without your knowing it, thus circumventing analysis and choice in accepting the content of the message. In time the effects of this kind of programming will appear. These effects can be physical, psychological and emotional. Most people don't pay conscious attention to the things that affect them subconsciously because they don't know what to look for. However, when pointed to, these things are recognized and understood.” Steven Jacobson, “Mind Control in the United States “page 9
