defense against "mind-stealing"
Some months ago there was shown on United States television screens a seemingly innocent commercial. A sixty-second spot, it was mainly composed of the usual photographic "frames" that whisked by the eye a normal advertising product message, with a critical difference. Inserted at four intervals was a single unrelated frame that, almost impossible for the untrained person to detect, flashed "Get it" on the screen.
The aim was for this subliminal message to flicker on too fast for the viewer to catch it consciously, but the eye was to relay the message to the subconscious. The individual was to be motivated without having a conscious choice. The advertiser fortunately was caught in the act, and television stations were informed that they could easily black out the subliminal portion from the commercial. However, apparently many stations didn't care enough about their viewers' freedom of choice to make this simple alteration.
