→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: MANIPULATIONS OF THE BOX
vertical line Posted on Sep.18.2012 @ 10:40AM EDT by justin
I have stopped watching television for months. I have noticed a profound yes profound change in my thoughts. They are clearer, I have completely lost 'tele absence anxiety' (which interestingly took a while) and the interesting thing about this is that it was like giving up cigarettes, I found myself reacting with anxiety (as cold turkey) slight panic. I think now that there is much subliminal matterial on the tele. I think there is mind manipulation (suttler then the obvious manipulation)

vertical line Hah, the internet is worse. To the point of illusory wierdness. Things that kind of like a digital sickness. If you are on it to a point you have experienced this. Strange, I have been becoming dispassionate to both the box and net. Still, use them moderately.

I like TV, but Im selective about what I watch.

I dont watch the news.

I like documentaries, particularly about history.

Sitcoms are short on plot but usually good for a laugh or two.

I like movies.
