WHAT IT IS?
A subliminal message is a signal or message designed to pass under (sub) the normal limits of perception. It can be for example, inaudible to the conscious mind but audible to the unconscious mind or deep, it can also be an image conveyed in a way so short as to go unnoticed by the conscious mind but even so, perceived unconsciously.In everyday life, it is often stated (without evidence) that are used subliminal techniques for purposes of advertising and propaganda.
The first recorded mention on the subliminal perception is done in the writings of Democritus (400 BC), which argued that "much of what is not perceptible perceived by us." Plato spoke of this concept in his writing Timaeus.
Aristotle explained ingreater detail the threshold of consciousness in their subliminal "Perverse Naturalia" for almost two thousand years, and seems to be the first one to suggest that the incentives not received so well aware could affect dreams. 2250 years ago Aristotle explained in his theory of dream:
"If the impulses that take place during the day is not too strong and powerful impulses go unnoticed due tohighly awake. But while we sleep is the opposite, then the small impulses seem large. This clarifies what happens in the dream. If only There are echoes in their ears weak men believe that this is something special and relampagueante. "
Aristotle anticipated that at the beginning of the century was known as the effect Poetzle. The philosopher Montaigne referred to this phenomenon of subliminalperception in 1580. In 1968, Leibniz also proposed the notion that states:
"There are countless perceptions virtually unnoticed, which are not distinguished enough to perceive or remember, but that become obvious through certain consequences."
During the latter part of the nineteenth and early twentieth century, Freud investigated new concepts and theories on the subconscious and the unconscious.The theory of the dream of Freud created a basis on which Dr. O. Poetzle became one of the first scientifically important discoveries about the subliminal perception. Freud said that dreams are three main features:
Protect sleep by converting the material into potentially disturbing images of themselves to dream;
They represent the fulfillment of desire;
Stimuli are processed in sleep beforesymbolically emerge in the dream, especially those stimuli that threaten the individual.
Poetzle discovered that a stimulus or information captured by a person consciously does not appear in subsequent dreams. When studying the reactions to figures reflected or hidden in paintings discovered that the content of the dream was apparently traced by the stimuli received an unconscious level prior tosleep. The scientist made for its Law exclusion around the observation that human beings are excluded from the data collected their dreams so aware. He concluded that contents of the dreams consisted essentially of information perceived subliminally. Poetzle reflected on the concept of transformation of Freud, the third characteristic of sleep, it was essentially a modification of materialcollected so subliminal. This transformation was described later as the defense of the perception mechanism by which the individual is protected himself from the little information that might be pleasurable, or to produce potentially harmful consequences of anxiety. The information menacing deposited in the unconscious must be buried or turned into something relatively harmless before being admitted intothe consciousness. The analysis of sleep during psychotherapy is based on the interpretation of the state transformed a slow and careful so that the patient can learn to live comfortably when they emerge from the unconscious painful memories.
The disciples of Poetzle theorize that the eyes are about 100,000 daily fixings. Only a small portion of these fasteners are experiencing so aware....
