Samsung Begins Erasing People’s Memories Through Their TV


We are all familiar with stage hypnotists. Those entertainers who supposedly “hypnotize” people to do things they otherwise would not to the amusement of the audience. There is good reason to believe this is fake, or rather a phenomenon that is easily explained. But then it loses its mystique. Put another way, the prevailing thought is you cannot be hypnotized to hurt yourself or behave in a way you otherwise would not.

So there is a lot of debate as to what hypnotism really is.

Mind-control is a related matter. Can visual and audio stimulation presented in a powerful way actually disturb a person's feelings and actions such that they forget things, or imagine things have happened to them that did not?

In the never-ending pursuit of visual entertainment, Samsung has launched a site that purports to help you enjoy your favorite shows again by helping you forget ever having seen them in the first place.

Sound weird? Read on as the Vigilant Citizen fills us in.

Samsung’s Swedish site includes a bizarre feature called Unspoil Me – a 23-minute hypnosis session comprised of swirling patterns, mesmerizing music and a hypnotherapist controlling your mind. The aim is to get your brain to forget your favorite TV show in order for you to watch it again – as if it was the first time.

No, this is not a joke. The firm actually seems pretty serious about this. The session was created by certified hypnotists Ulf Sandström and Fredrik Praesto. Before starting, the site asks participants to consent to some terms and conditions including the following:

3. Before starting the experience I guarantee that I’m over 18 years old, fully mentally healthy and not suffering from any neurological problems or epilepsy. If not, I guarantee that I will contact a doctor before I take part of the experience. If I suffer from abnormally low blood pressure, I will also consult with a doctor before taking part of the experience.

4. I am aware that the experience (self hypnosis) could have real effects and I am prepared to forget the whole, or parts of my favorite TV series.

5. I ensure my sole purpose of using Unspoil Me is for its intended purpose, and I will therefore only think about a film clip or a tv-series which I will have the possibility to forget.

The tool also requires participants to put on headphones, to isolate themselves in a tranquil place and to watch the entire thing without interruption. It also recommends a night’s sleep before re-watching the “erased” TV show.

What do you make of that?

More importantly, if it actually works, it just stuck a knife in the back of the criminal justice system. How could we be sure of anyone's testimony if his or her memory could be selectively altered? In other words, if it could be demonstrated that a witness was subjected to such a mind-control experience, such a witness's testimony would be worthless.

Part of the problem here is that there are medical methods of erasing memories of the mentally ill who have been subjected to horrific trauma or who possess other disabling memories.

Nowadays, major tech companies are not satisfied with selling products to customers. They need to be able to spy on them, to collect their data and, if possible, to control their minds and thoughts. While this hypnosis site might be a bizarre marketing ploy to sell TVs, it nevertheless reflects the mindstate of these tech giants.

One needs to be very trusting to subject themselves to a corporate-sponsored hypnosis session. Who knows what other messages might be embedded in there? But the creepiness doesn’t stop here.

In real life, electroshock therapy is used to erase “bad memories” from subjects’ minds in order to treat depression and PTSD. In darker circles, hypnosis and electroshock are used to erase, distort and to re-create the memories of victims who underwent severe trauma – an important step of mind control.

The Daily Mail has more information on this very strange development. Follow their reporting on what Samsung has to say about all of this:

In August, Samsung revealed its new Q9 TV, which has an 88inch QLED screen, is available from Best Buy in North America from today – for $20,000.

It features a new picture technique said to display ‘100 per cent colour volume'.

Samsung says the giant set was launched ‘as consumers continue to demand larger screens and premium TVs'

The firm already offers its QLED TV lineup, which also includes 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch models.

When it was first shown off at the CES show in Las Vegas, Joe Stinziano, Executive VP of Electronics in America, said the QLED is set to give the ‘perfect viewing experience.’

‘With the Samsung QLED TV we want to offer you an amazing binge-watching experience, with a wide range of content and remarkable picture quality,’ Samsung says.

‘There’s really only one thing that could ruin your experience – that you already know how everything ends.

‘That is why we created Unspoil me; a tool that gives you the possibility to forget your favourite TV series, so you can re-experience it with the same thrilling feeling you had the first time you watched it.’

So we are to believe that we have become so addicted to entertainment that we are willing to release control of our minds to some allegedly effective and harmless mind-control system so we can binge watch the same shows over and over?

Sort of makes the hippies of the 1960's tripping out on LSD look normal.

The snag here is that LSD users actually had to take the drug to get the effect. If this is all real, we are contemplating the involuntary control of people's thoughts. In other words, a partial loss of their humanity. And a terrifying one at that.

What's to be said? We'll end with a paraphrase of the intro to an old radio program, “Who knows what evil lurks in the minds of those who would control our thoughts? Only those who work in the shadows know.”
