Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 07, 2014

Alexis C. Madrigal, The Atlantic: I want to show you something simple your mind can do, which illustrates a fascinating emerging theory about how the brain works. First, look at this logo of the World Cup this year ... People report this kind of thing all the time, and they use this same phrase: cannot unsee. Someone points out something and suddenly a secondary interpretation of an image appears. There's something a little scary about this process, even when the images are harmless. We have a flash of insight and a new pattern is revealed hiding within the world we thought we knew.

I saw a Youtube video once of an entire sex change, set to elevator music. You can't unsee something like that, no matter how much you want to.

Things you can't unsee?

Isn't this called subliminal messaging in advertising.

Nigella Lawson
the last minute of her cooking show
It's night, in Nigella's kitchen
She enters the room, dressed in slinky PJ's
Raids the fridge for something sinfully delicious
CANNOT UNSEE THAT IMAGE...

Isn't that illegal? At least I think they made subliminal advertising in films where they used to insert one frame of a product in the middle of a movie. I don't know if the law applies outside of the movie context, though. Product placement is probably better anyway,
