Aaron Franz, Transalchemy.com: This brief article focuses on television as a tool. We must understand that the television is far more than a modern luxury created simply to entertain us.
It is indeed a tool, which is being used by highly astute technicians. These technicians use the veil of entertainment to get us to lower our guard. This is an old trick. We would be wise to question that which we label harmless entertainment.
To say that television affects the mind is an understatement. That rabbit eared magician has more than one trick up its sleeve.
One of the most important being the ability to hypnotize. At this point it is important to note that hypnotism in and of itself is more than just a cheap trick.
It is absolutely legitimate and scientific in nature. I’ve found that people tend to lump stage hypnotism in with stage magic. This is understandable given their similar presentation.
