The illuminating box that first began as cathode ray tubes barely creating a visible moving picture now decades later an advanced high definition quality LED picture memorizing millions and creating star actors on the Hollywood Hills in California is a psychological and spiritual phenomenon. It is meant as a form of entertainment during a time of relaxation from a hard day’s work, but the viewer in many studies ends up idolizes the plots, characters and actors. Wishing their lives were that care free with the big houses, servants and all the money to spend on food, cars and booze.
This type of daydreaming of a lavish lifestyle from your typical low-income worker which in majority of the population of the world creates a problem when the many become desperate for this lust for fame and fortune. It can lead to drug abuse and addiction, betting one another to do stunts to attribute fame or even robbery and murder for adrenaline rushes. Plainly because it was all seen in film. What the ‘victims’ don’t realize is they are becoming brainwashed or programed from televised programming and advisements to ‘fit in and become part of the trend’.
From experience it does not bring family and friends together I had come to realize. Even with one television in the room there is arguing over what channel to watch, eventual the argument is won over through the parent deciding what to watch. Televisions have become very cheap, leaving even the poorest households to contain at least two. This may had remedied the previous problem but now family and friends separate themselves from one another willing to isolate themselves over a box that simulates illusions.
None of it is truly real what emits from the television, yet we all surround ourselves with a little bit of this illusion based on our beliefs and values. Values and beliefs are very powerful to the human condition, they go deeper than consciousness into the spiritual realm. I believe watching enough television without awareness how the program is trying to influence your mind can manipulate your values and beliefs. When I was young, about the age of 10-years old I and my brother got cable for the first time and it was so amazing. It wasn’t till fifteen years later I realized that the cartoons we watched on what I thought was a children’s program portrayed extremely provocative sexual and cynical scenes. This actual had a first impression on my young mind on how I now first visualize situations now as an adult; lust and cynicism has become a problem which I am now working on.
The modern world now puts these sins in plain sight on the television for all to see. I didn’t have the Internet when I was young, but now the Internet is very influential and there are a lot of iniquities for young minds, or impressable minds unaware how these programs use sin to manipulate the brain.
Throughout life our experiences will vary, but this force that moves through us all which contours our values and belief does not. Television had become a revolution in art, taking pictures and putting them in motion. This had allowed experiences to be put into ‘perspective’ but also manipulated. Therefore, anybody watching a television program without knowledge of the reality of the situation gradually creates a false value and belief. This eventually became a great idea to use when selling products for companies. When selling cloths, healthcare products, or cloths to dress your pets. The programing from the television and the creators behind the curtain became creative over the years changing their tactics with the times leading to the most outrageous trends such as demonic arts, shootings, protests, and behavioral outrages. This is only from TV shows, movies and the ads in between. The advertising companies really try to hit their demographics during major events like the super bowl or the primary election. Now that the television is the main intrusion in the home there is no peace for a reasonable rational conversation.
Even with the simplest thing as a young growing girl going through puberty, and her mom would want to talk about sex. The daughter would act like she knows it all, walk away, lie and avoid mom and the conversation only to seek refuge to a TV idol or a friend whom has the same insecurities. I had this revelation when I realized a divide between my mother and I in this home. It began not when I first arrived back home, we used to watch movies regularly together and make comments about the plot and actors even talk about God during the film. Gradually we gravitated away from this…I do remember when I had gotten a laptop and spent more time on that at first until I built a new PC with a high definition monitor- now I could watch whatever I wanted in peace in my own room. My mom, she watched TV in the living room, then someone offered another television and she put that in her room and now she watches TV in her room laying on her bed almost non-stop. So, we have 2 TVs, 3 computers and one laptop. My mom has been non-stop focused on the news ever since Trump became president. Myself, I write blogs on the computer and when I need to take a break from reading I binge watch TV or movies. Both of us are inside majority the time unless we are at work. This is very unfortunate. It makes me wonder what it does to my brain physically and physiologically. I have yet to do independent research on others that have the same habit. This may just be a correlation. This type of habit could affect my sleep, length of life, weight, back pain, memory, sight, hearing, attention, etc.
I can only deduce through theory that through manipulation of fear propaganda in film tactics and news such as end of the world movies, global warming, climate change, nuke weapon exchanges, threats from foreign countries, terrorism, unwillingness to compromise from leaders, etc. All of this in the viewers face staring them with the flashing blue haze of the television, computer or smartphone screen is subconsciously manipulating and triggering behaviors. Feeding a beast within, and I am here to say be aware and do not let this happen to you or your children.
