Television sets and computer monitors can manipulate your nervous system, A 2001 patent shows.
[Nervous system manipulation by electromagnetic fields from monitors (Number: 6506148)]
Computer monitors and TV monitors can now be made to emit weak low-frequency electromagnetic fields merely by pulsing the intensity of displayed images. Experiments have shown that the 1/2 Hz sensory resonance can be excited in this manner in a subject near the monitor. The 2.4 Hz sensory resonance can also be excited in this fashion. Hence, a TV monitor or computer monitor can be used to manipulate the nervous system of nearby people.”
“It is thus apparent that the human nervous system can be manipulated by screen emissions from subliminal TV image pulses.”
Is this technology already being used on the public?
