Rogue scientists hired by Coors Breweries are working on a way to pump advertising messages into your brain while you’re sleeping, so that you’ll buy their product while you’re awake (https://news.yahoo.com/nightmare-scenario-alarm-advertisers-seek-080045887.html?guccounter=1). They want to hijack your dreams.

They call it “Targeted Dream Incubation,” and they’re pretty sure they can make it work. Critics call it “weaponizing sleep”–against the sleeper–and warn that it might be done through “Alexa” units that the unsuspecting consumer already has in his bedroom.

The good news is that the Federal Trade Commission has the authority to ban this. The bad news is, how would we ever know they really did?

And what about what might happen if governments get their hot little hands on this technology? Wow: Democrats unanimously elected! And suddenly everyone is so obedient! The CDC wants to see what happens if they inject you with Gorilla Glue? Why, sure! Where do I sign up to volunteer?

Go ahead, tell me this stuff doesn’t come from the pit of Hell and smell of brimstone. I won’t believe you, but tell me anyway.

  1. Aldous Huxley predicted this in “Brave New World.” He also predicted populations being controlled by recreational drugs and sex. We may be moving closer to Huxley than even to Orwell. Or maybe a mix of both, which is even more ominous.

  2. I remember the concern about subliminal advertising when I was young. It got easier when television arrived as visual messages are much more potent than verbal ones. The biggest problem, however, is the fact that we’ve turned off our brains ~ at least the rational part ~ and so we are prey to this sort of mind game.

    1. Asked such a question, Alexa shrieks and vanishes in a puff of flame and smoke. Or maybe it begs to be allowed to enter into a herd of swine.
