U.S. Patent US6506148 Is Hacking Into Your Nervous System Via Plasma/LCD Screens
At some point in the early 21st century all of mankind was united in celebration….we marveled at our own magnificence as we gave birth to AI. A singular consciousness that spawned an entire race of machines. We don’t know who struck first, us or them but we know it was us who scorched the sky. Throughout history we have been dependent on machines to survive, fate it seems is not without a sense of irony”

Computer monitors and TV monitors can be made to emit weak low-frequency electromagnetic fields merely by pulsing the intensity of displayed images. Experiments have shown that the ½ 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.
The implementations of the invention are adapted to the source of video stream that drives the monitor, be it a computer program, a TV broadcast, a video tape or a digital video disc (DVD).
