Gestalt Memetic ID Bridge, Mark II, A How-To Tutorial

WARNING:  I take no responsibility for what happens if you try this.  Use this method at your own risk.

The concept of a memetic bridge is to use images and tricks of light to bypass critical thinking and allow suggestions to flow through to the subconscious mind.  Mind you, this is still a work in progress, and I am sharing that progress with you, this is still in beta, so any input would be appreciated.

For this example, we will be allowing the creative mind to create a "composite."  That is, taking data from various sources and assembling a useful and/or desired meme, for the purposes of using this as a "homing signal" to locate an astral lover.

What you will want to do, initially, is gather images, of people who you find attractive.  Don't just pay attention to their looks, but what they communicate about personality through the image.  A picture is worth a thousand words.  Also, if you feel inspired to add a few additional images to communicate intent, or places you would like to spend time with them, feel free.  Remember you are speaking to the creative mind, and if creative mind is telling you where to go, treat that as a helping hand rather than a hindrance.

Once you feel that you have enough images to create a composite key, you will want to make a few changes to the images.  For the purpose of this tutorial, I have used GIMP, a freeware image editor, been around forever and is perfect for what we are doing here.  Any graphics program will do, however.

You can find GIMP here;

Let's say you wanted to go on a cab ride with your astral date, taking in all the sites of Dreamville.  Here we have an image;

First off,we'll want to adjust the height to about 640 pixels.  Don't worry, the slide show program you use should have an option the stretch the image to the screen, if it doesn't do it automatically.

Then, we'll want to distort the image slightly, make it "fuzzy."  Critical mind likes straight, clear lines.

Do this in GIMP by going to Filters > Distorts > Ripple

Set antialiasing, horizontal orientation, wrapped edges, sine waveform, with a period of 5 and a amplitude of 10.  Adjust to taste, of course.  Here is what you should end up with;

Kind of hard to look at, isn't it?  That's probably because your critical mind is asking you "What the F*** is this?" and has to work harder to make out what it is. That's okay, because we're not done yet.

Now you'll want to go to Colors > Colorize

Adjust color to taste, for astral lover, I used orange for the sacral chakra.  Now turn Saturation WAAY up for vivid color, or adjust to taste, if you don't like vivid colors.  Your creative instincts take priority over instruction.  Here is what you should end up with in the preview window;

By now, your critical mind should be hurling in the corner.  Yes, it's rejecting the image, but the goal is to make it think the image doesn't even exist.  Here's what we want to do.

The critical mind and creative mind have different sensory thresholds.  The creative mind has a larger threshold.  If we can find the "sweet spot" between just below where the critical mind recognizes an image, and just above where the creative mind recognizes an image, right in between these two points is where we want to be, the twilight zone. (No pun intended.)

We achieve this by adjusting the Lightness aspect WAAAY down, so that it is just barely visible, or you can just barely make out the image (bear in mind you will be ideally viewing this with no light source in the room except the monitor.)  The finished product should look like this;

This actually appears a bit lighter than it should be, for illustration purposes.  If you hit the sweet spot, your critical mind should be slouched over on the sofa, recovering, while your creative mind still recognizes the image.  Bingo!

By the way, I've noticed this same effect applies to music or other audio, which I think would be another interesting experiment, to create an audio memetic bridge.  When I have music playing in the background, laying on my bed, if it's right in the twilight zone, where I can hear the music playing and someone singing, but I can only make out the beat, can't make out what notes are being played and what is being sung, the critical mind doesn't pick it up, and sometimes the creative mind compensates by trying to imagine what is being played and sung.  In effect, I hear an entirely different song.

Of course the critical mind eventually figures out something is going on and does the math to get the song right.  And this is the issue I am trying to deal with, find a way that the creative mind can recognize something while the critical mind is oblivious, or make it so hard to try, that the critical mind just gives up trying after a while.  This is why I make the image monochrome and apply a ripple effect to it, rather than simply just dimming the image.

Now place these images in a folder, and create a slideshow full screen.  Turn all the lights off.  Go to sleep, if you can see your monitor from your bed like I can.  You can directly look at the images, I usually just let it play off in my outer field of vision.  If you can, play some trippy music at a volume you can just barely hear for added effect.
