SUBSCRIPTIONS & BACK ISSUES 72
    • EDITORIAL At last the magazine is finished, and boy what an episode this issue was. First, I want you all to appreciate that this issue lis actually out on time for a change! This ,is despite the flooding and subsequent move of house and office (note new phone and fax numbers only) and associated running around. Once again I would like to thank everyone invo:lved w;ith this issue, from the writers Ito the helpers, to the advertisers and the readers. Thanks to you alii, Nexus is now on sate across New Zealand (hello all you Kiwis), and we are now sending quite a lot to America too. The demand for the information in Nexus seems to get stronger each issue. Speaking of issues, this one has a couple of great artides. Pity the photos in the Subliminal Advertising artide were not able to be reproduced lin colour, because you would be able to discern the relevant images more clearly. Apart from the move and the floods, we have had a few visitors af late (not that I associate visitors with disasters). Among these was a friend of mine, recently r,e-elected to the ACT Legislative Assembly {much W the annoyance of the major political parties). He also stands up for the truth, and as a result is often targeted for slander and "character assassination". Despite all the attacks he maintains a charmingly positive mental attitude, and basically operates on the premise that pdliticians are elected by the people, to represent the WILL of the people. You can appreciate his colleagues in Parliament do not appreciate being reminded that they are supposed to serve the people, not the other way around as it has become. In fact his colleagues are REALLY annoyed that he was re-elected, so watch for some more flak. The reason I bring this up in the editorial, is not just to give a free plug and congratulate Dennis Stevenson, but to point out the relationship between taking responsibility for our lives on a personal level and on a national level. What I am saying is that we the people, do not take responsibility for who we vote in. We should vote in candidates who desire to represent the will of the people in each electorate, and if they do not do what we ask, get rid of them. But more often than not we are only too happy to whinge about the mess the government has gotten us into. Correct, it is a mess, but we voted in the mugs who let it get messed bJP didnt we. I wonder how much worse things will get before we, the people, decide enough is enough!

What bypasses the conscious mind on its way UlIO the subcooscious we are much more likely to deal with in an uncritical fashion - and thereby carry QUt the inslrUctioos or suggestions subliminally communicated to us. Dr. N.F. Dixoo, a British psychologist, author of Subliminal Perception (which according to one ad agency president is their "operatiooal bible"), wrote: "It may be impossible to resist instructions which are not consciously experienced. There would seem to be a close parallel between these phenomena and those associated with, on the on:e hand,poslhypnotic suggestioo and, on the other, neurotic compulsive responses." Practically applied, subliminal communication can be very llseful to anyone who wanted to secretly manipulate the behavior of another. When its used to seduce you into unconsciously buying, consuming, subscribing, auending, voting for the "right" candidate, remaining loyal to your brand of cigarettes or true to your favorite Scotch whiskey, its called, subliminal seduction." Dr. Wilson Bryan Key, a psychologist with extensive experience in communications and advertising research, has published three popular books on subliminal manipUlation: Subliminal Seduclion, Media Sexploilalion, and Th£ Clam-Plale Orgy. In most instances, the manufacturers are totally unaware that subliminal advertising is being used to sell their products. In fact, many employed by the advertising industry are similarly unaware. But while the ad industry claims they are guiltless - whiter than white - it appears that some in their I3nks are blacker thiln black. Judge for yourself. Study the Kanon advert for a moment (next page)... According to Dr. Keys students, this ad appeared in so-called mens magazines, such as PentMuse and Playboy. How does it make you fed?

    • Study the area where the base of the thumb meets !he wrist in the lower, left-nand quadrant of the ad. Notice the two rather bulbous areas at the base of the hand which happen to resemble testicles. The rigid thumb resembles a semi-erect penis. What you are looking at is a two sided il1usioo, which is a hand on ooe side and a male genital on the other. It is interesting to note that !he underside of a wrist does not have th3t much hair on the skin. Now you might be thinking, "OK, so they put a male genital ill Ibe picture ... if you want to see it that way. So what? How docs that influence sales, even if it is repressed in the subconscious?" To answer that, lets examine what else is in the picture and ask a few questions like, "What is a picture of an erect penis doing in a mens magazine?" Dr. Key explains, "The symbolism is predictable repressible, in view of readersmacho self-fantasies. The over macho image i~ often considered a camoufla-ge for a more ambiguous, covert sexuality, and a large amolint of psychoanalytic Itheory suggests !he illusions appeal is directed at latent homosexual tendencies - which all men presumably share in ,some measure.

They have to confme themselves to the old story of ,how James Cook (1770) discovered our east coast, although the Dutch visited our west coast fully 164 years before tllat date. In fact, the eafliiest sketchy outline of a great southern continent can be found upon one of a number of carved stone world maps preserved in Iran, carved by Persians up to 3,000 years ago.

Nevertheless, he anticipated Columbus discovery of America by Captain James Cook! more than 16 centuries and! the discovery by European seamen of Australia 17.5 centuries later.

But how pure is the water we drink and are the chemicals used to purify it serving paradoxically to contaminate it? Unless we are fortunate enough to live in an unpolluted rural environment collecting our own water (or have affixed some type of water purifier to our tap), the peculiar odour and taste of the liquid in our glass stand as persistent reminders that the water we drink contains chemicals. Generally, the most noticeable of these is chlorine. We have come to accept the presence of chlorine in oQr drinking water as one of the necessary, though slightly unpleasant aspects of maintaining community health. Somewhere along the way, most of us have leamed that a number of contagious diseases such as typhoid and cholera have been virtually eradicated by filtering and chlorinating our municipal water supplies. The crucial question which many of us never learned to ask, however, is whether chlorinated water represents a health hazard in its own right. In what follows we shall urge that in the light of recent research on t.I1e subject, it is clear that water treated with chlorine should be regarded as potentially detrimental to the health of the community. WHAT IS CHLORINE AND HOW DOES IT WORK? Thee Australian bicentenary year, 1988, marked the centenary of water chlorination. In 1888 a patent on chlorination of w<tter was granted to Dr. Albert R. Leeds, professor of chemistry at Stevens Institute of Technology, Hobokin, New Jersey. Professor Leeds showed that chlorine could be used as the basis of a method of disinfection to contr.oI pathogens responsible for waterborne diseases.

If a range of these substances are present in One theory of how chlorine worles suggests that there is a the water even in minimal quantities, they may create a physiochemical reaction between chlorine and the structural chlorine demand which significantly reduces the available proteins of the ba,cterial microbes, thus causing the chlorine for germicidal purposes. Consequently, disintegration of their cell walls. Another popular theory chlorination is usually accompanied by filtration to reduce holds that the process of disinfection works by inhibiting a the IYresence of substances which may create excessive key enzymatic process which oxidizes the glucose of the chlorine demand. cell; the bacterial cells die, that is to say, because the ChlQrine is notorious for its pungent and disagreeable chlorine destroys the oxidation process upon which the cells odour.

Being a toxic substance, it is capable of causing major congestion of lung tissue and even death if breathed in sufficient ----- -" quantities. The odour and taste of chlorinated water may be produced by the presence of excess chlorine or strangely, it may also occur if insufficient chlorine has been added. In the latter case the characteristic odours and taste are produced when chlorine reacts with organic matter such as algae in Ithe water. When stronger chlorine levels are used, the organic matter in the water is destroyed completely, and the result is water which is virtually odour free. From the fact that water odour is minimal it would thus be misleading to conclude that chlorine levels are low and vice versa. THE POTENTIAL HEALTH RISKS FROM CHI!.ORINATED WATER It i.s amazing to think that a very reactive and poisonous chemical could be deliberately added to public drinking water without an extensive study of the possible harmful health effe_cts being carried out beforehand.

How was it that, in the precinctS ruled by the "arbiters of knowledge", the evidencing of "unknown" things, instead of being viewed with excitement, was often castigated as "illusory" or tabooed as "fantasy"? In 1965, I came across an article that mare than just attracted my writers attention in that, in 1944, it was published in, not just one, but two prestigiQus journals, that of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. and that of the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. One lthirdl ofits contents was devotedto the new electron microscope just put on the market by the Radio Cor,poration of America, the other two thirds, the lions share, to a "Universal Microscope" that had been designed and developed in the 1920s by a Californian autodidact, Royal Raymond RUe.
