Have you ever heard of the patent that is supposed to confirm the fact that a television can manipulate a person’s nervous system? There isn’t a lot of info out there to find about the person who supposedly filed the patent, Hendricus G. Loos, despite the easily observable fact that he has filed for multiple patent applications, and he has experienced success in those endeavors.
The patents deal with apparatuses associated with the manipulation of the human nervous system via something like a television monitor, or a computer screen.
In the abstract of the patent, he explains first that physiological effects have been clearly observed in a “human subject” who was given stimulation of the skin with weak electromagnetic fields pulsed with certain frequencies ranging from 1/2 Hz to 2.4 Hz. Keep in mind, compared to the frequency Internet runs on, 2.45 GHz, these frequencies are incredibly low. Internet runs on 2,400,000,000 Hertz, that’s 2.45 GHz.

However, people who claim to find no potential danger in use of cell phones or Internet also cite the fact that it’s the power put behind the frequency, the amplitude, the amount of that frequency being beamed out, that determines what it’s effect will be.
For example, food is microwaved at what frequency? 2.4 GHz: we literally microwave our food at the exact same frequency that our Internet runs on. Guess what? They want to raise that frequency even higher, to frequencies in the millimeter wave band that are actually known in government studies to cause symptoms like immune system dysfunction in rats, referring to the 35 GHz frequency.
The patent continues to explain that when several computer monitors and TV tubes are displaying pulsed images, they emit pulsed electromagnetic fields of “sufficient amplitudes to cause such excitation.”
So the patent clearly addressed the amplitude issue, the power factor, and confirmed that the frequencies emitted by these at least older screens were strong enough to affect people.
“It is therefore possible to manipulate the nervous system of a subject by pulsing images displayed on a nearby computer monitor or TV set,” the patent point blank tells everyone to their face.
The patent even continues to suggest how this could be done, suggesting that the image pulsing on the screen might be embedded in the program on television, or it could be overlaid in perhaps an even more insidious way, via a video stream’s modulation either as a video signal or an RF signal.
It explains that the image displayed could be effectively pulsed by a simple computer program when it comes to a computer screen, and on certain monitors, pulsed electromagnetic feels with the full capability of exciting sensory resonances in “subjects” could be generated, even while the images are pulsed with “subliminal intensity.”
Then, comes possibly the most disturbing part. The patent says: “Certain monitors can emit electromagnetic field pulses that excite a sensory resonance in a nearby subject, through image pulses that are so weak as to be subliminal. This is unfortunate since it opens a way for mischievous application of the invention, whereby people are exposed unknowingly to manipulation of their nervous systems for someone else’s purposes. Such application would be unethical and is of course not advocated. It is mentioned here in order to alert the public to the possibility of covert abuse that may occur while being online, or while watching TV, a video, or a DVD.”
Someone from a distance, could choose to flash a certain type of subliminal thing on your screen and make you angry or feel a certain way for a reason you don’t even understand: that’s the conclusion one might draw from reading this patent.
