Subliminal images - why and who are the individuals behind it?

    Dropoff's conclusion: "I think it likely that some of the 'faces' or whatever were not in the originals but were a result of the conversion to print."

    Maybe the images were manipulated by one or some the GB members just before going to print ???

    Oh the conspiracy continues.

    Hello, as an artist I don't purposely put in subliminals. But I do notice (sometimes) when a piece of art has something going on. Maybe the artist didn't like what they originally had or wanted something to work in the background. So it draws my attention.

    This has happened in a few pictures I've seen in the WT publications. It is unfortunate that my Mac is down because the pictures are on it and I have to use a crappy dell computer right now. Just a few of the pictures that I found recently are:

    A picture of Jehovah/jesus on a throne in the sky. A long row of angels from left to right. Behind the throne were several angels. It was this area that drew my eye. If you have a program like Photoshop or Photoshop elements, you can use "Levels" to darken and intensify the colors. Most WT pictures these days, are very light in saturation of color so if you intensify it, you can see detail that was washed out before. Well at first I thought that the artist had copied another section of the angels to save time and over lapped them. Because there was something showing up. But nothing in the rest of the picture had the same pattern or texture. To cut to the chase, one angel had a suspicious lump in his crotch area and the angel next to him, had his gaze fixated there with a rather leering smile on his face. Was this WT's doing? Probably not. Just an adolescent mindset getting away with something naughty.

    On an Awake magazine, there was a burning cigarette/cigar on the cover. Kim and Mikey were all excited over some phallic reference but they missed the main image. Smoke just doesn't look like how it was drawn on the cover. No matter how I traced out the swirls, they didn't make any sense. Sure, the artist could just be winging it but I gave it a try on photoshop. When you get done defining it, there are two distinct figures in the smoke. One had a different color tinge so they became separate. It is then easy to see the backside of a woman (naked of course) intertwined with a mans body. This one is more sophisticated than the one above. Is it a prank by an artist who knows about the tobacco industries love of sex/death for their advertising - or is it on purpose by the WT?

    It seems to me, that the more a company wants to be super clean and squeaky - ie WT, Disney, the more some artists want to prank them with something naughty. I don't leave out the possibility that WT does have some underhanded stuff going on, but I think the majority is rebellious artists.

    No, not those. It's newer. It goes across two pages. The angels are small at the left and get bigger as they go to the right. Like a wave on the beach. The throne is large on the right side with greens and blues. And I guess it supposed to be god on the throne because it is the crystal one

    I don't know how well they will come out. I just pasted from an email I sent. You can see the artist also had some fun with the "lights" above. just for fun. Sorry for the poor quality.

    I can't see much in the above image. Do you remember which publication it is in? If I have it I will check it out.

    WT are not smart enough to employ manipulative psychological tactics in their literature via overt and covert images and text ???

    Hmmm, let's see now.

    7mil+ multi generational membership.

    Multibillion dollar publishing house/real estate business/pseudo charity/"christian" religion and assorted side businesses.

    All this ^^^ in spite of

    over a century of numerous failed prohecies

    rules so harsh that people at best waste their lives at worst die or let their child die, or go to jail for this religion

    WT like any successful business that has longevity IS that smart.

    SV - Sorry I can't remember the exact WT. But I did send it in an email 12-2-2016. So sometime before that. And as you see in the first picture, it is very light so you have to darken it or intensify the colors. I like seeing how the artist has a lot of details that got washed out by the pastel approach of the WT. Like, can you really see the rays going past the head in the light version? Not really.

    I looked at the 4 horsemen picture but that one is bereft of any hidden/add pictures. Hahaha maybe the WT ferrets out the artists that play around like that. Wonder what the punishment is?

    By the way, doesn't it look like Abe Lincoln's statue? And what are those projections in the back of the throne? Extra plasma vents?

    This was in a 2014 1/15 wt. It is either the workup for this picture, or edited. But you can see it is the same throne shape and I think all of the lines are above his head. Still looking for the main article.

    Jehovah God ruling from his heavenly throne

    Wow, they like to reuse these things over and over. This is the 2017 wt. Maybe they realized there was a problem with the angels...

    Jehovah’s throne

    Quote from Cofty:

    That is a very strange statement. Surely the WT traces its roots to the 19th century Protestant Adventist movement.That is a very strange statement. Surely the WT traces its roots to the 19th century Protestant Adventist movement.

    Aye, that is so. All Protestant movements originated with Roman Catholicism and, unfortunately, retained many, many of its false beliefs. The WTBorg continue to propagate these same false beliefs even today. There is in fact, little difference between WT teachings and MainLine Christendom teachings. Especially those teachings relating to "money" and "tithes." Mammon has become the "New Master." They (WTBorg) have brought themselves into alignment with the proposed "One World Religion" as it attempts to obliterate the Really Good News of The Word. These Strange Times are getting very strange indeed!
