reverse speech
May 29, 2001 7:01 AM   Subscribe

reverse speech "This form of communication can be heard if human speech is recorded and played backwards. Once every five or ten seconds very clear and precise phrases occur.
Reverse speech is the voice of truth and it is complementary with forward speech. The two modes occur simultaneously yet are formed in different areas of the mind. Simply, forward speech is from the left brain and Reverse Speech is from the right brain. "

...er, I mean, maybe The Skeptics Dictionary would be a good place to start when considering alternative ideas like this.

As Mark Mothersbaugh has pointed out, the phrase "Jesus loves you", when played backwards, sounds a lot like "We smell sausage." That silly right brain!

As is typical with 'backward messages,' I couldn't understand what any of them said until I read what I was supposed to hear.

Hey, at least these messages aren't evil and satanic like the 80s version of this meme.

That gum you like is going to come back in style. Sometimes my arms bend back.

There's also a great page about S Club 7 (teen pop "band" from the UK) and their "hidden" satanic back-masked lyrics.

But then, his skeptic bone is kind of dull (though, interestinly he had Richard Hoagland on the other night and said outright that he did not see a face on Mars).

I'm maintaining a healthy degree of scepticism on this one!
