Throughout history one could learn about another being only and solely through observation of their behaviour, in particular, through the spoken language. Language is how we get the most information. The roles of subconscious mental processes were developed worldwide on the basis of theoretical concepts using psychoanalytic observations. Many of these ideas experimentally were proven to be true. At the end of the past century and the beginning of the present century, methods of associative experimentation were introduced that allowed scientists to use elements of the subjective analysis of verbal response, meaning we can learn about you by observing how you respond. Researchers investigated the semantic essence and time needed for the realisation of human expression in response to a semantic probe. We learned about the nature and art of how people understand and respond to meaningful information.
In the middle of the twentieth century new methods were developed that allowed connecting cognitive processes with the physiological one, where sets of semantic stimuli were presented to subjects and physiological reactions were recorded. Measuring reactions, we learned how we think and the way we transmit the thought into responses are connected.
Now, in the digital age, where even a simple laptop computer is capable of speedy analysis of large data files, the time has arrived to create adaptive algorithms to investigate a multitude of questions connected to the role of subconscious processes in the human psyche. If we can gain a greater understanding of how the mind works, it would benefit the entire human race.
The fundamental basis defining such research is a modern understanding of the role of semantic factors in processes of everyday life. Because semantic stimuli are mediated mainly by the psyche, clearly the role of semantically modulated signals in the process of evolution of the psyche increases. The system of semantic symbols is mainly a verbal type. The concept of “semantic” in general extends to any stimulus that can be differentiated mentally and is capable of causing any other type of reaction except orientation reaction. The last is possible in the event that in mental spheres there is a set of semantic elements among which there are the elements similar with some of the characters of analyzed stimulus. These similar elements define semantics, i.e. meaning-stimulus. In the process of growth of the individual and accumulation of individual experience (information), the number of stimuli which can be considered as “non semantic” and which are capable of causing only orientation reaction sharply decreases.
We are developing technologies based on the above information and a simple philosophical approach. Humans are the product of information from their surrounding environment. Any traits, influences, abilities, etc. are described and experienced through words, pictures or sounds. They are categorized and prioritized by emotions throughout one’s life. The major content of the human’s informational being is inaccessible to his/her consciousness. It belongs to the subconscious mind. Humans will subconsciously react to words, pictures or sounds associated with their emotions. This is not dependent on the age, gender, colour or language of the person. Consciously, humans will try to interfere or hide these reactions. SSRM Tek allows one to measure human subconscious effects without the influence or even knowledge of the conscious mind.
Let’s consider the brain as a separate body part intended only to manufacture a thought just as a stomach aids digestion or the liver produces bile.
Functional tests of the liver are carried out by introducing into the organism insignificant quantities of a specific substance, for example thymol, and investigating how quickly and how much of this substance is directly, or by transformation, removed by the liver from said organism.
What would be a direct analogy of the functional test for the brain? The semantic stimuli are substratum specific to the brain. An example of a semantic stimulus is a word. Observable reactions and/or conditions or behavioural changes are measurable responses to semantic stimuli.
In both cases the body and the brain are studied by a principle of a black box, where the input is a testing stimulus and the output is the result accessible to registration – processing of the stimulus.
The primary “censor” of the human mind – its psychological protection mechanisms “turn on” each time a person consciously responds to a researchers questions. This is similar to a situation where the doctor examines a patient with an acute abdominal pain. In such cases, palpation of the abdominal wall may provide information about the wall’s condition only, not about the condition of the internal organs. At this time, due to the pain inside the abdomen, a specific protection from external influence is in operation. The same takes place in the human mind.
Though modern society puts physical beauty and strength on a pedestal, the realisation is quite clear that today’s human is an informational being and therefore should be treated as such. It means that the human psyche can be tested and treated with words as physical illnesses can be tested and treated with chemicals.
Unmanageable amounts of information and decision making attack every moment of every humans’ life. 20% of people will personally experience a mental illness in their lifetime. How do we deal with the psychological issues faced by every fifth person in the world? Psychologists are trying to help people confronted by issues. Thousands of self-help courses are doing the same thing. How can it all be achieved without methodologies that measure human psyche?
We at NPT devote our energies to developing technologies that test and re-teach people subconsciously so their issues can be dealt with effectively and people can live healthy and productive lives.
