is Reverse Speech?
has been called the discovery of the 7th sense. The research into
this phenomenon has been described as being of "Nobel calibre".
It has been featured in numerous publications around the world,
and in the United States it became a household name in the late
90s. It is called Reverse Speech, the phenomenon of hidden backward
messages in speech. It initially gained worldwide fame in the
early 80s as those strange backward messages in rock and roll.
Since that time, research has progressed significantly and it
is now known to exist in all forms of human speech.
human speech is recorded and played backwards, mixed amongst the
gibberish at regular intervals can be heard very clear statements.
These statements usually appear in short sentence form and are
nearly always related to the forward speech. It appears constantly
throughout language, so much so in fact, that it is believed to
be a natural part of our speech processes.
pioneer and 20 year veteran of this field, Australian David John
Oates, describes Reverse Speech as another form of human communication.
He states that language is bi-level, forward and reverse. As the
human brain constructs the sounds of speech, it forms those sounds
in such a way that two messages are delivered simultaneously.
One forwards, which is the conscious mind speaking, and the other
in reverse, which is the unconscious mind speaking.
applications of this discovery are exciting. On the surface level,
it can act as a sort of Truth Detector as Reverse Speech will
usually correct the inconsistencies of forward speech. If a lie
is spoken forwards, the truth may be communicated in reverse.
If pertinent facts are left out of forward speech these may also
be spoken in reverse. It can reveal hidden motive and agenda and
other conscious thought processes. At deeper levels, Reverse Speech
can reveal thought patterns that are unconscious, including reasons
behind behaviour and disease. This information can be used to
greatly enhance the therapeutic and healing processes.
still a new and emerging field, Reverse Speech is already making
its mark felt in many areas. It has been used successfully in
business negotiations and corporate mergers as means of providing
extra information. In the state of Oregon, it has been used in
criminal investigation and its results independently verified
by DNA testing in one case.
Speech has now come back to Australia, where it was initially
discovered. If you are looking for a new and challenging career,
you might want to consider training and becoming one of the pioneers
of this field. If you have an important decision to make or behavioural
issue you want address, Reverse Speech may be able to help you
Theory of Reverse Speech and Speech Complementarity.
Human speech has two disctinctive yet complementary functions
and modes. The Overt mode is spoken forwards and is primarily
under conscious control. The Covert mode is spoken backward
and is not under conscious control. The backward mode of speech
occurs simultaneously with the forward mode and is a reversal
of the forward speech sounds.
(2) These two modes of speech, forward and backward, are dependent
upon each other and form an integral part of human communication.
One mode cannot be fully understood without the other mode.
In the dynamics of interpersonal communication, both modes
of speech combined communicate the total psyche of the person,
conscious as well as unconscious.
(3) Covert speech develops before overt speech. Children speak
backwards before they do forwards. Then, as forward speech
commences, the two modes of speech gradually combine into
one, forming an overall bi-level communication process.
