If 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.


The 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.

This is interesting but I'm not entirely convinced of how accurate these reversed clips are. On the website, they slow them down and they also give you something to listen for in the clip, which naturally makes you try to hear it when you play the clip. I tried playing the clips in reverse without reading what I was supposed to be hearing first and I didn't hear anything that made sense the first time, hear the right thing the second time, and heard something different the third time.

on the radio show coast to coast am, they had an expert on this as a guest one time. he played a bunch of stuff our president said and then played it in reverse. turns out he was lying through his teeth. a very cool phenomenon.

I agree with you egyptspy and thats why I suggested recording your own voice. That way you dont know what it is that you're looking for so its less likely that you'll be led.
Anyway I just wanted opinions on this. Always interesting to know what people think.

Dont believe everything you read or hear. Try to find out for yourself.

Mr Oates claims that it takes a bit of training to actually hear sensible words among the gibberish.
