The Truthiness Of Chuck Lorre Vanity Card # 326

July 23, 2011 at 4:03 pm Leave a comment

The paragraph at the bottom of this posting was written by the producer of (among other t.v. shows) “The Big Bang Theory” and “Two And A Half Men”, Mr. Chuck Lorre.  It can be found on the web site where the vanity cards which are briefly (+/- a second or so) seen at the end of each of his shows are stored, and can be viewed by clicking on this link:

It seems that Mr. Lorre, in spite of being as brilliant as a guy can be, never heard of the “Voice Stress Analysis”  device, or VSA as it was referred to. This was a system that produced, more or less, the same results as the brain scan technology he mentions, but without a need for close proximity to the one being tested for what Steven Colbert often refers to as “Truthiness”.

It only took an audio recording or a little real time audio monitoring of a persons voice stating something as the truth, and it worked by testing for variations in the vibrations or the frequencies in those spoken words, comparing the subtle micro changes in voice tones in that sample from those produced by the same subject previously having said something that was obvious or known to be true, such as the date, the day of the week, the color of a car, whatever.

If you’ve ever heard the old stories about the patents given for a miraculous device that would enable a car to run on water being bought up and buried by the oil industry, as crazy as those stories might have been, it should give you a leap off point as to why, except for an occasional reference in sci-fi films or in a C.I.A. or N.S.A. environment in a procedural sort of t.v. show, the original machine simply vanished from the face of the earth. Can you even imagine the result of printed out VSA test of of a speech by Michele Bachmann or Eric Cantor?  No more spoken opinions would be heard from any politician, only print outs, perhaps this explains the complete silence from Clarence Thomas on ANY subject. A bit of research shows that low cost commercially produced variants of the VSA, perhaps with questionable results, are being made and reaching the market, google this and maybe the truth will set you free.

The list of usual suspects from governmental agencies to those in the legal profession (Yes, more or less the same beast) who could not survive without the ability to lie aloud to the public is endless.

Hey it’s not like I would lie to you, certainly not where it could be recorded.

Here’s the original Chuck Lorre quote mentioned at the top of the post:

“In the near future, we will see brain scan technology that can determine, without fail, if someone is telling the truth. Shortly thereafter, we will be able to buy mobile devices that perform the same task on the fly. In other words, we are on the verge of having all of our conversations constantly and instantly monitored for veracity. This would then spawn a counter-technology comprised of personal mind shields that keep oneself from being scanned (the use of which would, of course, imply that one is keeping secrets). The end result? Universal honesty, initially as a result of the duress of surveillance, will become the norm. Then, over time, this mode of thinking, communicating and behaving will become second nature. This will usher in the dawn of a new civilization. After thousands of years of human suffering, world peace and the long-fabled ‘good will towards all men’ will have finally arrived. The end of lying and cheating will also mark the end of scripted entertainment. So, you know, there’ll be a downside.”
