I opened a gay/rag and was astonished to see this odd term referencing the Virus Imagined Human.

It presented a lot of Spanish words to describe what looks like HIV treatment, PrEp, and such.

The term VIH reminds me of so called “Satanic” backmasking made popular by The Beatles.

Anti-backmasking legislation was actually proposed to protect the public.[2]

Reminds me of California’s attempt to make porn stars all wear condoms to protect the public (which failed to pass).

Backmasking was alleged to be contained in the song “Stairway To Heaven”.

Here is a sample of that song played backwards

Here is what the CDC website presents:


Now let’s watch the overlay of a version of Stairway To Heaven on top of Gilligan’s Island introduction.

This is an example of editing and overlays in moving images and sound.

Reel to reel tape recorder was used for backmasking. Here is more backmasked words and sounds.
