In conjunction with David Oates I have conducted a preliminary experiment into the phenomena known as "backward masking". Preliminary analysis of information processing within the human brain has revealed two working hypotheses. 1. That brain activity alters significantly when backward masking (reverse speech) occurs. 2. That brain activity alters significantly in two different manners when different types of backward masking (reverse speech) are presented. I shall continue to explore the validity and implications of backward masking using brain wave analysis procedures in conjunction with David Oates in the near future.

David Oates brought his genius, skill and determination, displayed in his pursuit and development of Reverse Speech, to his therapeutic work. With his unique investigative tool, David is able to engage the therapeutic patient very rapidly and intensely. This can introduce rapid change quickly, even in chronic situation. I am proud to recommend my colleague and friend to those people who demonstrate the foresight to seek out David as a colleague or as a therapist and as a teacher.

It is with great pleasure that I provide a reference for David Oates. I met David over a year ago and since then have come to know him and his work quite well. Further, it has been a source of great satisfaction for me that I have been able to help David with financial backing and general support. I believe that his work is of the highest importance - breaking entirely new ground and with significant implications for the way we understand and utilize our human capacities for communication. These are large and sweeping statements, however, I speak from personal experience. David has carried out reverse speech sessions with all members of my family. The results have been extremely illuminating and they brushed aside any final vestiges of old-fashioned skepticism, which my engineering and commercial training caused me to carry. Equally, I have followed his work in association with counselors in Queensland, where the insights and messages uncovered during therapeutic sessions have been of great benefit. David is single-minded and relentless in his pursuit of the field he has developed. I have been struck by the fact that he never rests content with any new insight or addition to his technology. Every time that we speak, he seems to have something new to report. A year ago, David had evidence of Reverse Speech and various theories that he was pursuing. The progress he has made since then has been little short of staggering. I am delighted that groups in the U.S. are showing enthusiasm for David’s work. It is my view that it is highly important and I hope that he obtains whatever support is necessary to continue the development - and also ensure the wide dissemination - of the subject. Please do not hesitate to contact my if you need any further information.

David is at the point entirely satisfied that he has many, many examples to demonstrate the phenomena.......The notion that language can carry extra secondary and tertiary messages as well as the overt manifest content is well known to many of you who have studied the works of Dr. Erickson, where double and triple messages are the standard practise in such a device.

I have known David Oates for over a year. He has conducted numerous seminars or Reverse Speech where I was a participant. His presentation of his research has been highly interesting and, without doubt, unique. I have had several private sessions with David and discovered, through my own reversals, an enormous amount of material that was extremely helpful in my own personal growth. The interest in reverse communication research has been growing and it is fast becoming known internationally. To this effect I have invited David to present his work at the International Experiential Psychotherapy Conference to be held in Germany in 1990. I recommend highly David’s work. His extreme dedication to his research and publication of his results is promising a bright future for the betterment of individuals and society.

I refer to your request for advice on legal implications of Reverse Speech. I have heard your tapes and am personally satisfied that it does clearly exist..... It would seem quite clear that it is open to the police to use tapes to search for reverse communication which may help them with their investigations.....It seems it would have significance to finding out information of a sensitive political, military or industrial nature.... I think it is such a can of worms that it will be dutifully ignored by all and sundry with a desire that you will just go away and hide the research

Well you will be pleased to know that your interpretations of the Reverse Speech found on the television interview with a very high ranking corruption suspect have paid off. Using the information gathered a reporter was able to convey to the investigation team a possible location of some hidden assets of the suspect. Armed with this information and other leads the investigation team was able to identify a geographical location to investigate. They found substantial real estate property belonging to the suspect which he had earlier denied owning. Sorry about not being able to identify person involved however they are known to you. Congratulations David, it works. Hope to see you soon.

I have recently become aware of the groundbreaking work of Mr. David Oates in the field of "Reverse Speech". This is a form of communication lying completely outside conscious awareness. If it is validated - as I suspect it will be, after examining the evidence thus far - this discovery may prove to be of Nobel caliber. It is rare that a truly novel, creative, and profoundly important discovery is made in the field of human communication. These events are unusual, only a few in any century. Mr. Oates’ stunning findings seem to fall into this category. While one’s enthusiasm must be restrained as this idea is carefully elaborated and validated, it is difficult to not sense the excitement that is gathering around his unique work.

David John Oates has made one of the great discoveries of all time. He has proven that man’s true-Self speaks in reverse. He has documented and developed the art, science and philosophy of Reverse Speech. He is in a class with Thomas Edison, Nicola Tesla, Albert Einstein and Alexander Graham Bell. David John Oates, like Bell, shortly after he invented the telephone, is confronted by many who are excited about his great discovery but are still asking, ‘What practical use is it?’ I am amazed that anyone would ask such a question. My prediction is that Reverse Speech will revolutionize all aspects of human life. Most importantly, it will help us become truly congruent - saying what we mean and meaning what we say. This is the basis of integrity and real mental health. If anyone deserves world-wide recognition, it’s David John Oates. We owe him an enormous debt of gratitude.

In September, 1989, I began a study of Reverse Speech under the direction of Mr. David Oates. I was especially attracted to this field of study by the applications Reverse Speech has for counseling psychology. Using Reverse Speech as a tool to allow the client to communicate with self can significantly reduce the length of client therapy time. Reverse Speech will serve clinical psychologists as computers now serve statisticians. What is revealed in Reverse Speech, plus the use the counselor makes of it with the client, can help the client achieve a depth of self understanding never before achieved outside of some hypnosis. I have used Reverse Speech in counseling psychology and am very pleased with the results. Reverse Speech is a major breakthrough in communication brought about by rather recent technologies which promoted its discovery. Although Reverse Speech will revolutionize communication as it now exists, we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg. As the various levels of speech communication unfold through the work of David Oates and others, we are only beginning to understand the applications for this phenomenon. I will be happy to serve as a reference for Mr. Oates, and welcome inquiries about Reverse Speech.

Freud gave the world the subconscious mind, active and dynamic. Jung added levels to the subconscious/unconscious including the collective unconscious which connects all of us together at some level. Although generally accepted by most, Freud and Jung’s work are hotly debated constructs between psychologists today. The genius of researcher David Oates will not only serve as the bellows to increase the tension involved in the heated exchange between psychologists over the operation and existence of a subconscious/unconscious in the Jungian or Freudian sense, but it will ultimately serve as the force that will weld opposing views. The observational characteristics Oates has discovered cannot be ignored or denied any more than gravity or electricity---even if it takes science several years to work out a satisfactory model of the why’s and what for’s. REVERSE SPEECH [the book] is a revolution, a whole new paradigm, and may have more impact on history than any single book ever written!
Ph.D. PROGRESSIVE AWARENESS RESEARCH
My initial impression of Reverse Speech was one of intrigue. Many people within my medical practice had spoken to me before about their intuitive nature and how it had informed them on one level or another about events of daily life. For me, I was interested in the possibility of helping individuals through Reverse Speech uncover their deeply unconscious motives that may be guiding their particular patterns of behavior and illness. Thus, I cam to Reverse Speech with an open mind thinking of it as another possible tool in which to share with patients in their journey towards health. Not having had any prior acquaintance with David Oates, I embarked with my wife on an initial taping session to discover first hand what possibilities lie ahead. We shared basic day to day type concerns regarding office practice, marriage, etc.. David took this half hour taping and proceeded to spend the next three to four hours dissecting it in reverse. What he found and what he revealed to us as a result of our half hour conversation fascinated us. He began to speak about some of the unconscious reasons as to why things were happening. My wife and I did not discover anything radically new, but we were fascinated how a person who did not know us could be so insightful as to who we were. Thus, I began to share with patients my experience with this process called Reverse Speech and some began to look into themselves. They too experience, somewhat incredulously, the fact that Reverse Speech could unravel aspects of their inner psyche by merely listening to their tapes in reverse. Given the informational value of Reverse Speech, I then began to question the therapeutic possibilities of actually helping people break these unconscious patterns of behavior in their lives. David is working with this very thing and has spoken of helping individuals with various types of difficulties. Personally, I cannot comment as of yet as to the therapeutic value because I await the results and feedback of my patients. However, I am very excited as to what may lie ahead in Reverse Speech. Given the feedback and results I have seen thus far, I think great possibility lies within the realm of Reverse Speech.

As I reflect upon our professional relationship centered around Reverse Speech Therapy, I note the shared concern that up to this point its potential and capabilities have failed to be fairly assessed. You correctly assume a large part of this situation. It has been difficult for you concurrently to develop the technology and to protect it from a few who want to exploit it without giving you the credit you deserve and without apparent concern about the significant ethical issues involved in its use. While the gestation of Reverse Speech Therapy has been long, I urge patience and persistence in continuing the high road that you have selected to bring it into the mainstream of mental health and commercial applications. You have long recognized the important ethical issues inherent in its use. What we have all underestimated is the resistance to give this technology a fair assessment. This is, I suspect, the predictable fate of any new technology that threatens to have a profound impact on existing belief structures and behavior. The fact that it is simultaneously simple in application and penetrating in effect makes it appear suspect and dangerous. Don’t give up on it, focus your effort to a few important areas. There will be a day when it will be broadly used and its importance recognized and appreciated for the degree of truthfulness that it ushered into society.

The discovery of the phenomenon of speech reversals as a communication of thought from the unconscious mind could bring an historic change in the political and legal arenas. In politics, the additional information about a politician’s thoughts give n by speech reversals could alter dramatically the way that politicians conduct their election campaigns and other public speaking, and perhaps the typed of people who decide to enter politics. In the criminal justice system, speech reversals could be a powerful new tool for police and prosecutors, and for defense attorneys, to gain additional information in the investigative and trial stages of a criminal matter. In both civil and criminal litigation, the testimony given by witnesses is almost always crucial to the outcome of the case. If it comes to be widely accepted that speech reversals represent a means to obtain information from the unconscious mind that cannot be consciously altered or falsified, then hardly any major lawsuit will ever be tried without making the use of analysis of witnesses’ speech reversals. On the one hand, this may increase the cost of litigation. On the other hand, however, the increased ability of both parties to investigate the facts, and the greater pressure on witnesses to tell the truth because a falsehood may be more easily discovered, may in fact shorten many lawsuits, and may keep some lawsuits from ever being commenced. If speech reversals are what David Oates’ research seems to indicate - communication from the unconscious that can be understood with some degree of accuracy - then this discovery represents a tremendous advance in our knowledge of the human mind. Perhaps more importantly, the discovery will cause revolutionary change in the political and legal arenas, which lie at the heart of the manner in which we organize our society. All those who love truth will welcome that change.

Wow! What a discovery! Reverse Speech will completely change life... make that reverse life...as we know it. It allows no skirting of issues, no denial, no escape from reality. Reversals go straight to the core. It exposes our hidden unconscious programs, personality quirks and behavior patterns. It snaps us out of oblivion, finally giving us a choice of action again. In my opinion, there is no tool in existence that comes close to the perceptiveness or efficacy of Reverse Speech. David John Oates is a genius of our time. He has revealed the essence of individual and collective human nature. Anyone who chooses to use this tool when deciding on a business partner, employee or a course of action will have the winning edge. It is the ultimate Truth Detector. And if the world is ready for it, Reverse Speech will be used by the leaders and innovators in every field from psychology to medicine, business to law enforcement, athletics to the stage within the next few years. I firmly believe that anyone who doesn't use this tool will be at a great disadvantage in the twenty-first century.

First of all I want to thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your profound life changing concept. I had been introduced to the reserve speech concept by my best friend, hearing from my friend initially I was already blown away. In the back of mind I have been looking for a concept like this for some time but I never knew how and where to find it. When I started my session with David I positioned myself more to wealth manifestation and after session one I was totally surprised to find out what information I was holding onto in my unconscious mind. Once the session had ended I manifested 60,000 potential client list with names, phone numbers and email addresses! Also I have manifested a client who would like to work with us who has a fund up to £2 million and many more clients are starting to join our company! After my second session the new door has opened for me. I am just about to set up some new businesses which will generate seven figure revenue per annum. I cannot thank David enough for what he has done for me, I am truly truly grateful to you David to changing my life in such short space of time. This is the fastest way to manifest anything in your life using his reverse speech technique. I strongly recommend this to anyone who wants to improve their wealth, health, business, relationship or any aspect of life. This is a must do concept and will be life changing. Thank you David, God bless.

When I first started with David Oates my approach was hey it’s worth a try why not? I was running a business with my partner and although we had been fairly successful, life kept putting hurdles in our way, I was getting fed up of hitting the same brick wall. I’m actually a no fuss kind of person, I hate talking about my business or “sharing” with friends, I hate nagging or moaning at my husband. I needed to speak to someone but did not want a traditional councilor who would sit there, with no experience of what I was going through and most likely judge me. The great thing about talking with David is that it’s pretty much like handing someone a shopping list of all the things you want and a list of all the things you don’t want for him to take care of. It doesn’t always go exactly as you expect but the results are pretty close and always astonishing. Because I get to speak to him I’m not one of those miserable people who sits down the pub complaining about everything. In fact I’m a lot lighter and easier to be around because I speak with David on a regular basis. One secret is that he doesn’t always remember what you tell him, this is great because it doesn’t actually matter, what counts is the results he gets. If you told me years ago that talking with a reverse speech therapist would be essential for the building of my business I would have laughed in your face, if you ask me now I’d tell you that having David on call is one of the smartest work related choices I have ever made. However I do I believe in spirit, energy, vibrations and the subconscious if these thing make no sense to you, then David is not your man. If you think that there’s a small chance that the subconscious and your spirit effect how your world is shaped then give RST a try. Some people choose to see business advisers or consultants etc, I knew what I wanted to get from my business, I didn’t need someone else pointing things out to me, I needed someone who could get my subconscious out of the way so I could strive for and achieve the success I wanted and now continuously experience. Thanks for listening and reversing David!
