Prescriptive programming is a term introduced by Kham in a discussion about 9/11.[ab 1] She stated that the term predictive programming is not accurately describing the movies, series episodes and other artistic productions prior to 9/11, which aim to subliminally prepare the public perception for the upcoming event. These productions do not predict the event, they do actually display essential parts of the script of the event. Kham concludes therefore that these productions prior to the event pre-scribe the narrative, that will be propagandized by the media as the "truth" about the event - namely the script of the psyop.


As mentioned above the introduction of the new term prescriptive programming is based on the older term predictive programming. Predictive programming is an invention of Alan Watt who describes it as follows:

Predictive programming is a subtle form of psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes to be implemented by our leaders. If and when these changes are put through, the public will already be familiarized with them and will accept them as natural progressions, thus lessening possible public resistance and commotion.

Mike Wood makes the case that predictive programming is not at all about prediction:

"So that's the theory of predictive programming. At its heart, it's a psychological claim. So is it psychologically plausible?

I argue that the answer is no.

First, social learning theory shows that context is important when presenting something that’s meant to be a model for future behaviour. Second, the supposed outcomes of predicting programming seem to have nothing to do with the methods used. Third, the mechanisms by which predictive programming are supposed to work don’t make nearly as much sense as they seem to. Fourth, neurolinguistic programming, the most commonly cited psychological justification for why predictive programming could be expected to work, has been thoroughly discredited by research. Finally, predictive programming is not very good at actual predictions."
