Hidden Text

This hidden message is stored at 0x079D:

MOMMY AND ME      ARE ONE.

This is a reference to an experiment that took place in 1985. The experiment was meant to study the effects of subliminal messages on the unconscious mind. The phrase "Mommy and I are one" was alleged to be effective in raising self-motivation.
