This site is a project about a bizarre problem everyone has

that was discovered to cause still-believed-harmless mental breaks for office workers fifty years ago.


Most hearing of 'visual subliminal distraction' for the first time  cannot grasp                       

 that happening in the mind below thought, reason, and consciousness

                                             it is a normal but essentially unknown, feature of the physiology of human sight.




After you read the presentation and visit the linked incident/example pages

take a minute to think what you believe this common problem everyone has is.




Are you using a computer long hours at home on Twitter, Facebook? 

              Are you spending hour after hour playing video games while something moves in your peripheral vision?

    Do you text on a smart phone everywhere all day?


Are you having panic/anxiety attacks,              

 trouble sleeping, memory loss,  

                     repeating episodes of depression,    

                             psychosomatic medical symptoms,

                                                   or have you been diagnosed as bipolar?


Bookmark this page until you can read and learn why.

Using the information on this site will not interfere with any treatment you now have.

There is nothing to buy, no medication, therapy, diet, or treatment of any kind.



Although design engineers thought then, and still believe today that they

"caused the problem," what they actually did was create a set of

"special circumstances" to reveal that a

"mental break causing conflict in the physiology of human sight" existed.


That conflict is that although you can successfully ignore movement in peripheral vision,

thus suppressing the vision startle reflex when your brain assigns a zero level of attention to threat-movement, 

you can't stop subliminally seeing that movement.

(First-semester psychology, the physiology of sight.)

Explanation of physiology, Subliminal Distraction.



Today those "special circumstances" for visual subliminal distraction appear, unrealized in news reports,

in mass shootings, college suicides, and in incidents creating civil disturbances, police shootings. Brown, Ferguson

Understand, this problem is not a theory or Internet hoax.

There is a multi-billion dollar industry selling cubicles and Systems Furniture for open-plan offices

to prevent this little known "office worker" experience.


Complicating the issue is that engineers and manufacturers believe they are preventing

a flood of suits by treating the fact of the mental breaks as proprietary.

My flrst questions were blamed on legal research for a suit.  Design Question



Today computers allow anyone to create long hours of concentration
while there is repeating movement nearby in peripheral vision to cause
undetectable failed attempts to startle.

That repeating event is explained as a "visual subliminal distraction"
in first-semester psychology lectures on peripheral vision reflexes.
 But the mental break is rarely mentioned.

Casual informal computer use in homes and dorms with people,
pets, mirror reflections, fans, and other souces of detectable movement
guarantees that computer users will have Subliminal Distraction exposure.

Only a tiny number will have enough exposure to create psychiatric symptoms.
An even smaller number will manage to create exposure for the mental break.

But the stimulation of the amygdald during Subliminal Distraction,
can serve as subliminal operant conditioning to create bizarre beliefs
or desensitize video game players. SOC

Did you know?
The blind  (blind from birth)  do not have                                                              
                                                             panic/anxiety attacks, bipolar disorder, or schizophenia.    
There are cases of the mentally ill losing their sight.                                     
                                                                 The low sighted or legally blind do have psychiatric symptoms.
                                              But there are no cases of the congenitally blind, no neural impulses on the optic nerve, becoming mentally ill.  

Researchers unaware of Subliminal Distraction, a peripheral vision driven problem,
 do not investigate  it as the reason for the 100% concurrence.   Details         

                                                                                  Having trouble believing this?    Google blind schizophrenia.

Subliminal Distraction has always existed causing the same or more severe mental events through history.

The 1964 discovery was the first time it had happened in a situation under observation,

creating a problem that had to be solved.


In the entire history of man on planet Earth, it was discovered just that one time.

The psychiatric distress from Subliminal Distraction is the ONLY mental event with a known cause that has been prevented.

But it was done by engineers not doctors.


Every thing known or believed about mental illness was created without the knowledge that

visual subliminal distraction existed.



When you effortlessly, without knowledge of that action,  successfully suppress the vision startle reflex

to be able to continue work, or continue an activity such as playing video games without interruption,

you cannot prevent your brain continuing to subliminally, undetectably react to threat-movement

in peripheral vision by attempting to execute the consciously-forced-blocked reflex.


The stimulation of the amygdala during that undetectable attempt to startle which

with the trigger of movement and position information on the optic nerve, creates

the panicked surprise of 'threat requiring attention in peripheral vision'

eventually colors thought and reason with fear, panic, paranoia, and oppressive depression.


The design mistake is a physical location that can be copied to experimentally show

it causes anxiety leading to depressive ideation over a few days long hours of exposure.




 The onset of visual subliminal distraction can be safely experinced. demonstration   



Unaware Subliminal Distraction exists, mental health services will mistake the episodes for mental illness.

If significant exposure is timed so the episode spontaneously remits before the next exposure activity,

the repeating manic & depressive episodes would be mistaken for Bipolar Disorder.

My wife's episode was mistaken for schizophrenia.   (CT)

PREVENTABLE Subliminal Distraction conditions explain ICU Psychosis.  (ICU Psychosis)



Although a very few will accumulate enough exposure for the full mental break,

this site collects evidence that at lower levels of persistent exposure, psychiatric symptoms can be produced.




There is circumstantial evidence this is the long sought cause of college, youth, and service member suicides.



Although there is a multi billion dollar industry in the United States alone to prevent

the still-believed-harmless "office worker" mental break using cubicles, and Systems Furniture in open plan offices,

the public, mental health services, and research are unaware design engineers discovered, and solved the problem.


No one screens for Subliminal Distraction episodes before diagnosing mental illness.


Today computers and other digital view-screen devices allow anyone to create the "special circumstances"

of the "mental break causing design mistake" almost anywhere.

Repeat visitors skip intro.




Everyone has visual subliminal distraction exposure everyday.

That level of single isolated incidents is normal, and harmless.

Trouble begins when someone copies the "mental break causing design mistake"

where they work, use a computer on social media, or play video games.


That situation locks their brain into undetectable repeating failed attempts to startle,

every time threat-movement is detected in peripheral vision while they engage mental investment

deep enough so that they are consciously unaware of anything happening around them. 



The explanation I was given was that suppressing the vision startle reflex caused a conflict in the mind.

Long sessions of that suppression allow the conflict to build until the mental event happened.


There are no papers or studies about visual subliminal distraction episodes.

        I have been unable to find anyone to explain what happens in the brain

so that a massive number of failed attempts to startle           

in a compact time frame causes a psychotic episode.


My  working theory is that when the brain finds, recognizes  

 movement and position information on the optic nerve to trigger the startle reflex,

then attemps to understand it as vision, that attempt results in maladaptive brain reconstruction.


When exposure stops with appropriate rest,

the brain forgets the behavior and function returns to normal.


The basic facts of the physiology of sight are taught in first semester psychology.

The process is defined as a visual subliminal distraction.

If mentioned at all the mental break is treated as a historical note.



as exposure is happening IT IS UNDETECTABLE.



Begin by performing the demonstration of habituation of conscious sight in peripheral vision.


You will witness movement observed in peripheral vision vanish, pop out of your sight.


That is how Subliminal Distraction can begin, then happen undetectably.


The demonstration tests the ability to suppress the vision startle reflex.


If you cannot suppress the reflex, you cannot have Subliminal Distraction.

Are you Prepared  for a simple explanation, and revelation?


What is visual subliminal distraction?



Visual subliminal distraction is a normal feature of everyone's physiology of sight.

All that is necessary to allow the "special circumstances for the mental break

are full normal sight and the ability to suppress the vision startle reflex.


That means that everyone who ever lived had the physiology to allow visual subliminal distraction. 


All that is needed is one workplace,    one study area,    or today ...     one computer workstation.

This has been true through history.


Historical 'Culture Bound Syndromes' demonstrate that too-small, & single-room living arrangements

promote Subliminal Distraction.


The subliminally functioning brain system which would have evolved to prevent early humans being a meal for a predator

goes haywire when the situation is created so that the suppressed, blocked, startle

is attempted a massive number of times in a compact time frame.



This project begins searching history for events with mental breaks that can be investigated

for the "special circumstances" for Subliminal Distraction.



Those activities are QiGong, Kundalini Yoga, LGATS, ICU Psychosis,

and some Culture Bound Syndromes.


QiGong, and Kundalini Yoga supply a 2,400, and 3,000 year history of these mental events.

Certainly other high risk activities would have caused the problem through history,

as long as the activity fulfilled the  "special circumstances,"

and Subliminal Distraction lasted long enough.
