Subliminal Operant Conditioning
Subliminal Distraction, a normal feature in everyone's physiology of sight,
was discovered to cause mental breaks for office workers in 1964.
Three separate searches of the APA data base reveled no papers or research about it.
Subliminal Distraction happens when someone creates the "special circumstances" of long hours using full mental investment in a location with repeating detectable movement in peripheral vision. Everyone with normal sight will experience a peripheral vision reflex to startle, then turn and look at the subliminally detected movement. If the movement is safe, without thinking about it, we all ignore that movement thus blocking future reflexes.
But you cannot "stop seeing" anything in your vision field. What actually happens is that you assign a zero level of attention to the detected movement but you continue to subliminally see the movement and your brain continues to attempt to force the vision startle reflex.
This is explained in first semester psychology lectures on peripheral vision reflexes as a visual subliminal distraction.
The mental break causing design mistake takes the same name, Subliminal Distraction.
But if the metal break it has been known to cause since 1964 in the design field is mentioned it is treated as something that only happened once long ago. My instructor said, "Subliminal sight caused a problem in the early days of modern office design."
Instead its a part of everyone's physiology of sight available to happen anytime someone creates those "special circumstances" for exposure and exposure lasts long enough to cause psychiatric symptoms.
If exposure is low level so the mental break does not happen there is subliminally appreciated, unrecognized threat from repeating attempts to startle.
If your brain/mind experiences those subliminal threat sensations as a reward, operant conditioning happens.
Contemporaneous thought or actions are either rewarded or punished depending on how your brain understands the subliminal threat.
There was a case in China, reported on the CCHR website of a house painter becoming addicted to QiGong exercises. He could not stop gathering others to exercise with him even though he faced arrest from performing the exercise.
When groups of people perform QiGong slow motion martial arts katas in unison while using eyes-open meditation they must subliminally detect the movement of other participants in their peripheral vision. This must happen because it is hard wired into our physiology. You have no voluntary control of the brain system that does it.
QiGong is used to treat physical complaints. Participants are told to think of good health while performing QiGong exercises. They are unaware of the subliminal stimulation every time threat-movement is detected while the startle reflex is consciously blocked.
The thoughts of good health are reinforced by this subliminal stimulation when the brain understands that stimulation as a reward.
On the negative side, cults put people crowded together in small room while being lectured on cult beliefs. Why would new members suddenly give every thing they possess and even share wives among cult members? They accept cult beliefs because the are subliminally operant conditioned to do so. The cult does not understand why this happens. They learn crowding people close together then haranguing them for hours works, then repeat successful practices.
This is why radicalization to jihadist beliefs also work. Children are crowded together in small groups and lectured as a form of education in Muslim countries. This is a more intense form of Subliminal Distraction from the side-by-side seating in western schools.
Subliminal Distraction happening in classrooms can be shown with an incident in 14 Ontario, Canada elementary schools where industrial Wi-Fi was installed so laptop computers could be used anywhere in classrooms. Children began to have headaches, dizziness, racing hearts, memory loss, and would fall out, collapse, while just walking. Parents and activists blamed the Wi-Fi transmitter's EMR but pictures published by Canadian media showed the "special circumstances" for Subliminal Distraction were created when children used computers sitting in each other's peripheral vision without peripheral vision blocking protection, Cubicle Level Protection.
The focused mental concentration required to use a computer increased Subliminal Distraction in those classrooms to cause psychiatric symptoms.
In this picture the two girls cooperating cannot have Subliminal Distraction exposure. You can't subliminally detect something or someone in your conscious sight
Behind the two girls students are creating movement and other student react to that movement. But nothing happens when we successfully complete the vision startle reflex.
Subliminal Distraction begins when we learn to suppress the vision startle reflex, ignore threat-movement in peripheral vision.
In this picture hair combed to the side blocks peripheral vision preventing Subliminal Distraction.
But the out of focus girl in the back of the picture has no such protection.
This is why some have symptoms from Subliminal Distraction while others do not.
If you cannot suppress the vision startle reflex you are immune from exposure. Perform my demonstration of subliminal sight and habituation in peripheral vision to determine that. Demo
