Visual subliminal distraction can change the outcome of mental event studies

if there are Subliminal Distraction victims either relapsing or remitting

in the control or study group.



This site is about a little known problem design engineers found

 and solved fifty years ago when it caused still-believed-harmless

panicked episodes of confusion for knowledge workers in business offices.



Believing the episodes and problem limited to incorrectly designed large offices,

there is a multi-billion dollar industry to prevent the "office worker"

mental event using cubicles or Systems Furniture in open-plan offices.


The public, mental health services, and research are unaware

such a problem does or could exist.

No one screens for it before diagnosing mental illness.



Instead of causing the 1964 mental breaks as they still believe happened,

design engineers failed to understand they created a set of "special circumstances"

to reveal a mental break causing conflict in the physiology of sight existed.


That conflict is that although you can assign a zero level of attention to ignore

threat movement in peripheral vision to stop the concentration breaking

vision startle reflex, you can't stop subliminally seeing that movement.


Humans cannot prevent that subliminal detection of threat movement from triggering

an undetectable failed attempt to execute the consciously-forced-blocked reflex.


That process is defined as a visual subliminal distraction

 in first semester psychology lectures on peripheral vision reflex formation.


The path through the brain of that attempt stimulates the amygdala to create

the panicked 'movement in peripheral vision demanding attention sensation'

which usually causes the head turn to look at the threat.


When there is repeating Subliminal Distraction in a compact time frame,

that unrecognized undetectable subliminal sensation can no longer cause the head turn.

Instead it begins to color though and reason.


With enough visual subliminal distraction the oppressive "subliminal appreciation of threat"

will create panic attacks, anxiety attacks, paranoia, and eventually thoughts of suicide.


A normal feature of everyone's physiology of sight, it has always existed

happening every time someone created identically the same circumstances,

and exposure lasted long enough.



Visual subliminal distraction episodes will spontaneously remit

without treatment or after effects,

with appropriate rest from the activities allowing exposure.


No other treatment is possible or necessry.



Such a remission from psychiatric symptoms while participating in a study

will make any treatment modality seem effective.


If chronic exposure is spaced so that the episodes remit before the next exposure

incident the episodes would be mistaken for bipolar disorder.



Although discovered and solved before they existed,

today computers and other digital view-screen devices allow the

"mental break causing design mistake"

to migrate into homes, dorm rooms, and small businesses.


All that is required is normal sight, the ability to suppress the vision startle reflex,

and a work/study location with repeating distracting movement in peripheral vision.


An episode can be created experimentally for evaluation by copying

the 'metal break causing design mistake' engineers found,

then optimizing the design mistake to create a quick safe outcome

with several hours Subliminal Distraction daily over sequential days.


All the "special circumstances" for the full mental break are created in hospital ICU's.


In ICU Psychosis the full psychotic episode happens in as little as five days

 of around the clock movement in the patient's peripheral vision.

A careful astute experiment-to-cause-depression subject will notice changes in thought,

despondency, mild anxiety or panic long before the full mental break would strike

with no warning.


Like other Subliminal Distraction episodes the ICU caused episode

spontaneously remits when the patient leaves the ICU

thus stopping Subliminal Distraction exposure.


Happening in the brain/mind below thought, and reason,

visual subliminal distraction is undetectable.

It cannot be consciously experienced.
