  • I have been shouting to any one that will listen that it's not the games no matter how violent or what the content.

    It's a problem that was discovered and solved forty years ago, Subliminal Distraction.

    It takes that name from the normal feature of physiology, explained in college psychology, that allows it to happen.

    Workers using the first close-spaced office workstations began to have mental breaks. The cubicle solved that problem by 1968.

    Today computer use in unprotected workspace in homes, two person dorm rooms, college computer labs, and small business offices without cubicles is the most likely source of the exposure.

    The Virginia Tech, Redlake School, Joleka Finland School, and Atlanta Day Trader killers all created this problem.

    Barton, in Atlanta, is the only one to believe he was having a mental break. The others believed their rage and paranoia was from their own thought processes.

    SD exposure cannot be detected by the victim. Perform the demonstration of subliminal sight and habituation in peripheral vision at VisionAndPsychosis.Net.

    The circumstantial evidence for this is in news reports and interviews of roommates or police. Other mass killers may have the same exposure but they left no concrete evidence that points to it.

    VisionAndPsychosis.Net is a six year investigation of Subliminal Distraction.
