You will find the information explained here hard to believe.

A common response is "that's so crazy it can't be true."


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

Before you dismiss visual subliminal distraction, investigate subliminal sight.


Not only can visual subliminal distraction be demonstrated,                  

                               but by experimentally copying the "mental break causing design mistake"

                engineers discovered and solved fifty years ago,

                                           you can experience anxiety, then depressive ideation.







It is caused by the subliminal appreciation of threat                             

in the mind below thought, reason, and consciousness,

from repeating undetectable, FAILED, attempts

to execute the vision startle reflex.


This is defined as a 'visual subliminal distraction.'


The physiology involved is taught in first semester psychology,

the physiology of human sight, subliminal sight, and peripheral vision reflexes.


In 2002 my wife had a psychotic break when her office was changed eliminating 'Cubicle Level Protection.'

She heard voices, and hallucinated guilt for impossible crimes.

Her episode was mistaken for schizophrenia.  Here



I had known of the "mental break causing design mistake" engineers discovered in 1964

since I was a 22 year old engineering student in 1966.



But I had never seen it happen before.    more




It soon became apparent that the public, mental health services, and research are unaware this problem exists.


No one screens for Subliminal Distraction caused psychiatric symptoms before diagnosing mental illness.


In nine years sending emails, and writing letters I found a single psychiatrist at Tufts University

who said he had seen the episodes from offices when he was in residency.


He, like everyone else aware of the problem, believes it harmless, limited to incorrectly designed offices.


 Today computers allow anyone to make the design mistake, almost anywhere.





 Site visitors cannot believe a simple problem everyone has

can cause an episode that cannot be distinguished from mental illness.



Not a theory, or speculation, a known problem in design for fifty years,

it can be replicated experimentally.



The experiment will  prove:


 The psychiatric outcome of a massive number of subliminal, undetectable,  FAILED,                               

                                                          attempts to execute the consciously blocked, suppressed, vision startle reflex,

                                              is anxiety, and depressive ideation.  ___ 


 Warning about attempting to guess the experiment.


Too long to be safe exposure is required to cause the psychotic episode my wife had.   Here



In the entire history of man on planet Earth, it was discovered just once.


When told the mental breaks were caused by the long term consciously forced suppression of the vision startle reflex,

engineers designed the cubicle to block peripheral vision to stop it by 1968.


Still a problem today, now open plan offices use Systems Furniture so that no one sits,

creates movement, in another worker's peripheral vision.



Design engineers have prevented the episode for fifty years using

peripheral vision blocking protection (AKA Cubicle Level Protection).



Undetectable exposure, happening in the brain below thought, reason, and consciousness,

cannot be consciously experienced.


None of the geniuses aware of Subliminal Distraction understands ...

it is a universal problem of everyone's physiology of sight, not just an office problem.



Those aware of it believe it harmless because the light episode seen in incorrectly designed offices remits without treatment, or after effects when the source of threat-movement in peripheral vision is discovered and stopped.


Sudden panic attack like episodes of hallucinations, fear, paranoia, hearing voices, and depression

are blamed on demon possession, supernatural forces, stress, anxiety, and the frailty of the human psyche.


These high stress events would have been called nervous breakdown in earlier years.


Unaware it exists, no one screens for Subliminal Distraction before diagnosing mental illness.





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 physiology involved is explained beginning with Subliminal Distraction.


If you have panic attacks, anxiety attacks, or have been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, or Schizophrenia,

it costs nothing to learn what visual subliminal distraction is and how to take simple free precautions to avoid the undetectable phenomenon.

Today computers allow the design mistake, long hours concentrating with detectable movement nearby in peripheral vision,  to be made in homes and student dorm rooms.


You can stop psychiatric symptoms it causes with simple free precautions to avoid Subliminal Distraction.



Site pages with examples of the "mental break causing design mistake" are:

  Foxconn-France Telecom suicides  QiGong-Kundalini Mental Breaks  Connie Tucker hospital record

Skeptical? perform the demonstration of subliminal sight. Here

You will witness movement in peripheral vision vanish while you observe it.

That's how exposure begins subliminally and is UNDETECTABLE.



Subliminal Distraction

If you have a computer at home or a child in school, college, you should have this information to take simple free precautions to avoid it.

This site explains that Subliminal Distraction exposure, happening when students make the "mental break causing design mistake" engineers discovered in 1964, where they study or use a computer, is the long sought cause of college suicides.


The problem explained is not a theory but a known problem in design for fifty years.


Businesses such as Herman Miller, Steelcase, Knoll, and Haworth have sold cubicles and designed 'open plan' offices using "Systems Furniture" for fifty years to prevent this believed-harmless episode of psychotic-like confusion.


The entire mental health services establishment is unaware it exists.



Scroll, read to bottom of page for beginning links.




When my wife had a psychotic break after her office was changed eliminating Cubicle Level Protection,

 I learned a simple problem of human physiology discovered to cause believed-harmless temporary mental breaks for knowledge workers

 in too-crowded office situations is unknown in mental health services.


I had known of it since I was a 22 year old engineering student in 1966. But I had never seen it happen before.

In nine years sending emails and letters I found a single doctor who said he had seen the episodes from offices while in residency.

No one screens for this problem before beginning treatment for believed mental illness.



The theory of the investigation is that if Subliminal Distraction is a serious problem,

 evidence will be everywhere in plain sight.


Events such as the first cases of Dissociative Fugue in 1800's France,

Qi Gong and Kundalini Yoga mental breaks for 2400 and 3000 years respectively,

Culture Bound Syndromes, around the world and through history,

a mass insanity incident on the Belgian Polar Expedition of 1897/99,

the Anasazi abandonment of the four corners area in 1300,

Barney and Betty Hill, the first case of alien abduction,

Jumping Frenchmen of Maine, 1880,

extreme outcomes diagnosed as Shell Shock in WWI,

college suicides and strange bizarre student disappearances,

all have evidence that they were and are caused by Subliminal Distraction.



What portion of behaviors believed to be mental illness are Subliminal Distraction mental events?

It is not possible to open the box and look inside a mind to determine that.

If the public is warned to prevent the believed-harmless psychotic-like episode of confusion engineers see from office exposure,

all exposure would stop.

That would prevent serious outcomes this investigation found.

Remember, in the entire history of man on the planet Earth this problem was discovered just that one time.


Everyone aware of it believes it is a harmless nuisance in the design of crowded knowledge work conditions.


It's a problem of human physiology not just offices.

They are just the first place under observation when it happened.

Subliminal Distraction has always been present in any human population.

All that is necessary is to replicate the situation where it was discovered.

That is long hours of deep mental investment with repeating detectable movement nearby  in peripheral vision.



Before you begin your investigation on this site, consider this question.

Did you know that the blind from birth do not have Panic Attacks, Bipolar Disorder or Schizophrenia?

An anonymous page on the Internet says there are only two such cases in all the literature.

Why is that true?

The subject of this site is a vision driven problem discovered when it caused mental breaks for office workers.

If mental illness is caused by chemical imbalances why would the blind be immune?

 If you use computers in small  business offices, dorm rooms, or at home save the index page, when it becomes available,  to your desktop.

That will allow you to read the  material and visit the psychology notes pages and their links to evidence later.

This material is from first semester psychology psychophysics. But no one has investigated this phenomenon before.

The first phase of this psychology project is complete.

The original investigation site is a difficult read. Pages are organized around investigation subjects.

Until the new organization is complete you can access that old investigation site using the Wayback Machine.



All of the files from the original research were saved.

This simpler site will  contain the explanation of Subliminal Distraction and relate it to college student disappearances, suicides, and mass shootings.

The site is being divided so that it cannot all go down due to a crash in the future.

The simplified plan will allow visitors to survey the material without slogging through all nine years of research material.
