Bipolar Disorder





There are numerous sites that "explain" Bipolar Disorder.                                                                     


What is not  understood is that all the explanations are theories.


                                                                       Nothing provable is known about the cause of mental illness.



If  your manic, or depressive  episodes are Subliminal Distraction events, mistaken for Bipolar Disorder,

 they can be stopped without drugs, or treatment of any kind,


Since the engineering design problem with the physiology of human sight is unknown

in mental health services, or research, that is most likely the case.



                                      Use this site to learn what Subliminal Distraction is.                              Here


                 Use pages showing home computer workstation examples to search you work areas.     Examples


Subliminal Distraction causing mistakes, casually using computers, are on the Hollywood page.


Try to remember what you were doing in the weeks before your last episode.


Given what you now know,

were any of those activities suspect as a source of Subliminal Distraction?


Make small, usually free, changes in your work, or study areas to provide

"peripheral vision blocking protection."



If your "Bipolar" was Subliminal Distraction mistaken for mental illness,

It will vanish.


How simple is that?


Typical recovery times for an ongoing event once you stop exposure

are from a few days to a week or more.





Understanding Subliminal Distraction as the source of episodes diagnosed as Bipolar Disorder:




Everything that is 'believed to be known' about mental illness                

 was theorized without knowledge of a simple problem engineers discovered in 1964.

 See DSM page.


How Subliminal Distraction mental breaks were discovered.


This site is about that problem, Subliminal Distraction.





No matter what you believe. or have been told,

no one has proved that chemical imbalances in the brain cause mental illness.


There is no    "testable objective evidence"    that drugs which perturb brain chemistry,

based on the chemical imbalance theory, do anything except cause side effects.



Critical to understanding the problem, explained on this site, is that

engineers did not cause the mental breaks they discovered  as they still believe.


They created a set of    "special circumstances"   to reveal the problem exists.

It has always existed.


It is part of everyone's physiology of sight.


Peripheral vision reflexes, evolved to prevent early humans being a meal for predators,

would have begun to cause behaviors from visual subliminal distraction we today understand as mental illness

when those first humans stopped roosting in trees for nighttime protection,

and began to build too-small single room living arrangements or

crowed around fires in caves.




Everyone has single instances of Subliminal Distraction every day

That level of exposure is normal and harmless.

It only causes psychiatric symptoms when someone creates a situation

where they have a massive number of subliminal, undetectable, FAILED attempts

to execute the vision startle reflex.


Those failed attempts to startle are explained and defined as a visual subliminal distraction in first semester psychology

lectures on how peripheral vision reflexes are created





Subliminal Distraction is known in design to cause believed-harmless,                              

                                        experienced as temporary psychotic-like episodes of confusion.


But it is unknown in mental health services, or research.


That means if you create the "special circumstances" for the design mistake engineers discovered

where you work, study, or use a computer long hours,                             

then have the "office worker" mental event,

                                           psychiatrists will diagnose a mental disorder.


A Subliminal Distraction event will spontaneously remit without treatment or after effects

with appropriate rest from exposure.


If your exposure is widely spaced so that the manic, or depressive episodes happen every few weeks.

remitting before the next exposure activity,

your mental experience would be diagnosed as Bipolar Disorder.


There is no treatment possible, or necessary.


Use this site to learn what visual subliminal distraction is.


That explanation begins  with Subliminal Distraction.


Search your daily activities to find locations where you could have Subliminal Distraction exposure,

 then make small, usually free, changes to stop that exposure.

If the behaviors you have which have been diagnosed

as Bipolar, were actually Subliminal Distraction mistaken for mental illness,

they will stop.


How simple is that?


Typical recovery times I find are usually around one week.

But that time frame will vary depending on the length, and intensity of exposure.

Your brain must unlearn, forget, the behavior.


That search will cost nothing.                                                    


It does not involve treatment of any kind.


                                                 It will not interfere with any treatment you now have.


As long as you maintain vigilance to avoid Subliminal Distraction exposure this is a permanent cure.


Take up outside activities, running, swimming,

anything that keeps you alone not requiring mental investment,

with no detectable movement beside you.

                                                          Do not begin QiGong or Kundalini Yoga exercises.                       QiGong / Kundalini Yoga



 One caution

LGATS Site Outline

If you have a sensitivity for exposure it is possible to have exposure in classrooms.

That would mean precautions should be taken when taking lecture notes with movement beside you.

A pair of safety glasses modified to block peripheral vision should work.



Examples of home computer workstations are here.


You can experience how exposure begins with my demonstration of subliminal sight

and the habituation of conscious sight in peripheral vision.   Demo




Since the design mistake is a physical situation it can be experimentally copied, optimized,                                                  

then with necessary precautions shown to cause anxiety, and depressive ideation                   

   with a few hours daily exposure over several days,                      

                     but before the office worker mental break

                                                              would strike suddenly without warning.



Stories of spontaneous remission of insanity  400 years ago in London, say Subliminal Distraction filled madhouses.

There were no drugs or treatment in 16/1700's London.

That means all recoveries were spontaneous remissions.

Where are those remissions today? Mental illness has not changed.


They are being covered up by immediate treatment then claimed as efficacy for drugs that failed double blind testing.



Psychiatrists claim "case evidence" that these drugs work to treat mental illness.

When psychotropic drugs fail double blind scientific testing,  case evidence that they are effective cannot exist.

Psychiatrists are making the same mistake drug testing is intended to prevent,  observer, and drug bias.


See Drugs page.



Stop and think.


If drugs fail in testing, you cannot claim they work because a small percentage taking them improve.

Something else is happening to cause those positive case outcomes.


Those improvemens are spontaneous remissions of a Subliminal Distraction episode,

that has been mistaken for mental illness.

See Connie Tucker's case.


Subliminal Distraction can be explained as unrecognized subliminal operant conditioning.

The subliminal appreciation of threat from UNDETECTABLE  FAILED attempts to execute the vision startle reflex,

is defined as a visual subliminal distraction in first semester psychology lectures on peripheral vision reflexes.

That oppressive subliminal appreciation of threat will begin to color thought and reason.

This happens in the mind below thought, reason, and consciousness.

By investigating activates which have mental breaks, and also create the "special circumstances"

for Subliminal Distraction it is possible to build a list of psychiatric outcomes


Some of the emotional stresses on thought you should suspect come from Subliminal Distraction are:

fear, panic, anxiety, depression, psychosomatic complaints, trouble sleeping.



QiGong & Kundalini Yoga both cause mental breaks.

They have a 2,400 and 3,000 year history respectively for those mental breaks.

The performance of slow motion martial arts movements, and moving Yoga poses done in groups

creates the "special circumstances" engineers discovered.

As each participant concentrates to correctly perform the exercise moves

they will subliminally detect movement of others nearby.



Hallucinations experienced will contain elements of guilt, persecution, sometimes with impossible beliefs of criminal acts.



Children in the Wi-Fi illness incident in Ontario, Canada had symptoms of: 

racing hearts, headaches, dizziness, nausea, memory loss, falling out (fainting), psychosomatic complaints, and skin sensations like itching.

Pictures used in media showing the classrooms revealed children sitting on the floor using laptops in each other's peripheral vision.

Site Outline page.



Drugs designed to perturb brain chemistry cannot possibly effect a Subliminal Distraction episode.

It must, and does spontaneously remit without treatment when exposure stops.



If this is your first visit begin by reading the beginning explanation page, Subliminal Distraction.


You will need this basic information to quickly understand.
