Information is food and we should all be conscious of that which we consume.

JP Rangaswami: Information is food

Hypnotic induction is the process undertaken by a hypnotist to establish the state or conditions required for hypnosis to occur. Self-hypnosis is possible, in which a subject listens to a taped induction or plays the roles of both hypnotist and subject.[1] It is contended that hypnotic induction is a necessary process designed to cause the subject to enter a state of increased suggestibility, during which their critical faculties are reduced and they are more prone to accept the commands and suggestions of the hypnotist. This state is known as a "trance." [2] Hypnotic induction, therefore, is whatever is necessary to get a person into the state of trance.[3] Others argue that hypnotic induction is merely a popularly-expected ritual, which is not required for hypnosis to occur; hypnosis is a process of influence, which is enhanced (or formalized) through expected cultural rituals.[citation needed] In early hypnotic literature a hypnosis induction was a gradual, drawn-out process. Methods such as progressive muscle relaxation were designed to relax the hypnotic subject into a state of inner focus (during which their imagination would come to the forefront) and the hypnotist would be better able to influence them and help them effect changes at the subconscious level.[4] Modern hypnotists practice what is known as instant induction. Instant hypnosis inductions employ the principles of shock and surprise. A shock to the nervous system of the subject causes their conscious mind to be temporarily disengaged. During this window of distraction the hypnotist can intervene, allow the subject to enter the state of imaginative inner focus known as hypnosis (or trance).[citation needed]

That seems plausible, and even without understanding the actual processes of hypnosis, it at least allows us a view into what might induce an individual into a suggestible state.

Space is the boundless, three-dimensional extent in which objects and events occur and have relative position and direction.[1] Physical space is often conceived in three linear dimensions, although modern physicists usually consider it, with time, to be part of a boundless four-dimensional continuum known as spacetime. In mathematics,"spaces" are examined with different numbers of dimensions and with different underlying structures. The concept of space is considered to be of fundamental importance to an understanding of the physical universe. However, disagreement continues between philosophers over whether it is itself an entity, a relationship between entities, or part of a conceptual framework.

Time is the continuing sequence of events occurring in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future,[1][2][3][4][5] and a measure of the durations and frequencies of events and the intervals between them. [6][2][7] Time has long been a major subject of study in religion, philosophy, and science, but defining it in a manner applicable to all fields without circularity has consistently eluded scholars.[6][2][7][8][9][10] Nevertheless, diverse fields such as business, industry, sports, the sciences, music, dance, and the live theater all incorporate some notion of time into their respective measuring systems.[11][12][13] Some simple, relatively uncontroversial definitions of time include "time is what clocks measure"[6][14] and "time is what keeps everything from happening at once".[15][16][17][18]

If one were to imagine an anomaly which allows one to perceive moments of space and time, is it possible for an individual to be so severely affected they’re incapacitated in some respect?

A far out idea perhaps but if one considers past individuals afflicted with disorders which might apply it becomes less extravagant.

Claustrophobia (from Latin claustrum "a shut in place" and Greek φόβος, phóbos, "fear") is the fear of having no escape and being closed in small spaces or rooms (opposite: claustrophilia). It is typically classified as an anxiety disorder and often results in panic attack, and can be the result of many situations or stimuli, including elevators crowded to capacity, windowless rooms, and even tight-necked clothing.[1] The onset of claustrophobia has been attributed to many factors, including a reduction in the size of the amygdala, classical conditioning, or a genetic predisposition to fear small spaces.

Agoraphobia (from Greek ἀγορά, "marketplace"; and φόβος/φοβία, -phobia) is an anxiety disorder characterized by anxiety in situations where the sufferer perceives the environment to be difficult or embarrassing to escape. These situations include, but are not limited to, wide-open spaces, as well as uncontrollable social situations such as may be met in shopping malls, airports, and on bridges. Agoraphobia is defined within the DSM-IV TR as a subset of panic disorder, involving the fear of incurring a panic attack in those environments.[1] The sufferer may go to great lengths to avoid those situations, in severe cases becoming unable to leave their home or safe haven.

Both of these disorders are spatial, each correlates to a perception of space and more specifically the extents of its dimensions.

Locating an easily related time example is not easy when not using deprecated brain memory models thus:

Any physiological process can be considered time dependent. The limit of an activity such as running can be attributed to internal bodily processes as well as environmental factors each of which is dependent on time for any sequence of events i.e. the heart beat or the rotation of the earth.

It should at least be considered a possibility that such an anomaly as discussed could hinder and perhaps even assist in some circumstances.

This is a digital camera.

It is able to sample the human applicable EMR gamut and create a symbolic representation accepted as a moment of space-time to the extent it’s output is used in the judicial system.
The digital camera is a man-made device it is not beyond comprehension.

These are digital devices.

they're able to symbolically represent moments of space-time. It might be considered the anomaly.
The digital television is a man-made device it is not beyond comprehension.

An explanation of visual time traversal

Though it's predominantly the visual which is discussed it is applicable to any of the senses.

Love is the only way one can truly awaken from this dream which we live in.

Maybe. No doubt love is powerful but the same can be said of hate, each can be a powerful motivator.

This is not a pipe.

It's just soooooo silly.
