Yes, an informative article and great topic for a thread.
As widely known as this is to many of us here, it is an unfortunate product of our societies willingness to be spoon fed information by trusted
sources. In my nearly half century of life, I have witnessed much change in our way of thinking, from one where people used critical though processes
to accumulate knowledge, to current trends of accepting what they are presented as truth wholeheartedly.
Our society requires massive alteration at its core. Most of us here see it, know that something needs to be done about it, and ask ourselves what can
truly be done to change it and conclude we can do very little as we are segregated by many factors.
The Flicker Effect and its use throughout our society would therefore seem to be partly to blame for the decline in our intelligence as a population
or race. Combating it requires strict discipline and self control. I for one have not subscribed to television, meaning I have to cable service, for
over two years and acquire my news from less distracting outlets. Too bad the masses do not do the same.
