What's actually happening is that the innate balance
of a nervous system is being artificially upset, which
results in a generalized 'desynchronization' of nervous
system function, which occurs within the nervous system
as an increased information-processing workload, and
it's be-cause of this that external observables become
The 'quieting' comes at 'two'-great-a-cost - literally, a
dumbing-down of innate nervous system functionality.
I'll post further discussion in reply to a previous post
