story from Jens

“A biofeedback researcher at the TUe told me that they had been trying to help ex Afghanistan soldiers with PTSD. EMDR can be a very good technique for dealing with such syndromes, but the soldiers refused to talk to any psychiatrists and look at a pen being waved in front of their eyes. So the researchers developed a shooting game for the soldiers that would trigger the right kind of eye movement. Isn’t that insane/beautiful? Gunning on a screen to cure your scars of war! Its a strange world we live in.”
