Paranoia Trigger Network

Use social networks to trigger paranoia and other events in vulnerable people.

In a classic song the performer and lyricist states he heard something through 'a network' and just about lost his mind. If an organized group can identify emotional triggers in vulnerable subjects then confederates involved in the conspiracy who have no known connection to the original therapist convey the trigger information to the subject-object. This will potentially induce an emotional reaction and a paranoid speculation. The actual Paranoia Trigger Network don't do this however, they are instead materialists that use material triggers to convey material messages into the conspirators brains.
