Finally an efficient and scientific approach

EPD (or Exposure to Psychological Danger) is a recent scientific movement that studies and addresses the psychological traumas experienced – often unknowingly - by people in their everyday lives. Unlike abstract and often more established approaches (psychoanalysis, religion...), EPD theory follows a mathematical method by measuring these hazards. The EPD Observatory monitors unconscious factors of exposure such as unbalanced human relationships and the increased intensity of modern lifestyles. EPD theory foresees that this could lead to a major disaster. In order to prevent it, the Observatory offers prevention and tracking measures, as well as unconventional treatments methods. It also issues political recommendations for decision-makers and communities. 

In recent years, science has proven every postulate of EPD theory to be correct: the mathematical aspect of psychology, the extreme contagiousness of EPD, France’s catastrophic psychological situation, the extreme hazardousness of so-called love relationships, the connection between the EPD rate and other diseases (e.g. cancer), etc.

A mathematical equation

"How much?" Instead of "how are you?"

image EPD theory is revolutionary. It states that psychological risk is correlated to the total amount of data the brain is required to process. Beyond a certain threshold, brain dysfunctions can occur. Exposure rates can be monitored by adding up the number of events, objects, contacts and files a person is exposed to in a day. These factors are de-multiplied due to modern virtual communication channels and transport networks. The exposure rate becomes infinite under the combined effect of certain situations (e.g. relationships).

The EPD Observatory is devising an equation that can make it possible to develop risk assessment methods based on factors of exposure. This mathematical process can have many applications, such as geographical or individual evaluation of the exposure rates, or the creation of maps

A worldwide movement

image EPD theory started as an intuition formulated by a French artist in Marseille. It soon rallied fellow artists who found in it the potential to express common concerns, in particular a feeling of unease that had so far remained unformulated. At the same moment, scientists came together and formed an Observatory to develop a unique tool, the EPD equation, with its various applications. This collaboration gave rise to one of today’s most creative new thought currents, which addresses a new global concern.

A big GAP

Before EPD theory, no serious answers

image EPD theory is a very recent science. Up until a few years ago, psychological suffering was being denied and hidden, escaping our knowledge because of its invisibility. Archaic methods – voodoo, religions, psychoanalysis or psychotherapy – would look at so-called “diseases” through a magical prism: the soul, the subconscious, the spirits… The interpretation of behaviors would lead to the production of a diagnosis. "Symptoms" were found by reading excrements or, more recently, by interpreting words, dreams, memories or behavioral traits. In recent years in the US, behavioral therapies isolated hundreds of different "abnormal behaviors" and assigned a drug to cure each of them. Such unsuccessful practices are still in existence, although they received a considerable blow with the advent of EPD theory in 2007.
