Forgot some additional stuff on the micropower TMS:
Overall this has proved to be a ruthlessly effective tool for personal sanity and reasonable thinking. If the world was ending and everyone was panicking, handing these out to everyone would probably make the evacuation so orderly as to inspire envy in the Swiss railway system.
I connected a ~25cm wire to the output of the “white noise generator” transistor in the original schematic, as well as connecting the metal case holding the TMS to that same point.
Further research has suggested that the increased randonmness/noisy property of the relaxation oscillator may help, apparently the brain doesn’t like signals that are “too perfect.” The tiny tiny amount of white noise being radiated from “white noise generator” may be helping here as well.
