Staring at a monitor can induce a form of hypnotic trance. This can occur to some extent while watching TV as well, although the hypnotic effect is probably heightened when sitting very close as with a computer monitor. Entering this trance-like state may contribute to distortion of time experienced by many users.( Greenfield, Daivid N., PhD.
