If you guys really want me to destroy this myth/urban legend, I really can take it apart systematically.

But I'll leave you with this.

"Sinneslöschen" / "Sinnesloeschen" is the name of the company that supposedly created the game.
We have heard definitions of this word as "sense delete", "sense deletion", "sensory erasure".

... Could it also be "senseless"?

In German, Google Translate says "sinnlos", with a reverse translation as "meaningless" as well.
What is "CYBERYOGI", again - other than an Internet prankster and "netizen"?
Supposedly, founder of "Logologie" - "the first cyber-age religion, Its main subjects include the entire abandonation of brutality and of senseless brain destruction."

Senseless.

Let's look at that in German: http://weltenschule.de/Logologie/index.html

"Sinnlosen".

I wonder if he ever expected it'd take on a life of its own...
Great thing about a "made up word" like "Sinneslöschen", makes it easy to Google and track for laughs...
