May be minutes, hours, or even days, before something
negative surfaces up in a human mind. Do you think,
that there is a maximal time TT (trouble time), after
which it has to, no matter how we improve the (human)
mind? Or do you think, that the evil can be somehow
stealth, but must be always present?

I don't find this dualism very likely, not a very
rational assumption.
