by Patricia Lefave, labeled D.D.(P) in 11 cost effective minutes in 99. (I am sure even the 'Speed Diagnosing' Champions currently competing in Psychiatry's 'contest' would be impressed by the speed of THAT one! Say...isn't that behaviorist tactics being used ON the profession itself?) The reason people in altered states get 'messages' of the TV. (or from books, magazine articles, songs etc.) Is because of the meta message which relates to their own concreteexperience of reality in SOME way...

The Devil's in the Details

But the understanding of the GROUP phenomenon is in the metaphysical “play” or structure. The details are all but irrelevant. Concretely: It is not about being Jewish, or black, or white, or ANY religion ,or NO religion, or being female, or sick , or old etc.  So does that mean that NO ONE in any of those concrete categories is an a-hole? No. It doesn't. There are a-holes EVERYWHERE on the planet. Does it then mean that EVERYONE in one of those categories is an A-Hole? No. It doesn't. It means...

The following is out of a response made to a contact from a list. Details and names have been removed to protect the identity and privacy of the person involved in the discussion. I post this here as I think it may help some others who are not talking directly to anyone but might like to hear something about it. Dear angry abuse victim, I don't know if you want an actual answer to some of your posts but I thought I could relate to some of this so thought I would. In any case. I first want ...

This family Dynamic is very common and exists to lesser extremes than the example used here but using the SAME general pattern of group behaviour and relationship along with double binds  keeping everyone 'right where they are.'...

The Possibility of Collective Consciousness

As A Reality By Patricia Lefave, Labelled, D.D.(P) First Written in 2004 This is an idea I would like all voice hearers to at least consider. Now, before you contact me to suggest that I perhaps ‘need a little something to reduce my awareness’, stop, pause, and reconsider this. What if telepathy (mind to mind communication) was, in fact, a reality in altered states of consciousness? What if everyone in that state was, in fact, talking to other altered people, (whatever the precipitating ca...

A Union of Voices

By Patricia Lefave, Monophrenic  I would like all of you who hear the internal dialogue to think about something as a possibility. Imagine that when we are altered in consciousness what actually happens is that our individual boundaries are temporarily dissolved. Suppose that what we have been hearing is actuallyeach other, all over space/time, on a universal level of existence. (Come on; humour me for a little bit here) If that is the case, then we would have to deal with that in a ...

The People Who See What Others Do Not 

Every generation has within it some people who see the group behaviour and the collective insanity for what it is. If you looked at the metaphors of their times without declaring them to be meaningless as YOUR defence mechanism, you would see that. You might also see that those people represent a minority in their own time and as such, the majority who don't see what thy minority sees, declare them to be crazy. Every generation creates and defines reality by group consensus.  It is also known that the MAJORITY of people are followers and not leaders. That is why the minority write fairy tales like The Pied Piper, Through the Looking Glass, and the Wizard of Oz. The majority need to  talked to in metaphor as they routinely reject genuine direct communication as “normal.” It is too scary for them. So we must resort to “Once upon a time...”

Madness Radio:
Violent Voices Erica van den Akker

 

 

 

People who hear voices are no more violent than anyone else -- but what about the small number of voice hearers that do actually commit violent crimes? Are medications and locked wards the best way to help those who act on their aggressive "command hallucinations?" Dutch psychologist and Hearing Voices Movement member Erica van den Akker discusses her innovative counseling work with violent offenders in the Netherlands. alpouvar1(at) tomaatnet(dot)nl
