Exercising My Right to Think, Hypothesize and Theorize which the (as yet) Non Psychiatrized  'Others' Now Take for Granted

I have stated that I get treated 'as if' my life, as defined by third parties, were reality. Let's try doing just the opposite here and treat the reality I 'claim' to experience 'as if' it were true as defined by me...Just for fun.



Hypothetically Speaking...

Let's all pretend together there was once an est-ee who put on an act like this: (Just hypothetically of course as all sane people know that this kind of thing never REALLY happens, out here, in the world of reality...) Now suppose a targeted 'item' directly asked this est-ee if he had denied saying, 'We have the same sense of humour too. You could take a chance...' And let's imagine she got a response like, 'Well, no as we DO have the same 'sense' of humour...' and as the est-ee said it, ...

A Little Quiz on the Meaning of Passive-Aggressive

I know you all like to have lots of “fun” here locally, so let's have a good time with this one used for group input just like in the est-ee nurse's really “fun” est exercises. (which of course, do not exist). Some wonder what passive aggressive actually means so let's use one of my fascinating delusions to examine the notion shall we? Here is one of my fabrications which we will now treat 'as if' it were really possible. (though of course we know it is not as there would be no reason for re...

“Them”

To those who really want forced drugging because “you really never know what one of 'them'” is going to do”...you never know what anyone is going to do under what circumstances, or why, unless you are someone who can predict the future with 100% accuracy. Psychic (or delusional) as I may be, I can't do that. (Perhaps you psych students could ask “the psychic” whose poster you have pasted on poles at the university to predict that for you when you go to see her after you are done mocking me? Or, ...

Wipe the Inappropriate Affect off Those Superior Faces

April 24th 2013 I am at the library listening to a group of people debating and evaluating psychologically/verbally assaultive group behaviour. The most common emotion displayed during this discussion are the group's SMILES and laughter. One guy says he would not know what it was like to be “ganged up on” as he “pretty much gets along” with “everybody.” There is an old biblical saying, if “everybody” likes you, then you are doing something wrong. What always strikes me in these group ass...

Two Sides of the Same Experience

By Patricia Lefave (Not Two DIFFERENT Experiences) Observer/Evaluator: There she is. (the others turn to look) Sometimes she speaks to people and sometimes she doesn't. Observed/Evaluated: Thinks to Self: (as not allowed to confront anyone) There is the duplicitous wonder behind the service desk again. Sometimes she talks about me in the third person like I am not really here. Sometimes she doesn't. I wonder is she thinks I can see her and hear her from five feet away THIS time or ...

What was She Imagining?

Was she imagining  that she was being watched or followed? Do you assume this is aself contained problem with no connection to external reality?...

Perception/Reaction/Outcome  Problem 1

Here is one of those hypothetical realities about which I am proposing we use as a means of opening ourselves up to possibilities. (I like to use the game boy's jargon now to make my points...now ain't this 'fun'?)

Let's keep this first one short so we can all focus on it and come up with some possible (or probable) outcomes. based on what may, or may not, be reality as we all understand it.

Just suppose that all the people I told you about being involved in this were, in fact, really involved in this going all the way back to 93. Imagine that what I told you all about the nurse 'setting me up' for an attack by a group of his co-workers  was in fact TRUE, (come on...humour me) and that those people you decided were really just a manifestation of my paranoid delusional mental illness, were those same people, who got caught psychologically abusing a worker. So they then decided to conceal the truth about what they did to take care of their own interests. Suppose the hospital administration then told them they were not to admit to anything. 

In theory now, do you think that group of people would be quite happy to go along with that instruction?

Do you think they would tend to go along with what the original protagonist had done because of their “participation” in it?

Do you think they would have any sense of guilt at all, or would they perhaps look for ways to blame their victim for it?

Is blaming the victim for being a victim a fairly common phenomenon?

Do you think that may have something to do with such participants wanting to delude themselves that such things could not happen to THEM because they won't CHOOSE to be a victim?

Does that idea give them a false sense of security?

Does it also help them to excuse themselves in what they do when they help to victimize someone by handing the responsibility for their thinking and behaviour,  to their victim?

Do you suppose that is what that line in the psychiatric nurse's so called 'training' (in my own hypothetical case) means when it states“what you do with problems is hand them to someone else?

Do you think they notice that when they do that, they simultaneously support and enable the aggressor who can then 'hide' in plain sight within the group?

Now if such a hospital administration were to focus on politics and appearances as their first priority, would that end up eventually affecting them negatively as a direct result of such a focus? Could they be blindsided about what was to come?

What if they pulled in a whole lot more people to actually observe the targeted victim? Could that end up being a real problem for them in the end, if all those people were, in fact, the 'strangers' the targeted victim 'claimed' were talking about her, right in front of her, like she was not there?

Would such an administration regret that they had not listened to the victim when she had come to them offering them resolution, with discretion, long before this all went public?

Even if no one took any legal action at all against the aggressor who started it all, would everyone else believe that their own reputations were not harmed by their failure to deal with the problem with all the ethics and integrity they CLAIM is what they are all about?

Is it even possible to keep such an event 'secret' when all these people are involved in it even if you continued indefinitely to tell the victim there were no 'people' in it and that nothing had happened in reality at all?

Do you think that the destruction of the victim’s concrete life as a result would matter to them at all? Or would the victim be considered to be expendable?

Is it possible that the people in control of everyone and everything (or who want to be anyway) could end up destroying their own reputations BECAUSE of the desire to control everything and everyone?

It sounds almost like self destructive, self fulfilling, prophecy doesn't it? Or is that just me reading too much into things again?

I am speaking hypothetically of course but, is it not a good mental exercise for all of us to theorize about possible ultimate outcomes, preferably before they get so bad that any salvaging of the reputations of those involved becomes pretty much impossible?
