Large Group Awareness Exercises

Guess Who is in THIS "Large Group"--- Go Ahead all You "Covert" Operators...Guess...

What Makes MY 'Exercises' Different?

My 'exercises' are different than the LGAT
[1] which 'trained' the psychiatric nurse as they are they are aimed at waking you up to reality rather than manipulating you to give up discernment and blindly follow the leader who can't ever be questioned or blamed.
Here I will demonstrate the concrete reality in which you live but which you also deny. It is your denial of this reality allows psychiatry to 'diagnose'
for claiming it exists.
Homewood, and the psychiatrists who have 'helped' Homewood to deal with me, and my complaints about the staff there whom I claimed were playing estian head games with me, have done what psychiatrists are
to do as well and that is to see 'signs' and to hear 'symptoms' of mental illness in the identified patient's story of real experience. My experience with them and with this community has been denied to exist anywhere other than in my defective brain.
Do you Get that?

Perhaps one day you will, if enough of us who have had this horrifying experience with large groups, or mobs, tell you all the details often enough and for long enough. As they used to say in the X-files, all we can do is keep trying.

Sometimes the hardest thing anyone is ever going to have to do is to further simplify, to make MORE obvious than obvious, the Truth That is Out There already, and which always has been.

For Their Own Good

In the U.S. which is determined to define sanity for the whole world it seems, (read "Crazy Like Us" by Ethan Watters) there is an organization of families and "friends" of the psychiatrized, heavily influenced in their beliefs by Fuller Torrey, called N.A.M.I. (National Association for Mental Illness) At their meetings they have been known to tell new members, who have family members labelled with illnesses, and who resist being drugged, or who claim they do not need to be drugged, to do something to force compliance. (definition: complying with a wish, request or demand; a disposition or tendency to yield to others...and is that a "good" thing or not?)

One of the things that has been suggested , and apparently carried out by some of these members is that to force the person to comply, the family members should claim the individual is violent toward them, then call the police and turn over some furniture etc as evidence of that. Then, when the police arrive with the "help" of course, the labelled family member is very emotional about what is being done to him, (which of course "proves" emotional instability).

Now I want you to FEEL this very clearly from the perspective of the "mental patient" who "thinks" his own family is doing him harm.

The parents who do this KNOW what they are doing. They KNOW they are lying to the police. The son KNOWS what the parents are doing and that they are lying to the police. The parents KNOW the son knows what they are doing and that they are lying to the police. The son KNOWS they know it. THAT is the RELATIONSHIP they have and THATrelationship is a SICK one. The son's "reality" has been reinvented to serve the powerful/powerless paradigm.

The labelled person of course knows there is no way he is going to be believed since he has been diagnosed with a mental illness that causes him to "think" he has family members who are setting him up to look crazy" which of course we all know is utter nonsense since we just can't blame "families" (as an abstraction in absolute terms) for the crazy thinking of the mentally ill, can we?

How does this set up get justified in such families? Why, by knowing that they are doing this for their loved one's own good as he "may" become violent at some point in the future according to his diagnosis. So this lie is seen as preventive medicine. When the patient develops "trust issues" and is no longer interested in talking at all to those who cannot hear a thing he says as valid anyway, the trust issues are also pathologized. Once labelled the identified pateint is pretty much always wrong. This kind of set up, and it IS a "set up", creates a PARADOX in which this person is trapped. You see folks THIS is what happens when we "medicalize" life, trauma, stress and relationship problems. We define it "as if" it existed inside a containment field, the BODY of the one in distress, just LIKE a REAL disease, without relationship to external reality or other people. There is a kind of benefit to those others who can never be blamed for anything when see it that way isn't there?

Your exercise? Get together as a group and discuss the self justifying behaviour of the group and then see yourself as the one being forced to comply, treated like a naughty child being "corrected", having the right to control your own life taken away from you and discuss how that might FEEL to be in that position knowing what you know, and being invalidated by EVERYONE for trying to say so....Do you think you might feel angry, resentful, frustrated, depressed, hopeless, frightened etc. Might you feel like you were trapped in The Matrix, or that you had 'gone down the rabbit whole ' with Alice in Wonderland...or that it was like something out of the novel 1984?

(you know as metaphors for the experience you are having...which of course will ALSO be pathologized. For though the presumed "normal" people may use metaphors as much as they like, when the psychiatrized use them to describe the situation they are in they get defined as signs of psychosis. )

The Power
The most effective thing that Evil has done to increase it's Own Power to the Infinite is to deny It's own existence. If you believe there IS no Evil, you will SEE no Evil, even if it is standing right in front of you, smiling at you, with twisted satisfaction.


How the Premise to Which Information is Attached
Changes the Meaning of the Information


Here is a quickie exercise for you.  

Recently it is being suggested that a star who uses drugs all the time is “Bi-Polar.” This is now becoming a knee-jerk response to any instance of erratic behaviour displayed by anyone. The public LOVES psychiatric diagnosing.  

Here is what I would like you to consider in relation to this topic. 

Is the erratic thinking and behaviour, including drug use/addiction, caused by an underlying cause which is making the individual choose to use these drugs OR are the drugs the individual is choosing to use causing the erratic thinking and behaviour?  

I want you to think about the differences n treatment and outcomes, both short and long term, depending upon WHICH premise of thought and belief you use and the action you take as a result of these beliefs.   

I also want you to think about ideas like; hopelessness, helplessness, dependency, recovery, responsibility and resolution in relation to both of those premises of belief. 

THINK about it.


University is about finding out and telling everyone

Yes I would say it seems to be about that, as it is from university faculty, staff and students that I got much of my own information. PL

Following Authority


People who loyally and blindly follow authority, without question, are most respected and appreciated by the authority who wants to be loyally and blindly followed without question.


Hidden in Plain Sight


I never cease to be amazed at the capacity for self delusion in those who believe they can talk about me from six feet away, over and over again, with many others, who have done the same thing, and yet remain completely convinced that they are not seen, heard, or understood by me.


As with everything else on this site, which offers ideas which do not originate with me, I do not necessarily agree with everything said but believe the ideas offer food for thought and should be treated, and considered, in that way.
If it is here, it means that I see at least SOME virtue in the ideas presented though I am not necessarily endorsing, or promoting, every word.

Excerpts from:


We can become psychically numb…we are unable to differentiate our own thoughts from those indoctrinated into us... we learn to recite without question the facts and details of what was read, said or inferred. Spreading of gossip or incorrect information is an example of psychic numbness.

Punishment delivered as a form of control, reduces our awareness. With reduced awareness, we are less adept at feeling obvious signs of violation. Violations can continue easily once our awareness is down. The natural signal, PAIN, is interrupted by a spasm, a tick or a total bypass of the nervous system into nervous BEHAVIOR ?irritation, excitement, hyper excitement, hysteria, giddiness, mania etc. All reactions TO stimuli are either self created, administered, or as a result of a collective identity (culture).

 We can set ourselves up as a healers and go ahead and heal those we believe are needing us, or we can set ourselves up to allow others to heal themselves (if they feel the need.)
