Stuck in the Loop 6/30/2015 Admin 1396 views As you listen to this from the other SIDE of the SAME experience, I want you to think about those you have psychiatrized, often at top speed, for SEEINGIT, those who ALSO sometimes compare the experience to being trapped in a time loop like in the movie “Ground Hog Day.” Another one is the attempt to escape from a “staged” version of reality like in “The Truman Show.” Anything penetrating yet? These are all the same THEMES, going back centuries, about GROUP insanity, being passed off as “normal”- about power, authoritarian control which can''t be questioned, denial of the reality that is all around us every day, and the invention of alternate realities designed to accommodate the group-think, the consensus, the “devil” we know. For otherwise, some “authorities” (like parents for example) may have to be blamed for something and God knows we can't allow ourselves to ever think a dangerous thought like that, can we? If we do, we will lose our privileges and be grounded. (not allowed off the grounds of the home woods until we stop all the whining and being disrespectful to “authority.” Does that sound familiar at all? As was said in the local institution, regarding the staff, “we're like a family here...” I'll say. Can't argue with that one.
