Monophrenic Monologue


the Best Victim

Many years ago locally a man I do not know at all spewed his contempt at me on the streets here saying,

Congratulations lady. You make a really good victim.”

Let me respond to that once again now.  Actually, stranger to me, who feels entitled to act out like that... I make a really LOUSY victim, as you are about to find out.

“Left handed people can use both sides of their brain at the same time, so they can usually process more information than right handed people.”
Mehmet Oz, M.D.
(Did you know that I am left handed? I wonder how many more left handed people than right handed people get labelled as compared to the general population? Did you know that I once described other people's idea of the meaning of 'psychic' as really just the ability to pick up more information than most people? Did you know that when I said something similar to a psychiatrist, and said I thought I got more information than most people, I got offered something for my delusions? It was something to 'reduce my awareness.')

I Recommend 

I recommend for psych students (and others) a few books available at our local public library. These are:

The Cure of Folly

and Daggers of the Mind: Psychiatry and the Myth of Mental Disease

by Gordon Warme, M.D.

I include these NOT because I agree with every word and in fact, I find much of this disturbing, but because they offer some insights into how the minds of psychiatrists have been trained to work.

Also available locally are:

Toxic Psychiatry By Peter Breggin, M.D.

Agnes's Jacket By Professor Gail Hornstein
A Schizophrenia Breakthough by Al Siebert, PhD.
Who was psychiatrized while TRAINING in psychiatry. 

I hope that these will help to get you to questioning and rethinking the psychiatric status quo.



Out of My Experience of 95

In the Beginning there was nothing

Then God said, “Let there Be Light”

...and there was still nothing

But now, there was a light on

So you could see It...

A Hypothetical Reality...

There are no "secrets" kept here. In fact, it is much more likely that your relatively insignificant private chats will be built up from a grain of truth into unrecognizable "stories" by the time all the "secret" keepers have passed them along to all the other "secret" keepers. So if you decide, hypothetically speaking of course, to put on some grandiose performance that reeks of bad acting in the building lobby for a group of other residents, such as for example, claiming you saw a group of guys run out of a resident's apartment when a fire alarm went off, claiming they were all smoking crack in there and that they had the nerve to ask you if you wanted to join them, then you are drawing LOADS of attention to yourself. Is that what you wanted?

When you follow that with a melodramatic performance about how you had been TOLD this was a safe building and then grab a tenant incident report form, with a flourish of overacting that puts Nell, being tied to the railroad tracks by Oil Can Harry, in the old silents to shame, those other residents watching you do so, make at least a mental note of that. Since you are now living in Story Telling central the odds that those others witnessing this will repeat it to many others also, are pretty good.

But here is the really interesting part. Whether you actually DID turn in a report as you stated you were going to do in front of all those witnesses. You sure would get a lot of focus on YOURSELF as well as the one you are naming as the problem. Would that be your goal, HYPOTHETICALLY speaking of course, for as some like to point out, over and over again, in all the Dysfunctional Villas, ..."But WHY would someone do that when they would have NOREASON to do so? It makes no SENSE."

If there is one thing I have learned living here it is that there are a whole lot of people here who spend a whole LOT of time, DECADES of it, looking for the sense in the senseless and if they can't locate it they simply deny the existence of senseless acts as the "solution" to the "mysterious" puzzle.

Try not to get too bizarre with your performances. Had you left it at that, it was already bizarre enough but still had a bit of plausibility to it. Once you show yourself to actually be good pals with the one you openly accuse to other tenants though, you create a new situation for yourself AND the other tenant by getting everyone focused on BOTH of you and the blatantly obvious duplicity. I hope that is what you were going for. It is likely what you have CREATED for yourself.

But then, what would I know? I am just one of the "grandma nutbars" you have talked about with such disdain.

Did you learn that from Jesus? I understand you see yourself as having Jesus on your side...

Not that any of this really happens of course for after all it would not be reasonable for people to behave this way in real life would it? That is how you and others know I am just "fabricating". Otherwise we might all have to think we are living in an open air insane asylum and only the FEW people who see and hear this crap and say so, are the ones actually in touch with reality with everyone else is living in a fantasy world built on denial........

We sure can't have THAT now can we?

Oh yes and just a suggestion...if you don't want to get involved in the Dysfunctional Villa psycho-drama as stated, it is probably not the best plan to become one of the star creators of it. For you see, as I have pointed out, that draws attention to YOUR duplicitous nature. In order to be successfully duplicitous like some of the reigning drama queens you need to follow their example. Act calm and sweet to everyone's face and then do the mocking ridiculing, snarling dog bit behind their backs, always being careful never to display BOTH sides of yourself to the same person at the same time.

That way, even when, or if, they find out that who you are to their faces and who you are behind their backs are polar opposites, you will be able to pull off the "falsely accused" bit more successfully, or, at least be able to keep YOURSELF convinced that you have. If you're not quite up to speed on your Splitter act yet, watch the ones who already have it down to an art form. You can use them as your models.

Righteous indignation about being accused falsely, (when you know you're not being "falsely" accused) always has it's limits as overacting will ultimately draw MORE attention to YOU, rather than to deflect it. So be sure to check with the best actresses as most of them have had more practise at this then you.

Cautionary NOTE: if anyone thinks this sounds too real please note I have used NO actual names or identities in this "story" at all so as long as no one reacts to it, drawing more attention to him, or herself, all will assume it is just a hypothetical story, just as I have said. So just think of it like a fairy tale with a simple life lesson in it like those told to children under eight years old.

Basically it is for people who can't get to sleep at night unless a grown up tells them a "story."


Regarding the Speaking Monophrenese series

...To the Splitting, Projecting, Denying "Normal"

This is a (probably) hopeless attempt to teach “Face Value Communication” to Those Who are Entrenched in the Long Time practice of Searching for Hidden Meaning where there is none .

I will make the attempt to explain the language and reasoning of the Monophrenic species, such as myself, using as clear and concise descriptions and definitions, as simply expressed as I can, and in as much pedantic detail as is possible. Hopefully this will help us to bridge the gap between the schizophrenic projectors[1] and the Monophrenic receivers, which currently tend to be seen and understood most often in opposite terms and with switched identities.  
I will try to explain to you what it is like to be from another planet like Monoterra (or at least to FEEL like you are from another planet) by using the most gut wrenchingly obvious language I can come up with delivered without giving in to the urge to scream it into anyone's face.
(We Monoterrians sometimes DO that as we tend to come to believe you Earthlings must be deaf as you don’t seem to be able to hear us. I have tried to tell some of my fellow “off world-ers’’ that shouting into the wind in the town squares is not working for any of us, no matter what planet we may come from, as it is defined simply as a ‘symptom’ and therefore meaningless to the observers. Some of them now believe I am on the ‘side’ of the Earthlings, while the Earthlings still tend to believe they too must protect themselves from me and my unwanted ‘awareness.’ 

What’s a Monoterrian to do? ...Well I will try this method here and see how it goes so stay tuned, no matter which planet you may be from...


[1] This I.D. should not be confused with the people labelled on Earth with the same term. from MY point of view it apples to the NON labelled people who are projecting their own split minds onto the people to whom they are applying the label. i.e. Psychiatrists are often ‘secret’ projectors.

Your Emotions Are Not Diseases

 They do not need to be eradicated. They are more like the brain’s OnStar system, used as guides to help you navigate your way through life. They signal you that something may be amiss and that there may be a better alternate route to take on your journey. It is up to you though, to LOOK at the map of your personal terrain and decide what may work better than the route you are currently following, in a way that will keep you from crashing and also avoid hitting anyone else along the way.
