The Meta Issue 

Power, Control and Domination over Others,  as opposed to,

Self contained, Self actualization with Boundaries 

The world generally loves the power rush of the first without considering that what goes up too high must always come back down.

 


Philosophical Question for You
What if on a certain plane of human consciousness thought and communication actually existed on a universal and timeless level? How would that change our understanding of ourselves and of our overall existence?

 

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.

 




In Scandinavian research, ... mobbing is seen as an extreme social phenomenon, triggered by extreme social stressors, causing a range of negative effects, such as biological and psychic stress reactions.

Take the time to Listen. It is about 45 minutes and expresses the long overdue need for great change in the awareness of those assessing and evaluating everyone elses.

Mad Perception

By Patricia Lefave, Monophrenic

This is a short perception exercise for "normal" people.

The Humane Society gets a call from someone telling them they have spotted a mad dog in the neighbourhood, potentially threatening their safety so the team is sent out to find it and bring it under control. Once under control they are to bring it into the shelter for assessment.

After a long search, one of them spots the dog and hollers to the other, "There it is; let's get it!"

A long intense chase follows with the dog running desperately in an attempt to escape capture. Finally though, they get the mad dog cornered and while one officer slips a snare collar around it's neck, the other gets out a tranquilizer gun... just in case.

The dog struggles, snarls, strains against the snare around it's neck, bares it teeth at the animal officers and snaps at them repeatedly. It looks enraged, crazy, wild eyed, out of control. So they shoot it with the tranquilizer and it finally drops, unable to escape in any direction.

Here are your exercise questions:

If you were the DOG, how would those two animal control officers look and sound to you?

If you were NOT really a mad dog at all, but only the target of someone's story and of their irrational fear of dogs, what would you feel and what would YOU do if you were in that dog's situation?

Do you understand the fight or flight response? It is triggered by epinephrine (adrenaline) and is the fear/anger response to boundary violation and being trapped in situations with NO WAY OUT. Why don't you all just think about that for a little bit; just for "fun."

Logic Exercise
There are many platitudes and aphorisms used by humans as conversation or debate stoppers. This is one of my favourites of the idiotic concepts ideas.

 

"That is just the exception which proves the rule."

 

Dissect this statement in logical terms and explain how it is used as part of the splitting and defence group phenomenon of dysfunctional relating.


Everyone Was Just Shocked
Do you know why you are always “shocked” when a smiling, friendly, socialising type person in a position of authority turns out to be a serial killer? It is because you live in the same fantasy world that the killer promotes to hide himself. He is hiding behind the same mask; smiling, friendly, socialising authority who expects everything he says and does to be accepted without question. Any problem is thought to be in those who question him, and not in him, and/or in those who support and obey him. He is often the one he says ‘there is no ‘I’ in team’ because HE is the ‘I’ who is controlling the team.  

Question your assumptions and beliefs!

To Comply, or Not to Comply? 

And is There Really a 'Choice'? 

This is called the practice of free speech which I am using here and which my democratic country claims to cherish and protect as a 'right.'

The system likes to pay compliant consumers who will promote the system at the same time that it invalidates and silences those who speak out against it. It is not at all uncommon that threats of further 'treatment' are used to silence the opposing viewpoint.

Have you ever noticed a common denominator in those who promote the system? Listen carefully to their personal stories and you will hear it, again and again.  By common denominator of course I mean other than the fact that they are often well known as writers, politicians, actors, sports figures, singers and other public faces.

Let's think about that for a bit shall we?

As one of my old elementary school teachers used to say, (while using “hand actions”) “Let's pull on our thinking caps!”
