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.

Abstracting Experience and Then IMPOSING the Abstract on Others

Well I hear through some of those conversations I like so much to hallucinate with my bad brain, that some of you are having trouble understanding what I mean by abstractions, in absolute terms, as related to psychiatry.

Dictionary Definitions:

Abstract- considered apart from concrete existence or a particular example. Expressing a quality, or property, separate from the person or thing possessing it...little or no connection with objective or observable reality.

Abstraction- the act or "process" of removing or separating.

Here is an example of one such abstraction used often in psychiatry.

"They (we defectives) often think they have been harmed by others."

This is not an objective judgement; it is a subjective one which is being passed off AS objective.

"Thinking" you have been harmed by "others" is not a "symptom" of "mental illness" as an abstract idea, apart from individual, or concrete experience, unless EVERYONE who thinks that is mentally ill based on the belief, in absolute terms, that no one is ever harmed by others.

Is that true? Yes or no? If no, then it can't be defined as a crazy idea, even if it is included on a psychiatric "shopping list" attempting to give it validity. Having six items on a list, under a heading of "nuts", all being promoted as abstract truth, does not make each idea any more, or less, valid, in relation to the others.

If, therefore, this is not really objective, then it is subjective and political, and not medical. I think one of the biggest effects that this kind of thinking creates is that many criminals are being excused for their crimes, often "diagnosed" after the fact, and many victims are being abused all over again, by a system that invalidates their experience by blaming their brains for perceiving it, or reacting to it, "incorrectly."

It has to stop. Let's bring back some critical type thinking and stop blindly following leaders who can never be questioned or blamed for ANYTHING, no matter how bizarre THEIR own thinking may become.

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!”
