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.

Calling All the Professional Alternate Reality Creators

Another example of how "you don't know what words mean" directly relates to context or con-text. (smirk)

For example, patients trying to penetrate you resistance to hearing have often said to you something like this, when talking about their experience with a group:

"They keep trying to put THEIR thoughts into MY head."

You of course, hearing this as a "symptom" in that self-contained defective who sits before you, have given that statement your usual reductionist treatment and named it, "Thought Insertion."

(Similar to the nexus language of est, as a true abstraction, apart from specific detail)

Nevertheless, what the patients are saying, perhaps not as articulately as they might, especially when they are dealing with people who have a predetermined MEANING already in mind, for anything they are GOING to say, is:

The people who are invalidating me and assigning themselves the roles of my unwanted "interpreters", are re-inventing my reality for me, and my very obvious experience with THEM, by projecting their OWN "interpretations" of reality, onto me, so THEY don't have to let go of their own error or look at themselves as the ones with the problem.

Oh, and as distasteful as it may seem to those of you still supporting "The Family Romance", it is very often dysfunctional family members who DO this, for the same reasons that other groups do it and then deny it all. As I have said before also, Alice Miller mentioned this in her own books. The group behaviour is a part of the defense of the group dysfunction. It all exists in society in general.

Here is an example out of my own experience in this:

While shopping at Value Village a few years ago, I was evaluated for other employees by an employee at the front, also a Homewood "graduate" I believe, and a 12 Stepper. She pointed me out to another staffer from about seven feet away. That one said, "Why is she looking at the clothing labels?" the one who had pointed me out responded, "Well that is so she can see if these clothes are GOOD enough for Her...."

Now one way I might have of describing that experience with my "interpreters," all now understood by me to be "hiding" in plain sight, might be..."Why that two faced one there seems to be trying to put HER thoughts into MY head." (aka Projection)

This is also an example of those "normal" people who are "fabricating." So please get THEM the "help" they obviously "need." For you see, it is not REALLY about WHAT is happening. It is about WHO as defined by a dysfunctional group, is being assessed and defined by WHOM.

In reality, (my OWN as defined by me)I was looking at the labels then, and still DO, because I no longer buy clothes made of polyester, which often masquerades as many other fabrics. I am now a cotton, rayon or silk kind of gal. But then, my looking at clothing labels was not the real point anyway. The point was to invalidate me for doing or not doing...(?) basically invalidation for invalidation's sake. So any "interpretation" of pretty much anything I say, or do, will work as well. That is so that those who are DOING the invalidating can use the contest they think they are in, to FEEL better about themselves. You know? Being objectified by them for that "reason" (purpose) but without "reason." (logic)

It also helps them to "bond" with each other.

To add more "mystification" to it, MOST of the people who act out like this consider themselves to be "hidden" from those they evaluate.

Now think again.

Patient: (many of them) "They do this all the time. They try to put THEIR thoughts into MY head.

(The frequently fabricating "normal" people.)

Imagine what it must be like to have to keep telling a doctor, who has total control over your rights and freedom, the TRUTH s/he can't HEAR, no matter how many times, or how many different ways, you say it.

Some of us don't HAVE to "imagine" what that is like.

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.

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?
