Agreed society is...well...fcuked.
(i don't get paid for that subliminal either ;P)
but capitalism? I admit i don't know what that is exactly, i've always gotten confused about that & communism etc.
I did recently have some old self taught observations defined for me with the proper words in order to enable me to discuss them properly (less
abstract ways) and I think the problem is the materialist/dualism mentality & the western education over the last 50-60yrs+its impact on the way
children are raised, all of that+ technological advancements increasing at a rate faster than our understanding of said technology is able to keep up
with. dangerous dangerous exciting creatures we are/time this is.
However trauma caused problems are a totally different thing to what i'm talking about & life is often a little more complicated then just 'society
did it!'...it would be nice if it were that simple/easy....
Instead of dealing with trauma caused issues obviously caused by the traumatic events, my idea looks more at the combination of the general external
influences of society that the majority deal with, and that the majority are equally quite zombie like & plod along refusing to ask questions. this
combination of an inability to deal with sh1t when it hits the fan, is caused by the bombardment! bombardment! bombardment! & outgoing energy day
after day...wearing people down...this mind numbingly boring & un-natural existance could be like torture for the mind & the soul. out of pain and
desperation the mind/soul compensates with a mental disorder. shake things up a bit, keep things interesting.
Totalstranger -fits my ex-girlfriend perfectly lol
chiron613 There is no evidence to support the notion that an understimulated brain will create additional personalities. At most, it will sometimes
create hallucinations, as sensory deprivation experiments suggest....
I was expecting a reply like this...nowhere did i claim there was any existing evidence of my theory, but this is obvious to most as A.)Its a theory
B.)just a thought i had this morning & C.)its just a theory.
let me take this opportunity to say that it manifested in my mind out of nowhere, no chain of preceding thoughts, just POP! there it was. not based on
any prior official psychological study or recognised qualifications. I didn't even think it out, it manifested instantaneously in its entirely & i
wrote it down. So to come at me with a bunch of established fact & technical blather is pointless because firstly it goes over my head & secondly I'm
talking about my idea being an ADDITIONAL possible cause, not a replacement, i'm asking whether its that crazy to be open to the possibility of my
idea being 'on to something' or 'worth its salt' and perhaps something of value that should be tested by smarted people than i with time to
commit. I won't be able to dicern such things by simply having prior knowledge regurgitated back to me by someone who would know doubt kick my arse
at a game of cards called 'memory', which, like the lack of evidence to support my theory, is irrelevant.
thanks for your interest all the same & welcome you to further contribute constructively if u have more to say
alot of the techy blather went over my head but what i was able to comprehend i agree with. my mother was on anti-depressants for probably 15yrs or so
of my life, and as it was only a few years ago she was able to stop using them i know some of what you mention regarding chemical imbalance, also
definately know that yes to identify the imbalance as the systemic root of the problem, is ig'nant.
I know what my mum suffered from was due to childhood trauma & not being able to separate from her ego, step into the 3rd person, to re-evaluate
reactions & behaviour in reoccurring events, unable to break the patterns that caused her suffering....although due to other methods she found a way
to work through things & she has been doing quite fantastically for some time now
I'm sorry to hear about your girlfriend, several of my family members have gone through similar things.
dunno, I have heard this, but not done any real research of my own.
But your understanding should expand to include realising that those events alone would not solely be responsible for all mental problems, to assume
that would be silly no?
