In light of my recent blood test analysis, I’d say Satan is “over the moon” with my progress!
Initially, I blamed my brother-in-law for corrupting my son. He influenced him with his own ideology regarding “God” and that ideology was basically “only stupid people believe in God”. I was raised in the Catholic tradition and felt close to my faith. I had believed in the Superior Being of the Judeo-Christian religion and I wanted my son to know him too. I did this by placing him in Catholic educational school systems. Using game theory, there can be no arrived at, definitive conclusion to the question, “Does God exist?” The only arrived at conclusion could be is that it is impossible to actually “know God” because “God’s” status is one of “indeterminacy.” And borrowing from Blaise Pascal’s work, Pensées (1760), his arrived at position was not as to whether God exists or as to whether God doesn’t exist but whether or not it is reasonable and justifiable for a person to believe in the existence of a Superior Being with supernatural powersin an uncertain world. And, under those conditions, it is very justified for any prudent person, in an uncertain world, to believe in a Superior Being such as the God in the Judeo-Christian world. But Pascal also said, “One understands nothing of the works of God unless he starts from the principle that God willed to blind some and enlighten others.” My son’s uncle’s famous tout as well. A statement where he implies, he is not blind and has a better dominant strategy than just to be a “follower”. In game theory, it’s all about dominant strategy. What’s your best dominant strategy in the game?
Initially, I blamed my brother-in-law for his corrupting influence over my son. However, I failed to address the fact that my son, in light of his full intellectual faculties, is capable of arriving at his own conclusions. My son does not believe in any Superior Being with supernatural powers as written about in the Hebrew Bible and neither do I anymore. Of course, I believe in Superior Beings without supernatural powers; although a well-developed, well-polished, and near-perfect mathematical prowess comes pretty darn close to superhuman power in my opinion. It is, nonetheless, a mortal talent and skill revealing a person’s level of IQ. Since I placed him in an educational school system that fosters Christian faith, I assume he performed a formal search for the “Superior Being” known as “God” and, with the aid and guidance of my brother-in-law, arrived at a decision using the payoff matrix of Pascal’s wager; Person does not believe in God and finds that God does not exist where the payoff in the matrix is: “Nonbelief Justified with finite rewards.” This is the dominant strategy of many intelligent people in positions of at least some relatively dominance and power over themselves and others. Of course, this is not the dominant strategy for everyone. There are some individuals whose best dominant strategy is to believe in “God” and become one of his “followers” where the arrived at best possible payout would be to believe in “God” and believe “God” existence where, if using Pascal’s wager, the payoff matrix is: “Belief justified (for whatever reason or arrived at conclusion “God” made himself manifest in the individual’s life) with infinite rewards both on Earth and in Heaven.” Of course, this was the case for Eve when she resided in the Garden of Eden with Adam. Whereupon she chose to “eat the fruit”, as instructed by the Serpent, and to which she found herself expelled from “Paradise.”
My reason for wanting my son to come to know “God” was because I hoped it would foster character traits important for service and good leadership. I believe I achieved this in that my son, as he is sensitive and carrying, and capable of empathy. So, the fact that he does not believe in “God” is irrelevant now. I believe I did a fairly decent job at raising him. Although, this was a shared responsibility between myself and other family members. I cannot take sole responsibility for outcomes. There were many influencing individuals in his life.
Searching for “God” can make for a wonderful, sometimes delusional, and mind-altering experience. It is, however, the best mind-altering substance on the market as there are little to no side effects. At least, in my opinion.
In this writing, I try to utilize philosophical principles in game theory to analyze the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking, electronic stalking, electronic targeted physical assaults, and psychotronic torture. Specifically, with stalking cases that have gone on for years as in protracted conflict of war. I am hoping my writing makes some sense.
In game theory, one of the most famous rational arguments for believing in “God”, that is to say, the Superior Being (SB) from the Hebrew Bible, is that of Blaise Pascal whose approach was decision-theoretic. That is to say, Pascal’s approach did not assume we play games with “God”, in which “God” actively chooses strategies. Instead, he supposes that each person makes a calculation about whether or not believing in “God” in an uncertain world is justified. Pascal also believed that a prudent person, in his cosmic ignorance, should bet his life on believing God exists. In game theory, this would provide the “ignorant individual” with the best possible outcome (#4 in the game matrix payout) with “infinite rewards both in life and upon death.”
First, is it justifiable to believe that all individuals suffering electronic stalking and electronic torture at the hands of someone suffering a “God Complex” is rational, logical, and justifiable? The answer is, No. Simply because not all individuals suffering this experience may be “hallucinating” their experiences. Second, might one be inclined to believe the target suffering electronic torture may be perceived as “an ignorant individual” by someone suffering a God Complex? The answer to this is Yes. I’m confronted with the problematic of how to prove this “invisible entity” carrying out the electronic torture exists and is not a figment of the victim’s imagination. I find in a research study conducted by Sheridan, James & Roth in 2020.
To quote from Stephen Brams, Game Theory and the Humanities: Bridging Two Worlds,
“This kind of choice is a decision in a one-person game, or a game against nature, wherein “nature” is God or some other Superior Being (SB). Unlike a player in a two-person game, “God”, if He or She exists, is assumed to be neither benevolent nor malevolent, though I do suggest … the Search Decision becomes more like a game if God or SB can influence the choice of a state of nature.” (pg. 70)
That is to say if God or the Superior Being can influence the choice of a state of nature (God exists vs. God doesn’t exist). In the protracted conflict found in the Book of Exodus, the state of nature that proves God’s existence was the ten plagues he inflicted upon Egypt. However, according to Stephen Brams’ theological opinion which is suited for his analyzing whether God exists or not in game theory, “God” becomes a neutral or indifferent player in the game. Certainly, Brams could not arrive at a more politically correct decision than this!
It is here I would like to make a point to clearly elucidate our world has become far less uncertain and far more knowable, providing principles of certainty, thereby making “belief in an SB,” such as the “God” of the Judeo-Christian religion, less and less justifiable. In fact, the entire phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeting (Global Positioning Systems and other electronic weapons utilized for targeting in warfare), and electronic targeted physical assaults, and psychotronic torture, is to make “the game” less unpredictable and far more controllable for the dominant players in the game, and, even more, constraining for those players without superior knowledge and access to advancing technology or the means to somehow acquire and utilize such forms of technology for military defense. To illustrate further, consider Brams,
“I do not analyze the so-called proofs of God’s existence (or non-existence) … In an excellent synthesis of the literature, beginning with Descartes, on the existence of God, Hans Küng (1980) argues that all such proofs are flawed, and I share his view. In place of proof, Küng argues for a “rationally justified” faith, which of course does not have the force of a logical proof but, as the subtitle of his book suggests, is “an answer for today.” This answer according to Küng is rooted in developing a fundamental “trust in reality”; Pascal’s wager may be seen as a reason, perhaps cynical, to develop this trust.” (pg. 70)
It is here that I like to make yet another point in regard to Hans Küng’s principle of “trust in reality” (1980) and the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking, electronic stalking, electronic targeted physical assaults, and psychotronic torture in that it mimics an “act of God,” but is decidedly being carried out by mortal human being(s) posing as “a God; agent provocateur”, as a primary conspirator, or co-conspiratorin a protracted game of conflict. According to Küng, all proofs on “God’s” existence as an SB are flawed. In place of proof to the existence of “God,” Küng argues for “rationally justified” faith, however, this argument does not provide logical proof. The answer, according to Küng, is developing a fundamental “trust in reality,” and using Pascal’s wager to demonstrate how the development of this “trust” is arrived at and then using Bram’s reframing of it as a Search Decision we arrive at some philosophical understanding in game theory regarding the purpose of electronic torture in the phenomenon known as Group (Gang) Stalking. It is these three (3) elements taken together; “trust in reality”, Pascal’s wager, and the Search Decision that when they all come together, we begin to understand its purpose. Its purpose is to unhinge and unravel P’s arrived at the decision that “the Superior Being in the Hebrew Bible [“God”] exists.” In the absence of torture, this is the arrived at a logical determination for many players without resources in “the game,” even those who have suffered natural losses as the consequence of everyday living. That is to say, players who, due to no fault of their own, remain disenfranchised. The right for one to believe in this “God” as part of the Judeo-Christian faith is protected by the 1st amendment, which violates all targeted individual’s 1st amendment rights as well as their 4th amendment rights.
Pascal’s Wager, Trust in Reality, and the Search Decision
Pascal’s Wager assumes a person is in a betting situation and must stake his destiny on some view of the world. In his or her search for proof in (1) believing “God” exists, or, (2) believing “God” does not exist. The agnostic assumption stated in №223 of Pascal’s Pensées states “if there is a God … we are incapable of knowing what He is, or whether He is,” and “reason can settle nothing here … a game[!] is on.” What is more, is the fact that the SB’s existence remains indeterminate because the information that would settle this question is unattainable. Brams more accurately perceives “God” not as an individual but as “a state of nature.” The problem with that assumption is that it is in contradiction with the games played in the Hebrew Bible. For example, The Temptation Game (Gen. 3:1–6), Abraham’s Sacrifice (Gen. 22:1–13), Ten Plagues of Pharoah (Exodus 7–12), and a whole host of other games every student of the Bible would be familiar with. As far as my personal experience, electronic stalking, with electronic physical assaults and psychotronic torture is similar in nature to the protracted conflict in Exodus between Pharoah and Moses and the Israelites. In this game’s payoff matrix, the best possible outcome for “God” and Moses was to continue the “plagues” thereby revealing “God’s” power (#4=the best possible outcome), allowing Moses and the Israelites the freedom “to leave the country,” thereby leaving Pharoah and the Egyptians impotent. What is even more interesting is that God’s “plagues” are listed as “part of the state of nature.” For me, the analysis that most accurately describes “God” is most certainly as “a player in the game,” and one who makes conscious decisions based on what the other players do. He also reveals himself as one who is suffering from narcissistic personality disorder. An Adolf Hitler, if you will (see Donald Capps, 2009).
“Trust in reality” is one of Hans Küng’s fundamental principles playing into game theory that states, “I say ‘Yes’ to the uncertain reality of my own existence and of the world,” and as such, I commit myself to reality, relying on reality, allowing it to gradually unfold its meaning to me.” This postulate is most certainly held by those in positions of powerlessness and where P’s cosmic ignorance, weakness,powerlessness would certainly foster belief in a “Superior Being’s” existence in their reality, as such the “God” from the Judeo-Christian faith.
When I use the following terms, “cosmic ignorance,” “weakness,” or “powerlessness” I mean P’s ignorance in such fields of study such as geology (the understanding of geological forces), meteorology (the understanding of weather events), medicine (how disease proliferates), agriculture (how pestilences are deterred), psychology (understanding your opponent’s mental states), physics (understanding the principles and laws that allow fundamental physics to operate in building bridges, tall buildings, and landscapes, etc.) and so on and so forth. Speaking of pestilences, no other bug infestation could be as great for a human being as the one in which a person’s life is being surveilled through various electronic means. But, nonetheless about that; by “weakness” and “powerlessness,” I mean people whose free-wills are capable of being molded in order to be “lead and subjugated by someone with the dominant power.” I also mean by these two terms, those without the power to convince and influence others with their version of “truth,” as Nietzsche suggests. Nietzsche’s early essay, “On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense,” argues that Nietzsche believes the very idea of “truth” to be a lie. Truth is not an elephant that we must look at from multiple perspectives under this view and that, but rather truth is simply the name given to the point of view of the people who have the power to enforce their point of view. The only reality is the will to power. The truth, like morality, is just another fig leaf placed on top of this reality.
In addition, by using the terms “weakness” and “powerlessness” I mean, disenfranchised people such as the ancient Israelites who were dominated by superior power (Pharoah) under oppressive conditions. This has formerly made-up mostly the lower and middle classes. Certainly, those with advanced intellects and IQs need no proof of his “non-existence.” Additionally, one might consider the influence of the Pope and other church authorities on the followers of the Catholic faith, and too, consider how the Roman Catholic faith was not above physical torture to exact their power over “Other” in influence people’s decision making with regards to which faith they applied their energy (Murphy, 2012).
In the Search Decision, if P does not have any other dominant strategy, his or her best decision is to believe in “God” and “play the game of religion.” And here we can use a very useful quote by Blaise Pascal (Pensées, 1760/1950);
“One understands nothing of the works of God unless he starts from the principle that God willed to blind some and enlighten others.”
It is the Search Decision that may be employed to facilitate the dominant player’s position in exacting their punishment against the targeted subjects through electronic torture. This is a noncooperative game, where information is incomplete, and to which, in the end, there could only be one winner and one loser. A zero-sum game as in the protracted conflict in Exodus.
For, if meaning is to be derived at from human physical torture, what does its meaning tell us? Of course, there are many things this meaning tells someone. Here is a list of some I have deduced:
(1) There are sadistic dominant players in the world who are not above torturing others for pleasure (Lyons & Jonason, 2015; Krick, Tresp, Vatter, Ludwig, Wihlenda & Rettenberger, 2016; Johnson, Plouffe & Saklofske, 2019).
(2) That no matter how “faithful” or “good” one might adhere to their religious faith, “bad things happen to good people.”
(3) That a tortured life may not be worth living, for any former quality of life that may have existed before the subject’s electronic targeting has been usurped by the abuser.
(4) If the tortured subject (game player) still has any ounce of faith left, it might provide him/her some relief from their pain. (Consider the Book of Job)
Again, the aspect of indeterminacy, not only as to the reason for electronic torture but in establishing the identity of the “God” reigning over countless people, torturing them, making their life miserable, makes it difficult to ascertain what he or she truly wants. Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture seems to be a game of incomplete information, but one that is clearly a noncooperative game as the players seem to be diametrically opposed to one another making it a zero-sum game with one winner and one loser. This begs the question, “Who is really winning? Who is losing? It would seem the electronically targeted individual is losing out.
Of course, Blaise Pascal’s agnostic assumption, though during his lifetime may have been more relevant, today is completely flawed in my opinion. In today’s 21st century world, we have advanced and fostered the branch of academic study known as Psychoanalysis. It is, therefore, possible to know who “God” is as the SB of the Hebrew-Christian Bible through forensic profiling (see Donald Capps, 2009). Thus, forensic psychoanalysis lends itself to our understanding of what “God’s” nature actually represents. That is to say, what he represents to P’s search for him in their reality, although may provide peace in keeping the faith. In today’s world, we have identifiable markers we’ll call attributes that provide us the ability to establish identity (Elmer, 2003; Humphreys, 2011; Wang & Tucker, 2017). These traditionally are the attributes; first name, last name, birth date, social security number, address, driver’s license number, car registration, religious affiliation, and political orientation. These attributes all come together so that every individual’s identity can be known in the world. Along with these attributes we have physical traits such as; hair color, eye color, gender, weight, height, tattoo markings, and birthmarks. These make up the physically identifiable traits that allow one to become recognizable in the world. “God’s” indeterminate status does not allow “P” to know what these attributes are because he has chosen to hide them from us. We can most certainly understand the perpetrators’ of electronic stalking, electronic physical assaults, and psychotronic torture purpose for hiding these very identifiable attributes. They choose not to reveal themselves explicitly, but implicitly through the arrival at scientific forensic analysis. Most specifically what they hide are their gender and name. Although any student of psychoanalysis studying gender theory can discover the masculine / feminine behavioral attributes associated with individual behaviors. The study of such concepts can allow one the ability in establishing a perpetrator’s gender orientation and identity. Or are we to assume anthropomorphism in all cases where identity is not known? Although “God” chooses to hide his identity from his subjects, he has left clues about his personality. Of course, I assume “God’s” gender, hair color, eye color, weight, height, religious affiliation, and political orientation change, as one would expect, when old rulers exist and new rulers take over.

Being a woman and a student of feminine psychoanalytic theory, I have come to believe that the person carrying out my electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture (assaults against the female body) possess an amalgamation of Freudian castration complex fears along with the sexual perverse fantasy of watching the female flesh expand thereby dehumanizing the target through rendering the target immobilized with diminished mobility and mental capacity. This is certainly what has happened to me when forced into sleep through electromagnetic stimulation/sedation thereby ushering in weight gain by blocking movement and exercise. This offers up a very interesting clue to the pernicious thoughts of the perpetrator. He/she very well may find pleasure in humiliating their targets. In addition, the perpetrator may find the thought of fat/inferiority/weakness/pregnancy extremely distasteful as it does not constitute a form of social capital in the ability that allows one to move freely within a woman’s environment. It has been said the most vulnerable position a woman can place herself in is in the state of pregnancy. Some people may associate “pregnancy” with “fat” and thereby inferior vulnerability. This is not surprising as the female expanding body, as in pregnancy and later, as women age are sometimes seen as the iconic “matriarch,” (the dead mother) can be viewed as just another humiliating aspect of patriarchy and Father Time’s denial of youthful beauty and playfulness. That is, as in sexual youthful playfulness (see the Paranoid Schizoid Position).
Many feminists have talked about this fear of the female body (fear of pregnancy and the fear of turning into one’s mother as women age; that iconic matriarch) lurking in the dark shadows of their own psyches and which promotes their hostility not only toward male dominance, but also hostility towards images of youthful beauty and anger at their own aging body. That is, their own aging body that represents the uncontrollable aspect of the pre-Oedipal terrain; ambivalence. This certainly plays into castration fantasies on multiple levels and not just towards the female self as seen in plastic surgery and invasive cosmetic treatments, but in the annihilation of Objects in one’s relational world (object relations theory) as observed in the paranoid-schizoid position and the repetitive assaults against female flesh in rape. The expanding aging body is just another aspect of this fear as the body loses elasticity with old age and is prone to weight gain and other bodily distortions that belong to aging. It’s not only women who possess these narcissistic fears (though they may be childish and infantile), but it is also men who possess these fears towards female flesh (the female pregnant body and the female aging body) as well as their own aging bodies. It is, for this reason, I contend that the Vanished Pregnant Body or Vanished Post-Delivery Body not only belongs to the psychology of women, but to men as well. If we consider the following written by Rosemary Balsam’s in “Women’s Bodies in Psychoanalysis” in Chapter 3, The Vanished Pregnant Body in psychoanalytic theory:
“A pregnancy [and therefore a pregnant body] might be viewed as female/inferior/irrational, being that most earthly of states, a symbol of woman as “body” to man’s “mind,” the fruit of guilt-laden sexual intercourse, the result of unseen meshing of ungovernable genetic codes. Even modern psychoanalytic clinical observations could be thus unwittingly affected so that pregnancy remains invisible in theory (or marginalized and bracketed in spite of the blatant presence and visual command of any pregnant woman who walks into a room of children and their richly evoked fantasies. …
The history of the medical vision of the female body suggests speculation on an abiding tendency in Western culture — in both men and women — the need to distort the female bodily configuration while making theories. My own speculations about how this may come about involve universal unconscious fears of pregnancy that are held by both men and women. This differs from the usual psychoanalytic view that the primary confusion about the anatomical distinctions between the sexes resides in concerns about phallic primacy (for both sexes — in their castration anxiety). We may not need to choose between the biological male or the biological female because major fears appear to involve both, rather than either/or.”
In this light of this information, we may also view the female pregnant body or large maternal body (post-delivery) with its enlarged breasts, buttocks, thighs, belly as that uncontrollable territory from infancy and childhood, and the division that separated us from her, that forever sought-after human flesh we find so maddening. It would be far too easy, and safe, to dismiss it as just another battle between the sexes. Safe, because this would help obscure and block any further required investigation into the subject matter and into what it really represents. Because that would expose its deviant perversion rooted in identity and problems with object relations. The creative perversion in transcending this fleshly boundary of maddening pre-Oedipal phase is found in the use of an electromagnetic tether and the use of the medical doctors that allow the perpetrator total control over his/her own fears surrounding that uncontrollable, ambivalent, maternal order. Perhaps, even as this creative perversion constitutes the balm for his/her own wounded narcissism that allows for the humiliation of the “Object Other” (see Jacobs, 2007, pp. 77–82). A humiliation that is rooted, not in empathy and compassion for, but in hatred and annihilation of an Object through paranoid fears.
And certainly, as a “fat body” and distorted female bodily configuration (body inflation fantasies and feeder fantasies) touch upon the inferior/irrational states of being and one that is of the most earthly of states (the human condition), guilt-laden uncontrollable indulgences at the pre-Oedipal breast, which ties into unconscious sexual fantasies in aspects of a forced nipple in the mouth as the canvas of that pre-Oedipal arrangement, and of the hedonistic sexual enjoyment that follows which are the roots of human intimacy and eventually sexual intercourse. The result of unseen meshing of the phallus with vaginal opening/mouth orifice. Nipple as phallus and life-giving nourishment and phallus as the nipple.
In the creation of a sexual perversion of the female body, that uncontrollable terrain becomes the controlled and governed Object that was once ungovernable and uncontrollable, perhaps even terribly unforgiving, to us. It is for this reason; the paranoid-schizoid position is part of both male and female abnormal development. The same paranoia that is rooted in the psychology of the male’s desire toward rape violence, is also rooted in the psychology of a female’s desire toward violence against the female flesh.

DEFINITION: The Perverse Structure as psychoanalytic disavowal. The pervert disavows castration; he/she perceives that the mother lacks the phallus, and at the same time refuses to accept the reality of this traumatic perception (Lacanian Theory). This psychoanalytic theory plays into homosexual compromise but it is also rooted in personality disorders such as the paranoid-schizoid.
I contend with adversarial arguments that insist the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture are delusions and hallucinations made manifest from the diseased mind. As a person who has suffered electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture as part of her stalking, I have had my ability to speak impaired through remote artificial electronic stimulus that induces sedative states. The American culture has been steeped in racial conflict simply because our founding forefathers wrote into its nation’s legal instrument a doctrine with deep caustic roots which is near to impossible to excise from the social order (see Butler, 2021). The historical-based dichotomy of “valuable groups” and “nonvaluable groups” dates back centuries to past various Inquisitions and Holocausts that tend to isolate certain groups from the main group. That is to say, isolation from the group that possesses the dominant power. In light of this information, we might consider the Department of Defense’s work with Google in uncovering “Deep Fakes.” Deep Fakes are video/photos and audio recordings of individuals speaking a specific dialogue but who, in fact, never spoke the words. These are the latest in the tools of counter-intelligence, espionage, and the spreading of lies. In fact, there is a new app in the Google Play Store called “Re-face.” I had a bit of fun with it and anyone can download it for a free trial period.
I contend with any adversarial argument that the technology of Deep Fakes is built into the technology of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture as tools of audio surveillance in recording possible time voice signatures and the creation of “data”. I say this because an aspect to this technology is “listening” (intelligence gathering). As such this data, just like a photo or video, can be subject to corruption.
This technology also usurps an individual’s identity from the targeted subject and reshapes it to the desire of the controller/operator/agent. Consider Bourdieu’s argument that language is primarily shaped by nation-state supporterswhose desire is to influence an elite-based standard of linguistics. But this is not just limited to linguistics, it also ties into forming and shaping the conduct of the subject and can play into Lacanian perverse scenarios. (See Butler, 1997; and Friederich Nietzsche’s Genealogy of Morals; Georg Wilhelm Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit.) Combine this argument with the argument that analysis of symbolic power in relation to political institutions concerns itself with the separation between professional public figures and the general public and the purpose for this separation is to reduce the public to the status of “consumers.” (Bourdieu, 1991, p. 172) This aspect of control places the symbolic power in the hands of certain homogenous groups who desire may be to promote their own personal ideologies and political positions. “This separation, [Bourdieu] argues in “Political Representation,” is one that leaves professionals with the cultural capital to create political products, programs, and campaigns, but to do so within a limited set of options.” This makes sense when we consider the entire criminal purpose of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture exists as a mechanism for controlling certain targeted individuals. “The limited set of options” we might conclude, as in the case of the Colonial Pipeline hack, was the resulting prosecution by the Justice Department of the criminal group known as Darkside which provided a means to dike and recuperate damages resulting from these cyber-attacks. (Please see Justice News, Justice.gov, Monday, June 7, 2021.)
The symbolic expression of language can be used as a therapeutic mechanism as artists have used creative mediums to arrive at closure upon a subject matter. Painters, sculptors, engineers, writers all use their crafts as a means of expression. But symbolic expression can also become a creative perversion with detrimental outcomes for certain groups. If we read the silencing of various groups during the German Holocaust; Jews, Jehovah Witnesses, homosexuals, and the disabled as a cause to their “nonvaluable” status and the more modern event of ransomware attacks that target suspected wealthier middle- or upper-class individuals and organizations to pay money to entitled criminal groups. The perverse solution is perhaps closer to the truth than a sham if we know how to read its silencing and denial correctly, and as Janine-Chassegeut Smirgel tells us we are all open to the perverse solution because creative problem solving is rooted in the human psyche. As she tells us, “…all of us are open to the perverse solution which constitutes a balm for our wounded narcissism and a means of dissipating our feelings of smallness and inadequacy. This temptation can lead to our losing the love for truth and replacing it with a taste for sham (pg. 24).” The person carrying out my Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture represents as “a Lacanian pervert” for all intense purposes of this psychoanalytic investigation in that it represents “a disavowal of a denied phallus (e.g.; the little boy’s/girl’s ability to castrate).” The truth that is exposed is in how he/she gets around the inescapable nature of natural human destiny with his/her feelings of smallness and inadequacy. He/she cannot allow the natural course of events to transpire uninterrupted. He/she must re-divert destiny to an alternate world of his/her own creation. A creation where he/she will reign as the supreme creator God (through sadistic attacks) in an alternate reality. Hence, we arrive at an understanding and purpose for the world of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. Except, torture is a felony!

Friedrich Nietzsche is critical of the very idea of objective truth. That we should think there is only one right way of considering a matter is only evidence that we have become inflexible in our thinking. Such intellectual inflexibility is a symptom of saying “no” to life, a condition that Nietzsche abhors. A healthy mind is flexible and recognizes that there are many different ways of considering a matter. There is no single truth but rather many.
At this point, interpreters of Nietzsche differ. Some argue that Nietzsche believes there is such a thing as truth but that there is no single correct perspective on it. Just as we cannot get the full picture of what an elephant is like simply by looking at its leg or looking at its tail or looking at its trunk, we cannot get a reasonable picture of any truth unless we look at it from multiple perspectives.
This is a critical point I have arrived at when analyzing the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with Electronic Targeted Assaults and Psychotronic Torture. The main “go-to” assumption is that this phenomenon represents federal or state authority’s interference into the private lives of its citizens under the historical aegis of “Mind Control.” When in fact, what may be the problem is one of any number of, or multiple of things, such as domestic violence, intimate partner stalking, organized gang activity targeting the gang’s perceived enemies, a real estate scheme to move occupants and conquer territories, a conspiracy within a particular state government, a conflict between business partners, etc., and so forth. And I am not discounting the idea that it may be an invisible war being carried out in response to the torture of many Muslims owing to the “dirty tricks” instituted by former President George W. Bush’s War on Terror following 9/11 and the opening of Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba.
Just a recap and brief history, the Bush administration decided in February 2002 to abrogate the Geneva Conventions regarding detainees. Then it created a legal justification for torture by defining the term in such a way — it must produce pain “equivalent in intensity to the pain accompanying serious physical injury, such as organ failure, impairment of bodily function, or even death” — that most acts of torture fell outside it. This standard was embodied in the so-called torture memos drafted in 2002 by the Justice Department lawyers John Yoo and Jay Bybee; those documents did for the twenty-first century what the papal bull Ad extirpanda did for the thirteenth. With that threshold in place, the Bush administration drew up a list of techniques — including isolation, twenty-hour interrogations, nudity, hooding, standing for long periods of time, deprivation of light and sound, the use of dogs — and conveyed the list to interrogators on the scene. In fact, many medical doctors were present during the sessions of torture carried out at Guantanomo Bay.
It is no surprise that Guantanamo Bay Naval Base was chosen. It represented a legal black hole. It was not part of the constitutional homeland, the Bush administration argued, or subject to the same legal standards that might be obtained within that homeland. Detainees could therefore be subjected to any legal regime the authorities decided to implement.
Then, following the 2011 raid of Osama bin Laden’s compound, poll research discovered an increase in American’s who believed that “torture of our foreign enemies should be carried out and is deemed “appropriate.” The problem, who and how do you define a “foreign enemy?” When many people perceive blacks, women, homosexuals, immigrants, transgender, the mentally ill, and countless others as “the other,” the “enemy” may very well become any person who represents difference.
Still other interpretations of Nietzsche’s work, particularly those who value Nietzsche’s early essay “On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense,” argue that Nietzsche believes the very idea of “truth” to be a lie. Truth is not an elephant that we must look at from multiple perspectives under this view. Rather, truth is simply the name given to the point of view of the people who have the power to enforce their point of view.The only reality is the will to power, the truth, like morality, is just another fig leaf placed on top of this reality.
Herein lies the compound paradox: whose “truth” do you believe to be closer to the actual events that have transpired in history and whose are farther away from deception? That is to say, “Are the victims who claim to be electronically stalked with electronic and psychotronic torture in their environment really “mentally ill” or is this a reality someone is trying to impose onto reality, using a term I arrived at, through defunding social capital by implementing torture? (See Pierre Bourdieu’s 1991 work entitled “Language and Symbolic Power”).
Advancing Technology: Replacing Nietzsche’s concept of Christianity with a twenty-first-century enemy
An aspect of Nietzsche’s work was the concept of “Christianity as a life-denying force.” Here, we might make the leap to “advancing technology as a life-denying force” in that, similar to how Nietzsche viewed Christianity as fundamentally opposed to life, so too advancing technology in the control of others offers those in the position of political power the ability to deny life itself.In fact, many medical doctors control much of this power. Much like how the mechanisms of control operated during the Medieval Inquisition, efforts that were driven by political rivalries and personal agendas, the deployment of any device of surveillance in a program to advance state authority and establish power operate in much the same way. And this is most definitely what we observe when we observe the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture in defunding of someone’s mental capacity (their very social capital) through torture.
In Nietzsche’s doctrine, one aspect of the will to power is that the will to power is a psychological insight: our fundamental drive is for power as realized in independence and dominance. This will is stronger than the will to survive, as martyrs willingly die for a cause if they feel that associating themselves with that cause gives them greater power, and it is stronger than the will to sex, as monks willingly renounce sex for the sake of a greater cause. While the will to power can manifest itself through violence and physical dominance, Nietzsche is more interested in the sublimated will to power, where people turn their will to power inward and pursue self-mastery rather than mastery over others. An Indian mystic, for instance, who submits himself to all sorts of physical deprivation gains profound self-control and spiritual depth, representing a more refined form of power than the power gained by the conquering barbarian.
On a deeper level, the will to power explains the fundamental, changing aspect of reality. According to Nietzsche, everything is in flux, and there is no such thing as a fixed being. Matter is always moving and changing, as are ideas, knowledge, truth, and everything else. The will to power is the fundamental engine of this change. For Nietzsche, the universe is primarily made up, not of facts or things, but rather of wills. The idea of the human soul or ego is just a grammatical fiction, according to Nietzsche. What we call “I” is really a chaotic jumble of competing wills, constantly struggling to overcome one another. Because change is a fundamental aspect of life, Nietzsche considers any point of view that takes reality to be fixed and objective, be it religious, scientific, or philosophical, as life-denying. A truly life-affirming philosophy embraces change and recognizes in the will to power that change is the only constant in the world.
The major question becomes, “Who has any right to subjugate and force change on others as seen in the torture of Mohammed Al-Qahtani at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, and the many electronically targeted and psychotronically tortured Americans living as civilians within the borders of the United States of America?” (If you do not know who Mohammed Al-Qahtani is, look him up! If you possess even half a conscience, you may be appalled at what you discover.)
Historians At The Desk
Henry Charles Lea was one of the most accomplished American historians of his era, and at his desk, in his library, he produced three weighty tomes on the Medieval Inquisition and four volumes of equal heft on the Spanish Inquisition. The achievement is all the more remarkable given that Lea had almost nothing to work with: the relevant research materials simply weren’t available in America during this time. His family was educated and wealthy which worked to his advantage. He was schooled at home by private tutors and when he came of age, he used his wealth to form a very impressive library. He wrote to booksellers across Europe, acquiring what he needed. Libraries and monasteries lent him original manuscripts. If manuscripts were for sale, he purchased them. If they could not be borrowed or purchased, he had them copied. It was a good time to be a book buyer at this time because the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars had upended the nobility and the Church. As a result, countless libraries had been dumped on the market.
Henry Charles Lea (September 19, 1825 — October 24, 1909) saw the Inquisition’s work less as a purely religious undertaking than as an effort driven by political rivalries and personal agendas, as would be true of any program advanced by any state power or entity establishing their own ruling authority, state or federally endowed or not.
The perspectives of Phillipp van Limborch (Historia Inquisitionis) and John Locke (Letters of Toleration), who were both close friends, viewed the Inquisition as one of the most imposing counterexamples to the state of affairs an enlightened polity should embrace.”
Just as Juan Antonio Llorente questioned in his published monumental work, Histoire Critique de l’Inquisition d’Espagne, the following inquiries:
“How did the Inquisition’s bureaucracy actually work? What happened on a local level, on the ground, when decisions were sent forth from the tribunal in Madrid? What role did the Inquisition come to play in politics? What long-term effects did it have on Spain’s national life — for instance, on its intellectual vitality and its economic development?”
So too, one might ask the same questions of the phenomenon known as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. That is, “How do they operate on a local level, on the ground, when decisions are being sent forth from the originating pulpit of power?” Even though a state political authority may or may not be involved in its deployment, the implications are definitely political and more likely to be a self-establishing sovereignty.
If you’re interested in what you can do if you are suffering from gang stalking and electronic targeted physical assaults, psychotronic torture you can jump to the heading“Want To Know What You Can Do? Here is What You Can Do.”
Since I write about the phenomenon known as Group (Gang) Stalking, electronic targeted physical assaults, and psychotronic torture all of which are content narrative to the phenomenon, people ask me, “But what can I do to stop it?”
When first asked, my initial thought was, “I’m not really sure.” As my investigation expanded, I realized that what has been occurring between persons suffering the phenomenon of the Targeted Individual (TI) is that these persons are engaged in a GAME with an unsub or unknown assailant. When viewed this way, the person has to understand that it is a game they are expected to play. And whether or not they want to play the game is irrelevant. Because the purpose of the game is to elicit a response, more accurately put, force a change in the person. So, my response to the question “What can I do to stop it?” has changed from an, “I’m not really sure” to a, “Have you ever studied game theory?”
When we view the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL, we have to understand that game theory in strategic operations and warfare is what is needed to finish the game. Since most people don’t study game theory, they may not understand what their choices are, and understand what the possible outcomes to their choices might be in choosing a DOMINANT STRATEGY versus a MIXED STRATEGY. A dominant strategy is the course of action taken by a player that results in the highest payoff for a player regardless of what the other player does. A mixed strategy incorporates the possibility of all the choices in a game like (Rock-Paper-Scissors) and where game players pick their best personal strategy. It also helps if you know who your opponent is, and for this reason, it requires a bit of knowledge in war room techniques as well. Similar to how the FBI engages itself while hunting down an active serial killer whose identity is unknown. The GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL seems to be a non-cooperative game rooted in competition.This means, it is a game where there is competition between individual players, in which alliance can only operate through credible threats and where value is ascertained in the coalition itself.The key distinguishing feature of a non-cooperative game is the absence of external authority to establish rules for enforcing cooperative behavior. It makes the most sense then THE GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL IS, in fact, A NON-COOPERATIVE GAME. We have supportive evidence of this because there are no known laws establishing sexually promiscuous (“whore”/ “prostitute”), alcoholic, marijuana smoker, or some other type of marginalized group such an intravenous drug user an illegal social status condemnable by court-enforced punishments.
Police officers often “partner up” in protecting each other’s back in cooperative game theory. I have written a letter to an ex-FBI profiler, I have gone to my local police department, I have contacted the FBI by submitting a complaint online. I also wrote a letter to the Department of Justice (not really sure what good THAT has done) as well as wrote a letter to my state department’s division of Law and Public Safety. As a person who is currently an electronic target (TI) and a person who has formerly suffered from addiction issues, the purpose of the game seems to be to elicit a change in the person.This most likely explains the purpose as belonging to a type of non-cooperative game theory. If you consider John Nash’s theory, Nash’s Equilibrium,which is a decision-making theorem that states “a player can achieve the desired outcome by not deviating from their initial strategy.” How do you get a game player to make a change in their choice when there is no incentive for him to do so?And the answer to that question is by making life so unbearably painful he has no other choice but to make a change.This establishes it as a non-cooperative game rooted in competition.
Centuries before John Nash even wrote about his theorem, the ancient writers of the Bible were well informed on game theory. As comparative literature to the recorded research regarding the phenomenon (Sheridan, James & Roth, 2020) as well as the Book of Job, we can illustrate how “the Satan”, provoking God regarding his faithful follower Job, by saying to him; “Have not you yourself put up a hedge about him and about his house and about everything that he has all around? The work of his hands you have blessed, and his livestock itself has spread abroad in the earth. But, for a change, thrust out your hand, please, and touch everything he has [and see] whether he will not curse you to your very face [Job 1:10–11].” So, what does God do, he allows Satan to torment Job just to see whether or not Job’s “free-will” might be changed. Job is transformed through the enforcement of purposeful loss of property and children by Satan as well as made to sacrifice through physical pain and suffering (torture) his health and wealth, reduced to a shadow of his former self for the purpose of change. Kohut would call this creative aspect of Satan/God’s narcissistic design, a necessary attribute for possible growth and development away from their destructive psychic forces, but it is also this same creativity that sets up for us narcissism’s antithetical aspects which is its very infantile destructiveness. As a result, Job becomes angry at God for punishing him for no good reason. Similar to how the TI feels about being mandated to sacrifice and lose through the physical pain of torture in the absence of any good reason. Of course, this theory makes the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL highly unorthodox, inhumane, and illegal. And as I said before, is a non-cooperative game that is based in individual competition between players in game theory.
The choices for the targeted individual, since he cannot directly stop the invisible electronic assaults, maybe a number of different choices. One, he can temporarily or permanently change his physical location by leaving his property/environment. Say for instance, by visiting a friend or selling his property. If he is using substances like alcohol or street drugs, which people may certainly think he is “crazy” and “delusional” and must certainly be “hallucinating” these “experiences” because of the substances. In this case, he may want to stop using drugs or alcohol as a dominant strategy which is the course of action taken by a player that results in the highest payoff for a player regardless of what the other players are doing in the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL. Perhaps the TI is sexually promiscuous. As a woman, I have on many occasions heard people claim me to be a “whore” or “prostitute.”In this case, the dominant strategy of choice would be in choosing the behavior of chastity. And these are all possibilities that are antithetical to the basic respect of persons as well as antithetical to US Constitutional Law but still available to us in the study of game theory. Whatever the reason, the purpose of the game for the Targeted Individual is to prompt or move the TI to make an alternate behavioral choice(s). It is up to the TI to decide through intuitive deduction what those alternate choices may be, and what they mean for the player in moving towards better “constructive social action” in a movement toward a “cooperative game.” Or supposedly their “best social selves” because in cooperative game theory there is no competition (sexually, individually, aesthetically, or otherwise),only a coalition of players working toward the same goal which establishes the value of the coalition. This is why I believe one of the purposes of electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture is a form of“social grooming.”
There also seems to be a connection to the psychoanalytic theories of Heinz Kohut in his “Forms and Transformations in Narcissism.” Kohut recognized the personality attribute of creativity was necessary in order for highly narcissistic persons to transform their problematic narcissism (antisocial behaviors) into more constructive and socially acceptable modes of action. People addicted to drugs and alcohol are believed to suffer from a form of narcissism that is socially destructive and antisocial. Highly promiscuous women may also be suffering from a form of destructive narcissism, but is it illegal? Are there legal codes that mandate the enforcement of all players to engage in and play specific cooperative games? Similar to how such occupations, say, as public figure and detectives are expected to work. Also, people suffering from various types of personality disorders, as outlined in the DSM-V, suffer disproportionately high levels of narcissism. This is to say, people suffering from addiction are not necessarily suffering from a personality disorder, and people suffering from a personality disorder are necessarily suffering from addiction (drugs/alcohol). But are either illegal? So, this line of philosophical debate, if we believe what is being presented to us in this argument, reveals treatment to an otherwise marginalized population (the Targeted Individual), and not necessarily psychiatric treatment but treatment nonetheless, that is antithetical to the basic respect of persons and violations of their basic civil rights of individuals.
It would most definitely appear that “the Satan” is suffering from a form of narcissistic personality disorder, as is “God the Almighty”, in that he is envious of the fact that Job demonstrates an upright and blameless faith and commitment towards the Almighty. And “the Almighty” is envious of anyone who doesn’t solely worship him. So herein lies the paradox. Are the “Gods” (and I include “the Satan” as a God) that are carrying out the antagonistic assaults against the TI most likely in possession of a personality disorder?Probably so!Can they be treated for the difference they represent by playing the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL with them? Probably so, but that would only reduce the Targeted Individual in to the likes of an evil predator.
Similar to how strategic operations analyze the aspects of various military advancements, carefully considering outcomes, so too is this required of the TI. In other words, REFLECTION AND CAREFUL THOUGHT TO ONE’S ACTIONS. Which, incidentally, is also required in the recovery program of Alcoholics Anonymous. This is the GAME THAT THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL has been thrown in the middle of … a full-blown-out war in which an unknown assailant is split against them because of their difference. An in the game of War, knowledge of strategy and game theory is critical. And even then, the Targeted Individual is at a disadvantage because similar to how an active FBI investigation into an active serial killer, the identity of the killer cannot be easily ascertained. Sometimes, it is never known or discovered. Do you know how many unsolved murder cases there are in the crime vaults of police agencies throughout America? So, how is one to catch an invisible enemy?
NAPOLEON’S FATAL KNOT: Advancing technology is an infinite game much like Napoleon’s Fatal Knot of warfare
Is the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL a finite game or an infinite game? Business is an infinite game. A soccer game is a finite game. The answer is, it appears the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL may go on into infinity until the TI starts making the right choices like abandons his property, quits drugs and alcohol, establishes new friendships, or dies, whichever comes first. Since there have been no rules of engagement outlined in the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL by its controller and initiates, it is hard for the game player to know what the purpose of the game may be. But it would appear that the game is antithetical to healthy growth and development Heinz Kohut was talking about in his Forms and Transformation of Narcissism. That is to say, its purpose seems to suggest the type of oppression inflicted by people suffering narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).
WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU CAN DO? HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO
If you are being Group (Gang) Stalked don’t go anywhere alone. Keep a pen and paper handy at all times or an electronic notebook that you can easily access to record, times, dates, and detailed descriptions of people, places, and events. Have a witness who can corroboration your story and provide supportive evidence to what you are saying will help greatly.
If you are being electronically targeted in your home, move outside of your living space. Go into the backyard if you have one, sit on your front porch, take a walk, or get in your car and visit a friend. These are temporary fixes and may or may not work but they often can and do help. Some targeted individuals have made the radical choice of relocating. They sell their homes or give up their apartments and move to alternate housing. Some report this game choice has eliminated their suffering, and some have said it has not.
Contact your local police department and tell them what has been going on. If you are being harassed by a neighbor, let the authorities know. If you have gathered enough evidence or you have suffered some type of conflict or falling-out with a boyfriend, a relative, a co-worker, a business associate, or someone else make sure to tell the police about it. Group (Gang) Stalking and electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture may more likely be the result of some type of conflict within your social group rather than the result of random serial crime. In fact, if you report it to the police, they are most likely to ask you who your enemies are and if you know of anyone who would have incentive to harm you. I have personally read books written by forensic scientists and other authors, people who have worked in the field of forensic investigations. I have written these authors letters and received a response. Some may not respond but many of these individuals will respond because they are by nature helpers within their communities.
Call your local FBI field office for advice and guidance. Tell an FBI agent what you have been experiencing with regard to your stalking and electronic targeting. Ask for any helpful tips and inquire if the FBI agent was placed in your position, what would he/she do? And don’t be discouraged if they think you’re suffering from “mental illness.” It’s not the news everyone wants to hear, but it could be a possibility. If you want an objective investigation done, consider all the possibilities. The reason for this assumption regarding TI’s mental health is that some targeted individuals believe their electronic targeting is being done by space aliens from another planet. This does not bode well as “serious content narrative” nor does it make a valid excuse for consideration in investigating your case. Alternately, there have been recorded cases where local police officers are carrying out the stalking. No one is above the law and the FBI would certainly be interested in any misconduct occurring within local police agencies.
Call your state department’s division of Law and Public Safety or write them a letter. The electronic targeting that is occurring threatens the public welfare and as such deserves the respect and attention of local state authorities. It’s not too hard to make the connection between the Colonial Pipeline Hack (ransomware attack for the acquisition of monetary funds and/or property acquisition). Electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture are no different from these types of attacks. The only difference is that people’s bodies are being hacked into versus computer mainframes. Both have central processing units (brain/microchips).
A few years back, well maybe more than just a few years back, my dad was still alive. I was greeted at the lunch meat counter at my local Ewing Shop Rite by an old acquaintance. Will call him “Joe.” He was a former acquaintance from a former lifetime.
But in order for you to understand the whole picture of my story, I need to explain a few things. The time period this “meeting” occurred in was a few years after a sexual assault I reported to my local prosecutor’s office. I was sexually assaulted by a person I was familiar with and with whom I trusted. Following the tragic and sudden death of a close relative, I relapsed into drug use again after 5 years of sobriety. After this sudden death, I had begun to work out a lot to ward off the anxiety I felt about not being accepted by my family. As a result, I lost a lot of weight. One night, while out with one of my “friends,” my “friend” kept encouraging me to use again. I resisted attempts several times and, then, at the last moment, before leaving the bar, I gave in. This was the point of a trajectory.
When women are sexually assaulted while actively using drugs or alcohol as part of their lifestyle choice, they are usually recommended to a rehabilitation center. A few years after my sexual assault, I was forced into treatment. I then made a conscious decision to never use street drugs again and to distance myself as far as I could from the people I had previous associations with. That was in 2006. Although I would still imbibe alcohol a few times a week, I had come to a point in which I could actively imagine a better lifestyle for myself, free from my former associations.
Then, one day at the lunch meat counter, “Joe” tried to strike up a conversation with me. He asked me about a former boyfriend I had dated while I was between the ages of 19 and 20 years old. Let’s call him “Dean.” I was very cold and stand-offish to “Joe” because he had instructed “Dean” to push my head into a couch chair and hold it there one day while “Dean” and I were in the middle of an argument. Because of Joe’s guidance, Dean physically assaulted me. Because of this I always viewed “Joe” as a predator and most likely a psychopath. Who encourages a guy to physically assault a woman? Aren’t men supposed to respect a lady? I don’t believe anything that comes out of this man’s mouth. Joe was also with a woman at the lunch meat counter who had light reddish-blonde hair, and I believe light-colored eyes although my memory is a little faulty. Joe kept referencing this woman with glances for guidance from here. Joe apologized to me and said he truly didn’t have any memory of those specific events. He said he was “sorry” and asked if “I would forgive him?” I looked at him like he was a plague of locus come to destroy my crops. I said, “No.” I couldn’t care less if he could not remember those events from that day or not, and I told him in no uncertain terms, to basically, “FUCK OFF!” I told him I had been so far removed from my former lifestyle I used to entertain in my early adulthood that I didn’t want to know any of those people anymore. Recovery is about avoiding people, places, and things and also because I believed that probably half of my former associations were either psychopaths or sociopaths. People who had been ill-informed about the purpose of life, just like myself. The lifestyle I had led, active in the drug culture and bar scene, no longer plagued me simply because I actively chose recovery and now preferred a healthy lifestyle. I told him I was healthy and a practicing vegan and exercising daily. He then told me that he had “cancer” and was “dying” and “would I please forgive him.” This is the classic ploy of psychopath/sociopath. A “feel sorry for me” game card pulled from the trickster’s bag of tricks. They feign some type of “struggle” and try to win you to their side through sympathy. I’ve seen it a million times.
I believe Joe’s occupation is as a day contractor, although I’m not certain of this. But, in any event, why would I grant a liar forgiveness? I could feel the aversion toward Joe and Dean reverberate in every part of my body. I had allowed myself to be manipulated by men who were rotten and no good for me. Joe had asked if “I wanted to see Dean again.” I thought to myself, “What the fuck do you think?” I replied, “No.”
Honestly, I might have never come to this point in my recovery unless I had been raped which ended the trajectory events, a trajectory that started with my relapse in 2003. A distasteful and bitter pill to swallow; it truly was a revelation that unveiled itself before my eyes. It had somehow pulled all those dark puzzle pieces together to show me that what I had been doing was seriously wrong, even though I secretly knew this deep down inside of me. Such are the lies we tell ourselves. I believed that “my drug use was okay” because “everybody I knew was doing it.” I had even heard of some professional doctors who did it. And besides, these people were my “friends.” Certainly, a friend wouldn’t victimize me. Would they?
Of all the Creepypasta, this story could make one of the best urban legends although it is far from being a myth. The story where the girl who believes it’s okay to get drunk or use street drugs because everyone, she is with, is also doing it. And so, she must somehow be “safe” is far more common than you think. The myth that “surely these people would “respect” me because we commonly identify with one other” is never a certainty. In fact, when considering the nature of man, it is mostly not true. How could a bunch of people that don’t know how to respect themselves be informed about how to respect others? So, my cold and stand-offish stance towards Joe was a psychic defense elicited by a predator who had presented himself to me. I was trying to stay safe.
Shortly after this, my electronic and psychotronic targeting and torture began. I became known as a Targeted Individual. How does this play into the possible reasons for my targeting? Honestly, I don’t know, simply because there are so many other events to consider in my timeline as well.
The most important point I want to make regarding my electronic targeting, psychotronic torture, and group (gang) stalking is this. Over the platform Quora.com, when I discussed my experiences as a Targeted Individual. I was greeted with a response from a man, presumably white, who informed me “it’s because you can’t imagine something better for yourself.”What the fuck? Really? That’s the reason!? The reason I deserve to be tortured and punished!? This means the reason for my targeting is rooted in difference. It is rooted in the difference of identity. It is rooted in the things that divide us and not join us together. The targeting implies that I am not favored because I don’t belong to the right “social grouping.” This is an age-old phenomenon that has gone by many names throughout human history. Most noted for these horrors, based in difference of identity, were the Jewish and Christian holy wars from the Bible (Pagels, 1995), witch trials (Hill, 2002) and other religious inquisitions as well as the many genocides that have taken place over the ages (Santner, 1990). We could look to more modern events like what happened in Charlottesville Virginia. Where on August 11–12, 2017 a Unite the RightRally took place. Many far-right supporters of white supremacy actively protested including the groups alt-right, neo-Confederates, neo-fascists, white nationalists, neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and various right-wing militias. As a result, conflict, and fights broke out when counter-protestors supporting the proposed removal of the statue of General Robert E. Lee from Charlottesville’s former Lee Park. Later a counter-protestor was killed by rally participants who purposefully and willfully drove his car into the crowd (Berreby, 2018, pp.48–49). It is far more than a science of race. It is a science of psychoanalysis, object relations, and identity. The “feverish pitch” that ensues after the realization of a collective narcissistic wound suffered, has marked historical events like the end of World War I and the events that spoked the Charlottesville race riots. Facts tying events of white supremacy and a crisis of white masculinity, to a prior time in American presidential history, when a black Senator from Illinois took the oval office which was immediately followed by a fascist leader.
“In a review of Cullen Murphy’s book, Edward Peters writes, “Murphy ponders ‘what . . . any inquisition really is: a set of disciplinary practices targeting specific groups, codified in law, organized systematically, enforced by surveillance, exemplified by severity, sustained over time, backed by institutional power, and justified by a vision of the one true path. Considered that way, the Inquisition is more accurately viewed not as a relic, but as a harbinger.’ In this sense then, Jane Mayer, author of “Dark Money” writes, ‘Cullen Murphy finds the ‘inquisitorial impulse’ alive, and only too well, in our [modern] world.’”
Subnote: My original studies began with an investigation into religious philosophy as I was educated in a Roman Catholic school system for 13 years. Later I would take up Bible study in my young adult life, between the ages of 23–25. As a result of my early education, I was influenced to pursue readings in religious philosophy as conflict is often rooted in differences of religious identity (Capp, 2009).

Freud himself admitted that his perspective on femininity was limited and what little he did contribute to the field of psychoanalytic was from pure observational points of view in what he considered to be “feminine behaviors.” Women to Freud, as well as the subject of femininity, must have been no different than any other psychoanalytic riddle that needed unveiling. To further this exploration, I will consider the theories of Nancy Chodorow, Lucy Holmes, Julia Kristeva as well as some other psychoanalysts and philosophers and make an investigatory attempt in unveiling “the fractures and faultlines of femininity.” This psychoanalytic investigation will undoubtedly unveil the “peculiarities” of the psychotic psychoanalytic text of object relations expounded on the original writings of Freud’s castration complex known as Oedipus. This approach opposes aspects of normal healthy development, and as we will see has several connections to the aspects to the psychotic text of Western culture (splitting) as a distinct picture of developmental immaturity as one of the faultlines of both femininity and masculinity in human development. Another interesting aspect of development will be revealed in how we learn to navigate humiliation.
Since violence and aggression are behaviors considered to be a human problem, rather than just one belonging to the masculine gender, studies have shown that serious violent and fatal aggression, as behavior peculiar to animal competition, are carried out at higher rates by the masculine gender and that femininity contributes far less to this human problem. However, this is not to say that possessed femininity is not without its own set of peculiar fragilities and faultlines. Research studies tell us that women are less likely to carry out acts of serious and fatal violent aggression (homicide), but there is a small population of women who kill their children and this can be evidenced if we include into our consideration the abortion rate.
One of the first elements of Chodorow’s theory is connected to the idea of identity which can include aspects of national, ethnic, religious, and gendered identity as her theory deals directly with Islamic terrorism. “Humiliation seems in some way to affect men and women in different ways can be expected from the classical Freudian account of challenges to phallic narcissism and from feminist descriptions … beginning with Horney, of the humiliation of being a little boy in relation to grown women (Chodorow, 2012, pp. 130).” However, the theory Chodorow develops she calls The Achilles Complex ties directly into Freudian castration anxiety/complex (Freud’s Oedipus) and borrows on the masculine Father-Son vertical and its power dynamic as witnessed in Freud’s patient Little Hans and Han’s fear of his father’s large and castrating phallus (Freud, 1909; Freud, 1924; Chassegeut-Smirgel, 1984). In order for us to uncover the fractures and faultlines of femininity it will require an understanding of the work of other feminist authors, philosophers, and psychoanalysts writing on the Mother-Daughter relationship and its power dynamic rooted in the paranoid splitting of Melanie Klein, and to which Chodorow and Lucy Holmes both borrow from as well.
To reiterate from my previous post, “The Fragilities and Faultlines of Masculinity,” based on the theory of Nancy Chodorow, borrowed from Freudian psychology and re-worked through Kleinian theory, we know that immature development contributes to the fragilities and faultlines of masculinity as well as femininity. We can say this because Chodorow’s Achilles Complex is based on the myth of Achilles who is “a junior man” humiliated by the actions of a superior officer, Agamemnon. To recap Chodorow’s theory:
“The psychic fault lines of masculinity and male selfhood express two developmental and fantasy components: first, maleness as not-female, the male self as defensively separate from and warding off the other [mother/feminine], defensively needing to split self from other if hatred takes over [and this hated object is first psychically introduced to small child in early development as the maternal “Object Other”];second, maleness as adult man rather than boy-child, not humiliated, shamed, or defeated by another man [forged originally in the father-son affair of Oedipal relations.](Chodorow, 2012, pp. 135).” …. Furthermore,
“…. this developmental context, issues of selfhood [self-identity] as well as of gender [gender identity] tend to differentiate men from women, such that the male’s sense of self may typically be more defensive and in need of protecting its boundaries than the female’s typical sense of self.(Chodorow, 2012, p. 130).” ….
“Humiliation, specifically, is especially a male-male — originally father-son — affair. In the normal developmental course of events, much hinges on how a boy relates to his father and turns into a man — the delicate negotiation of this transformation, of identification, of how to replace or join without bringing on retaliation, castration, or humiliation. All of these, in turn, depend partly on a father’s own sense of confident masculinity and selfhood.… (Chodorow, 2012, pp. 131).”
Might the same be said of femininity and the female self originally configured in the mother-daughter relationship? And what’s more, how does humiliation play into the original mother-daughter affair? Indeed, it does and those outcomes will be discussed later.
To continue, we can certainly say that immature development (being a junior man/young man) bears a part in the fragilities and faultlines of masculinity because mature, intelligent men, possessing normal, healthy, and secure development seemed to be better suited in navigating humiliation as their secure sense of self forged in the original secure attachments of the father-son relationship as well as the mother-son relationship balance out the loss encountered and to which these men’s self-identity and gender identity are neither threatened by feelings of femininity/homophobia nor does it require them to make a display of their “sense of masculinity through physical prowess and physical power.” That is to say, these men feel secure in their self-identity, are intelligent to know better, that masculinity sometimes requires accepting losses and these realizations occur as a natural consequence through the natural course of development we call aging (Erikson, 1982). So while mature men encountering a loss, although the loss may feel uncomfortable and foreign even humiliating, possess a strong degree of healthy problem-solving creativity rooted in their secure sense of self, and seemed to be more accepting of ruptures because their experiences and possessed feelings of assuredness in their identity, knowing that this loss will not “define them as weak/powerless/feminine/non-masculine,” and knowing one must sometimes “try again” in order to overcome failures. This does not seem to happen with regard to the immature stages of human gender development and/or those possessing abnormal developmental attachments known as ambivalent attachment, avoidant attachment, and disorganized attachments, (Wallin, 2007) and high levels of narcissism requiring high degrees of narcissistic supply (wins over losses). This is not to say, that individuals possessing these attachment styles will go on to victimize others with serious or fatal violent aggression either. Its reference here is completely an indexical sign but not guaranteed in terms of future risk of perpetrating violence. Of course, something must be said regarding how these two faultlines of masculinity play into authoritarian types of personalities and dictatorships. As a result, women tend to be far less physically aggressive but tend to use much more social strategy and “game” with regard to their gameplay and utilize more passive-aggressive violence which contributes to their social intelligence. Whereas men, because of how they were socialized with regard to identifying with their father’s phallus as well as being taught what it means to be “a man”, tend to exert their identity more in terms of physical strength and male-patterned dominance which often is displayed as violence.
The Fragilities and Faultlines of Femininity
To begin, women, borrowing from Freudian psychology, tend to be much more masochistic as we witness higher rates of anorexia and bulimia among women as well as female rates of self-cutters in self-harming behaviors but also their desire for self-castration fantasies such as plastic surgeries (Knafo & Feiner, 2006). So, regarding “the fragilities and faultlines of femininity” one similar type of possessed psychoanalytic characteristics is immaturity which may be due to abnormal development, play into the psychological dynamic to serious and fatal violence and aggression against the gendered self. The traits Freud termed “peculiar” to femininity which he observed as “high degrees of possessed narcissism,” is a young egocentricity — a defensive need to “hold the male gaze”, may also play a role in the fragilities and faultlines of femininity. The key defining characteristic between the two, masculinity and femininity, is in the way the genders defend against loss. As a general rule, women already have to navigate the lost phallus at an early age, this fact seems to bear a part in how women also handle future losses. Women’s lost phallus becomes her “deficiency” and so, are socialized to be submissive to the phallusand from a very early age may introject the lost phallus as her “deficiency.”
Women’s possessed sense of, and desire towards, aesthetic beauty may bear a part in the destabilization of her feminine identity as women tend toward possessing high degrees of vanity in combination with high impression management thereby contributing to the faultlines of her femininity. This peculiarity seems to be in line with the same type of immature development (egocentricity and defensive need to hold the male gaze) and/or abnormalities in developmental attachments to the mother-child affair as well as the father-child affair. This is to say, women tend toward fear in “becoming their mothers.” That is to say and to borrow from Nancy Chodorow, the first faultline of femininity is femaleness that is “not like Mother” in a defensive need to split the self from the Object Other if hatred takes over. When this happens, women experience castration fears of aging such as loss of aesthetic beauty, self-doubt and wondering about her own value, become completely foreclosed about becoming a mother herself, or feel threatened when placed against other powerful female Objects. When we witness this psychic defensive need of femininity displayed in women, what we witness is far lesser an aspect of masculine physical strength and prowess exerted against an Object Other. Although there has been crime statistics reported as this happening within a small population of women who kill, which has been eloquently termed “femme Fatales”, what is more commonly observed is passive-aggressive violence occurring against Object Other (in a defensive need to split the self from the Other, internalized mother, if hated takes over). That is because this all-powerful Mother figure could feed and nurture us or abandon us and leave us to die. For some, these unconscious fears may remain to stay strong within the unconscious and may develop into borderline personality disorder (Silberschmidt, Lee, Zanarini, and Schulz, 2015).
Additionally, because this maternal object has been incorporated into the psyche and identified with as the maternal Object because of shared genitalia, women are more likely to exert violence against the self as opposed to the Other outside herself, as she herself possesses the Object Within in the triangulation of her psyche of Mother-Father Self(Holmes, 2008, Holmes, 2013). She can become psychotically foreclosed against any possibility of a heterosexual development and/or instead develop a homosexual or transgender lifestyle as a creative compromise to a problem as well as develop sexually deviant creative female perversions. “If a little girl has no penis to prove she is not her mother, she can introject the mother (Holmes, 2013).” In a similar vein, if a little girl has no penis to prove she is the father, she can introject the father’s phallus. Likewise, if a little boy has no vagina to prove he is like his mother, he can introject the mother’s vagina creatively through phantasy and/or fantasy (Knafo and Feiner, 2006).
When a little girl introjects their mother, the little girl is able to gain mastery over the maternal object which is both feared, loved, and hated. This psychoanalytic truth holds true for the little boys as well who introject the father through identifying with his penis. What we observe in cases of humiliation forged in the original mother-daughter affair, and I am going to theorize here based on my readings, as is the development of homosexuality (lesbian, and transgender homosexuality, anorexia-bulimia, the development of feminine machisma, and the idealized phallus, and other forms of violence against the self; such as excessive body manipulations and plastic surgeries, abortions, and other self-defeating behaviors such as excessive promiscuity and using the body as a prop “sex object” as a defensive need, as well as the ultimate denial, suicide, in the formation of abnormal identity and object relations.
If we consider Freud’s phrase, “anatomy as destiny,” we can accept the following: “We all, men and women, have an unconscious impulse to control and subordinate the female sex, and this is because our first object in this world is a powerful woman who can feed us or let us die. We all, men and women, have to find our own ways to subdue and contain this loved and hated figure, and boys and girls find different solutions to this universal problem (Holmes, 2013).”
We can now borrow from the writings of Julia Kristeva who wrote in her “Stabat Mater:”
“When feminists call for a new representation of femininity, they seem to identify maternity with this idealized misapprehension: and feminism, because it rejects the image and its abuses, sidesteps, the real experience that this fantasy obscures. As a result, maternity is repudiated or denied by some avant-garde feminists, while its traditional representations are wittingly or unwittingly accepted by the “broad mass” of women and men.”
Lesbian Homosexuality and Forms of BDSM in Deviant Sexual Relationships (fetishes)
To expound further on the fragilities and faultlines of feminity we look to the writings of Simone de Beauvoir who said all the complexities of feminity can be explained through the fact, that in this world, women function as a “deficient Other” (de Beauvoir, 1952). I interpret this quote as implying that a woman is perceived as a deficient Other when she is without a masculine counterpart (a husband) with which to complete and guide her in the world. This implies there is not only a need for a healthy connection to what women experience as “femininity” but also a need for protecting its integrity for all forms of socially acceptable femininity (homosexual, transgender, masculine dominant female, and otherwise). This requirement may move us toward a healthier understanding of the differences in object relations, with regard to femininity, with an importance placed on issues surrounding boundaries and mergings and what those “boundaries” and “mergings” mean for a properly socialized acceptable feminine identity. Speaking from personal experience, the female creative perversion I have developed as a way to unconsciously control and subordinate the female sex manifests as homosexual phantasies. I believe this is my unconscious impulse to control and subordinate female flesh. In all sibling arrangements and childhood relationships there exists this unconscious impulse or wish to control and subordinate the female sex. The question is whether or not the individual will be successful in satisfying their potential defensive need to control and subordinate this “Object Other” without harming the object of her affections.
Nancy Chodorow wrote French psychoanalysis through Lacan and structuralism argued that gender and sexuality are always in the partial realm of culture. “Our bodies, masculinity, and femininity are named linguistically. Our identities, fantasies, and desires are filtered through our parents’ own linguistically infused fantasies, through cultural stories, and through institutions like marriage, parenthood, religion, and politics … When we come up against these findings that each clinically particular individual has his or her own personally individualized sexuality, whose description requires much more than a generalization about the sex of the object in relation to the self (Chodorow, 2012, pp.155–156).”
In the above statement, we get a good dose of caution from Chodorow alerting us to generalizations about sexuality. This information contained herein this post is meant to be taken as informative information gleaned from accredited psychoanalysts and philosophers.
In another form of sexual deviance, we witness this unconscious impulse to subordinate the female sex through something called Bondage and Discipline in Sadism and Masochism (BDSM). This form of sexual deviance allows for the very real potential for “binding female flesh with props.” These props can be used by the subjects as counterphobic defensives (counterphobic objects) that help us to navigate, defend, and ward off our anxieties surrounding our defensive impulses to control and subordinate female flesh as well as to be subordinated by. The element of consent is a crucial aspect of this type of sexual deviance. These props, leather straps, ropes, chains, other medieval restraining devices as well as electronic stimulation toys (eStim) may be used in counter defensive to the powerful unconscious wish to control our early childhood Objects (mother/father). More recently there has been concern over newly developing technologies used for electronic stimulation (eStim toys) and service security surveillance technologies in pursuit of “potential threats” to the security, prosperity, and freedom of American democracy. Christine Weiland wrote, “Culture, as a space where the working through of fundamental human problems takes place, constitutes a container; culture, as an ideal and a prohibition, constitutes part of the superego. For the individual, the solution to any particular psychic problem will depend on both his/her object relations as well as the cultural space.” She also expressed fears towards advancing new technological inventions which would place matricidal destructiveness in the hands of people possessing infantile anxieties. In “Sex and Death in the Rational World of Defense Intellectuals,” Carol Cohn had lucidly demonstrated in her writing the lethal aspects that result from the social embodiment of, or the acting out, of unanalyzed phantasies belonging to the male imaginary (Wieland, 1996; Jacobs, 2007; Kohn, 1987).” How does this play into the fragilities and faultlines of femininity? It bears importance when consider against the psychoanalytic backdrop of triangulation Lucy Holmes wrote about and witnessed in her clinical patients. That is the Mother-Father-Self psychic triangulation. And how this triangulation of not only mother-daughter, but the father-daughter affair, may influence infantile anxieties where the phallus becomes the counterphobic defense against the feared all-powerful mother in the development of female masculinities of “machisma” as well as other feminine peculiarities.
Anorexia and Bulimia
Little boys are given the ability to separate themselves psychically from their mothers’ deficiency by misidentifying with her. That is to say since little boys have a penis and so they identify with the father’s all-powerful penis. The traditional Freudian psychology places the mother as the “deficient Other” or the weak and powerless parental object. However, little girls don’t have this option and so they identify with this powerful maternal figure through her “milk” (breasts also theorized as the maternal penis). Helene Cixous claimed the mother is a metaphor. She also wrote the breast acts as a privileged topos of female expression: “a woman is never far from ‘mother’ . . . There is always within her at least a little of that good mother’s milk. She writes in white ink.” And so, we come to understand, “Mother writes in white ink; mother’s milk.” And so, “Voice: milk that could go on forever … Eternity: is voice mixed with milk (Walker, 1998, pp. 134–139).” We can make a comparison by saying, at least for the little boy, the penis is the privileged topos of masculine expression. In like vein, the little boy is never far from his ‘father.’ But to further theorize, for a little girl who finds her mother frustrating and humiliating towards her, the powerful milk association, identification, and incorporation of “mommy is now inside of me because I drank her milk” becomes the powerful abdication of the “Queen” through reverse digestion, the regurgitation of that frustrating milk through forced expulsion of food or the complete denial of it (food) as the psychic defensive needed to split the self from this hated body, yet incorporated, still humiliating and frustrating internalized object. If homosexuality is a compromised formation, then we could also say too, anorexia and bulimia may also be a form of creative compromised solution, albeit potentially lethal and dangerous. If we turn to Julia Kristeva, she views maternity as “the privileged realm of the subject’s ambiguous stance between the sensuous pre-Oedipal bonds of maternal attachment and the disciplined separation of Oedipal (or symbolic) detachment. The mother’s body is the lived terrain of this contradiction, serving as both source of a disruptive semiotic and as pre-condition for the productive symbolic. She reproduces the father’s symbolic order while simultaneously destroying it with her pre-symbolic links to the disruptive realm of (unrestrained) libidinal drives (Walker, 1998, pp. 145–146; Oliver, 1993, pp. 3).”
The influencing semiotics of language found in the maternal chora, a negative language spoken that marks the return of the symbolic order. “It is the site that constantly subverts the stability and coherence of the symbolic. It appears to be at odds with the paternal authority of the symbolic (Walker, 1998, pp. 115; Kristeva, 1985).” For Kristeva, the semiotics is linguistics tied to the body and expressed as a “bodily experience,” such that for the child this time period exists before the time of acquired spoken language (pre-Oedipal) and so, its subjective influences remain hidden in the unconscious. Here Michelle Boulous Walker reports feminist writers suggesting the maternal body as “the body as negativity” and “embodies an active form of madness.”“This madness erupts as laughter indicating aggressive negativity toward unity and law (Walker, 1998, pp. 115; Kristeva, 1985). The language of the body is experienced in very real negative and positive ways by the child. Thus, again, unwittingly sets up for us a scenario of the borderline patient (Silberschmidt, Lee, Zanarini, and Schulz, 2015). Thus, similar to how Chodorow interprets the masculine development of a child;
“In the normal developmental course of events, much hinges on how a boy relates to his father and turns into a man — the delicate negotiation of this transformation, of identification, of how to replace or join without bringing on retaliation, castration, or humiliation. All of these, in turn, depend partly on a father’s own sense of confident masculinity and selfhood (Chodorow, 2012, pp. 131).”
So too, can we surmise that “much hinges on how a daughter relates to her mother and thus develops into a woman. In a similar arrangement, the delicate negotiation of this transformation, of identification, of how to replace or join in without bringing on retaliation, castration, or humiliation. All of these, in turn, depend partly on the mother’s own sense of confident femininity and selfhood.”
In a similar vein, Weiland tells us all patients, in fact all people, are in some way engaged in an internal struggle with their objects, especially the mother. Although this struggle is unique to the person as it is hidden for some, open for others, it seems to underlie the human condition and, in this sense, constitutes a fundamental human problem where the solution to it is both an individual and cultural one (Weiland, 1996).
And as Carol Cohn informs us of the lethal cultural results when the social embodiment of the male imaginary (the phallus) is allowed to parade in unrestrained fashion with no prohibitions placed on the part of the superego what we witness is infantile destructiveness in an age of advancing, available to the highest bidder, technology.
Feminine Machisma and the Idealized Phallus and Fear of Pregnancy
I will briefly discuss these faultlines of femininity; feminine machisma, the idealized phallus, and fear of pregnancy. It has been theorized the father’s penis becomes the idealized symbolic imaginary for little girls and is “every girl’s solution” to navigating her loss of not being given a penis. Where I do not necessarily believe this to be a “faultline” per se, as one must consider one’s object choices placed in substitution for the lost phallus. For example, female love object choice in lesbian homosexuality and choosing a masculine gender identity, pursuing a career as a female military officer, or becoming a pilot as an idealized form of phallus substitution. Also, professional female athletes, female police officers, and female bodybuilders may utilize healthy avenues to satisfy their lost phallus and I often think of Serena Williams and her tennis racket as phallus. While others may develop unhealthy behaviors like becoming female gang members to prove their worth in criminalized organized crime groups, in demonstrations of physical violence of their possessed masculine strength, prowess, and power. We might inquire, “Are we all “hard-wired” and “cemented” to our object choices based on our genetics and cultural upbringings?” Consider reading the journal article written by David Berreby, “The Things That Divide Us.” We know from the psychoanalytics of identity formation, culture is a very strong influencing factor. In addition, some women have very real unconscious fears of maternity and may require several years of psychotherapy before becoming pregnant (Balsam, 2012; Jacobs, 2007). This is not necessarily a faultline, in my opinion, although it can pose a problem for women wishing to become pregnant. The choice of maternity is a personal and private one. In addition, our unconscious fantasies and defensive impulses in relation to our objects, we all have been informed by our parental influences both maternal and paternal, their marital arrangements, the quality of their marriage and treatment of one another, and cultural surroundings which all play a bearing on a child’s future identity.
These are just a few of the ways females deal with the unconscious impulse to control and subordinate the female flesh. I have not discussed excessive body manipulations and self-castration fantasies nor acts of excessive promiscuity and the most fatal of all unconscious drives, suicide.

In the study of human medicine, there are patients known and termed “resistant to treatment.” I believe a percentage of the population of people that make up the group known as Targeted Individuals may be patients diagnosed as “resistant to treatment.” The only way forced treatment can occur is if you become a ward of the state through incarceration, you have been committed by a psychiatrist and deemed unable to interpret reality or care for oneself because of a mental diagnosis. Or you have given over your body to experimental science to be experimented on for payment. The latter scenario is more a business arrangement than a forced condition by a state authority or medical doctors. We can certainly compare Janine Chasseguet-Smirgel’s chapter on Narcissism and Group Psychology to uncover and understand how the psychopathological thinking of one in a superior position of power (say a medical doctor or nurse) might disguise his/her true anal sadistic character thru professional occupation, and attempt to “cure” all human ills. The comparative illustration that Chasseguet-Smirgel supplies us with, in her book Creativity and Perversion, is in her analysis of a film “The Corpse Incinerator.” Amovie shown in Paris during the 1970s and one that was not shown for any considerable length of time. The story is of a criminal pervert necrophile, which although different from the those carrying out gang stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture, makes a perfect example to demonstrate the metempsychosis that in all things annihilation does not exist and that things simply “change form.” In the “changing of form,” we can illustrate the victim’s impending “loss of identity.”
To briefly summarize Chassegeut-Smirgel’s analysis of the storyline in the movie “The Corpse Incinerator” a pervert necrophile is a crematorium worker who perceives death as a beautiful thing. His philosophical logic is Death frees one from the soul (the body). The body is clearly likened to a “blemish” that the main character in the movie helps to get rid of. The main character himself will become the murderer of his wife and children because they have “impure blood” in them. Here is the thinking of the pervert carrying out acts of gang stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture against a population of labeled “schizophrenics” and/or the “mentally ill” who, by interpretation of the gang stalking narratives, may have been diagnosed as “resistant to treatment” and/or “cannot imagine anything better for themselves,” as one man over Quora.com expressed to me when I discussed my experiences with gang stalking and targeted electronic physical assault and psychotronic torture. He spoke to me as if I was an annoyance, a petty inconvenience he had to put up with. In the movie, the human body clearly becomes “a blemish” in society that must be expunged at all cost thru the incinerator at the crematorium. In a similar vein, the “imposed treatments” of targeted electronic physical assault and psychotronic torture are meant to annihilate and transform the victim. We can certainly connect this logic to my Quora “friend” who was incredibly helpful in disclosing his own psychopathological way of thinking to me. The main character of this movie imagines a huge collective crematorium where he will offer up his services to the German Nazi and he will end in believing he is the Dalai Lama.
We can, thru comparative religious study, compare the use of mysticism in ancient Egyptian religious worship and the creation of a capacitor attached to images of the Baghdad Battery on wall relief at Hathor and boxes inlaid with metal where they may have believed they had actually divined the power of Ra, the sun god, through a magical box. Thus, we see, and can interpret man’s “God Complex.” In the movie, we see the use of mysticism to magnify the power of the pervert to remove all “fecal character to transform excrement into gold and to transform digestion — which in the movie is combustion, just like incineration — into a marvelous alchemy freeing the soul from the body which is nothing more than refuse” (Chassegeut-Smirgel, 1984). Bela Grunberger (1959), and a contemporary psychoanalyst to Janine Chasseguet-Smirgel, wrote of the element of digestion in the anal sadistic universe as “digestion as a fragmentation of ingested food and its degradation into less and less differentiated elements, which progressively lose their former peculiarities, and forming finally a homogeneous mass, the fecal bolus” (Chassegeut-Smirgel, 1984).Those who have been electronically targeted have previewed the pervert’s anal-sadistic universe and it is one that can be described as an act, sustaining a fantasy where breaking down the barriers which separate individual from individual (doctor from patient, brother from sister, daughter from father, child from adult, the molecules in the body from each other) the fantasy destroys reality and creates an alternate one. An alternate reality where all differences are abolished. And here we have the pervert who does not respect the boundaries of another person’s being. As certain parts of the body remain private and secluded, off-limit boundaries that aren’t meant to be touched as the Constitutional Doctrines imply, the anal sadistic pervert breaches the imposed legal limits and violates the liberty and freedom of the individual (Minnesota State University, Constitutional Amendment Summary, 2021). And here, of course, of specific interest is the Fourth Amendment. The ambiguity in this principle astounds me and we can uncover journal articles that clearly provide examples the criminal act of rape has still been a perplexing “concept in crisis” as rape myths still proliferate our culture (Conaghan, 2019; Chiroro, Bohner, Viki & Jarvis, 2004). If we have, at this late date in the history of humanity, a “concept in crisis” regarding sexual assault because of these rape myths, then imagine what type of crisis we have in concepts advancing technologies in science such as cloning and neuroethical issues in brain initiatives. “In the name of advancement of the sciences,” other specific social groups and radical right-wing conservative liberals, who want to remain unregulated by government interference and totally free to do as they please. We have seen when and where medical authorities have violated the medical and ethical guidelines of certain people. Concerns have now shifted from cloning to neuroethical issues in the ethical research of brain initiatives. Some of the latest research developments are utilizing electromagnetic frequency on the brain as well as optic light sources to control animal emotions like fear, aggression, sadness, as well as clinical depression. These latest neurological research projects may certainly help treat feelings of emotional fear for terminally ill patients facing end-of-life decisions.
In recounting my experiences with targeted electronic physical assault and psychotronic torture, I have established a connection when recording my blood sugar and blood pressure readings to analyze dated events of targeted electronic physical assaults and psychotronic torture. When I am targeted electronically and psychotronically and forced into a stupor to sleep, and which happened again yesterday on 9/11, I observe through routine blood sugar checks an increase in my blood sugar readings. An increase of 40 to 50 points. I believe this is due because sleeping during the night I am less inclined to drink water and to have an additional period of sleep during the day as well, were there is reduced activity and the ability to drink water creates this same scenario for dehydration. The stress of the targeting has also has taken its toll on my blood pressure and anxiety levels. I am almost inclined to believe these targeted electronic assaults, as well as psychotronic torture, are meant as palliative hospital care because I refuse psyche treatment programs. Although when these electronically induced sedative sleeps occur, I directly witness a reduction in blood pressure and I attribute it to someone trying to treat my medical comorbidity from afar and as someone clandestinely trying to “treat disease.” Possibly an impostor who, hiding behind some veil of concealment, as in the movie “The Corpse Incinerator,” is carrying out a perverted fantasy as a competent employed citizen. I had previously stated in the study of human medicine there are patients known and diagnosed as “resistant to treatment.” I am certainly one of these psychiatric patients, and my father was a hospice patient. As a patient resistant to “treatment” I professed my right to choose my own forms of mind-altering substances and that included religious beliefs. As there exist many individuals who despise religion because they believe it “hampers progress,” not unlike the radical right conservative-liberal that believe government interference hampers progress. Taking someone’s belief in God away thru the use of mystical illusion rooted in physics is a violation of someone’s first amendment rights.
I want to be clear to note this phenomenon of targeted electronic assaults and psychotronic torture clearly hints toward purposes in palliative care in the area of hospice type arrangements. Sedating the terminally ill or making one believe they are “terminal” or experiencing psychotic hallucinations. This is a hint towards my father’s end-stage of life care and his personal experience with targeted electronic physical assaults as he conveyed them to me.
The one term alluded to, but never spoken of, by Michel Foucault in his book The History of Sexuality, according to Alenka Zupančič, is the term human unconscious. And how the human unconscious can influence a doctor’s imposed choice to medically treat certain vulnerable, disadvantaged, and marginalized groups because they are the “blemished” and make excellent research test subject fodder.

The article states, “If we can’t say what rape is, how can we struggle against it.” This very question is at the heart of the criminal activity called Gang Stalking, Targeted Electronic Physical Assault, and Psychotronic Torture. It becomes an ambiguous term that although covered broadly by federal laws, uncovering the identity of the perpetrators becomes a difficult and tedious task leaving many targeted people without resources abandoned, placed in a difficult position, and without help. After the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack on May 6, 2021, the identity of the perpetrators were only uncovered with extensive federal resources of the FBI, Department of Justice, and federal intelligence community.

On September 3rd I had a doctor’s appointment. A very important doctor’s appointment because I had stopped going to the doctor’s office visits and I had stopped taking my medications because of gang stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults. My blood pressure reading was high while I was in the office so my doctor refilled my medications and asked me to keep a log of my morning blood pressure readings as well as a blood sugar log. I have several chronic conditions. These are only two of them. I’m not going to share each day’s reading results but I will share with you the effects of electronic targeted physical assaults. See if you can notice a change? The entry log reads as follows:
Sept. 4, 2021

(I washed and showered)
Sept. 5, 2021

(I DID NOT wash and shower. I did not wash and shower until September 9th)
Did you notice something the change? If you take notice, the time changes as I was initially waking up early to bathe, monitor my blood pressure, and record my blood sugar. I stopped taking daily showers as well. This is how electronic targeted physical assaults affect me. And as a result, I have suffered a loss of identity because of it. Electronic targeted assaults make it virtually impossible for a person to exercise and properly care for themselves. As a result, I cannot stay as healthy as I possibly can by keeping my blood pressure as well as my blood sugar in check through routine exercise and simple physical movement because it psychotronically incapacitates me.
In addition, my electronic targeted assaults sedates me and makes me drowsy so I doze off to sleep making me less active. It has also caused me to become dehydrated from a lack of drinking water.Dehydration, in turn, can increases glucose and sodium in the bloodstream. My targeting is making it impossible for me to control my blood pressure as well as my blood sugar through physical exercise and simple routine movement. As a result, I have to depend on pharmaceuticals to do this for me. Drugs are big business. Some might even say Dark Business infiltrated with Dark Money.I mean who can benefit from my FSA and HSA spending dollars (welfare healthcare insurance stipend)? Obama/NJ Family Care State-Run Health Care?
Since the collapse of the modern industrial economy and the beginning of the post-industrial economy (the service economy) and following the events of the Great Recession in 2008/2009 America has become familiar with a narrative. It is a narrative in reports for Gang Stalking with Electronic Targeted as well as Electronic Targeted Physical Assaults and Psychotronic Torture. It is hard for an average Joe to understand whether these accounts are real or fake as many people blame the reports on “mentally ill”“deluded” individuals who are in need of “therapy.” And in some cases that may be the case. It is so easy to blame others via snap judgments without proper investigatory work and a clear understanding of the phenomenon. For example, it’s easy to blame social welfare recipients by claiming their “lazy” and “stupid.” Everything we encounter and observe isn’t as it presents itself to be all the time. Often there are entire stories to be told that remain hidden beneath the surface of superficiality. Some narrative reports definitely seem petty accusations not rooted in sound logic. For example, one person reported she was gang stalked while she was in a McDonald’s drive-thru line waiting to be served when some guy pulled right in front of her, cut her off, and prevented her from being the next person served. Clearly, it may also be the lack of linguistic skills in accurately detailing events of their history and a person’s ability to accurately understand and have knowledge of what the phenomenon actually consists of. Some people believe the government is covertly manipulating them in clandestine CIA “mind control” programs which there is no evidence to support government involvement. It in all likelihood is the result of organized criminal behavior and community stalking in behavior that demonstrates a certain pattern of conduct.
A loss of identity may be a welcomed event such as in divorce or a loss of a job one might despise. But a loss of identity can be painful and difficult as in when someone losses their legs in a catastrophic accident. The Gang Stalking narrative of victims in a research report that investigated individual accounts of victims who had been gang stalked definitely suggests this. Thru forced incurred losses, the victim losses their former identity to now become “a victim of gang stalking” and one suffering stolen identity. A person can be changed mentally when events take away persons, places, and things. This is how the natural course of aging and maturity happens. If you think about the loss of identity suffered by the aged, you can certainly understand William Shakespeare’s quote that begins “Life is but a stage…” If you think about the loss of identity suffered by violent crime we can look to Ariel Castro. Ariel Castro’s teenage victims clearly suffered a premature loss of identity as we can definitively say these teenagers went from high school students, someone’s dependent child cared for by a loving parent, and someone’s close classmate and friend to kidnapped victim, incarcerated in a house, chained to a bed and raped daily. Those events forever changed their identity. They would never go back to just being regular teenagers. They became women of rape at an early age. What caused Amanda Berry to flee Castro’s home? Amanda Berry decided to flee the house because she gave birth to a baby girl as a result of rape. When the child became the age of 5, she began to ask questions about Amanda’s shackles and chains. She was told by her mother they were just “bracelets.” Amanda’s daughter would also be denied the privilege of attending school for fear Amanda’s identity (now a kidnap victim who had been a missing child) would be found out.
If you connect the dots from the familiar scenes of kidnapping and the usurpation of freedoms Targeted Individuals suffer in everyday life, you can come to an understanding how this is human behavior following a course of conduct (supporting a victim narrative) that demonstrates a very similar pattern in semiotics and language; denial of rights. Albeit, a language that remains mostly silent and explicitly unspoken and hidden. Knowledge in reading silence and symbolism is required to understand this type of phenomenon. Furthermore, in the study of psychoanalysis, there are two fault lines that represent acts of extreme terrorism. We consider acts of extreme terrorism as those acts carried out by foreign nationals on American domestic soil and behavior demonstrating a certain pattern of conduct. But the same two fault lines appear in relatively minor acts of what could certainly be considered forms of domestic terrorism; gang stalking violence and mass random shootings. The first psychic fault line of masculinity involves gender and selfhood in relation to women and femininity. That is to say, not being a little girl. The second psychic fault line of masculinity involves being an adult man and not a little boy; unhumiliated. That is to say, not a little boy humiliated by a father or other adult male relative. This primarily has been statistically analyzed in patterns of male-to-male aggression as well as theorized by Freudian psychology to be primarily a male-to-male affair or the original father-to-son affair; humiliation that provokes male-to-male violence. However, this does not address the male-to-female affair and the paranoid-schizoid personality constellation of men who rape women nor does it address the female-to-female affair. We know from statistics that a small population of women commit violent acts. The work of Melanie Klein has primarily been concerned with this mother-to-son affair as well as the mother-to-daughter affair in regard to female masculinities and the violence against Other. A key feature of this psychic theatrical stage is an act of humiliation or perceived humiliation.
We can certainly go on to surmise this to be, at least one reason, in some cases regarding the phenomenon of gang stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. Some event experienced by the perpetrator of gang stalking was perceived as humiliating and that person will neither behumiliated bya male and made to feel like a “little boy” nor be made to feel feminine like a “little girl.”Of course, we see these same extreme acts of violence in the terrorism of gangland-style murders, but the psychic roots all converge on a similar patterned theme (course of conduct) that exposes the fragile fault lines of an ego. It has been called the Achilles Complex from the Illiad as Achilles is a junior man who, suffering a humiliating blow by a superior officer, is also driven by a thirst for glory. If you are interested in reading further about the theory of the Achilles Complex please click on the following link — The Fragilities and Fault Lines of Masculinity — Proclivities’ Principle Wisdom (wordpress.com).
I’m going to pose a question and this is purely theoretical and for the acquisition of knowledge on this topic. If you wanted to hurt a male, without killing him, how would you do it? If you wanted to hurt a female, without killing her, how would you do it? You would, no doubt have to know a little something about your intended victims like what’s important to them. What objects they hold dear and near and where their “treasures” lay. But not all treasures are comprised of gold and diamonds. This is definitely something to think about when analyzing cases of gang stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. Freedom to come and go as one pleases in their home environment is pretty important and I am also reminded of a poem by Sir Edward Dyer, “My Mind To Me A Kingdom Is.” It is possible to steal someone’s body as in the case of rape or sexual assault. But can someone still your mind? Your lifestyle? Your identity? Control of your body? Who you are at the very core? And if they can, what does this imply about the future of American democracy and the people living within its borders where freedoms are no longer protected by a person’s constitutional rights?
