Are You a Targeted Individual? Here’s What You Can Do.

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. 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 chastityAnd 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 NarcissismThat 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).

“God’s Jury” and the Modern Inquisitorial Process of Creating Modern Service Security Surveillance Systems with Right Wing Dark Money 

Edward Sorel’s illustration from the cover of “God’s Jury” by Cullen Murphy

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 Right Rally 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 psychoanalysisobject 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).

Unveiling the Fragilities and Faultlines of Femininity: A psychoanalytic investigation (Part II)

From “Individualizing Gender and Sexuality: Theory and Practice” by Nancy J. Chodorow (2012).

Updated: September 27, 2021; 5:27 PM

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).” ….

Additionally,

“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 attachmentavoidant 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 phallus and 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 someopen 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.

How Loss of Identity is Achieved through Combined Acts of Narcissism and Group (Gang-Related) Psychology: An analysis

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.” A movie 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.

How Gang Stalking with Electronic Targeted Assault Contributed to My Loss of Identity: One person’s private account

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

7:18 AM Blood Pressure Reading — — 7:21 AM Blood Sugar Reading — —

(I washed and showered)

Sept. 5, 2021

7:40 AM Blood Pressure Reading — — 7:43 AM Blood Sugar Reading — —

(I washed and showered)

Sept. 6, 2021 (Labor Day)

9:15 AM Blood Pressure Reading — — 9:18 AM Blood Sugar Reading — —

(I DID NOT wash and shower)

Sept. 7, 2021

9:53 AM Blood Pressure Reading — — 9:57 AM Blood Sugar Reading — —

(I DID NOT wash and shower)

Sept. 8, 2021

10:12 AM Blood Pressure Reading — — 10:16 AM Blood Sugar Reading — —

(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.

For me, in my personal narrative, the reason for my targeting has been a forced loss of identity. Where once I awoke early each morning to exercise and maintain a healthy weight, I have become morbidly obese through forced sedation, remotely and clandestinely delivered, by someone holding a handheld device or “God in a Box”. If you haven’t read an account of ancient man’s attempt attempts to develop ancient forms of technology and seduce onlookers with the magic of electricity utilizing the Baghdad Battery, please click on the following link —ANCIENT EGYPTIAN TECHNOLOGY: A Form of Egyptian Electricity, The Baghdad Battery, and A Visitation in the Night — Proclivities’ Principle Wisdom (wordpress.com).

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 be humiliated by a 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?

The Collapse of The Modern Industrial Economy, A Crisis of White Masculinity, The Post-Industrial Rise in Service Security Surveillance, the Transubstantiation of Formative Non-Virtue, and the Phenomenon of the Targeted Individual

Government Hints Fannie/Freddie Would Need Another Bailout If Conditions Deteriorate – March 19, 2015

After the election of Barrack Obama and the manifestation of racially coded rhetoric espoused by the Tea Party, an outbreak of articles and roundtable discussions arose concerning the decline of American men. This decline in (white) male masculinity seemed to suggest the deterioration of masculinity had reached a point where patriarchal privilege was finally over and where women appeared to be gaining fast in major social indicators (Salam 2009; Rosin 2010; Zincenko 2009; Ashbrook 2009; Pew Research Center 2010; Schmidt 2010). They noted this decline was not mild either. These commentators warned; it was a grand epochal change in power, as the patriarchal system that had benefited men for over one million years was in its final days. Then came such titles as the “Death of Macho” “The End of Men” “Male Decline in the 21st Century?” “The Rise of The Wives” and “Women Outpacing Men in Income, Education” have populated the media since 2009.

The main culprit in the perceived decline of men is the collapse of a modern, industrialized economy that supported and held up male advantage. Indeed, the perceived decline in any human being can be attributed to the collapse of supportive avenues toward individual successful outcomes, and here I am referring to the decline in a population electronically targeted by the development and need for a post-industrial service security surveillance economy and the rise of the Targeted Individual. The forces of globalization and technological innovation have reconfigured the economy in a global context where information and communication are some of the main drivers of economic success. The rise of a post-industrial service economy values skills in communication, listening, as well as knowledge in other modes of surveillance, and teamwork. Ironically, all skills are associated with women. The postindustrial economy’s reliance on technology and relatively transparent information flows and displaces the need for physical strength and risk (Rosin 2010). Manufacturing is now largely located in developing nations, leaving American working-class men in particular without employment or purpose.

The psychoanalytic logic and crime research statistics regarding homicide support “Women are always and everywhere less likely than men to commit criminal acts.” As “…. homicide research remains largely male-centric, with patterns unique to female offenders and victims often lost in the aggregate. Although males constitute the overwhelming majority of both homicide offenders and victims, it is important nonetheless to identify gender differences and similarities in trends and patterns of homicide.” And this is true not only of homicide but also in terms of individualizing gender differences in patterns and trends of human behavior.

An article from the journal of Violence and Gender states, “For women to kill, they generally must see their situation as life-threatening, as affecting the physical or emotional well-being of themselves or their children.” Overall, it is often noted that males and females tend to see the utility of violence in radically different ways. Whereas men tend to employ violence as an offensive move to establish superiority, women typically view violence as a defense of last resort. And, “Unless the murders of women are examined separately from the murders of men, that is, disaggregated by gender, little can be known about this type of murder which is otherwise lost within the larger number of male–to-male homicides.”

It is my personal opinion that when it comes to aggressive violence perpetrated by females it’s primarily passive-aggressive in nature, the kind of which may violate boundaries but not necessarily kill instantaneously. It is for this reason the utility in the type of service provided by security service surveillance mimics the passive-aggressive boundary violations often associated with the female gender. Since women are caregivers, they are the guardians for the well-being of their husbands and children and may already be well versed in establishing felt security. Here, the term security becomes the issue. How secure do the proponents of service security surveillance already feel in their own masculinity or femininity? Women are already groomed for second-class status, it is this very status that supports their necessity to, not only utilize the best modes of behavior but find the best avenues that will foster their success. Sometimes the best avenues are antisocial ones which including clandestine surveillance and even sometimes murder. It is for this reason women make excellent female intelligence operatives. Where men have a tendency to utilize brute force as part of their established sexuality, women look for subtle angles and avenues that don’t require physical violence. This tendency to be more “passive-aggressive” in the boundary violations and violence they employ is even demonstrated in the weapons of choice when women commit acts of murder. When it comes to women killers, they tend to murder by smothering, drowning, suffocating, poisoning, or strangling their victims. These are clearly less messy alternatives than the brute force of masculine bloodletting.

The Great Recession has only exacerbated a trend in, not only a crisis of white masculinity, but it may be affecting a small population of females as well. Since 80% of the jobs lost in 2008 had been men, this has left some commentators to opine that the country is in a “he-cession” or “man-cession” (Salam 2009) alluding to a dramatic crisis of white masculinity. The financial industry, construction, and heavy manufacturing were all hit the hardest during the Great Recession leaving their female counterparts additionally stressed.

Is it any wonder then, we see the transubstantiation of male formative non-virtue as the phenomenon of the Targeted Individual rose and continues to effect a small population of American citizens? The phenomenon is now one of the biggest threats to the liberty and the freedom of free-thinking men and women in American democracy.

It is here we can make the connection I had mentioned earlier regarding the telemarketing polls conducted into Tea Party members during the Obama administration, 40% of whom were women, and their demographic comprising mostly white, older, middle-class males living in rural areas (and their wives no doubt), and the connection to an early historical crisis in white masculinity regarding the closing of the Western frontier and the rise of bureaucratic control over business. Mens’ need to conquer and control territory, preferably unrestrained control, has never changed. It has only shifted over the course of time from one area to another. The conquering territory, and not the physical landscape of the Western frontier where bravery, physical strength, bravado, and the willingness to take risks to new forms of wildlife, has now become the landscape of service market economies in the post-industrial American economy where men can openly face the fierce new opportunities in an unpredictable market. This idea is nothing new in academic thinking. However, what is new is the global need for an expanded service security surveillance economy and one that includes the makeup of electronic targeting. The male dominant need to control and conquer, not only new territories and new expanding markets, but the existing and exploding territories of human bodies, that vast majority that makeup overpopulations of human beings and their need for, not only service security surveillance, but service security medical surveillance in attempts to thwart the death instinct, develop new advancing medical technologies, and “save lives.”

Thus, the transubstantiation of formative non-virtue into an unregulated market territory where the far-right radical, conservative republican can enjoy his libertarian philosophies and with the unbounded freedoms of deployment of technology rooted in boundary violations of Other are a very real and existing phenomenon (as we now enter the era of directed energy weapons). Even at the turn of every corner in the invisibility of electromagnetic frequency and microwaves. I would truly love to know what the philosopher Michel Foucault would have thought of today’s post-industrial, service security surveillance phenomena!

I use the term “transubstantiation of formative non-virtue”, a play on words from one of my favorite authors and from one of the most informative books ever written on religious Christian philosophy, Dante’s Purgatorio. In Canto XXV of Dante’s Purgatorio, Dante then describes to the best of his 12th-century knowledge, a very interesting idea on how the shades (spirits) materialize upon death. It has to do with an idea of Informative Virtues, a philosophical idea that the regenerative powers of the seed create similar life. As in, like begets like. An example Dante used in this Canto was a sea-fungus, when it undertakes the reorganization process of meiosis, the seed takes on the virtue from the progenitor’s heart. Upon death, the soul takes on an aerial body and will stand either on the River Archeron (to await Hell) or stand on the River Tiber (to await salvation). Thus, upon death, all souls according to their hearts are either damned or saved. The allegory used here recalls Luke 6:43–45 where Jesus taught that good trees produce good fruits and likewise, bad trees will produce bad fruits (logic). Thus, the act of human breeding (progenitors-to-offspring) scientifically explains how human reproduction works in the vaginal vase of the women’s womb where “good seed” (ova/female sexual intellect) and “good seed” (sperm/male sexual intellect) produce further “good seed” (the fetus/”birthing new advanced future technologies”/brainchild). (Logic) Fashioning another explanation after the proverb found in the New Testament, The Parable of The Mustard Seed, when Jesus was asked the question, “What is the Kingdom of God Like? To what can I compare it?” To which Jesus replied, “The Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed (good seed) a gardener planted in his garden and a great tree grew (good seed of future offspring). It grew so big that all the birds and the fowl of the air could come and take refuge in it.” In Bible study, the comparison of this verse is made with the sudden, secret growth, an immense development, as “good seed” (logic).

Except this big tree is the new digital global panopticon and the development of directed energy weapons, the biggest threats to freedom in the creation of service security surveillance sector that will support market economies and secure our national borders from threats of “terrorism” following 9/11. Then Republican president, George Bush, turned every U.S. citizen into a foreign national giving the unbounded freedom and right to the authority of the NSA, CIA, and other U.S. government agencies to surveil in the name of national security. The question becomes, “Who will this great tree serve?” And will there be clandestine secret foreign agents flocking to this “big tree” to target U.S. citizens? Where is the human logic, or even human need to torture?

This transubstantiation of formative non-virtue seems to have exponentially multiplied during and after the presidential Obama administration and the Great Recession of 2008. For it was the economic harbinger that forced the rise of a post-industrial need to service an economy, by the way crippled, an economy that is supportive to the needs of a paranoid bunch of Republican libertarians and experts hell-bent on violating the liberties and freedoms of U.S. American citizens are rooted in community policing. A service security surveillance economy that values skills in communication, listening, intelligent gathering among other modes of surveillance, and teamwork. Another connection made to the patterns and trends of individualizing sexuality and gender is the passive-aggressive violence that the service security surveillance economy represents. Its need for a different set of skills. The skills required for electronic targeted assault and unbounded boundary violations represent a similar method to passive-aggressive “feminine masculinities” demonstrated in female human communications; clandestinely subverted, creating feelings of felt security. These skills are strongly associated with women, listening and establishing felt security, and the need for coercive control over their children. They are the passive-aggressive tones needed to mother effectively but are also connected to the high functioning male psychopath. The difference between female masculinities and high functioning male psychopaths is in their reasoning employed behind their need for control. Men tend toward conquering, controlling, and dominating, even coercively, in order to exert and establish manhood and dominance, especially when it comes to the female maternal form. Women’s utility for coercive control tends towards the preservation of life and continued well-being.

The Great Recession of 2008, and Barrack Obama’s two terms in office, gave rise to one of the worst Republic presidents America has ever seen! And is it any wonder that a white belligerent, far-right radical, conservative-libertarian Republican president was elected in the aftermath of “witchdoctor Barrack Obama” Tea Party era and Tea Party leadership that explicitly used racial coded rhetoric and the use of derogatory signs with the word “nigger” printed on them. Or when Dale Robertson, leader of the Tea Party group called “1776,” endorsed Pastor John Weaver, former chaplain of the Sons of the Confederate Veterans, who espoused ideologies at the Christian Identity, a movement that believes Jews are a satanic force and people of color are not fully human (Burghart & Zeskind 2010). It is my opinion that whoever is behind the phenomenon of the electronic targeted tortured individual shares the same type of ideologies Pastor John Weaver shared with the Christian Identity. These proponents are cut from the same corrupt fabric of white supremacist Nazis who believe that the South will one day rise again and that people of color are not hardworking. This certainly explains the phenomenon that occurred when a group of rabble-rousers ascended the Capitol steps to create what has become known as the Capitol Insurrection on January 6, 2021. It’s important to consider the threat to homosexuals, the threat to the mentally ill, the threat to those living with lowered social status due to disabilities, individuals living on welfare who are perceived by these certain types as “inferior” and “lazy.” These are the same types of ideologies that extend out of the far-right, radical, conservative, libertarian, Republican rhetoric. I suddenly feel unsafe knowing they walk among us.

Social Myths and Perspecticide: How they work together

Illustration by Tracy J. Lee.

In the September 2021 issue of National Geographic Magazine “Mysteries of the Solar System,” on page 7 you’ll find a section entitled PROOF, “Collars of Conviction.” It is a seven-page section dedicated to the collars of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Embroidered on one of the famous collars she wore is a quote from Ginsburg’s husband, “It’s not sacrifice, it’s family.” Symbolically sewn with four layers of nicely sewn fabric, it is imbued with personal meaning. Each layer represents a member of her immediate family (Natasha Daly; 2021).

One of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s famous collars.

Ginsburg became professionally involved in gender equality in 1970 and began defending women’s rights. Her identity reflects that of woman, wife, mother, Jewish daughter of immigrants, second woman on the high court, not only balancing out the perspectives of the Supreme Court but an icon for all women balancing out so many different roles women have become accustomed to struggling with.

Yet my brother-in-law seems to think Ruth Bader Ginsburg by riding out her career on the Supreme Court, in the face of unbeatable cancer, somehow “screwed us all.” In his opinion, she “screwed us” because she refused to step down in the face of an unbeatable obstacle and instead choose to continue her duties as Supreme Court justice thereby allowing Donald Trump the right to choose her next replacement. I guess she should of just “sulked away like the wounded gal she was and just have given up.” But Ruth Bader Ginsburg would have never given up her post so easily. Yet, my brother-in-law insists that by not withdrawing Ginsburg allowed Donald Trump, and thereby the Republican party, further leverage on the Supreme Court with his replacement of Amy Coney Barrett. In my opinion, my brother-in-law’s belief is what is known as a social myth. The core of this social myth places at the center a female object for which we are to blame for male patriarchy’s Senate Republican majority action.

I like to contrast the sexual difference against the backdrop of racial difference. On the page opposite the story of “Collars of Conviction” resides “The Story of Human Difference” which asks the question, “If race is a social construct, not a biological trait, why do so many people still doubt it?” To provide a little background example, during the mid 1800s, I would say around the 1850s, a doctor by the name of Dr. Marion Simms practiced gynecology and obstetrics. He has been called the father of modern gynecological/obstetric medicine. Dr. Simms research employed the use of black female slaves as test subjects. Dr. Marion Simms believed in the social myth, “Black people have a higher tolerance for pain.” It is for this reason, Dr. Marion Simms performed experimental surgery on black female slaves without the use of any anesthesia or pain medication (Perper & Cina, 2010).

A 2016 research study conducted by the University of Virginia found that half of 200 medical students, who were used in their study, held at least one belief about “biological difference between blacks and whites, many of which are false and fantastical in nature.” They included myths like black people have higher tolerances for pain and their skin is thicker than whites due to biological (genetic) differences (Samarrai, 2016; Saini, 2021). These beliefs, of course, are myths. Just like the myth “Ruth Bader Ginsburg screwed us all.”

The myth that “Ruth Bader Ginsburg screwed us” due to her refused to step down from the bench while Barrack Obama was in office, thereby “giving Obama a better chance at choosing a more suitable replaced” is a myth because Ruth Bader Ginsburg was in her full-right to decide not to step down, and furthermore, even if she did step down, that was no guarantee the Republican-controlled Senate would have allowed Obama to replace her when they placed a refusal on Merrick Garland. Her decision not to step down is a given right extended to all Supreme Court justices if they so choose to remain active and forgo retirement. In my opinion, my brother-in-law’s misguided belief represents unconscious wishes towards strong women who have been endowed with the privilege to make their own forthright decisions. His opinion is nothing more than a myth, not founded in Truth but rather eclipsing Truth by attempting to gather support from unsuspecting non-thinkers who might choose to agree with his unfounded beliefs without perusal of the facts.

In addition, our Republican leaders, at the time, dismissed Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s wish that a new justice not be appointed until a new president was installed. Instead, there was a mad rush to install a new justice, by the then existing presidential administration of Donald Trump. And in the face of the unprecedented refusal of the Senate majority to consider the nomination of Merrick Garland by then-president Barack Obama, a Democrat, for 293 days (the longest day by far) is a clear and present statement made by male Republican majority leaders. Barrack Obama’s nomination expired on January 3, 2017, at the end of the 114th Congress and eventually, then President Donald Trump, a Republican, nominated and appointed Neil Gorsuch. One of the most unjustified miscarriages of leadership ever witnessed thus far by those in Washington, D.C. This was clearly an attempt to keep the Supreme Court predominately ruled and powered by Republican political nominees. However, nominations and elections of the Supreme Court, district, circuit, D.C. circuit, and Supreme Court, just about balance out (Elving, 2018; Drum, 2020).

Myths Still Linger

No matter how hard we may try, social myths still linger and continue to pervade social thinking. Myths like, “If a woman walks into a bar alone, she deserves to be raped.” Or other myths like, “If people want to practice stupidity they deserved to get beaten.” Myths like, “Black people have high pain tolerances because they are genetically different than whites” and “certain ethnic groups are more susceptible to COVID-19 because of biological and genetic differences that make them more prone to the infection.” In one of the world’s leading medical journals, the Lancet, in May 2020, insisted that “genetic make-up could be a possible factor in varying COVID-19 outcomes seen among ethnic groups at the time.” This strain of thinking has endured across the centuries and, when in 1793 a yellow fever outbreak occurred in Philadelphia, it was believed by white physicians that black people were immune to the yellow fever infection (Saini, 2021).

Social Myths in Action and How They Function

Myths attempt to downplay the actions taken by those guilty of prejudicial beliefs. Myths attempt to validate false beliefs that exonerate the guilty parties and vilify the innocent. Hence, “it was Ruth Bader Ginsburg that screwed us all” and not the Republican Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell. Myths attempt to focus on aspects of the innocent. For example, the fact a girl was drinking, or the refusal of Ruth Bader Ginsberg to step down while terminally ill with cancer, or that blacks are resistant to or more susceptible to certain types of infection without any scientific proof. The social myth then vilifies the innocent by focusing on the one “bad action” taken by the victim. The victim walked alone. The victim was drinking alcohol and got drunk. The victim refused to step down. The victim was a black man walking in the shadows. The victim was a prostitute. These statements are all forms of attempts at perspecticide and awareness campaigns need to be created to ensure those who are guilty are not exonerated by false social myths surrounding prejudice. Hence, the statement said about a high school boy, guilty as a member of gang raping an unconscious girl, at a party, “He is a good boy. He could have never committed rape. The girl shouldn’t have been drinking so much” (Kosloski, Diamond-Welch, and Mann; 2018). We need to have conversations about social myths and the role they play in forms of percpecticides, that is the usurpation of free-thinking, and attempts at coercively controlling others by implanting false social beliefs. When this is done, perpetrators unwittingly usurp power away from the innocent and place that power in the hands of the guilty, thereby exonerating the perpetrators of any and all wrongdoing. “She’s “crazy,” and so, the line of logical thinking goes she deserves to be beaten, raped, murdered, or whatever the case may be.

Research has indicated the impact of social myths on victims and how perspecticide negatively effects free-thinking by implanting not only false beliefs about women, but different ethnic groups, and those with difference in sexual orientation, those marginalized by the higher social order, have implied that coercive control, like sexual coercion, can negatively effect performance and mental health (Stermac, Bance, Cripps, Horowits, 2018; Stark, 2007) and effect the discourse and action taken against those in possession of difference.

The Phony Door Man and Men Mad to Be Normal

A Door Man at 1049 Park Ave., Upper East Side, Manhattan, New York City

“Those fingers in my hair, that sly come-hither stare, strips my conscious bare, its witchcraft.” ~Frank Sinatra, “Witchcraft”

At one of the local retail store establishments, Giant Liquors, we have what my brother-in-law calls, “The Phony Door Man.” In this social game, a black man pretending to be an authentic doorman employed by the retail establishment attempts to sell kindness (acts of charity) for spare change to patrons of the retail establishment. Upon arriving at the front of the retail establishment, you are greeted with a very cordial greeting. “Hello. How are you? You are looking very well today.” Upon exiting the store, the doorman leaves you with a very cordial, “Have a blessed day!” But quickly inquires of you if you have any spare change or cash you can give him. In the phenomenology of spirit, this man is like the angelical preacher who sells the comfort of heaven through his weekly sermons to a dispirited congregation desperate for hope. While accepting the congregations’ payments, the angelical preacher builds establish trust with his kind words. Unlike The Phoney Door Man, however, the Angelical preacher goes on to build himself a palatial estate. One that looks remarkably like something one would find in Heaven. Since this retail store establishment is a liquor store, it must be that all the “drunks” are truly deluded and rich with cash they would most likely be prodded into giving cash.

What is this phenomenology of spirit? Is it authentically genuine? I don’t believe so because on the back-side of this social game is an expected pay-out/charge in “completing the sale.” Acts of kindness and acts of charity are supposed to be made in the spirit of Love, giving without the want for anything in return, thereby turning the act of selflessness and Love into a payable job. People sometimes presented themselves, at times, to be like this “Phony Door Man.” I’ll tell you why in a minute. In the psychic life of power, to be dominated by an external force is the shape power and control take. What forms the psychic life of power? The master, who at first appears to be “external” to the slave, reemerges as the slave’s own conscience. We are used to thinking of power as what presses on the subject from the outside, as what subordinates, sets underneath, and relegates to a lower order. The Phony Door Man, in performing an act of kindness and establishing trust, plays on the conscious awareness of his targeted population. Tugging at the heartstrings of unsuspecting customers he hopes to generate sympathy and win sales.

“You got to pick up every stitch, you got to pick up every stitch, you got to pick up every stitch. Mmmm, must be the season of the witch. Must be the season of the witch, yeah. Must be the season of the witch.” ~Donovan Leitch, “Season of the Witch”

In the phenomenology of spirit, taking kindness and acts of charity and regulating them to the lowly positions of “business” is a perversion. Transforming an act of kindness or act of Love into a cash transaction; a paid-for service, not asked for but provided anyway, is a seduction. Can we sell kindness for cash? Well, it is an awful lot like selling genuine authentic Heaven in a pre-paid package like Joel Osteen. The Roman Catholic Church once practiced this form of prostitution in what was known as “the selling of indulgences.” Johann Tetzel, a German Dominican friar and preacher, was one such fellow who happened to be appointed Inquisitor for Poland and Saxony. In his lifetime, history would record man’s experience with the absolute outer limits of religious authority in what became known as the Inquisitions and Law Codes dedicated to eradicating Satan possessed women also called the “Witch Trials”; The Malleus Maleficarum (1486). And these ruling ecclesiastical authorities were absolutely free to liberate the elite ruling monarchs of any excess heavy cash baggage through what became known as “the selling of indulgences.” An indulgence is “a way to reduce the amount of punishment one has to undergo for sins”, thereby eluding certain terraces of Purgatory or Hell. The Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church describes an indulgence as “a remission before God of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven, which the faithful Christian who is duly disposed gains under certain prescribed conditions through the action of the Church which, as the minister of redemption, dispenses and applies with authority the treasury of the satisfactions of Christ and all of the saints.” It was a favor extended by a member vested with God-given authority of the church and there was a hefty treasury of a price attached to such forgiveness.

Should we be selling forgiveness, or kindness for that matter, and how do we determine its values? Can we sell true Love? And who would purchase it insatiably? Should we be selling a Heavenly Hope like Joel Osteen? Or should we be selling a hardcore dose of reality? Should we be selling the illusion of an everlasting eternity in Heaven with God the Father, the only one who “truly Loves us”? Or the reality men most fear, that one day we will most certainly die and fade into oblivion? Who sells illusions anyway? High-paid female escorts with a personal stairway to a second-floor hotel room? Well-versed Angelical ministers whose promise only goes as far as the words he speaks? Inquisitors for Poland and Saxony with the vested heavenly authority to reduce God’s punishments in the “afterlife”? Who are the real charlatans here? When I think of Angelical preachers selling the illusion of hope, I think of Joel Osteen. By the way, have you seen Joel Osteen’s estate and what it’s valued worth? Wow! It was once said if you want to become rich invent a religion and then L. Ron Hubbard, a science fiction writer, birthed The Church of Scientology.

Selling the illusion of an afterlife is a perversion. It’s a perversion because the behavior is an act of incorporation of Truth that prevents the process of introjection and the process of mourning one’s life. Incorporation replaces introjection with the artificial, the veiled, and the hidden, with deception, a fantasy. It is a seduction. It’s a lie told by a fork-tongued snake. It would be like a Jurassic snake swallowing the suckling ego of a child, and swallowing it up whole, then regurgitating it as a masculine artificial creation; veiled, armed, synthetic, all artifice, seduction, and defense, a femininity created from the warped and twisted mind of the masculinity. Thus, the narcissistic personality. In religion’s case, the Truth that is hidden and concealed within a fantasy is the knowledge “I will not die.” It is then replaced with the fantasy of “I will live on forever in Heaven with God the Father.” (with the one caveat, of course, as long as you do God’s will. People sacrifice their whole lives in dedication to this hope of never dying but living on for eternity.)

Why are some people like this Phony Door Man? It is because some people perform acts of kindness and charity, not out of the Love from their own heart, but with the expected pay-out/charge of “You OWE ME!” This represents the incorporation myth of Zeus who, swallowing his pregnant wife Metis, births forth his own offspring, void of a vagina, a fully-developed child, from his own womb/head. The brainchild. Zeus not only achieves the appropriation of the female reproductive capacity together with the “wisdom” of Metis, his wife but also effectively swallows and obliterates the mother-daughter relationship. This mother-daughter relationship, in my opinion, is represented as the nurturing acts of kindness in acts of Love we give each other, not with the intention of a pay-off, but because we genuinely know how to Love. This represents, of course, the Mother Love of hippy influence.

“Normal man has killed fifty million of his fellow normal men in just the half past century.” ~from the movie “Mad to Be Normal”

Since I started to study psychoanalysis, I started looking at things not as they are, but what they represent in terms of philosophy and psychoanalytic truths. I had recalled a time when my twin sister and I were young girls. I would say anywhere between the ages of 8 and 10 years old. We would pretend to be pregnant and stick pillows under our shirts. Our cousin April had become pregnant. She would be our first female pregnant body experience. My twin sister, while mimicking being pregnant, forcefully expelled her pregnancy by punching the pillow out of her shirt with her fist. She turned to me and wanted me to do the same. Instead of mimicking her forceful abortion, I shielded the imaginary baby and protected it from danger/destruction. Some might say that my sister’s imaginary fetus might have mimicked an unconscious wish towards me, as we both shared gestational time in utero, it might be pondered that perhaps it represents an unconscious wish rooted in sibling rivalry. However, after carefully studying psychoanalysis it most likely represents a rejection of motherhood, an aversion to maternity, with the possibility of some latent unconscious wishes to “kill me off.” My sister can possess a rather sadistic personality at times. I say this because when we were little, during role-play of Student-Teacher, she liked to discipline me with a ruler by spanking and slapping my hands with the ruler. This was practice performed at our Roman Catholic grammar school we both attended in the 1970s. Where do these Medieval institutions like Roman Catholic Inquisitions get their beginnings? Some would say the practice of psychiatry mimics medieval inquisitions.

In literary analysis of the movie “Mad To Be Normal” in comparison with the phenomenon of gang stalking, electronic targeted assaults, and psychotronic torture and with the development of direct energy weapons (DEW), and the song by Donovan Leitch, “The Season of the Witch,” it was Donovan Leitch who had told Mojo magazine regarding the song in June of 2011, that at the time (1966) “You get a feeling that not everything is perfect in the Garden of Eden…Dealers were moving into bohemia and hard drugs were on the fringes.” In my opinion, it’s a song about the delusions of Satan. “The beatnik” trying to make it rich and “two rabbits” running into a ditch. Who are the real threats to the social order? You get this feeling that the mentally ill, the beatnik, and the hippies are “the witch” and those are the ones that threaten the social order, not the military establishment or the new advancing technological war machines that leave their repercussions behind in our streets and troubled homes following a war. Soldiers who return home broken from the shock and trauma, and to deal with this “season of the witch,” which represent our fears, we invent new and advancing electromagnetic weapons, technologies, and drugs to further obliterate the objects we fear which are rooted in our delusions of evil and what evil represents. Instead replacing Love with Fear and the idea of a perfect illusion of one’s very own Garden of Eden free from gays, lesbians, Muslims, transgender, hippies, beatniks, drug addicts, black people, prostitutes, the mentally ill, any other type of “witch” you might dream up.

Note: The author of this paper believes the phenomenon of gang stalking, with electronic physical assaults, and psychotronic torture is part of experimental and special interest technologies that utilize low-income, marginalized populations within American society for the advancement of neurological brain initiatives and the electronic grooming of individuals.

How the Incorporation Myth in Greek Mythology Helps to Explain Gang Stalking, Electronic Targeted Assaults, and Psychotronic Torture

Athena springs full forth from the head of Zeus

Definition

Incorporation — 1) To unite (one thing) with something else already in existence: incorporated the letter into her diary. 2) To admit as a member to a corporation or similar organization. 3) To cause to merge or combine together into a united whole. 4) To cause to form into a legal corporation: incorporate a business. 4) To give substance or material form to; embody. V.intr.: 1) To become united or combined into an organized body. 2) To become or form a legal corporation: San Antonio was incorporated as a city in 1837. 3) Linguistics. To move from the head of one phrase to the head of another, forming a new word by affixing onto that head, as in certain languages when a noun object of a verb is affixed to the verb. Adj.

The present-day atmosphere of the American culture demonstrates the ill-effect of American democracy’s roots in systematic institutionalized slavery. Not only was institutionalized slavery supported by our founding forefathers, but this same type of business politics was employed by the Germans following the defeat of Germany in World War I, which thereby gave rise to the Nazi German Holocaust. Genocides are no stranger to the archive of human history.

Other acts of foreclosure observed in the psychic incorporation function of marginalized groups was the historic oppression of women by male patriarchy. It was also witnessed in the killing of “witches” during the late 1600s. We witness the psychic defense function of incorporation when we hear of attempts of behavioral modification in the “teaching” or “training” practices of lesbians and gays through techniques of “brainwashing.” Attempts to ward off the image, lifestyle, behavioral tendency of those groups who have been foreclosed upon in individuals suffering problems with whole object relations. Problems with object relations can be explained by the warding off of whole attributes of an object in someone with object relations in external reality. To illustrate, in a process of psychic splitting against a female prostitute, she is not seen as a female with hopes and dreams, with a mother and father, brothers and sisters, hopes and joys, with friends and loved ones by a perpetrator. Instead, she becomes one attribute of her identity; a whore. To illustrate further, in the psychic incorporation function of marginalized groups, these “whores” will be “consumed whole” by their perpetrators and a new reality put in place. Sometimes this reality that is birthed out of the perpetrator’s anal-sadistic fantasies does not allow the right of the prostitute to live a life. The prostitute will be raped and murdered, her body discarded in a watery grave or buried, hidden beneath the earth. The incorporation has taken place, the new reality is a reality free of the “social blemish.”

Today, similar to the behavioral modification of homosexuals we sometimes observe in some religious phanatic groups utilizing brainwashing, is a type of ill-produced behavioral modification techniques in people suffering the phenomenon known as the Targeted Individual (TIs). It is the desire of those in possession of a biopower to “swallow whole” the identities of the targeted population and “give birth to a new reality,” one that may be rooted in the creative perversions of the perpetrator’s anal-sadistic universe. This new reality springs forth a new reality from the intellect of the dominant power. Thereby creating an alternate new reality that is a perverse solution (a perversion) rooted in the perpetrator’s anal-sadistic universe.

How do we explain this historical abuse?

This phenomenon eerily points to the indexical sign of incorporation as the means by which what is desired, envied, or feared is appropriated and taken to be one’s own. The psychopathological defense function of incorporation has a myth that is used to better understand its reason, causes, and purpose, like Freud’s Oedipus, in Greek mythology. The myth is known as the incorporation of Metis by Zeus. This myth, similar to Freud’s Oedipus, helps us to understand psychopathology. And it goes like this, Zeus swallows whole the pregnant body of his wife Metis. Then, Zeus and Metis’ fully formed fetus springs forth from the head of Zeus. To understand this myth, we analyze the narrative content of what is happening. I have stated one of the things that are happening is Incorporation. Incorporation of the mother and her subsequent disappearance/destruction form the process by which Zeus establishes his power. With the incorporation/swallowing/consuming of the pregnant mother. Zeus not only achieves the appropriation of the female reproductive capacity together with the “wisdom” of Metis, his wife but also effectively swallows and obliterates the mother-daughter relationship. Here, if we delve further, we uncover that Zeus himself possesses anxieties regarding his own mother. But how can that be? Zeus is the ultimate creator. He doesn’t have a mother and thereby debunks the entire system of an omnipotent fatherly diety and religion itself (Jacobs, 2007).

To further analyze, since the mother-daughter relationship has been destroyed with the disappearance/destruction of Metis, the fact that she has been swallowed whole into the belly of Zeus expresses Zeus now has infantilized Metis. Metis has now taken on the position of the fetus inside the male womb/brain. The appropriation gestation achieves the fusion of the mother into the daughter with the final product being Athena. Through his incorporation of Metis, Athena is born the motherless daughter, who will never become a mother herself but will remain a virgin daughter forever: an asexual, aggressive virgin, veiled, armed, synthetic, all artifice, seduction, and defense, a femininity created from the mind of Father Zeus (Jacobs, 2007). We can certainly come to understand how this explains some creative perversion of lesbian/transgender sexual/gender roles. But lesbians, nor do transgender people, do not normally pose a threat to the larger social order we live in. However, in the minds of some, unconscious fears surround gay and lesbian sexual orientations and these individuals are cast as phantoms, spirits, ghosts that frighten and threaten to annihilate us.

The myth of Zeus’ parturition functions to foreclose the question of the scar of the navel (belly button), the one indelible mark of the connection to and disconnection from the original maternal body. Athena becomes the precious proof that the father is the prime author of identity. She will represent this grandiose logic/phantasy and devote her work to endorsing and institutionalizing it as law in her court of justice, as dramatized in the Oresteia. Unaware of the story of her own mother, Athena will condemn Clytemnestra and declare that the mother will not be mourned. The murdered mother will signify no loss, and Athena’s culture will collectively deny that there has been any loss at all. It will become a buried loss that cannot be mourned, experienced, or represented. The name of Metis is shrouded in silence along with the eradication of the navel as a symbolic mark of the generative link between offspring and mother. Eradication of Metis via the incorporation defensive function sustains the parthenogenetic phantasy on which Zeus’ order is based. Athena, as Zeus’ perfect abstraction, represents the radical divorce of the patriarchal social symbolic order from its roots to the flesh of the maternal body and the violence committed against the mother. Metis the Titaness is ransacked, raped, pillaged, and eaten. She will then be eradicated from representation in the moment that Zeus’ order of democratic justice is established through his perfect creation: Athena and her court of law (Jacobs, 2007).

To demonstrate the significance of Zeus’ incorporation for the sake of argument, let’s reiterate Levi-Strauss’ point that in order to understand one myth one needs to explore its relationship to other myths. The Metis myth is matricidal. It inextricably relates to the Oresteia yet is only visible in the latter through the figure of Zeus’ perfect abstract creation, The Court of Law of Athena. Athena’s motherless status functions to secure her royalty to Orestes. In this way, the Oresteian myth conceals within it the story of the incorporation of Metis. If we reread the Oresteia in relation to the myth of Metis, we are able to discover what I consider to be the defensive function of the Oresteian myth. That is to say, the Oresteian myth distorts and reworks the myth of Zeus’ rape and incorporation of Metis in such a complex way that it functions to keep it concealed beneath its manifest content. The Oresteian myth conceals this matricidal myth of Metis as part of the desire of the masculine cultural imaginary that seeks to eradicate the process and the memory of the mother’s exclusion (parturition). (Jacobs, 2007)

Therefore, in this way, the Orestreian myth effects censorship of the Metis myth for the purpose of consolidating and further sustaining the paternal law of the father. This paternal law depends on the foreclosure of a generative matricide. Yet the myth, like the dream (phantasy), reveals the traces of its censoring process through distortions, blanks, and alterations, which if analyzed properly can lead to the reconstruction of the original censored elements. Rereading the Oresteia in relation to the myth of Metis serves to restore a vital link between these two matricidal myths, whose severance hitherto has resulted in an incomplete analysis of the Oresteian myth and, further, has led to the situation in which matricide becomes a non-concept that cannot deliver its underlying structural law (Jacobs, 2007).

What is striking about the myth of Zeus and Metis is its representation of the violent primitive process of oral incorporation as the means by which what is desired and envied is appropriated and taken to be one’s own. To demonstrate the significance of this incorporation we must refer to Abraham and Torok’s distinction between incorporation and introjection. In their essay “Mourning or Melancholia: Introjection Verus Incorporation,” Torok and Abraham identify incorporation as a phantasy and introjection as a process; both are psychic mechanisms that attempt to negotiate the loss of a loved object. In the case of Metis, a loved maternal object.

To describe and understand this psychopathology of the psychotic foreclosure defensive function which acts like Metis’ parturition and incorporation function by Zeus to foreclose the scar of the navel (belly-button), the indelible mark of connection to and disconnection from the original maternal, the “original maternal body” can also be represented as the intimate space once enjoyed with someone once romantically loved or the intimate space of brotherhood once enjoyed between business associates, family members, or gang members.

The psychic mechanisms of introjection and incorporation both pertain to taking something inside, but incorporation is not a process. For Abraham and Torok, it is a phantasy that blocks the possibility of transforming the loss into symbolism. That is to say, transforming the loss into personal symbolism. Incorporation defends against the process of introjection in whole object relations. In the process of introjection, the loss of the loved object is acknowledged and mourned, allowing the loss to be converted into words. It is through the process of introjection that the loss becomes generative. Incorporation, however, is a phantasy that functions to deny the fact that there has been any loss at all: Failing to feed itself on words to be exchanged with others, the mouth absorbs in fantasy all or part of the person — the genuine depository of what is now nameless. The crucial move away from the introjection to incorporation is made when words fail to fill the subject’s void and hence the imaginary thing is inserted in the mouth in their place.

Incorporation is a refusal to introject loss. Incorporation results from, those losses that for some reason cannot be acknowledged as such. In this way, the incorporated object is rendered as unspeakable, unknowable, unable to be mourned or replaced with a substitute. Incorporation is the annulment of figurative language and allows for the fantasmic destruction of the action by means of which metaphors become possible. The phantasy of incorporation functions in the active destruction of representations. Thus, the clues are rendered as active destruction of the metaphorical through incorporation (parturition). Secrecy is imperative for survival and since incorporation is an eminently illegal act it must hide its face even from the ego.

If we analyze the TV show Star Trek and The Next Generation, the incorporation process might be recognized as the act of “assimilation” in Borg attacks against innocent and vulnerable populations. We witness similar attacks in acts of genocide and the brainwashing techniques used to transform gays and lesbians into heterosexuals. In psychiatry, the use of electroconvulsive shock (ECT) therapy has been used to transform patients into more “model citizens.” Of course, surrounding the medical therapy known as ECT is the requirement of legal consent. But we can certainly understand how the patient gets “gobbled up” and thereby transformed by the power of the intellectual authority in possession of advanced bio-medical power. What is the connection? Doctors, men in possession of advanced bio-medical power, also get to decide who lives and who dies.

Big Brother or Black Brother? A psychoanalytic investigation of alliance parturition function and foreclosure and what that might tell us about human psychopathology

‘Big Brother’ Fans Are Accusing the Show of Racism — Has a Black Person Ever Won?

A significant portion of this writing came from Amber Jacobs’ 2007 book, On Matricide: Myth, Psychoanalysis, and the Law of the Mother. New York. Columbia University Press and is listed in the sources below. But first, let me start off with a brief discussion about the psychoanalytic roots of targeting and my personal experience being a targeted individual.

I am a targeted individual (TI). The last time I was sent to a psychic ward, which was on June 14, 2021, the psychiatrist assigned to my case was Dr. Shamilov who explicitly stated to me that “it was not my mother who was doing this to me.” First, I have to go on a bunch of assumptions here. Assuming of course that what Dr. Shamilov was talking about is the gang stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture I am experiencing. And then, assuming that somehow the psychiatric community is involved based on the fact that an authority in the psychiatric community, a medical doctor, knows what my personal case of gang stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture is all about. The next assumption is that this phenomenon is about experimental medical technology that manipulates the human brain or the authorities have uncovered my perpetrators.

Next, in this line of hypothesis, is stating the psychoanalytic truths that uncover the fundamental wrongful intent in the practice of gang stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. This phenomenon eerily points to the indexical sign of incorporation as the means by which what is desired and envied is appropriated and taken to be one’s own. The psychopathological defense function of incorporation has a myth that is used to better understand its reason, causes, and purpose, like Freud’s Oedipus, in Greek mythology. This myth is known as the incorporation of Metis by Zeus. This myth, similar to Freud’s Oedipus, helps us to understand psychopathology. And it goes like this, Zeus swallows whole the pregnant body of his wife Metis. Then, Zeus and Metis’ fully formed fetus springs forth from the head of Zeus. To understand this myth, we analyze the narrative content of what is happening. I have stated one of the things that is happening is Incorporation. Incorporation of the mother and her subsequent disappearance/destruction form the process by which Zeus establishes his power. With the incorporation/swallowing/consuming of the pregnant mother. Zeus not only achieves the appropriation of the female reproductive capacity together with the “wisdom” of Metis, his wife but also effectively swallows and obliterates the mother-daughter relationship. Here, if we delve further, we uncover that Zeus himself possesses anxieties regarding his own mother. But how can that be? Zeus is the ultimate creator. He doesn’t have a mother and thereby debunks the entire system of an omnipotent fatherly diety and religion itself.

To further analyze, since the mother-daughter relationship has been destroyed with the disappearance/destruction of Metis, the fact that she has been swallowed whole into the belly of Zeus expresses Zeus now has infantilized Metis. Metis has now taken on the position of the fetus inside the male womb/brain. The appropriation gestation achieves the fusion of the mother into the daughter with the final product being Athena. Through his incorporation of Metis, Athena is born the motherless daughter, who will never become a mother herself but will remain a virgin daughter forever: an asexual, aggressive virgin, veiled, armed, synthetic, all artifice, seduction, and defense, a femininity created from the mind of Father Zeus. We can certainly come to understand how this explains some creative perversion of lesbian/transgender sexual/gender roles. But lesbians, nor do transgender people, do not normally pose a threat to the larger social order we live in. However, in the minds of some, unconscious fears surround gay and lesbian sexual orientations and these individuals are cast as phantoms, spirits, ghosts that frighten and threaten to annihilate us.

The myth of Zeus’ parturition functions to foreclose the question of the scar of the navel (belly button)the one indelible mark of the connection to and disconnection from the original maternal body. Athena becomes the precious proof that the father is the prime author of identity. She will represent this grandiose logic/phantasy and devote her work to endorsing and institutionalizing it as law in her court of justice, as dramatized in the Oresteia. Unaware of the story of her own mother, Athena will condemn Clytemnestra and declare that the mother will not be mourned. The murdered mother will signify no loss, and Athena’s culture will collectively deny that there has been any loss at all. It will become a buried loss that cannot be mourned, experienced, or represented. The name of Metis is shrouded in silence along with the eradication of the navel as a symbolic mark of the generative link between offspring and mother. Eradication of Metis via the incorporation defensive function sustains the parthenogenetic phantasy on which Zeus’ order is based. Athena, as Zeus’ perfect abstraction, represents the radical divorce of the patriarchal social symbolic order from its roots to the flesh of the maternal body and the violence committed against the mother. Metis the Titaness is ransacked, raped, pillaged, and eaten. She will then be eradicated from representation in the moment that Zeus’ order of democratic justice is established through his perfect creation: Athena and her court of law.

What are the implied probabilities to this kernel of psychoanalytic Truth that by its very nature represents proof or evidence? The possibilities are vast no doubt with a wide array of interesting case vignettes.

To demonstrate the significance of Zeus’ incorporation for the sake of argument, let’s reiterate Levi-Strauss’ point that in order to understand one myth one needs to explore its relationship to other myths. The Metis myth is matricidal. It inextricably relates to the Oresteia yet is only visible in the latter through the figure of Zeus’ perfect abstract creation, The Court of Law of Athena. Athena’s motherless status functions to secure her royalty to Orestes. In this way, the Oresteian myth conceals within it the story of the incorporation of Metis. If we reread the Oresteia in relation to the myth of Metis, we are able to discover what I consider to be the defensive function of the Oresteian myth. That is to say, the Oresteian myth distorts and reworks the myth of Zeus’ rape and incorporation of Metis in such a complex way that it functions to keep it concealed beneath its manifest content. The Oresteian myth conceals this matricidal myth of Metis as part of the desire of the masculine cultural imaginary that seeks to eradicate the process and the memory of the mother’s exclusion (parturition).

Therefore, in this way, the Orestreian myth effects censorship of the Metis myth for the purpose of consolidating and further sustaining the paternal law of the father. This paternal law depends on the foreclosure of a generative matricide. Yet the myth, like the dream (phantasy), reveals the traces of its censoring process through distortions, blanks, and alterations, which if analyzed properly can lead to the reconstruction of the original censored elements. Rereading the Oresteia in relation to the myth of Metis serves to restore a vital link between these two matricidal myths, whose severance hitherto has resulted in an incomplete analysis of the Oresteian myth and, further, has led to the situation in which matricide becomes a non-concept that cannot deliver its underlying structural law.

What is striking about the myth of Zeus and Metis is its representation of the violent primitive process of oral incorporation as the means by which what is desired and envied is appropriated and taken to be one’s own. To demonstrate the significance of this incorporation we must refer to Abraham and Torok’s distinction between incorporation and introjection. In their essay “Mourning or Melancholia: Introjection Verus Incorporation,” Torok and Abraham identify incorporation as a phantasy and introjection as a process; both are psychic mechanisms that attempt to negotiate the loss of a loved object. In the case of Metis, a loved maternal object.

Big Brother or Black Brother? A Psychoanalytic Investigation Into Human Psychopathology

Entertaining a theoretical dialogue using the incorporation of Metis by Zeus myth, we uncover psychoanalytic clues in this season’s version of Big Brother. In this new season, a new alliance group has been formed known as “The Cook Out.” This new alliance group is comprised primarily of black house guests. This alliance systematically annihilated and voted out all the white male house guests and they are now working on all the white female house guests. This suggests an unconscious defensive function of at least one of the black house guests, the leader running the alliance of “The Cook Out.” We can surmise that because of the actions taken, those actions identify an incorporation phantasy as a psychic defense that attempts to negotiate the loss of something once loved. But what was it that the leader of “The Cook Out” once loved so dear, that they are basing an “all-white expulsion of house guests?” And the myth we use, in psychoanalysis, to uncover the obscured wound is the incorporation of Metis by Zeus myth in Greek mythology. To describe and understand this psychopathology, the “kicking out” defensive function acts like Metis’ parturition function by Zeus to foreclose the scar of the navel (belly-button), the indelible mark of connection to and disconnection from the original maternal body. But the “original maternal body” can also be represented as the intimate space once enjoyed with someone once romantically loved or the intimate space of brotherhood once enjoyed between business associates or gang members.

The psychic mechanisms of introjection and incorporation both pertain to taking something inside, but incorporation is not a process, For Abraham and Torok, it is a phantasy that blocks the possibility of transforming the loss into symbolism. That is to say, transforming the loss into personal symbolism. Incorporation defends against the process of introjection in whole object relations. In the process of introjection, the loss of the loved object is acknowledged and mourned, allowing the loss to be converted into words. It is through the process of introjection that the loss becomes generative. Incorporation, however, is a phantasy that functions to deny the fact that there has been any loss at all: Failing to feed itself on words to be exchanged with others, the mouth absorbs in fantasy all or part of the person — the genuine depository of what is now nameless. The crucial move away from the introjection to incorporation is made when words fail to fill the subject’s void and hence the imaginary thing is inserted in the mouth in their place.

Incorporation is a refusal to introject loss. Incorporation results from, those losses that for some reason cannot be acknowledged as such. In this way, the incorporated object is rendered as unspeakable, unknowable, unable to be mourned or replaced with a substitute. Incorporation is the annulment of figurative language and allows for the fantasmic destruction of the action by means of which metaphors become possible. The phantasy of incorporation functions in the active destruction of representations. Thus, the clues are rendered as active destruction of the metaphorical through incorporation (parturition). Secrecy is imperative for survival and since incorporation is an eminently illegal act it must hide its face even from the ego.
