Some Psychoanalytic Insights on the Psychology of Castration Fantasies and the Vanished Pregnant Body in Psychoanalytic Theory; Analyzing the Targeted Individual 

The Post-Female Pregnant Body and the healthy experience. Female psychoanalysts posit the importance of positive female body experiences especially when it comes to the female pregnant body and a little girl’s development of positive gender identity. The pregnant body with regard to symbolism and imagery has actually been omitted in theory building to date (2012). The absence of this icon of female body image development from cradle to grave suggests the gender politics of the 1970’s “who is wielding social power in the composition of theories in general (Balsam, 2012).” This theory would make absolute sense in curbing sadistic attacks toward female bodies (both from the masculine and feminine gender orientation).

Being a woman and a student of feminine psychoanalytic theory, I have come to believe that the person carrying out my electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture (assaults against the female body) possess an amalgamation of Freudian castration complex fears along with the sexual perverse fantasy of watching the female flesh expand thereby dehumanizing the target through rendering the target immobilized with diminished mobility and mental capacity. This is certainly what has happened to me when forced into sleep through electromagnetic stimulation/sedation thereby ushering in weight gain by blocking movement and exercise. This offers up a very interesting clue to the pernicious thoughts of the perpetrator. He/she very well may find pleasure in humiliating their targets. In addition, the perpetrator may find the thought of fat/inferiority/weakness/pregnancy extremely distasteful as it does not constitute a form of social capital in the ability that allows one to move freely within a woman’s environment. It has been said the most vulnerable position a woman can place herself in is in the state of pregnancy. Some people may associate “pregnancy” with “fat” and thereby inferior vulnerability. This is not surprising as the female expanding body, as in pregnancy and later, as women age are sometimes seen as the iconic “matriarch,” (the dead mother) can be viewed as just another humiliating aspect of patriarchy and Father Time’s denial of youthful beauty and playfulness. That is, as in sexual youthful playfulness (see the Paranoid Schizoid Position).

Many feminists have talked about this fear of the female body (fear of pregnancy and the fear of turning into one’s mother as women age; that iconic matriarch) lurking in the dark shadows of their own psyches and which promotes their hostility not only toward male dominance, but also hostility towards images of youthful beauty and anger at their own aging body. That is, their own aging body that represents the uncontrollable aspect of the pre-Oedipal terrain; ambivalence. This certainly plays into castration fantasies on multiple levels and not just towards the female self as seen in plastic surgery and invasive cosmetic treatments, but in the annihilation of Objects in one’s relational world (object relations theory) as observed in the paranoid-schizoid position and the repetitive assaults against female flesh in rape. The expanding aging body is just another aspect of this fear as the body loses elasticity with old age and is prone to weight gain and other bodily distortions that belong to aging. It’s not only women who possess these narcissistic fears (though they may be childish and infantile), but it is also men who possess these fears towards female flesh (the female pregnant body and the female aging body) as well as their own aging bodies. It is, for this reason, I contend that the Vanished Pregnant Body or Vanished Post-Delivery Body not only belongs to the psychology of women, but to men as well. If we consider the following written by Rosemary Balsam’s in “Women’s Bodies in Psychoanalysis” in Chapter 3, The Vanished Pregnant Body in psychoanalytic theory:

“A pregnancy [and therefore a pregnant body] might be viewed as female/inferior/irrational, being that most earthly of states, a symbol of woman as “body” to man’s “mind,” the fruit of guilt-laden sexual intercourse, the result of unseen meshing of ungovernable genetic codes. Even modern psychoanalytic clinical observations could be thus unwittingly affected so that pregnancy remains invisible in theory (or marginalized and bracketed in spite of the blatant presence and visual command of any pregnant woman who walks into a room of children and their richly evoked fantasies. …

The history of the medical vision of the female body suggests speculation on an abiding tendency in Western culture — in both men and women — the need to distort the female bodily configuration while making theories. My own speculations about how this may come about involve universal unconscious fears of pregnancy that are held by both men and women. This differs from the usual psychoanalytic view that the primary confusion about the anatomical distinctions between the sexes resides in concerns about phallic primacy (for both sexes — in their castration anxiety). We may not need to choose between the biological male or the biological female because major fears appear to involve both, rather than either/or.”

In this light of this information, we may also view the female pregnant body or large maternal body (post-delivery) with its enlarged breasts, buttocks, thighs, belly as that uncontrollable territory from infancy and childhood, and the division that separated us from her, that forever sought-after human flesh we find so maddening. It would be far too easy, and safe, to dismiss it as just another battle between the sexes. Safe, because this would help obscure and block any further required investigation into the subject matter and into what it really represents. Because that would expose its deviant perversion rooted in identity and problems with object relations. The creative perversion in transcending this fleshly boundary of maddening pre-Oedipal phase is found in the use of an electromagnetic tether and the use of the medical doctors that allow the perpetrator total control over his/her own fears surrounding that uncontrollable, ambivalent, maternal order. Perhaps, even as this creative perversion constitutes the balm for his/her own wounded narcissism that allows for the humiliation of the “Object Other” (see Jacobs, 2007, pp. 77–82). A humiliation that is rooted, not in empathy and compassion for, but in hatred and annihilation of an Object through paranoid fears.

And certainly, as a “fat body” and distorted female bodily configuration (body inflation fantasies and feeder fantasies) touch upon the inferior/irrational states of being and one that is of the most earthly of states (the human condition), guilt-laden uncontrollable indulgences at the pre-Oedipal breast, which ties into unconscious sexual fantasies in aspects of a forced nipple in the mouth as the canvas of that pre-Oedipal arrangement, and of the hedonistic sexual enjoyment that follows which are the roots of human intimacy and eventually sexual intercourse. The result of unseen meshing of the phallus with vaginal opening/mouth orifice. Nipple as phallus and life-giving nourishment and phallus as the nipple.

In the creation of a sexual perversion of the female body, that uncontrollable terrain becomes the controlled and governed Object that was once ungovernable and uncontrollable, perhaps even terribly unforgiving, to us. It is for this reason; the paranoid-schizoid position is part of both male and female abnormal development. The same paranoia that is rooted in the psychology of the male’s desire toward rape violence, is also rooted in the psychology of a female’s desire toward violence against the female flesh.

“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).

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.

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?

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.

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.

Defining and Identifying Victim Blaming

Why is victim blaming so common in today’s society?

“Why do people try and explain their abuse which places focus on the person with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)/Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), ie: the abuser, instead of the victim ending the abuse by ending the relationship?”

The above statement is an attempt to gaslight and devalue a victim’s right to explore and understand the reasons for their loved one’s mental illness by shifting the focus away from the mentally ill person and attempting to place blame and shame on the victim. Politicians know this as “spin“. (1) This type of language in discourse is myth-making language and is similar to rape myths found in cultures of deviance.

Research investigations into cases of sexual assault (rape) have uncovered the existence of dominant narratives supporting myths found in rape culture. These dominant narratives are prejudicial, stereotyped, false beliefs about rape, rape victims, and the rapists. These dominant narratives are widely believed and persistently held and are completely false.

Perspectiside

Perspectiside has been defined as the inability to know what you already know through gaslighting techniques of the abuser/narcissist. (2) This technique can be subtle or blatantly obvious to notice, but it involves getting the victim to question what they already know to be true. It creates confusion and disorientation by casting doubt in the minds of the victim and onlookers. For example, in the Steubenville rape case which occurred on August 11, 2012, students believed the girl who was gang-raped by members of the football team was responsible for her own rape because she got drunk and passed out. Not only was this girl gang-raped, but the men who raped her, urinated all over her after they were done. (3) The myth narratives which surfaced over certain students’ social media accounts consisted of phrases like, “If you don’t want to get raped, don’t get sloppy drunk homegirl.” Statements such as these are part of gaslighting techniques that seek to alleviate responsibility from those responsible and cast blame on to the victim in something that is also known as victim-blaming.

To understand its deleterious effects, let’s compare them to the historical event that sparked the massive hangings of “witches” in Salem, Massachusetts known as the Salem witch trials. (4) The cause of the Salem witch trials took root in the economic loss of one priest’s monthly stipend and the manifestation of a young 16-year-old girl’s, Elizabeth Knapp, bizarre symptoms which today have been posthumously diagnosed as belonging to hysteria. The psychological effects of growing up in an atmosphere of religious repression were harsh. To quote the book, A Delusion of Satan: The full story of the Salem witch trials:

“Terror and shame were used to encourage conformity even in the youngest. It was made clear to small children that they, were in as much danger of hellfire as adults. They were reminded that, however young they were, they might sicken and die at any time. The thoughtful ones agonized incessantly over the state of their consciences.”

In the Devaluation Phase of the narcissist, dominant myth narratives may be utilized by the abuser to procure conformity and act upon the consciousness of her behavior. (5) For example, a woman attempting to educate herself about her mentally ill husband might be greeted with a phrase like, “If you want to “educate” yourself why don’t you go into the basement and educate yourself about the plumbing problem?” This is an attempt to devalue the victim’s attempts at academic learning and bolster the worth of the plumber. It is a very common approach utilized by narcissists time and time again. It is a result of splitting, that is the splitting of Objects into “good” and “bad” parts belonging to the paranoid-schizoid position. (6)

When we compare this to the dominant narratives within the Steubenville rape case, dominant narratives that seek to alleviate the responsibility of the rapists and place blame on the actions of the victim, we can see striking similarities between the two (rapists/narcissistic abuser) dominant narratives.

The Violence of Self-Defense: Part II Analyzing Theory and Legal Studies

“Whenever and to whatever extent there is room for the use of arms or physical force or brute force, there and to the extent is there so much less possibility for soul force.” ~Mahatma Gandhi

To help understand the force of violence being imposed upon U.S. citizens through the use of gang stalking and electronic targeted assault, I would like to include some philosophical thoughts from Judith Butler. Butler tells us moral philosophers and theologians (two of my favorite topics of discourse) have asked:

“What grounds the claims that killing is wrong, and that the interdiction against killing justified? The usual way of handling this question is to ask whether that interdiction, commandment, or prohibition is absolute; whether it has a theological or other conventional status; whether it is a matter of law or one of morality. It is also accompanied by further questions, namely, whether there are bona fide exceptions to such an interdiction, when injuring or even killing is justified (Butler, 2020).”

Self-defense is one of the topics of debate that is usually arrived upon after asking the previously posed question. However, the term “self-defense” is a highly ambiguous term. After all, “self-defense” is usually part of militaristic modes of foreign policy that justify every attack as being part of “self-defense.” Even contemporary U.S. law makes concessions for preemptive killing. Every individual is part of a “broader sense of self.” The people who make up this “broader sense of self” are your loved ones; spousechildeven animals, and other people considered close to you. You have those that are close to you and who belong to this “broader sense of self,” and you also have those further away from you, at a distance from yourself and your loved ones. In the name of protection, a person may commit violence, even murder in the protection of these loved ones. But the law also sets up the distinction for those at a distance from you whom you may not violate or commit murder against. Judith Butler poses the following questions:

“So, what and who is part of the self that you are, and what relations are included under the rubric of the “self” to be defended? Are we more ethically obligated to preserve the lives of those who are close to us than to stand for the lives of those who are considered far away, whether in a geographical, economic, or cultural sense (Butler, 2020)?”

A topic of debate that is usually arrived upon after asking these questions involves “difference.” Racial and ethnic differences, cultural differences (presented as lifestyle choices)religious differenceshomosexuality, and transgender sexuality as difference. I imagine a new group will now emerge as the cannabis-loving group who will soon be stigmatized for their participation in legalized recreational marijuana use if it was not a previously known lifestyle choice. For it is perceived that “potheads” are not part of this egalitarian culture.

If I defend myself and those who are considered part of myself (or proximate enough so that I know and love them), then this “self” that I am, is relational. Yes? Of course, it is, but such relations, considered as belonging to the region of the self, are limited to those who are proximate and similar. One may be justified in using violence to defend those who belong to the region or regime of the self (Butler, 2020). However, the ideology arrived at here may be similar to a U.S. “militaristic mode of foreign policy that justifies violence” in “self-defense” but are also part of the violence belonging to gangs, the drug trade, and mafias which manifested itself as violence descended on the Capitol on January 6, 2021. That is to say, it belongs to part of an imaginary where delusions are bred. A group of men who hate women seek to protect their right to progeny which may be part of their actual biological lineage or part of metaphorical intelligence (e.g., the masculine intelligence that excludes women and other groups as intellectuals). The most frightening wars are the imaginary wars waged in the mind where no real threats to harm ever even existed (Dijkstra, 1986; Mitchell, 2000). It seems to me that gang stalking with electronic targeted assaults and organized crime syndicates like the Mob are part of a human phenomenon rooted in delusional beliefs. Delusional beliefs about one’s self and ‘Other’ which gave rise to phenomenon like the Salem Witch Trials. These groups expand claims of “self-defense,” violence they believe to be worthy protection from future violence: that is a violence done to others so that it is not done to one’s own (Butler, 2020)And what emerges out of this logic sometimes manifests as delusions held by extremist groups, groups whose perceived rights to entitlements and privileges, otherwise not given freely, are a violation to “the self.” This prohibition is now imposed on the other group perceived to be “privileged,” and these privileges will be preemptively taken away (ABC News, Examining Extremism in the Military, April 28, 2021). “Harming,” in this context, is to be perceived as the social behaviors that inflict adverse outcomes or adverse environmental conditions upon a social order that either considers itself to be predominantly egalitarian or is perceived as being egalitarian. The same perceived “harm” is presented in the form of social or cultural differences that target gay and ethnic communities.

But wait.

If smoking marijuana is a lifestyle or cultural choice, and if smoking marijuana is self-harming, why has it been legalized? If drinking alcohol is believed to be self-harming, why is alcohol consumption even allowed? And are these “self-harming” behaviors a component or by-product of the new phenomenon of electronic targeted assaults? Have new state legalizations surrounding cannabis use opened up an even broader avenue for which the state’s technological apparatus of control may be more broadly deployed through clandestinely electronic assaults? Maybe not, but how is one to find out if one does not fully even understand the phenomenon of gang stalking and electronic targeted assaults? Since clandestinely held secret operations are not only part of government operations, they are part of the mafia and mob hits and gangland-style murders. The use of this technology against U.S. citizens comes under alarming suspicion as it violates the very constitution on which this country was founded. It violates 4th amendment rights.

Another important distinction to recognize is the importance of language and dialogue in conflict resolution. When language and dialogue collapse, whether it be from an inconceivable violation (denial of “privileges”) in the distinction between what is “mine” and what is “yours,” or at some other failed to arrive at consensus, what inevitably will emerge are acts of violence against Other“The prohibition now opens up into a situation of War, in which it is always right to defend oneself or one’s own violently and in the name of self-defense, but certainly not to defend a whole host of others who do not belong to “one’s broader sense of self (Butler, 2020). “ In the deployment of electronic targeted assaults against U.S. citizens, people’s bodies are being usurped, stolen, and taken away from them which in concept is very similar to deceptive sexual practices and sexual assault which is a category of crime that sometimes presents a concept in crisis in legal studies, and is similar to the concept in crisis surrounding the phenomenon of gang stalking with electronic targeted assaults (Conaghan, 2019; Gibson, 2020). That is, a failure to arrive at conclusion as to whether or not some form of behavior is “assaulting.” That is, a violence or a violation done to the victim so that it is not done to one’s own, as an exception to the prohibition to violence that now becomes a potential state of war, or at least such a state that is coextensive with its logic (Butler, 2020). Since the “stealing of one’s body” has been classified as deceptive sexual relations or sexual assault, and the dehumanization of people within organizational structures becomes part of how corporate business is conducted (Christoff, 2014; Halsam, 2006), and even how gangs and mafia organizations have operated, one must ask the question, “How these electronic targeted assaults fit into the corporate-political agenda? Or even if they fit at all?” Or question, “Is it part of something much more problematic; invisible crime and invisible empires?” That is to say, “Is it a part of RICO?”

How is it still being carried out without federal and state intervention classifying the behavior of electronic targeted assaults as a violation to the constitutional rights of individuals? The war in the Middle East will be ending soon in the Fall of 2021. Will these electronic targeted assaults end too if they are part of the government’s “service surveillance security” operation of Homeland Security (law enforcement operations)?

It is important to convey the knowledge that electronic targeted assaults steal away from the individual their locus of control. When someone’s locus of control is removed, it inflicts a state of unhappiness and dysphoria because it takes away the individual’s sense of individual empowerment (Farnier, Shankland, Kotsou, Inigo, Rosset,& Leys 2021). Its long-term effect inflicts psychological damage and forces lifestyle changes that end up being detrimental to the victim (Sheridan, James, & Roth, 2020). Since cultural differences are a part of social differences, lifestyle choices become altered through this technology’s deployment. It is not hard to see how gang stalking with electronic targeted assaults tie into the drug culture and gang violence, even the phenomenon of dehumanization in organizational and corporate-political settings.

When I was in psyche, following a hit and run, drunk driving incident, where I was involuntarily detained for a week, a claim was made by other patients on the hospital ward. The claim was there were “body snatchers” coming in the middle of the night while the patients slept. These patients were removed from their beds by orderlies who put their bodies on gurneys and took them “away.” I was one of these patients. The patients were roofied but returned to their beds by morning. People wondered where were these patients going in the middle of the night, of which, no answer was ever given. Not even to me and I was one of the bodies that were stolen away in the night! Didn’t I have a right to know? This sounds like a scene right out of an Albert Hitchcock episode of “The Twilight Zone,” but it was really occurring. And now, several years later, I am experiencing “body snatching” electronic targeted assaults that mimic the very phenomenon that was occurring in the hospital ward during my stay there. Law enforcement was involved, of course, because I was in a car accident and struck another driver on the road. So, someone please tell me how this all fits together? Yes, I was guilty of a crime, and yes, I am mentally ill, but do I deserve to be tortured for it for the rest of my life? I am no less mentally ill than the philosophy “man sprung fully formed into his social and political environment, responsible and independent.” Or no more mentally ill than Robinson Crusoe, that solitary man who sprung fully developed into his social and political environment, stranded on an island all by himself never having known dependency. That first figure of primary “natural man,” completely self-sufficient even when he looked at himself in the mirror, blind to his mother’s upholding and support of him, totally and completely self-sufficient. Or no more mentally ill than Karl Marx’s Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts of 1844, in which he ridiculed with great irony, that in the beginning “natural man” is like Robinson Crusoe. A man all alone on an island, providing for his own sustenance, living without dependency, without systems of labor, and without any common organization of political and economic life, without ever having known the dependency of a woman. Except, I was born a female, a woman fashioned in the gender role these very ideologies obliterate! The female all men need to evacuate from their psyches, a mother, a sexual partner, a wife. It’s an annihilation of Other in the service of a masculine self-defense mechanism. I am a dependent. I provide a domestic service as a non-wage earner. A service that has been directly tampered with through these targeted electronic assaults.

The problem with gang stalking with electronic targeted assaults is the element of shame and guilt. People feel shameful and embarrassed if and when they are exposed. As a result, they are afraid to tell their true story which might touch upon their mental illness or some illicit infraction. This directly contributes to the phenomenon’s obscurity because individuals hide the truth and are afraid of exposing the true nature of their experiences. Much like how the mafia controlled law enforcement with intimidation and fear, this technology’s apparatus of control is the same intimidation and fear of castration. For many years, Edgar J. Hoover was afraid to address the mob and enforce constitutional law because he was afraid of its lethal repercussions. He knew that good men, not might die, but that they were going to die in the war against justice. Here is the problem. Some forms of justice are phantoms, delusional apparitions held because of man’s fear of dependency and castration.

It’s very possible that these same mechanisms are working together on a corporate-political scale, and are the same forces responsible for the dehumanization of people within organizational settings, or at least these entities possess the same mentality that dehumanizes people in general. This mentality is adhered closely by sadists and people with the Dark Triad and the Dark Tetrad character traits (Buckels, Jones, & Paulhus, 2013; Johnson, Plouffe, & Saklofske, 2019; Krick, Tresp, Vatter, Ludwig, Wihlenda, & Rettenberger, 2016; Lyons, & Jonason, 2015).

Perhaps I’m missing another organizational structure in which these same mechanisms work and operate, the family, thereby making it a family-corporate-political conglomerate historically known as The Mob and organized crime.

Invisible Chains: Coercive control and how new technological innovations are abusing and entrapping people in everyday life

Image for post

This is a re-posting of an original article published on May 3, 2019 over http://www.proclivitiesprinciplewisdom.wordpress.com

“The domestic violence field faces a similar predicament when it tries to account for how battered women behave without identifying their “cage” …. the cage remains invisible as long as we omit the strategic intelligence that complements these acts with structural constraints and organizes them into the patterns of oppression that give them political meaning.”  (1) pg. 198

I would like to open my discussion today about the coercive control of men over female bodies. But this is not just about women, although it is men who primarily victimize women, this is about clandestine technological victimization of people through implants that work on wireless radio waves signals. I would like to integrate into this discussion of coercion the use of advanced technologies that have been developed for mastery and control over the human body and to note the element of boundary violations in man’s attempts to master and control a subject. Men, for centuries, have tried to conquer and manage their death in terms of its prevention, curing, and thwarting progressive symptoms of disease. Some of these new technologies developed in modern medicine run off of radio frequency signals. The same strategies that doctors use to prevent, cure, and stymie progressive disease symptoms are the same types of strategies abusive men use over their partners in response to thwarting the dreaded death drive in support of the life drive. The death drive is one of the three fundamental drives Sigmund Freud hypothesized about which include also the sex drive. These drives in the human psyche can create unconscious repetitive behaviors that become maladaptive to everyday living. The roots of these unconscious behaviors are cloaked in delusions, fantasies, and myths. It is these maladaptive repetitive behaviors that do not serve us well when it comes to our intimate partner relationships and can be very one-sided in that they do not consider the other person as a speaking subject in her own right, with her own wishes, and own autonomy. I use the pronoun “she” but it could just as well be “he” as we are a gender-fluid and presumably inclusive society and perversions rooted in the primal scene are part of a growing social diversity. It totally forecloses upon the subject’s position in the argument and completely closes down any discussion that may produce fruitful negotiations where both parties may benefit.

“To identify an active, aggressive woman with Truth is to defy a very long tradition that identifies strong females with deception and virtuous females, including muses, with gentle inactivity.” ~Alicia Ostriker, “The Thieves of Language: Women Poets and Revisionist Mythmaking.”

Coercive control over women is seen in the personalities of abusive men over their wives, intimate partners, and children. It can also be observed in women, in their everyday interaction with co-workers, friends, business associates. It has been seen in police interrogations, political leadership, religious leadership, as well in the everyday interactions with abusive individuals who must maintain control and dominance at all costs in order to prevent annihilation from the death drive. The scope of this discussion will focus on the coercive control of advanced technology over human beings in domestic battery and domestic violence situations. One of the aspects of coercion in intimate partner relationships is known as microsurveillance. Microsurveillance is described as:

“….to detect disobedience or disloyalty, they may survey the minute facets of a woman’s everyday conduct in ways that are inseparable from the microregulation unique to coercive control, targeting not merely where they go, but how fast they drive, or how much money they spend, entering everyday routines in ways that obliterate autonomy. This type of surveillance injects fear even into such perfunctory choices as whom they ask for directions or which route they take home as well as when they arrive, until choice itself becomes frightening. Intimate surveillance extends from going through drawers, pocketbooks, diaries, or closets to monitoring time, phone calls, bank accounts, checkbooks, and stealing identity, using global positioning devices (cyber-stalking), or installing video cameras to track or monitor a partner’s movement. Surveillance is almost universal in abusive relationships. Eight-five percent of the women in the Tolman study and over 90% of the English women reported that their abusive partner monitored their time, for instance. Particularly in combination with microregulation, microsurveillance gives coercive control an intensiveness found in no other form of oppression.(1)

Surveillance makes intimidation portable. It is at this place in my discussion that I would like to reflect on my previous post about the military’s transition in new technological innovations. Our US government has a direct interest in advanced project research. In fact, the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) supports universities, large companies, and small companies in their research, if their research will produce beneficial technologies that our military can monopolize upon. DARPA is working to develop and promote artificial intelligence (AI) for its beneficial uses and Google has signed on with DARPA in some advanced research projects. (2)(3) If you think about our smartphones, they run on Android systems. Part of Android systems is something call Google Play Services. Google Play Services grants permissions to Android Systems in accessing Body Sensors, Calendar, Camera, Contacts, Microphone, Phone, SMS (text messages), and Storage. Understanding that Body Sensors are sensors that are worn outside the body to monitor internal biological rhythms like heart rate, pulse, (Fitbit) even blood sugar (continuous glucose monitoring), the questions become, “Could Google be working with the military on biological implanted sensors that can be remotely accessed using an Android phone? Or has some rouge computer scientist discovered a way to clandestinely imbed software into a phone via the Google Play Store and access these implants in unsuspecting citizens?” Since devices can not only be worn outside the body, they can also be implanted inside the body, it is very reasonable to think that new technologies associated with implanted devices in experimental medicine (e.g., sensors) as well as other types of implants that could be used to access a person’s body remotely via Android systems through Google Play Services. It’s interesting to note that sensor diagnostics are used in modern-day automobiles with navigational “On-Star” systems linked to satellites. How these two might potentially be connected raises an interesting question; can this technology provide the very real possibility of giving a rouge agent access to another’s body and motor vehicle through remote monitoring. These new projects could also touch upon aspects of mind control and coercion of a human subject through remote clandestine rouge operations as well as eves dropping aspects that can be used to monitor behavior. Eves dropping issues have been reported in some published news reports as a potential problem with the android technology known as Alexa as well as new Smartphones and laptops that can “talk” and “listen” to our voices. This is the scenario I have theorized regarding my own personal victimization with what many individuals have described as targeting, mind control, and gang stalking. In a court of law, or as an adversarial argument to its detrimental possibilities this is purely speculation and is insightful in knowing how new advancing technologies may be moving individuals into an uncertain future with regard to privacy, safety, and protection of our 4th amendment rights.

The type of microsurveillance I have encountered and endured attempts to microregulate my behavior according to my perpetrator’s wishes and desires. This is accomplished by inducing electromagnetic fields that make a subject feel ill. When the individual performs the desired action, the electric current is turned off and the subject receives relief from the torture of the electromagnetic field. The period of relief does not last long and the cycle of control and dominance continues as the other person maintains absolute reign through surveillance over the subject by monitoring their activity. So, for example, the perpetrator may want me to stop using my computer. This could be accomplished in a few different ways. One, outfitted with tracking technology, my computer can be remotely accessed and located through a location finder. It can be either shut down, or they can make my online experience unpleasant and difficult for me by slowing down my computer system when they notice computer activity. GPS type tracking can be installed in my laptop computer, software that can activate an alert system, thereby alerting my perpetrators to my online or offline activity. Working with a slow computer system makes accomplishing a task very difficult and wastes precious time. Sensors implanted in the body can be activated wirelessly through a similar alert system and turn on or off via an electromagnetic field (radio frequency). So when I sit down in front of my computer laptop and turn it on the software alerts a third-party viewer. This is also done over my cell phone too with a type of Google tracking I previously described when Google Play Services interacts with Android Systems. I have noticed a decrease in electronic targeting if I do not sign in to my Google Gmail or connect my cell phone to Google Play Services. Also, when new “updates” occur over my cellphone when it is connected to Google Play Services, updates that allow me the use of even more features, immediately I have been located, my device finder turned on through the Google update and electronic targeting starts all over again. In addition, jamming devices might be used to intervene in computer operations and jam cell phone transmission. As far as targeting goes inside my house, this has also been accomplished. If the perpetrator wants you to physically move from one room to the next, and I believe this might be part of some type of gang stalking device, where the perpetrator has installed sensors or monitors that pick-up on movement. The electromagnetic field will be turned on, which in turn may force the subject to move away from its original position, say the living room to the basement. The signal fades or is either turned off as the subject changes location and moves farther away from the source. I have had this technology turned on when attempting to cut my grass and maintain an orderly lawn. I have had it turned on during crucially needed exercise sessions (I’m a diabetic) in the privacy of my own home which exercise is beneficial behavior aimed at maintaining wellness and good health. I have had it turned on when attempting to detail an account of my own abuses, thereby impeding cognition and scattering my thoughts. I have it turned on when I try to create new blog post articles about abnormal psychology and perverse deviant behaviors and unfair practices in medicine.

The direct consequences of microsurveillance can be dramatic. If a victim fails to accommodate her abuser’s “house rules” they may be made to endure an evening of cursing and screaming, or she may be denied privileges like visits with friends and/or the use of the car. This tight scrutiny turns some abused women into recluses as one of the aims of a batterer is alienation. In my personal experience, I have been made to endure long bouts of torture throughout the day and night, making everyday living difficult. I blame this technology for the onset of my weight gain. One of the obvious dramatic results of abuse may be seen in the physical appearance of the victim. The victim may physically appear uncared for, may have gained weight, and look disheveled, may have bruises, scars, or burns. Whereas before she became a victim of abuse, she maintained her weight and appearance well. This could also be a direct result of the technology being turned directly against her at night while she sleeps, waking her up and disrupting her sleep pattern or it is turned on during daily routines making it difficult for her to make accomplishments and create goals. The common symbolic theme is a theme of “disruption, disruption, disruption” in the production of invisible chaos. These “disruptions” have their origins with the onset of low-level frequency vibrations I receive to my lower body while sleeping and to which I have been awoken during my sleep repeatedly at night. These attacks have also turned on frequency in my head, which has caused me to feel discomfort. These attacks against the female body are routed in primal scene fantasy and can not only be explained through psychoanalysis but can also be explained through the philosophy of silence. Plato’s cave metaphor explains the philosophy of silence in which he disfigures the maternal body with his cave metaphor, rendering the fecund woman as an “oppressive place men seek escape” thereby denying the female body a voice within the domain of philosophy.

Plato’s Cave, Matricide, and Forensically Reading Silence

“Noelle Neumann suggested that silencing minorities usually happens by using social innuendos and non-verbal cues about the “right” opinion, her work does not rule out the possibility that some times social pressure may take a more active form with people supporting or even taking action to silence voices of disagreement.” (4) Neumann(p. 82) noted Rousseau wrote about a special tribunal, “the Censor,” that never existed, but that censorship is an important element in public opinion that preserves manners and morals by preventing opinions from growing corrupt and by hindering the dissemination of corrupted ideas (Rousseau, 153, pp. 140–141). (5) (6)

We might analyze the actions of the angry mob that stormed the White House and the violence that ensued after a Trump rally. The actions taken by US citizens that utilized violent aggression as a means to settle a perceived dispute suffered by the mobsters demonstrate how the “silencing” of corrupted ideas has been handled by the federal government. Destruction of property, violating personal boundaries through physical assault, and breaking and entering a protected federal complex while proclaiming threats to kill and harm innocent people is not how civilized people handle disputes. It is how people without a sound logical argument settle a dispute through the use of violence because they are lacking in the capacity to formulate a sound and rational argument based on a philosophical debate. Its method is quick and easy versus long and arduous.

I propose the rouge clandestine attacks of US citizens through gang stalking and targeting violence and the use of electronic assaults are part of the same subculture that stormed the White House. The silencing of groups and their unfavorable opinions can be observed in many cultures and under various conditions. During the civil rights movement, many whites wanted to silence every Negro who had the courage to stand up and fight for their rights. In the modern history of war, we witnessed the German Holocaust, the genocide of Serbs by the Ustashe, the genocide of the Bosniaks and Croats by the Chetniks, Bangladesh genocide, East Timor genocide, the Cambodian genocide, Guatemalan genocide, Anfal genocide, Rwandan genocide, Bosnian genocide, and the list goes on.

The racial tensions in America have not changed with yet more killings of young black people amidst the backdrop of COVID Lockdown. What we are witnessing in the phenomenon of the electronically targeted individual and the targeted individual suffering gang stalking is no different, albeit may not be based on racial or ethnic differences, but rather just conflict itself. In studying criminology, I learned sociologists have analyzed inner-city populations to understand how values and norms contribute to violence and the manifestation of violent subcultures. I propose there is an organized subculture that is clandestine (invisible like the mafia and the KKK) that utilizes violence as means to settle individual disputes or perceived wrongdoing through clandestine attacks. This subculture that utilizes violence is also utilizing advancing technology to do so and possesses a “mafia mentality” in the use of their ideological motivated violence.

There is an obvious element of sadistic pleasure a perpetrator derives in the degradation of punishing and abusing their victims:

“Controlling men establish their moral superiority by degrading and denying self-respect to their partners, a violation of what Drucilla Cornell calls “the degradation prohibition.” (7) According to philosopher John Rawls, self-respect is a “primary good” without which “nothing may seem worth doing, or if some things have value for us, we lack the will to strive for them. All desire and activity become empty and vain, and we sink into apathy and cynicism.” (8) (1)

A person who is being abused may report feeling “dead inside”, and this sentiment illustrates how important self-respect is to the personhood of an individual.

“Emotional abuse is particularly harmful in the context of a primary dependence, as when a parent degrades a child, when survival depends on approval, alternative sources of support are unavailable, and when the object of degradation is deeply invested in how the other feels about them (as well as in their judgment) and is unable to muster positive self-talk or other forms of resiliency to counter negative messages. The adult victim of coercive control is in no sense childlike. But the tactics used in coercive control can so disable a woman’s capacity to affirm her femininity that she mimics a childlike dependence on approval that significantly amplifies the effect of insults.” (1)

At this point in the discussion, I would like to detail the name-calling I have endured. Words like “whore” and “stupid,” along with malignant narcissist phrases like, “Look at her. She can’t do nothing about it.” Using the term “it” as a reference to the stalking, gang stalking, surveillance, microsurveillance, and electronic torture I have endured. The phrase, “You were nothing but his whore!” Are all testaments to voices that possess victim blaming mentalities that persist in mainstream thinking today. Ideologies that have monopolized on the victims’ past sexual histories that seek to place responsibility on to victims and allow sexual perpetrators to elude responsibility for any wrongdoing and to which has had a history in state law. This mentality has served mainstream patriarchy and has allowed for the continuation of brutal sexual assaults and promoted femicide. In the history of law, early childhood physical and sexual abuse, in the case histories of sexual assault victims, was permissible evidence at trial. They were known as “promiscuity laws,” and these laws prevented the victim of sexual assault any rights to prosecute the perpetrator if her past history revealed she suffered physical and sexual abuse in childhood. Phrases like, “She deserved to be beaten,” and “She deserves to be raped,” reveal the myth-making mentality that physical assault and rape are viable solutions, perhaps even “therapeutic solution” to unwise action, outspoken voice, or choice on the part of the female victim, or even perhaps the solution as a cure to her “deviant mental illness.” (9) (10)

Insults and put-downs are effective in coercive control because they play off complementary forms of deprivation, intimidation, and control that disable a victim’s capacity to respond and stand up for herself. It also facilitates the creation of self-doubt, as the victim questions her own perceptions and abilities. Targeting areas of female gender identity where the partner’s self-confidence may already be poor, the use of coercive control as a tactic for disabling a woman’s capacity to affirm her femininity utilizes forms of violence to establish the superiority of the abuser. As a result of the abuse, she may become alienated and withdrawn. Compromised by such forms of violence, the victim may feel helpless and without the necessary power to overcome such abuses. (1)

Shaming is another tool in the toolbox of abusive men and male batterers. “In shaming, perpetrators of coercive control demonstrate a victim’s subservience through marking or the enforcement of a behavior or ritual that is either intrinsically humiliating or is contrary to her nature, morality, or best judgment. In a perverse inversion of the 1950s high school practice in which girls proudly wore rings or letter jackets to signify their “trophy boyfriends,” abusive men have forced women in [reported] caseloads to bear tattoos, bites, burns, and similar marks of ownership visible to others.

Markings signify that a man has a personal interest in this woman that he will defend. But it also signifies she is vulnerable to exploitation or further abuse by others. Because of its link to ownership, marking often becomes a source of self-loathing and can prompt suicide attempts. Although there is no study evidence on this practice, it is so common that the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) and the American Academy of Facial, Plastic, and Reconstructive Surgery have developed a jointly run free program for removing tattoos and other scars inflicted on battered women and their children by abusers.” (1)

It is important to link the importance of body weight and physical appearance in the “marking” of a female in ownership by abusive men. Weight gain and diminished physical appearance are a by-product of not only the microregulation and microsurveillance, but also of degradation, and shaming of the victim. Bodily disfigurement furthers erodes a woman’s self-confidence and confuses her autonomy and self-identity with aspects the batterer imposes on her. In the case of the triumphant haircutter, Louise Kaplan describes a relationship between husband and wife, in her book Female Perversions, in which a wife was forced to endure her husband sexualized ritual of clipping a portion of her long golden locks during the act of sexual intercourse. Her punishment to wear a hairstyle that looked like a really bad haircut was the product of her husband’s unconscious fantasies rooted in his primal scene experience with his alcoholic mother and his fantasy involving female degradation. (11)

“The victim of coercive control is isolated from the moorings of her identity and, because identity is first and foremost a social construction, from her own unique personhood.” (1)

“Shaming also involves ritual enactments associated with sex, or basic bodily functions, such as eating, showering, dressing, sleeping, or using the toilet. Clients in my practice have been made to sleep standing up, wear their “bad” clothes for days without changing, eat without utensils, shower repeatedly or in cold water, denied toilet paper, and forced to use the bathroom with the door open, locks removed, or with a timer.” (1)

“Burt (1980) defines rape myths as “prejudicial, stereotyped, or false beliefs about rape, rape victims, and rapists” (p. 217). According to Lonsway and Fizgerald (1994) these beliefs are “widely and persistently held” and generally “serve to deny and justify male aggression against women” (p. 133). Because of the pervasiveness of these beliefs, some scholars and feminists use the term “rape culture” to describe the presence of rape myths in media and public discourse, as well as the general acceptance of these myths in general society (Whisnant 2009).” (10)

There is a believed myth rooted in fear when it comes to female sexuality, a myth that perpetuates a language of silence cross-culturally for women.

“It is obvious in clinical work that women’s silence is deeply influenced by their interactions with their mothers, as well as by the more familiar silencing by men of their wives and daughters that have been identified as manifestations of a heliocentric society……the historian Merry Weisner-Hanks draws a connection between silence and virtue in women: ‘Because Eve tempted Adam by using words, women’s speech becomes linked with sin and disobedience, and female silence is thus interpreted as a divine command.’ She goes on to say that, “Italian, English, and German, Protestant, Jewish and Catholic men all agreed that the ideal woman was……’ chaste, silent and obedient.’” (12)

The ideology that a woman, or any person for that matter, is required to be arbitrarily controlled through remote advanced technology, completely foreclosing on the subject’s voice as a speaking subject, in his or her own right, and the right to her own statements regarding her Truth in the matter. This is a violation of civil rights law which guarantees freedom and liberty in the pursuit of happiness set to one’s own autonomy. I used to wonder quietly to myself, “Why do some men and women fear women’s sexuality to the degree they are willing to kill?” Some unconscious reasons have directly to do with the female’s power to give life and become “the creator god,” or in aspects rooted in the fear of her power as the taker of life in sentencing one to death through literal and metaphorical withholding of the breast and the denying of mother’s vital nourishment and love. This fear is tangled-up in the human psyche’s experience of Oedipus, with the castrating defeat of the little boy by his father during early childhood development. It is also associated with the fear of being replaced in lateral sibling relations by the arrival of a new offspring. (13)(14)(15) But whatever the reason, female procreative power is feared by both men and women alike.

“Childbirth is woman’s talisman, manifest and indisputable evidence of female power. The ability to create new life is the earliest and most profound source of power, and we all, men and women, fear it.” (16)

Will we ever understand envy and jealousy in terms of female procreative power? Can we understand vehement hatred and psychotic foreclosure in the radical violent silencing of women as speaking subjects? It is only through delving into psychoanalytic literature and research, case studies, feminist writings, and queer writings that help to reveal the origins of this foreclosure and its possible psychotic nature in its foreclosure against the mother, and the father as well; how fetishized behaviors are formed, and aspects of sexual orientation established. (17)

The comparison to be made here with this last cited reference should be between electronic stimulation used by the US military and the use of the electromagnetic spectrum in electronic warfare and the use of electronic stimulation in sexual perversion involved in BDSM sex and sexual role-play and observed in acts of bondage and discipline. This connection cannot and should not be ignored as both are rooted in primal scene fantasy (War). Modern advancing technologies current and experimental capabilities against the backdrop of a nation in conflict with itself regarding gender, racial, ethnic, religious, and political differences and how those connections may very well contribute to the phenomenon we now know as the Targeted Individuals (TIs) and electronically Targeted Individual (eTIs).

The Reason Behind Gang Stalking and the Targeted Individual: One Person’s Account and How Shame Plays into Its Obscurity and Confusion

Image for post
Image: Dart that made a “bullseye” hit and a dartboard is a favorite game played by many.

The most intense electronic targeting began after I was involved in a hit and run accident while driving under the influence of alcohol and opiates. This event may have rendered me a target (a test subject) by researchers at the hospital I was sent to. A local hospital is known for its advances in treating brain trauma, and the trauma of war can cause brain damage in the form of mental illnesses like PTSD. Are these rogue attacks the result of state interest surrounding in “curing” me of my “disease?” The proclivity of the human race, especially in a police surveillance state, tends to ascribe negative traits to individuals who possess individual differences and has always been an obstacle in achieving peaceful human relationships. Another aspect to this targeting was an intimate relationship I had with a close friend of mine that wasn’t sexual in any way but rather turned rouge friendship. I, my close friend, and her husband were all using drugs and alcohol, and when her husband turned on me and forced sex, which ended in sexual assault, my friendship dissolved. This may have been the point of inception for my targeting, but this would make my targeted experience a criminal conspiracy, not by the federal government, but by the people who were involved in the drug deal and sexual assault, as I believe there exists more than just one lone operator. They may call me “narc” but it’s not because I’m a narcissist. In fact, the person who raped me is far more likely to be part of the paranoid-schizoid personality constellation.

When I describe these events, it makes me feel shameful, and I suspect this is the reason why people ascribe their targeting to rogue government conspiracies involving mind control, or NSA and CIA service security surveillance utilizing advanced technology that can “read minds” and transmit auditory voices into human skulls. It’s easier to ascribe this occurrence to government intrusion, and clandestine secret military operations because it allows the targeted individual to elude the responsibility that, they themselves, may have acquired a psychopathic personality within their orbit because of their past behavior, and these personalities are interested in destroying them because of psychic arousal for primal scene fantasies. My own shady past association may be the reason for my targeting. Targeted individuals may be having difficulty facing their truth which is, they themselves are/were abusing substances and/or the people responsible for abusing them are people who have always been part of their friendships and family arrangements. It’s simply this, that the psychopathic personality didn’t reveal his true identity to them until he had their victim exactly where they wanted their victim. That is, in a powerless and subjugated position. This is what psychopaths do. They wait, patiently, until the time is ripe for the yielding. Still, this does not give the perpetrator the right to get away with the harm they are inflicting on society.

I have not used illicit chemical substances since October 3, 2006. I no longer associate with my former “close friends” and have made the necessary adjustments to my lifestyle choices. However, this did not stop a psychopath from stalking me online and hacking a variety of my on-line accounts like Facebook, my e-mail server, and my WordPress blog. It didn’t stop them from inflicting pain and suffering into my world, utilizing electronic stimulation, attempting to stimulate and sedate me through clandestine, rogue orchestrations utilizing a wirelessly controlled implantable device like some type of sex toy that delivers stimulation to my genitals and anal regions and sedation through a neural radio frequency link. Nor did it stop them from targeting me both outside and inside of my residence during necessary activities like cutting the grass, aerobics and weight lifting (workouts beneficial for health), and cleaning my home.

Although I refuse to believe that this phenomenon is part of some clandestine secret military operations utilizing some form of abbreviated code name, I can’t deny my past history. But this past history shouldn’t be used like former “promiscuity laws” were used to exonerate men accused of acts involving brutal forms of rape because of “the victim’s past history with physical and/or sexual abuse in childhood.” This history isn’t meant to be used as an excuse to give some deranged lunatic a “defense” to continue his behavior and illude the responsibility he owes to the federal and state government and to the victims themselves!
