Utilizing Philosophical Principles of Game Theory in Uncovering the “State of Nature” of the Phenomenon of Electronic Targeting as Rooted in the Psychology of The God Complex

In this writing, I try to utilize philosophical principles in game theory to analyze the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking, electronic stalking, electronic targeted physical assaults, and psychotronic torture. Specifically, with stalking cases that have gone on for years as in protracted conflict of war. I am hoping my writing makes some sense.

In game theory, one of the most famous rational arguments for believing in “God”, that is to say, the Superior Being (SB) from the Hebrew Bible, is that of Blaise Pascal whose approach was decision-theoretic. That is to say, Pascal’s approach did not assume we play games with “God”, in which “God” actively chooses strategies. Instead, he supposes that each person makes a calculation about whether or not believing in “God” in an uncertain world is justified. Pascal also believed that a prudent person, in his cosmic ignorance, should bet his life on believing God exists. In game theory, this would provide the “ignorant individual” with the best possible outcome (#4 in the game matrix payout) with “infinite rewards both in life and upon death.”

First, is it justifiable to believe that all individuals suffering electronic stalking and electronic torture at the hands of someone suffering a “God Complex” is rational, logical, and justifiable? The answer is, No. Simply because not all individuals suffering this experience may be “hallucinating” their experiences. Second, might one be inclined to believe the target suffering electronic torture may be perceived as “an ignorant individual” by someone suffering a God Complex? The answer to this is Yes. I’m confronted with the problematic of how to prove this “invisible entity” carrying out the electronic torture exists and is not a figment of the victim’s imagination. I find in a research study conducted by Sheridan, James & Roth in 2020.

To quote from Stephen Brams, Game Theory and the Humanities: Bridging Two Worlds,

“This kind of choice is a decision in a one-person game, or a game against nature, wherein “nature” is God or some other Superior Being (SB). Unlike a player in a two-person game, “God”, if He or She exists, is assumed to be neither benevolent nor malevolent, though I do suggest … the Search Decision becomes more like a game if God or SB can influence the choice of a state of nature.” (pg. 70)

That is to say if God or the Superior Being can influence the choice of a state of nature (God exists vs. God doesn’t exist). In the protracted conflict found in the Book of Exodus, the state of nature that proves God’s existence was the ten plagues he inflicted upon Egypt. However, according to Stephen Brams’ theological opinion which is suited for his analyzing whether God exists or not in game theory, “God” becomes a neutral or indifferent player in the game. Certainly, Brams could not arrive at a more politically correct decision than this!

It is here I would like to make a point to clearly elucidate our world has become far less uncertain and far more knowable, providing principles of certainty, thereby making “belief in an SB,” such as the “God” of the Judeo-Christian religion, less and less justifiable. In fact, the entire phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeting (Global Positioning Systems and other electronic weapons utilized for targeting in warfare), and electronic targeted physical assaults, and psychotronic torture, is to make “the game” less unpredictable and far more controllable for the dominant players in the game, and, even more, constraining for those players without superior knowledge and access to advancing technology or the means to somehow acquire and utilize such forms of technology for military defense. To illustrate further, consider Brams,

“I do not analyze the so-called proofs of God’s existence (or non-existence) … In an excellent synthesis of the literature, beginning with Descartes, on the existence of God, Hans Küng (1980) argues that all such proofs are flawed, and I share his view. In place of proof, Küng argues for a “rationally justified” faith, which of course does not have the force of a logical proof but, as the subtitle of his book suggests, is “an answer for today.” This answer according to Küng is rooted in developing a fundamental “trust in reality”; Pascal’s wager may be seen as a reason, perhaps cynical, to develop this trust.” (pg. 70)

It is here that I like to make yet another point in regard to Hans Küng’s principle of “trust in reality” (1980) and the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking, electronic stalking, electronic targeted physical assaults, and psychotronic torture in that it mimics an “act of God,” but is decidedly being carried out by mortal human being(s) posing as “a God; agent provocateur”as a primary conspirator, or co-conspirator in a protracted game of conflict. According to Küng, all proofs on “God’s” existence as an SB are flawed. In place of proof to the existence of “God,” Küng argues for “rationally justified” faith, however, this argument does not provide logical proof. The answer, according to Küng, is developing a fundamental “trust in reality,” and using Pascal’s wager to demonstrate how the development of this “trust” is arrived at and then using Bram’s reframing of it as a Search Decision we arrive at some philosophical understanding in game theory regarding the purpose of electronic torture in the phenomenon known as Group (Gang) Stalking. It is these three (3) elements taken together; “trust in reality”Pascal’s wagerand the Search Decision that when they all come together, we begin to understand its purpose. Its purpose is to unhinge and unravel P’s arrived at the decision that “the Superior Being in the Hebrew Bible [“God”] exists.” In the absence of torture, this is the arrived at a logical determination for many players without resources in “the game,” even those who have suffered natural losses as the consequence of everyday living. That is to say, players who, due to no fault of their own, remain disenfranchised. The right for one to believe in this “God” as part of the Judeo-Christian faith is protected by the 1st amendment, which violates all targeted individual’s 1st amendment rights as well as their 4th amendment rights.

Pascal’s Wager, Trust in Reality, and the Search Decision

Pascal’s Wager assumes a person is in a betting situation and must stake his destiny on some view of the world. In his or her search for proof in (1) believing “God” exists, or, (2) believing “God” does not exist. The agnostic assumption stated in №223 of Pascal’s Pensées states “if there is a God … we are incapable of knowing what He is, or whether He is,” and “reason can settle nothing here … a game[!] is on.” What is more, is the fact that the SB’s existence remains indeterminate because the information that would settle this question is unattainable. Brams more accurately perceives “God” not as an individual but as “a state of nature.” The problem with that assumption is that it is in contradiction with the games played in the Hebrew Bible. For example, The Temptation Game (Gen. 3:1–6), Abraham’s Sacrifice (Gen. 22:1–13), Ten Plagues of Pharoah (Exodus 7–12), and a whole host of other games every student of the Bible would be familiar with. As far as my personal experience, electronic stalking, with electronic physical assaults and psychotronic torture is similar in nature to the protracted conflict in Exodus between Pharoah and Moses and the Israelites. In this game’s payoff matrix, the best possible outcome for “God” and Moses was to continue the “plagues” thereby revealing “God’s” power (#4=the best possible outcome), allowing Moses and the Israelites the freedom “to leave the country,” thereby leaving Pharoah and the Egyptians impotent. What is even more interesting is that God’s “plagues” are listed as “part of the state of nature.” For me, the analysis that most accurately describes “God” is most certainly as “a player in the game,” and one who makes conscious decisions based on what the other players do. He also reveals himself as one who is suffering from narcissistic personality disorder. An Adolf Hitler, if you will (see Donald Capps, 2009).

“Trust in reality” is one of Hans Küng’s fundamental principles playing into game theory that states, “I say ‘Yes’ to the uncertain reality of my own existence and of the world,” and as such, I commit myself to reality, relying on reality, allowing it to gradually unfold its meaning to me.” This postulate is most certainly held by those in positions of powerlessness and where P’s cosmic ignorance, weakness, powerlessness would certainly foster belief in a “Superior Being’s” existence in their reality, as such the “God” from the Judeo-Christian faith.

When I use the following terms, “cosmic ignorance,” “weakness,” or “powerlessness” I mean P’s ignorance in such fields of study such as geology (the understanding of geological forces), meteorology (the understanding of weather events), medicine (how disease proliferates), agriculture (how pestilences are deterred), psychology (understanding your opponent’s mental states), physics (understanding the principles and laws that allow fundamental physics to operate in building bridges, tall buildings, and landscapes, etc.) and so on and so forth. Speaking of pestilences, no other bug infestation could be as great for a human being as the one in which a person’s life is being surveilled through various electronic means. But, nonetheless about that; by “weakness” and “powerlessness,” I mean people whose free-wills are capable of being molded in order to be “lead and subjugated by someone with the dominant power.” I also mean by these two terms, those without the power to convince and influence others with their version of “truth,” as Nietzsche suggests. Nietzsche’s early essay, “On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense,” argues that Nietzsche believes the very idea of “truth” to be a lie. Truth is not an elephant that we must look at from multiple perspectives under this view and that, but rather truth is simply the name given to the point of view of the people who have the power to enforce their point of view. The only reality is the will to power. The truth, like morality, is just another fig leaf placed on top of this reality.

In addition, by using the terms “weakness” and “powerlessness” I mean, disenfranchised people such as the ancient Israelites who were dominated by superior power (Pharoah) under oppressive conditions. This has formerly made-up mostly the lower and middle classes. Certainly, those with advanced intellects and IQs need no proof of his “non-existence.” Additionally, one might consider the influence of the Pope and other church authorities on the followers of the Catholic faith, and too, consider how the Roman Catholic faith was not above physical torture to exact their power over “Other” in influence people’s decision making with regards to which faith they applied their energy (Murphy, 2012).

In the Search Decisionif P does not have any other dominant strategy, his or her best decision is to believe in “God” and “play the game of religion.” And here we can use a very useful quote by Blaise Pascal (Pensées, 1760/1950);

“One understands nothing of the works of God unless he starts from the principle that God willed to blind some and enlighten others.”

It is the Search Decision that may be employed to facilitate the dominant player’s position in exacting their punishment against the targeted subjects through electronic torture. This is a noncooperative game, where information is incomplete, and to which, in the end, there could only be one winner and one loser. A zero-sum game as in the protracted conflict in Exodus.

For, if meaning is to be derived at from human physical torture, what does its meaning tell us? Of course, there are many things this meaning tells someone. Here is a list of some I have deduced:

(1) There are sadistic dominant players in the world who are not above torturing others for pleasure (Lyons & Jonason, 2015; Krick, Tresp, Vatter, Ludwig, Wihlenda & Rettenberger, 2016; Johnson, Plouffe & Saklofske, 2019).

(2) That no matter how “faithful” or “good” one might adhere to their religious faith, “bad things happen to good people.”

(3) That a tortured life may not be worth living, for any former quality of life that may have existed before the subject’s electronic targeting has been usurped by the abuser.

(4) If the tortured subject (game player) still has any ounce of faith left, it might provide him/her some relief from their pain. (Consider the Book of Job)

Again, the aspect of indeterminacy, not only as to the reason for electronic torture but in establishing the identity of the “God” reigning over countless people, torturing them, making their life miserable, makes it difficult to ascertain what he or she truly wants. Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture seems to be a game of incomplete information, but one that is clearly a noncooperative game as the players seem to be diametrically opposed to one another making it a zero-sum game with one winner and one loser. This begs the question, “Who is really winning? Who is losing? It would seem the electronically targeted individual is losing out.

Of course, Blaise Pascal’s agnostic assumption, though during his lifetime may have been more relevant, today is completely flawed in my opinion. In today’s 21st century world, we have advanced and fostered the branch of academic study known as Psychoanalysis. It is, therefore, possible to know who “God” is as the SB of the Hebrew-Christian Bible through forensic profiling (see Donald Capps, 2009). Thus, forensic psychoanalysis lends itself to our understanding of what “God’s” nature actually represents. That is to say, what he represents to P’s search for him in their reality, although may provide peace in keeping the faith. In today’s world, we have identifiable markers we’ll call attributes that provide us the ability to establish identity (Elmer, 2003; Humphreys, 2011; Wang & Tucker, 2017). These traditionally are the attributes; first name, last name, birth date, social security number, address, driver’s license number, car registration, religious affiliation, and political orientation. These attributes all come together so that every individual’s identity can be known in the world. Along with these attributes we have physical traits such as; hair color, eye color, gender, weight, height, tattoo markings, and birthmarks. These make up the physically identifiable traits that allow one to become recognizable in the world. “God’s” indeterminate status does not allow “P” to know what these attributes are because he has chosen to hide them from us. We can most certainly understand the perpetrators’ of electronic stalking, electronic physical assaults, and psychotronic torture purpose for hiding these very identifiable attributes. They choose not to reveal themselves explicitly, but implicitly through the arrival at scientific forensic analysis. Most specifically what they hide are their gender and name. Although any student of psychoanalysis studying gender theory can discover the masculine / feminine behavioral attributes associated with individual behaviors. The study of such concepts can allow one the ability in establishing a perpetrator’s gender orientation and identity. Or are we to assume anthropomorphism in all cases where identity is not known? Although “God” chooses to hide his identity from his subjects, he has left clues about his personality. Of course, I assume “God’s” gender, hair color, eye color, weight, height, religious affiliation, and political orientation change, as one would expect, when old rulers exist and new rulers take over.

On Pierre Bourdieu’s Social Capital Theory

IMAGE: Surrealism artwork of a game of chess. In Game Theory, each move directs the game’s progress and repositions an alternate possible outcome of the game.

DEFINITION: The Perverse Structure as psychoanalytic disavowal. The pervert disavows castration; he/she perceives that the mother lacks the phallus, and at the same time refuses to accept the reality of this traumatic perception (Lacanian Theory). This psychoanalytic theory plays into homosexual compromise but it is also rooted in personality disorders such as the paranoid-schizoid.

I contend with adversarial arguments that insist the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture are delusions and hallucinations made manifest from the diseased mind. As a person who has suffered electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture as part of her stalking, I have had my ability to speak impaired through remote artificial electronic stimulus that induces sedative states. The American culture has been steeped in racial conflict simply because our founding forefathers wrote into its nation’s legal instrument a doctrine with deep caustic roots which is near to impossible to excise from the social order (see Butler, 2021). The historical-based dichotomy of “valuable groups” and “nonvaluable groups” dates back centuries to past various Inquisitions and Holocausts that tend to isolate certain groups from the main group. That is to say, isolation from the group that possesses the dominant power. In light of this information, we might consider the Department of Defense’s work with Google in uncovering “Deep Fakes.” Deep Fakes are video/photos and audio recordings of individuals speaking a specific dialogue but who, in fact, never spoke the words. These are the latest in the tools of counter-intelligence, espionage, and the spreading of lies. In fact, there is a new app in the Google Play Store called “Re-face.” I had a bit of fun with it and anyone can download it for a free trial period.

I contend with any adversarial argument that the technology of Deep Fakes is built into the technology of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture as tools of audio surveillance in recording possible time voice signatures and the creation of “data”. I say this because an aspect to this technology is “listening” (intelligence gathering). As such this data, just like a photo or video, can be subject to corruption.

This technology also usurps an individual’s identity from the targeted subject and reshapes it to the desire of the controller/operator/agent. Consider Bourdieu’s argument that language is primarily shaped by nation-state supporters whose desire is to influence an elite-based standard of linguistics. But this is not just limited to linguistics, it also ties into forming and shaping the conduct of the subject and can play into Lacanian perverse scenarios. (See Butler, 1997; and Friederich Nietzsche’s Genealogy of Morals; Georg Wilhelm Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit.) Combine this argument with the argument that analysis of symbolic power in relation to political institutions concerns itself with the separation between professional public figures and the general public and the purpose for this separation is to reduce the public to the status of “consumers.” (Bourdieu, 1991, p. 172) This aspect of control places the symbolic power in the hands of certain homogenous groups who desire may be to promote their own personal ideologies and political positions. “This separation, [Bourdieu] argues in “Political Representation,” is one that leaves professionals with the cultural capital to create political products, programs, and campaigns, but to do so within a limited set of options.” This makes sense when we consider the entire criminal purpose of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture exists as a mechanism for controlling certain targeted individuals. “The limited set of options” we might conclude, as in the case of the Colonial Pipeline hack, was the resulting prosecution by the Justice Department of the criminal group known as Darkside which provided a means to dike and recuperate damages resulting from these cyber-attacks. (Please see Justice News, Justice.gov, Monday, June 7, 2021.)

The symbolic expression of language can be used as a therapeutic mechanism as artists have used creative mediums to arrive at closure upon a subject matter. Painters, sculptors, engineers, writers all use their crafts as a means of expression. But symbolic expression can also become a creative perversion with detrimental outcomes for certain groups. If we read the silencing of various groups during the German Holocaust; Jews, Jehovah Witnesses, homosexuals, and the disabled as a cause to their “nonvaluable” status and the more modern event of ransomware attacks that target suspected wealthier middle- or upper-class individuals and organizations to pay money to entitled criminal groups. The perverse solution is perhaps closer to the truth than a sham if we know how to read its silencing and denial correctly, and as Janine-Chassegeut Smirgel tells us we are all open to the perverse solution because creative problem solving is rooted in the human psyche. As she tells us, “…all of us are open to the perverse solution which constitutes a balm for our wounded narcissism and a means of dissipating our feelings of smallness and inadequacy. This temptation can lead to our losing the love for truth and replacing it with a taste for sham (pg. 24).” The person carrying out my Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture represents as “a Lacanian pervert” for all intense purposes of this psychoanalytic investigation in that it represents “a disavowal of a denied phallus (e.g.; the little boy’s/girl’s ability to castrate).” The truth that is exposed is in how he/she gets around the inescapable nature of natural human destiny with his/her feelings of smallness and inadequacy. He/she cannot allow the natural course of events to transpire uninterrupted. He/she must re-divert destiny to an alternate world of his/her own creation. A creation where he/she will reign as the supreme creator God (through sadistic attacks) in an alternate reality. Hence, we arrive at an understanding and purpose for the world of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. Except, torture is a felony! (Please refer to the character traits known as the Dark Triad and Dark Tetrad see Sources.)

In Nietzschean View: Defining the conception of truth

The Doctrine To The Will To Power

Friedrich Nietzsche is critical of the very idea of objective truth. That we should think there is only one right way of considering a matter is only evidence that we have become inflexible in our thinking. Such intellectual inflexibility is a symptom of saying “no” to life, a condition that Nietzsche abhors. A healthy mind is flexible and recognizes that there are many different ways of considering a matter. There is no single truth but rather many.

At this point, interpreters of Nietzsche differ. Some argue that Nietzsche believes there is such a thing as truth but that there is no single correct perspective on it. Just as we cannot get the full picture of what an elephant is like simply by looking at its leg or looking at its tail or looking at its trunk, we cannot get a reasonable picture of any truth unless we look at it from multiple perspectives.

This is a critical point I have arrived at when analyzing the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with Electronic Targeted Assaults and Psychotronic Torture. The main “go-to” assumption is that this phenomenon represents federal or state authority’s interference into the private lives of its citizens under the historical aegis of “Mind Control.” When in fact, what may be the problem is one of any number of, or multiple of things, such as domestic violence, intimate partner stalking, organized gang activity targeting the gang’s perceived enemies, a real estate scheme to move occupants and conquer territories, a conspiracy within a particular state government, a conflict between business partners, etc., and so forth. And I am not discounting the idea that it may be an invisible war being carried out in response to the torture of many Muslims owing to the “dirty tricks” instituted by former President George W. Bush’s War on Terror following 9/11 and the opening of Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba.

Just a recap and brief history, the Bush administration decided in February 2002 to abrogate the Geneva Conventions regarding detainees. Then it created a legal justification for torture by defining the term in such a way — it must produce pain “equivalent in intensity to the pain accompanying serious physical injury, such as organ failure, impairment of bodily function, or even death” — that most acts of torture fell outside it. This standard was embodied in the so-called torture memos drafted in 2002 by the Justice Department lawyers John Yoo and Jay Bybee; those documents did for the twenty-first century what the papal bull Ad extirpanda did for the thirteenth. With that threshold in place, the Bush administration drew up a list of techniques — including isolation, twenty-hour interrogations, nudity, hooding, standing for long periods of time, deprivation of light and sound, the use of dogs — and conveyed the list to interrogators on the scene. In fact, many medical doctors were present during the sessions of torture carried out at Guantanomo Bay.

It is no surprise that Guantanamo Bay Naval Base was chosen. It represented a legal black hole. It was not part of the constitutional homeland, the Bush administration argued, or subject to the same legal standards that might be obtained within that homeland. Detainees could therefore be subjected to any legal regime the authorities decided to implement.

Then, following the 2011 raid of Osama bin Laden’s compound, poll research discovered an increase in American’s who believed that “torture of our foreign enemies should be carried out and is deemed “appropriate.” The problem, who and how do you define a “foreign enemy?” When many people perceive blacks, women, homosexuals, immigrants, transgender, the mentally ill, and countless others as “the other,” the “enemy” may very well become any person who represents difference.

Still other interpretations of Nietzsche’s work, particularly those who value Nietzsche’s early essay “On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense,” argue that Nietzsche believes the very idea of “truth” to be a lie. Truth is not an elephant that we must look at from multiple perspectives under this view. Rather, truth is simply the name given to the point of view of the people who have the power to enforce their point of view. The only reality is the will to power, the truth, like morality, is just another fig leaf placed on top of this reality.

Herein lies the compound paradox: whose “truth” do you believe to be closer to the actual events that have transpired in history and whose are farther away from deception? That is to say, “Are the victims who claim to be electronically stalked with electronic and psychotronic torture in their environment really “mentally ill” or is this a reality someone is trying to impose onto reality, using a term I arrived at, through defunding social capital by implementing torture? (See Pierre Bourdieu’s 1991 work entitled “Language and Symbolic Power”).

Advancing Technology: Replacing Nietzsche’s concept of Christianity with a twenty-first-century enemy

An aspect of Nietzsche’s work was the concept of “Christianity as a life-denying force.” Here, we might make the leap to “advancing technology as a life-denying force” in that, similar to how Nietzsche viewed Christianity as fundamentally opposed to life, so too advancing technology in the control of others offers those in the position of political power the ability to deny life itself. In fact, many medical doctors control much of this power. Much like how the mechanisms of control operated during the Medieval Inquisition, efforts that were driven by political rivalries and personal agendas, the deployment of any device of surveillance in a program to advance state authority and establish power operate in much the same way. And this is most definitely what we observe when we observe the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture in defunding of someone’s mental capacity (their very social capital) through torture.

In Nietzsche’s doctrine, one aspect of the will to power is that the will to power is a psychological insight: our fundamental drive is for power as realized in independence and dominance. This will is stronger than the will to survive, as martyrs willingly die for a cause if they feel that associating themselves with that cause gives them greater power, and it is stronger than the will to sex, as monks willingly renounce sex for the sake of a greater cause. While the will to power can manifest itself through violence and physical dominance, Nietzsche is more interested in the sublimated will to power, where people turn their will to power inward and pursue self-mastery rather than mastery over others. An Indian mystic, for instance, who submits himself to all sorts of physical deprivation gains profound self-control and spiritual depth, representing a more refined form of power than the power gained by the conquering barbarian.

On a deeper level, the will to power explains the fundamental, changing aspect of reality. According to Nietzsche, everything is in flux, and there is no such thing as a fixed being. Matter is always moving and changing, as are ideas, knowledge, truth, and everything else. The will to power is the fundamental engine of this change. For Nietzsche, the universe is primarily made up, not of facts or things, but rather of wills. The idea of the human soul or ego is just a grammatical fiction, according to Nietzsche. What we call “I” is really a chaotic jumble of competing wills, constantly struggling to overcome one another. Because change is a fundamental aspect of life, Nietzsche considers any point of view that takes reality to be fixed and objective, be it religious, scientific, or philosophical, as life-denying. A truly life-affirming philosophy embraces change and recognizes in the will to power that change is the only constant in the world.

The major question becomes, “Who has any right to subjugate and force change on others as seen in the torture of Mohammed Al-Qahtani at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, and the many electronically targeted and psychotronically tortured Americans living as civilians within the borders of the United States of America?” (If you do not know who Mohammed Al-Qahtani is, look him up! If you possess even half a conscience, you may be appalled at what you discover.)

Historians At The Desk

Henry Charles Lea was one of the most accomplished American historians of his era, and at his desk, in his library, he produced three weighty tomes on the Medieval Inquisition and four volumes of equal heft on the Spanish Inquisition. The achievement is all the more remarkable given that Lea had almost nothing to work with: the relevant research materials simply weren’t available in America during this time. His family was educated and wealthy which worked to his advantage. He was schooled at home by private tutors and when he came of age, he used his wealth to form a very impressive library. He wrote to booksellers across Europe, acquiring what he needed. Libraries and monasteries lent him original manuscripts. If manuscripts were for sale, he purchased them. If they could not be borrowed or purchased, he had them copied. It was a good time to be a book buyer at this time because the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars had upended the nobility and the Church. As a result, countless libraries had been dumped on the market.

Henry Charles Lea (September 19, 1825 — October 24, 1909) saw the Inquisition’s work less as a purely religious undertaking than as an effort driven by political rivalries and personal agendas, as would be true of any program advanced by any state power or entity establishing their own ruling authority, state or federally endowed or not.

The perspectives of Phillipp van Limborch (Historia Inquisitionis) and John Locke (Letters of Toleration), who were both close friends, viewed the Inquisition as one of the most imposing counterexamples to the state of affairs an enlightened polity should embrace.”

Just as Juan Antonio Llorente questioned in his published monumental work, Histoire Critique de l’Inquisition d’Espagne, the following inquiries:

“How did the Inquisition’s bureaucracy actually work? What happened on a local level, on the ground, when decisions were sent forth from the tribunal in Madrid? What role did the Inquisition come to play in politics? What long-term effects did it have on Spain’s national life — for instance, on its intellectual vitality and its economic development?”

So too, one might ask the same questions of the phenomenon known as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. That is, “How do they operate on a local level, on the ground, when decisions are being sent forth from the originating pulpit of power?” Even though a state political authority may or may not be involved in its deployment, the implications are definitely political and more likely to be a self-establishing sovereignty.

The Phenomenon Known as Torture Creep

Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and others of Obama’s staff in the Situation Room in May 2011 when Osama bin Laden’s compound was raided.

The purpose of the article is to bear light on the historical concept of “sanitation” and/or “gentrification.” That is to say, a cleansing of an area through expulsion or extinction and the phenomenon known as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assault and psychotronic torture. It also discusses the phenomenon known as “torture creep” a phenomenon that manifested following the aftermath of killing Osama bin Laden in May 2011. In addition, the influence of cultural sociology and the creating of “consent” in BDSM legal proceedings is also discussed and how informal rules that structure consent are unique to family relationships as well as its purpose to bring light to the aspect that certain area hospitals have been involved in the deployment of the phenomenon known as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture.

“The five stages of dying, posited by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross run from denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. We pass through similar stages when it comes to dealing with historical trauma — and then move on to new stages beyond. One of them might be called sanitation, or perhaps gentrificationWhatever the word, it reflects the fact that eventually history is safely caged and tamed. Any visitor to Antietam or Gettysburg or the Somme has seen how the bloodiest battlefields become landscapes of verdant serenity, primped with tasteful monuments. Romans walk their dogs among the umbrella pines that edge the quiet precincts of the Circus Maximus, where countless Christians went to their deaths.

Sanitation has taken hold in the old Jewish Quarter of Cordoba — still called the Juderia, despite the fact that Jews have been largely gone for five hundred years. Wandering through the narrow, winding streets, a few blocks from the Mezquita, one can’t help recalling peter De Vries’ remark about how so many places are named for what had to be removed in order to make them what they are “(Murphy, 2012, pg. 85).

And it is here I’d like to add a personal comment, and we wonder what the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture is all about?! Helene Fuld Hospital, Trenton Campus, Psychiatric Holding Area, in New Jersey and their use of electronic targeting and psychotronic torture! The seducers of human conscience! which may turn out to be either corrupt employees of the hospital itself! Or perhaps it is the “gods” of industry (specifically research and development employees) who have been instructed by their superiors to “turn water into wine or to turn shit into gold so we can make some money for ourselves in an economic niche! A miracle of rare device, in the advancement of new modern technologies in the name of science, and finding new markets for which to deploy them! It’s important to consider the work of Michel Foucault, The History of Sexuality which was formerly titled “The Will to Knowledge”, and the role of the psychiatric hospital in correcting behavior and returning patients to their families in “much better condition” than when they left (Foucault, 1978, 1995). Remember Antonio Egas Montiz’s frontal lobotomy?

Defining Torture Creep

The concept of Torture Creep is attributed to Bush-era politics in response to 9/11 and the United States’ War on Terror. In an October 2007 Rasmussen poll, 27 percent of Americans surveyed said the United States should torture prisoners captured in the fight against terrorism, while 53 percent said it should not. In a 2012 YouGov poll, 41 percent said they would be willing to use torture — a gain of 14 points — while 34 percent would not, a decline of 19 points (Zegart, 2012). Hence the term “torture creep.” It is also important to note that white, far-right, liberal Republicans were suffering their own crisis of white masculinity during this time, holding public gatherings using the “N” word and touting pictures of Barrack Obama as an indigenous tribal “witch doctor.” The respondents in the 2012 pool were more pro-waterboarding, pro-threatening prisoners with dogs, pro-religious humiliation, and pro-forcing prisoners to remain naked and chained in uncomfortable positions in cold rooms. In fact, many of the polls prior to 2012 that were referenced by Amy Zegart in her article “Torture Creep” reported fewer people likely to use torture, recognizing it as wrong, than people who were willing to use and were okay with it. Even enthusiasm for assassinations of foreign heads of state has risen despite the fact our government has banned assassinating foreign leaders since 1976.

Although unlike Zegart’s opinion for the possible reason for the increase in the public’s desire for torture which she claims is because it is just “easier to support controversial policies after the controversy fades.” I believe torture creep is rooted in a more archaic and deep-seated place in the human psyche. That desire to annihilate and dehumanize those whom we fear most. The roots of sadism and the tendency to annihilate what seem like very real phantoms lurking in the shadows of our fears. There is no want for historical data for this fact involving “mental illness” and those placed in psychiatric hospitals.

We believe slavery has ended because there is no longer an industry for the slave trade. But yet everywhere we look today we see police brutality and the unnecessary killing of young black men and women by policing authorities. We see institutionalized forms of prejudice creeping into how young black women are treated in maternity wards. Are we to believe that violations of basic human rights no longer exist in the realm of psychiatry as well? A common narrative to the Phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking is that the individual is “mentally ill.” And are we to believe that because the human race no longer sees a purpose for institutionalized torture and laws that govern and inform it, the like and size of previous religious Inquisitions, that these acts of brutal torture no longer exist because it’s been “abolished” and it is no longer visible to the naked eye. This form of subtle torture is part of what is known as The Lesser Tradition of specialized tortures which will be discussed shortly.

“The legal scholar Alan Dershowitz, though not a proponent of torture, has argued that democratic governments should make provision for the issuance of official “torture warrants” that would sanction the use of torture in extreme cases — his argument being that torture is employed clandestinely in any event, and it would be better to subject it to legal regulation. “The major downside of any warrant procedure,” Dershowitz writes, “would be its legitimation of a horrible practice, but in my view, it is better to legitimate and control a specific practice that will occur, than to legitimate general practice of tolerating extra-legal actions, so long as they operate under the table of scrutiny and beneath the radar screen of accountability (Murphy, 2012, pg. 87).”

My personal comment is this. That it would never be accepted by conspicuous courts of law because legalized torture flies in the face of what American democracy stands for which is human decency and respect for basic personal rights. The legal proof that this would never be accepted by American legal democracy is the fact our courts do not recognize contracts of BDSM. “Torture warrants”, similar to BDSM, represent a violation of criminal battery laws. Important aspects for this study are the fact of criminal battery law and the site of the family are where people learn what modes of behavior are considered acceptable. “People on the margins of the law, or “in the shadow of the law” as it is commonly put by socio-legal scholars (Macaulay 1963; Mnookin and Kornhauser 1979), are important for this study because this is primarily where people construct consent and develop rules and norms to structure and define their internal relationships (Weinberg, 2016, pg. 10). The tie that binds the three elements, at least for me, is psychiatric treatment, the family, and the psychiatric institution where it is implemented. But to return to my main point, there is a reason why military courts exist and are kept separate from civilian courts. The laws that apply to each are both very different. This is because both BDSM and “torture warrants” lie at the intersection of law and cultural sociology. “Torture warrants” seem to mimic the phenomenon of what is now known as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assault and psychotronic torture. What are the function of both informal laws and formal codesThe function of law is to shape human behavior. The paucity of work done on the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking and electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture is enough to give voice to the informal nature of its rules, rules that operate in the “shadows of the law.”

Let us consider further Cullen Murphy’s thoughts on legitimized forms of torture historically instituted during Medieval Inquisitions:

“The Spanish Inquisition is not what Dershowitz had in mind, but it, too, sought to legitimate and control a regime of torture, just as the Medieval Inquisition had. Torture might once have been limited to crimina excepta — crimes of the utmost gravity — but over time that category was broadened, and the threshold of permissibility was lowered. The phenomenon is sometimes known as torture creep. It comes in various forms. In the aftermath of killing Osama bin Laden, in May 2011, a number of commentators asserted that the Al Qaeda leader’s hideout had been discovered owing mainly to information gleaned from torture — demonstrating just how worthwhile torture can be. The claim was not true, but the fact that it was made illustrates a moral slide: where once torture was seen as justified only by some “ticking time bomb” scenario, now it was seen as justifiable for obtaining useful intelligence of a lesser kind.

Inquisitors resorted to torture for one main purpose: to elicit statements by the victim, about himself or people he knew, that they could legally regard as “the truth.” Torture was not employed officially as punishment, though it would be impossible to rule out such a motivation — in the hearts of many who wield it, torture has always entailed some measure of punishment. Officially, it was a tool of jurisprudence — an essential element in the hierarchy of proof. Because the gravest of crimes brought a penalty of death, it was essential to have an ironclad assurance of guilty — and no assurance was more persuasive then a confession.

Darius Rejali, the most prominent modern specialist on torture, had divided certain torture techniques into what he calls the Greater and Lesser Stress Traditions. The Greater Tradition consists of methods that are applied with a few limitations and that leave victims with “permanent, visible injuries.” The Lesser Tradition comes with certain rules and leaves “fewer tell-tale marks.” When modern democracies resort to torture, as they do, their tendency has been toward the Lesser Tradition — easier to hide, easier to explain away (Murphy, 2012, pg. 87–88).”

And it is here we can connect the dots from the Lesser Stress Traditions of torture and the phenomenon we know today as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture. When authoritarian regimes have no such concerns as “the law” because they operate in its shadows. The Lesser Stress Traditions of torture can operate in an environment in which secular authorities are unaware of its presence and it can treat “subjects” as they please, and where legal authority may be at a disadvantage in understanding what this invisible subject actually represents which is compromised freedom. Some of the methods employed could by their nature do irreparable damage. Cullen Murphy writes, “The moral may be that the regulation of torture never really works — it just points the practitioners in new directions. As Rejali writes, ‘When we watch interrogators, interrogators get sneaky.’”

In the end, the informal rules that govern prescribed torture are part of a social order that orders relationships. It is inherent in its culture and informal social rules like formal laws structure human behavior by enabling or constraining social action and by enabling cohesion of a collective (Durkheim, [1893], 1997; Giddens, 1984). We could certainly use this theory to explain why torture goes hand-in-hand with militarized cultures.

Are You A Targeted Individual? Here Is Another Piece of Advice To Consider

The above illustration depicts a HISTORY of PAST behaviors not necessarily CURRENT behaviors as a previous victim of rape, date rape, domestic violence, past drug abuse, and a criminal complaintant filed as a violent crime. The most atrocious online behavior I have encountered, talking about my experiences, was the prevelence of victim blaming. That idea that some how I deserved the treatment I was receiving because of my past drug history with no consideration to my current situation.

The latest issue of Violence and Gender published an article entitled “Feminicide Violence Before During the COVID-19 Health Emergency.” This article includes a chart for the Dependent Variable and the corresponding Independent Variables related to attempted acts of feminicide as well as feminicide itself (see below).

The same type of illustration can be made for each specific case of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeting assaults and psychotronic torture. Pictured ABOVE is a ROUGH DRAFT illustration depicting some of my variables which I believe contributed to my gang stalking. I need to work on getting it type-printed using an Excel flow chart graph.

If your a victim of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic assaults suffering psychotronic torture, you might want to compile a similar chart listing all possible independent variables that may have contributed to your gang stalking.

A major glaring red flag for me is Capital Health Systems at Fuld, Psychiatric Holding Area, Trenton, New Jersey. A major trauma hospital that serves the surrounding communities as well as low-income, welfare recipients through social service programs.

It is important to note my electronic targeting assaults began in 2009 as electronic psychotronic torture. Well after I had made changes to my behavior by removing myself from the surrounding drug culture.

Considerations For Targeted Individual Populations Suffering Domestic Violence and Intimate Partner Abuse in Tandem with their Targeting

The paranoid fear in many men who are batterers and perpetrators of domestic violence and intimate partner abuse can cause them to suffer delusions. Because of this, they may believe their wives, girlfriends, or intimate partners are “whores” and “prostitutes” who are having sex with other men. Or other outlandish beliefs that are delusions and hallucinations emanating out of a sick and twisted mind.

The great spectacle known as the sermo generalis, were public rituals of punishment and humiliation designed to shame the convicted (Murphy, 2012). Punishments like the wearing of a Scarlet Letter (“A” for adultery) as written in the novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne or being locked up in a public stockade with a display telling the public what wrongs you had committed. For Unlawful Cardinal Knowledge. Progroms of conversions had begun long before any centralized, official inquisition was put into place. Although this behavior has been an ever-present theme for humanity, it has thereby transformed itself from one mode to the next. We see one of the most visible harbingers for change during the rise of Inquisitions during the 15th century.

The Inquisition would last some 350 years, and would not begin to wane until the early part of the 1820s. It would survive in Spain until 1834 where a royal decree would abolish them forever (Murphy, 2012). Yet, following the end of the Inquisitions, humanity would experience various extermination campaigns of targeted populations during the slavery era of antebellum in the United States, whereupon winning freedom for black slaves many slave owners exacted their authority to punish their possession by executing their slaves rather than granting them their freedom. Then, early in the 20th century, various medical doctors were allowed to conduct human experimentation on populations of people deemed “non-valuable”; prison inmates (Cina & Perper, 2010). Following all this, one of the grandest on a global scale, the German Jewish Holocaust of World War II in which German Jewish were systematically executed in gas chambers and used as human science experiments (Santner, 1990).

The last notable action of the Holy Roman Inquisition occurred in 1858 in Bologna, Papal States, when agents of the Inquisition removed a 6-year-old Jewish boy, Edgardo Mortara, from his family. When the Roman Catholic authorities learned the young boy was secretly baptized by his nursemaid who feared the young boy’s fate upon the boy’s falling ill and possibly dying from disease. Church law made it illegal for a Catholic to be raised by Jews. So, Pope Pius IX took the boy in and raised him as a Roman Catholic. The boy would go on to become a priest (Murphy, 2012).

Far from an actual execution, one might surmise the removal of the child was more of an act geared toward the extermination of the young boy’s DNA. For who’s to say if the young boy, if allowed to live with his Jewish family, might not have gone on to marry and produce children of his own. Thereby, propagating the seed of his own family lineage.

It was not only those who were accused of “Judaizing”, converting back to their former Jewish faith, a variety of specific transgressions were punishable by Inquisition including solicitations of sex by clergy in the confessional. The connection here I would like to make to my specific targeting as a woman and the delusion belief held by some men of my being (identity) as “nothing more than a whore” or in other words, “prostitute” and the reason behind my electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture would be to target me with illness and harassment because of some expressed mal behavior (Van Brunt, Murphy, Pescara-Kovach, Crance, 2019). This plays into rape myths and the notion “that somehow the woman was asking to be raped” (Kosloski, Diamond-Welch & Mann, 2018).

Once we consider the purpose of Inquisitions as a program of persecution and forcible conversion to undermined a community’s identity, as is the case with the Targeted Individual population, and that despite “converting to the wishes of their persecutors,” like many new Jews who had accepted Christianity were regarded by many Old Christians with suspicion as “Judaizers” or “Crypto-Jews” who secretly held fast to their former beliefs, we can come to an understanding that Inquisitions have never really left us. That it has, in fact, only transformed themselves a new.

And if we consider that the purpose of programs of persecution and forcible conversion undermined the right of the individual to their possessed identity, just as the Jews who had been forced to accepted Christianity, despite the turning of their will to the wishes of their persecutors — New Christians — were regarded by many Old Christians with suspicion as “Judaizers” or “crypto-Jews” who secretly held fast to their faith.”

“Does this not sound eerily similar to the plight of the Targeted Individual suffering electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture? That perhaps some type of “betrayal had in fact occurred” in the Targeted Individual’s life and that this “breach of contract” was in fact some informal, social, unspoken, unbreakable bond?

The phenomenon of programs of persecution and forcible conversion to undermine individual and community identity was built on former practices, policies, and protocols that targeted various outcast populations. It depends on the same old mechanisms; established cultural myths that exact punishment through law. Albeit, governed by a quasi-militarized, philanthropic law. Its protege of the Spanish Inquisition, censors wielding inkpots to blot out entire identities in campaigns targeting vulnerable and powerless populations (Mayer, 2016). It’s the extermination of the “undesirables” in a campaign by those who espouse a form of superior supremacy over “Other”. It’s the racially coded rhetoric wielded by the far-right radical liberal Republican during the Obama administration in what would appear as a manifestation of a mass crisis of white Republican masculinity (Mayer, 2016). It’s the usurpation of someone’s financial rights through criminal grand theft or similar to the denial of expressive sexual identity by rendering the libido of the individual; silento. (Walker, 1998; Barna, 2021). Or the silencing by Betty Broderick of her ex-husband and new wife through homicide. An absolute and altogether denial of civil rights. The only difference is that adultery is no longer considered a criminal offense. If sexual deviance still had been considered a crime, we would require more houses to pen in immoral sexual behaviors than there would be actual places to build homes. Yes, Bill Clinton was impeached but was he ever incarcerated for “not having sex with that girl”?

“Because I am a woman, it’s hard for me to believe that my Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture isn’t about my sex.”

We need to consider the connection of an outside influence (by-proxy) operating in the context of the abuse in cases of Targeted Individual populations suffering electronic physical assaults and psychotronic torture in tandem with domestic violence (Mendoza, Diaz & Carbajal, 2021).

As a victim of domestic violence, it’s hard for me to believe that my family is solely responsible for my individual targeting. And this provides the actual perpetrator of the targeted assaults and torture a convenient place to hide because this is a repeated vocal perspective on the part of many victims of domestic violence and intimate partner violence. This leads me to believe that the perpetrator of the actual orchestrator of my targeting maybe someone well versed in criminal investigations and police procedures. If he/she is, this fact would be well known to them and it would give them an excellent opportunity to manipulate and exploit a domestic violence/intimate partner case as well as hide his role in the crime.

How Bureaucratic Institutions Contribute to the Uniform Deployment of Targeting and Dehumanizing Behaviors

Historical records from the “Archivio della Congregazione per la Dottrina della Fede” at the Vatican.

“No one talks: silentio is the explicit rule.” In the Inquisition archive, officially titled “Archivio della Congregazione per la Dottrina della Fede,” this is one of the requirements of being an occupant of the archive. The archive records preserve the mainly grim record of lives disrupted and sometimes summarily put to an end, of ideas called into question and often suppressed, of voices silenced, temporarily or forever, of blind bureaucratic inertia harnessed to moral certainty and to Earthy and Spiritual power. The similarity between archaic Inquisitions of the Church and the high-profile media coverage of egregious wrongs done by political leaders, as well as others residing on Capitol Hill, Hollywood, and other high profile positions, may know all too well what the phrase, “Let the Inquisition Begin” or “Let the Witch Hunt Commence” truly means. Who can forget the 2016 election scandal and the entire four years that followed Trump’s presidential administrative behavior?

The grim reports of the Inquisition and the phenomenon of the Targeted Individual in what has been categorized as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture also convey a record of lives disrupted and sometimes summarily brought to an end, their voices silenced, temporarily or forever. The Inquisition, as is the phenomenon of the Targeted Individual, is an action taken in the belief of masquerading “virtue” but somehow seems to go far beyond what that word implies. For what is any archive or historical repository but some sliver of what civilization has wrought on others; for good or bad?

It was the Roman Inquisition that put Galileo on trial for his arguments about the heavens. This inquisitorial spark, with its rhythms and procedures and all its insanities, will be recognizable to anyone with experience with large bureaucratic institutions. Men mad to be normal who invent technologies, policies, and protocols to control, exploit, change (treat) and kill their creditable threats in a manifestation of a delusion about another’s perceived or fantasized identity.

The Inquisition can be seen as something greater and more insidious, as is the phenomenon of the Targeted Individual. It can be viewed as a sustained effort to pursue a single institution or promote a single coalition’s success. That the ills of the world have been spawned by the Masons, the Illuminati, the Trilateral Commission, Opus Dei, Skull and Bones, or Goldman Sachs represents the conspiracy-theory view of human history and an easy way out. If only the source of evil were so simple to identify, so easy to confront. Can you see that the Inquisition was enabled by some of the broader forces that brought the modern world into existence? Cullen Murphy said this fact makes the inquisitions of various kinds “a recurring and inescapable feature of modern life.” I say inquisitions, witch hunts, and the phenomenon of the targeted individual are being played out as an infinite game in game theory of NON-COOPERATIVE gaming based in competition because advancing technology promotes and advances the game (constantly advancing high-technology, and weapons as a business is an infinite game). However, the game between the players/coalitions are finite and with respect to Inquisitions and the Targeted Individual, will come to an end until one side commits to the will of the dominant coalition, dies, or the game ends in a draw. Business is an infinite game and the industrialized military complex is a business. As I have said, this means the business of advancing technologies and new weapons are also infinite games. Inquisitions and persecutions, as do targeting of certain groups, advance hand-in-hand with civilization itself.

Why is it, at any given time throughout the historical archive, intolerance, hatred, and suspicion of “the other,” often based on ethnic, racial, gender, sexual orientation, and religion have always been with us? It is because its very purpose is “to promote a change in those being tortured.” Through warrant, an inquisition’s purpose was to enforce and discipline among its members of the Church (not outside of it). The purpose was to correct the behavior of the individuals who had “fallen into error who had in some way loosened the bonds that previously bound them to another.” Looked at in this way, it very closely resembles the phenomenon of the targeted individual suffering group (gang) stalking attacks, electronic targeting and psychotronic torture. Much like the bureaucratic institutions that guided the various inquisitions throughout history. In like vein, gang stalking utilizes a centralized command exercising their “authority” outside the limits of civil and criminal law. The highly localized efforts of conducting inquisitions and interrogations of the Dark Ages have echoed and rippled its way to the White House and the Justice Department. Institutions that are organized and governed by formal legal protocols and procedures. So too, do interrogations and inquisitions of organized crime and organized contract stalking. In a repetition of history, the targeted individual has become like the Cathars and what the Cathars represented to the Dominican Catholic. Or similar to what a Protestant meant to a Jesuit. The difference between Dominican Catholic and Jesuit is this. Have you ever met a Cathar?

The phenomenon of the targeted individual is like any other inquisitorial process that is governed by an “arm of the law” or monarch. But whose idea of “justice” is being served?

Tomas de Torquemada, a Dominican monk, has become synonymous with the inquisition as a whole. His expulsion of unconverted Jews from his kingdom in 1492 cleansed Spain of religious contaminants during the Spanish Inquisition. I believe this is what Targeted Individuals represent to their “Inquisitors”; that is, a contamination or toxin that needs to be expelled from the environment.

What led to the conclusion of Inquisitions? Some may say “a shortage of combustible material” as many were burned alive. But I say it never really ended. It has only transformed itself. The players are different but the GAME is still the same. It’s a NON-COOPERATIVE GAME based in competition where a creditable threat sparks the formation of a COALITION. A COALITION that has supreme value and that value has been endowed upon the COALITION’S MEMBERS who are clearly in a superior playing position on the field and where the superior coalition is absolutely always right.

It’s hard for me to respect the Catholic Church where no fewer than three grand inquisitors went on to become Pope. The main focus of Roman Inquisitions wasn’t just to eradicate “religious heretics” it was homosexuals, people accused of witchcraft, and certain kinds of quirky or annoying free thinkers and gadflies who might be considered today as “public intellectuals.” I think the inquisitorial need to torture and abuse may have very well been due to the fact that a bunch of very powerful, angry men were denied coitus which may have very well cured them of their affliction. This is certainly the reason behind why some men choose female targets for “sex grooming” (Van Brunt, Murphy, Pescara-Kovach, & Crance, 2019). Women often become the targeted objects of men’s disgruntled hatred during times of “non-selection” in mating. These men, as a general observation, possess some type of personality disorder like narcissistic personality disorder or schizoid personality disorder.

So, in theory, just like how inquisitions could rely on a certain amount of revenue confiscated from the individuals they targeted, similar to how the Germans during the Jewish Holocaust of World War II usurped money, property, and valuable objects from their Jewish targets to pay off their war debts, so too, the Targeted Individual suffers similar types of confiscations. Whether it be money, bodily usurpations such as rape, or other forms of theft of property. However, the most prominent one being the confiscation of identity, which may be followed by an unwilling confiscation of property. But what gives an Inquisition or persecution the staying power it needs to operate? It is given the power to operate for any sustained length of time by giving it an institutional life. This means a form of bureaucratic, legislative life, as seen in medical insurance and healthcare, either paid for by insurance or out of pocket. This is another type of business bureaucracy and another type of infinite game. Once institutionalized forms of power and governance became standard operating procedures, we see the emergence of persecutions known as inquisitions. They are not confined to religion. They are political as well. The targets can be large or small. An inquisitorial impulse can quietly take root in the very system of government and civil society that orders our lives; hospitals, physicians’ offices, dentists’ offices, etc. In fact, research has uncovered the fact that in business certain types of dehumanization do in fact occur (Haslam, 2006). Such types of dehumanization are observed in failing to provide people of color adequate healthcare as well as traits consistent with the Dark Triad and subclinical sadism in people possessing business degrees in general (Lyons & Jonason 2015; Krick, Tresp, Vatter, Ludwig, Wihlenda & Rettenberger, 2016; Johnson, Plouffe & Saklofske, 2019).

Cullen Murphy has outlined the following tools need for “Inquisitions and Persecutions”:

“The tools are these: There needs to be a system of law, and the means to administer it with a certain amount of uniformity, there needs to be a well-defined process for conducting interrogations and extracting information. Procedures must exist for record-keeping, and for retrieving information after records have been compiled and stored. An administrative mechanism — a bureaucracy — is required, along with a cadre of trained people to staff it. There must be an ability to send messages across significant distances — and also some capacity to restrict the communications of others. And there must be a source of power, to ensure enforcement.

The source of power can vary. From the outset, the religious aims of the Inquisition were enmeshed with the might of secular rulers. The relationship was sometimes symbiotic and always complicated, and it changed over time. With the Medieval Inquisition, the Church sought to leverage secular power to achieve its ends (though the secular authorities had their own purpose in mind). The Spanish Inquisition threw this arrangement into reverse: the crown made the inquisition an official component of the Spanish state. During the Roman Inquisition, the tribunal was controlled directly by the papacy, and within its own territories, church and state were the exact same thing. (Outside the Papal States, the Inquisition operated on terms laid down by local governments.) The twentieth century would bring a new evolutionary stage: inquisitions that lay fully in the hands of the state and required no religious dimension at all.

And there is one more factor in the making of an Inquisition; the conviction that one is absolutely right. Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani, the prefect of the Holy Office through most of the 1960s, adopted as his motto the Latin phrase Semper idem — ‘Always the same.’”

We might conclude the phrase, Semper idem, as a rather perfect phrase for a game that seems to be an infinite game.

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

If you’re interested in what you can do if you are suffering from gang stalking and electronic targeted physical assaults, psychotronic torture you can jump to the heading “Want To Know What You Can Do? Here is What You Can Do.”

Since I write about the phenomenon known as Group (Gang) Stalking, electronic targeted physical assaults, and psychotronic torture all of which are content narrative to the phenomenon, people ask me, “But what can I do to stop it?”

When first asked, my initial thought was, “I’m not really sure.” As my investigation expanded, I realized that what has been occurring between persons suffering the phenomenon of the Targeted Individual (TI) is that these persons are engaged in a GAME with an unsub or unknown assailant. When viewed this way, the person has to understand that it is a game they are expected to play. And whether or not they want to play the game is irrelevant. Because the purpose of the game is to elicit a response, more accurately put, force a change in the person. So, my response to the question “What can I do to stop it?” has changed from an, “I’m not really sure” to a, “Have you ever studied game theory?”

When we view the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL, we have to understand that game theory in strategic operations and warfare is what is needed to finish the game. Since most people don’t study game theory, they may not understand what their choices are, and understand what the possible outcomes to their choices might be in choosing a DOMINANT STRATEGY versus a MIXED STRATEGY. dominant strategy is the course of action taken by a player that results in the highest payoff for a player regardless of what the other player does. A mixed strategy incorporates the possibility of all the choices in a game like (Rock-Paper-Scissors) and where game players pick their best personal strategy. It also helps if you know who your opponent is, and for this reason, it requires a bit of knowledge in war room techniques as well. Similar to how the FBI engages itself while hunting down an active serial killer whose identity is unknown. The GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL seems to be a non-cooperative game rooted in competition. This means, it is a game where there is competition between individual players, in which alliance can only operate through credible threats and where value is ascertained in the coalition itself. The key distinguishing feature of a non-cooperative game is the absence of external authority to establish rules for enforcing cooperative behavior. It makes the most sense then THE GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL IS, in fact, A NON-COOPERATIVE GAME. We have supportive evidence of this because there are no known laws establishing sexually promiscuous (“whore”/ “prostitute”), alcoholic, marijuana smoker, or some other type of marginalized group such an intravenous drug user an illegal social status condemnable by court-enforced punishments.

Police officers often “partner up” in protecting each other’s back in cooperative game theory. I have written a letter to an ex-FBI profiler, I have gone to my local police department, I have contacted the FBI by submitting a complaint online. I also wrote a letter to the Department of Justice (not really sure what good THAT has done) as well as wrote a letter to my state department’s division of Law and Public Safety. As a person who is currently an electronic target (TI) and a person who has formerly suffered from addiction issues, the purpose of the game seems to be to elicit a change in the person. This most likely explains the purpose as belonging to a type of non-cooperative game theory. If you consider John Nash’s theory, Nash’s Equilibrium, which is a decision-making theorem that states “a player can achieve the desired outcome by not deviating from their initial strategy.” How do you get a game player to make a change in their choice when there is no incentive for him to do so? And the answer to that question is by making life so unbearably painful he has no other choice but to make a change. This establishes it as a non-cooperative game rooted in competition.

Centuries before John Nash even wrote about his theorem, the ancient writers of the Bible were well informed on game theory. As comparative literature to the recorded research regarding the phenomenon (Sheridan, James & Roth, 2020) as well as the Book of Job, we can illustrate how “the Satan”, provoking God regarding his faithful follower Job, by saying to him; “Have not you yourself put up a hedge about him and about his house and about everything that he has all around? The work of his hands you have blessed, and his livestock itself has spread abroad in the earth. But, for a change, thrust out your hand, please, and touch everything he has [and see] whether he will not curse you to your very face [Job 1:10–11].” So, what does God do, he allows Satan to torment Job just to see whether or not Job’s “free-will” might be changed. Job is transformed through the enforcement of purposeful loss of property and children by Satan as well as made to sacrifice through physical pain and suffering (torture) his health and wealth, reduced to a shadow of his former self for the purpose of change. Kohut would call this creative aspect of Satan/God’s narcissistic design, a necessary attribute for possible growth and development away from their destructive psychic forces, but it is also this same creativity that sets up for us narcissism’s antithetical aspects which is its very infantile destructiveness. As a result, Job becomes angry at God for punishing him for no good reason. Similar to how the TI feels about being mandated to sacrifice and lose through the physical pain of torture in the absence of any good reason. Of course, this theory makes the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL highly unorthodox, inhumane, and illegal. And as I said before, is a non-cooperative game that is based in individual competition between players in game theory.

The choices for the targeted individual, since he cannot directly stop the invisible electronic assaults, maybe a number of different choices. One, he can temporarily or permanently change his physical location by leaving his property/environment. Say for instance, by visiting a friend or selling his property. If he is using substances like alcohol or street drugs, which people may certainly think he is “crazy” and “delusional” and must certainly be “hallucinating” these “experiences” because of the substances. In this case, he may want to stop using drugs or alcohol as a dominant strategy which is the course of action taken by a player that results in the highest payoff for a player regardless of what the other players are doing in the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL. Perhaps the TI is sexually promiscuous. As a woman, I have on many occasions heard people claim me to be a “whore” or “prostitute.” In this case, the dominant strategy of choice would be in choosing the behavior of chastityAnd these are all possibilities that are antithetical to the basic respect of persons as well as antithetical to US Constitutional Law but still available to us in the study of game theory. Whatever the reason, the purpose of the game for the Targeted Individual is to prompt or move the TI to make an alternate behavioral choice(s). It is up to the TI to decide through intuitive deduction what those alternate choices may be, and what they mean for the player in moving towards better “constructive social action” in a movement toward a “cooperative game.” Or supposedly their “best social selves” because in cooperative game theory there is no competition (sexually, individually, aesthetically, or otherwise), only a coalition of players working toward the same goal which establishes the value of the coalition. This is why I believe one of the purposes of electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture is a form of “social grooming.”

There also seems to be a connection to the psychoanalytic theories of Heinz Kohut in his “Forms and Transformations in Narcissism.” Kohut recognized the personality attribute of creativity was necessary in order for highly narcissistic persons to transform their problematic narcissism (antisocial behaviors) into more constructive and socially acceptable modes of action. People addicted to drugs and alcohol are believed to suffer from a form of narcissism that is socially destructive and antisocial. Highly promiscuous women may also be suffering from a form of destructive narcissism, but is it illegal? Are there legal codes that mandate the enforcement of all players to engage in and play specific cooperative games? Similar to how such occupations, say, as public figure and detectives are expected to work. Also, people suffering from various types of personality disorders, as outlined in the DSM-V, suffer disproportionately high levels of narcissism. This is to say, people suffering from addiction are not necessarily suffering from a personality disorder, and people suffering from a personality disorder are necessarily suffering from addiction (drugs/alcohol). But are either illegal? So, this line of philosophical debate, if we believe what is being presented to us in this argument, reveals treatment to an otherwise marginalized population (the Targeted Individual), and not necessarily psychiatric treatment but treatment nonetheless, that is antithetical to the basic respect of persons and violations of their basic civil rights of individuals.

It would most definitely appear that “the Satan” is suffering from a form of narcissistic personality disorder, as is “God the Almighty”, in that he is envious of the fact that Job demonstrates an upright and blameless faith and commitment towards the Almighty. And “the Almighty” is envious of anyone who doesn’t solely worship him. So herein lies the paradox. Are the “Gods” (and I include “the Satan” as a God) that are carrying out the antagonistic assaults against the TI most likely in possession of a personality disorder? Probably so! Can they be treated for the difference they represent by playing the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL with them? Probably so, but that would only reduce the Targeted Individual in to the likes of an evil predator.

Similar to how strategic operations analyze the aspects of various military advancements, carefully considering outcomes, so too is this required of the TI. In other words, REFLECTION AND CAREFUL THOUGHT TO ONE’S ACTIONS. Which, incidentally, is also required in the recovery program of Alcoholics Anonymous. This is the GAME THAT THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL has been thrown in the middle of … a full-blown-out war in which an unknown assailant is split against them because of their difference. An in the game of War, knowledge of strategy and game theory is critical. And even then, the Targeted Individual is at a disadvantage because similar to how an active FBI investigation into an active serial killer, the identity of the killer cannot be easily ascertained. Sometimes, it is never known or discovered. Do you know how many unsolved murder cases there are in the crime vaults of police agencies throughout America? So, how is one to catch an invisible enemy?

NAPOLEON’S FATAL KNOT: Advancing technology is an infinite game much like Napoleon’s Fatal Knot of warfare

Is the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL a finite game or an infinite game? Business is an infinite game. A soccer game is a finite game. The answer is, it appears the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL may go on into infinity until the TI starts making the right choices like abandons his property, quits drugs and alcohol, establishes new friendships, or dies, whichever comes first. Since there have been no rules of engagement outlined in the GAME OF THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL by its controller and initiates, it is hard for the game player to know what the purpose of the game may be. But it would appear that the game is antithetical to healthy growth and development Heinz Kohut was talking about in his Forms and Transformation of NarcissismThat is to say, its purpose seems to suggest the type of oppression inflicted by people suffering narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).

WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU CAN DO? HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO

If you are being Group (Gang) Stalked don’t go anywhere alone. Keep a pen and paper handy at all times or an electronic notebook that you can easily access to record, times, dates, and detailed descriptions of people, places, and events. Have a witness who can corroboration your story and provide supportive evidence to what you are saying will help greatly.

If you are being electronically targeted in your home, move outside of your living space. Go into the backyard if you have one, sit on your front porch, take a walk, or get in your car and visit a friend. These are temporary fixes and may or may not work but they often can and do help. Some targeted individuals have made the radical choice of relocating. They sell their homes or give up their apartments and move to alternate housing. Some report this game choice has eliminated their suffering, and some have said it has not.

Contact your local police department and tell them what has been going on. If you are being harassed by a neighbor, let the authorities know. If you have gathered enough evidence or you have suffered some type of conflict or falling-out with a boyfriend, a relative, a co-worker, a business associate, or someone else make sure to tell the police about it. Group (Gang) Stalking and electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture may more likely be the result of some type of conflict within your social group rather than the result of random serial crime. In fact, if you report it to the police, they are most likely to ask you who your enemies are and if you know of anyone who would have incentive to harm you. I have personally read books written by forensic scientists and other authors, people who have worked in the field of forensic investigations. I have written these authors letters and received a response. Some may not respond but many of these individuals will respond because they are by nature helpers within their communities.

Call your local FBI field office for advice and guidance. Tell an FBI agent what you have been experiencing with regard to your stalking and electronic targeting. Ask for any helpful tips and inquire if the FBI agent was placed in your position, what would he/she do? And don’t be discouraged if they think you’re suffering from “mental illness.” It’s not the news everyone wants to hear, but it could be a possibility. If you want an objective investigation done, consider all the possibilities. The reason for this assumption regarding TI’s mental health is that some targeted individuals believe their electronic targeting is being done by space aliens from another planet. This does not bode well as “serious content narrative” nor does it make a valid excuse for consideration in investigating your case. Alternately, there have been recorded cases where local police officers are carrying out the stalking. No one is above the law and the FBI would certainly be interested in any misconduct occurring within local police agencies.

Call your state department’s division of Law and Public Safety or write them a letter. The electronic targeting that is occurring threatens the public welfare and as such deserves the respect and attention of local state authorities. It’s not too hard to make the connection between the Colonial Pipeline Hack (ransomware attack for the acquisition of monetary funds and/or property acquisition). Electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture are no different from these types of attacks. The only difference is that people’s bodies are being hacked into versus computer mainframes. Both have central processing units (brain/microchips).

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

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

A few years back, well maybe more than just a few years back, my dad was still alive. I was greeted at the lunch meat counter at my local Ewing Shop Rite by an old acquaintance. Will call him “Joe.” He was a former acquaintance from a former lifetime.

But in order for you to understand the whole picture of my story, I need to explain a few things. The time period this “meeting” occurred in was a few years after a sexual assault I reported to my local prosecutor’s office. I was sexually assaulted by a person I was familiar with and with whom I trusted. Following the tragic and sudden death of a close relative, I relapsed into drug use again after 5 years of sobriety. After this sudden death, I had begun to work out a lot to ward off the anxiety I felt about not being accepted by my family. As a result, I lost a lot of weight. One night, while out with one of my “friends,” my “friend” kept encouraging me to use again. I resisted attempts several times and, then, at the last moment, before leaving the bar, I gave in. This was the point of a trajectory.

When women are sexually assaulted while actively using drugs or alcohol as part of their lifestyle choice, they are usually recommended to a rehabilitation center. A few years after my sexual assault, I was forced into treatment. I then made a conscious decision to never use street drugs again and to distance myself as far as I could from the people I had previous associations with. That was in 2006. Although I would still imbibe alcohol a few times a week, I had come to a point in which I could actively imagine a better lifestyle for myself, free from my former associations.

Then, one day at the lunch meat counter, “Joe” tried to strike up a conversation with me. He asked me about a former boyfriend I had dated while I was between the ages of 19 and 20 years old. Let’s call him “Dean.” I was very cold and stand-offish to “Joe” because he had instructed “Dean” to push my head into a couch chair and hold it there one day while “Dean” and I were in the middle of an argument. Because of Joe’s guidance, Dean physically assaulted me. Because of this I always viewed “Joe” as a predator and most likely a psychopath. Who encourages a guy to physically assault a woman? Aren’t men supposed to respect a lady? I don’t believe anything that comes out of this man’s mouth. Joe was also with a woman at the lunch meat counter who had light reddish-blonde hair, and I believe light-colored eyes although my memory is a little faulty. Joe kept referencing this woman with glances for guidance from here. Joe apologized to me and said he truly didn’t have any memory of those specific events. He said he was “sorry” and asked if “I would forgive him?” I looked at him like he was a plague of locus come to destroy my crops. I said, “No.” I couldn’t care less if he could not remember those events from that day or not, and I told him in no uncertain terms, to basically, “FUCK OFF!” I told him I had been so far removed from my former lifestyle I used to entertain in my early adulthood that I didn’t want to know any of those people anymore. Recovery is about avoiding people, places, and things and also because I believed that probably half of my former associations were either psychopaths or sociopaths. People who had been ill-informed about the purpose of life, just like myself. The lifestyle I had led, active in the drug culture and bar scene, no longer plagued me simply because I actively chose recovery and now preferred a healthy lifestyle. I told him I was healthy and a practicing vegan and exercising daily. He then told me that he had “cancer” and was “dying” and “would I please forgive him.” This is the classic ploy of psychopath/sociopath. A “feel sorry for me” game card pulled from the trickster’s bag of tricks. They feign some type of “struggle” and try to win you to their side through sympathy. I’ve seen it a million times.

I believe Joe’s occupation is as a day contractor, although I’m not certain of this. But, in any event, why would I grant a liar forgiveness? I could feel the aversion toward Joe and Dean reverberate in every part of my body. I had allowed myself to be manipulated by men who were rotten and no good for me. Joe had asked if “I wanted to see Dean again.” I thought to myself, “What the fuck do you think?” I replied, “No.”

Honestly, I might have never come to this point in my recovery unless I had been raped which ended the trajectory events, a trajectory that started with my relapse in 2003. A distasteful and bitter pill to swallow; it truly was a revelation that unveiled itself before my eyes. It had somehow pulled all those dark puzzle pieces together to show me that what I had been doing was seriously wrong, even though I secretly knew this deep down inside of me. Such are the lies we tell ourselves. I believed that “my drug use was okay” because “everybody I knew was doing it.” I had even heard of some professional doctors who did it. And besides, these people were my “friends.” Certainly, a friend wouldn’t victimize me. Would they?

Of all the Creepypasta, this story could make one of the best urban legends although it is far from being a myth. The story where the girl who believes it’s okay to get drunk or use street drugs because everyone, she is with, is also doing it. And so, she must somehow be “safe” is far more common than you think. The myth that “surely these people would “respect” me because we commonly identify with one other” is never a certainty. In fact, when considering the nature of man, it is mostly not true. How could a bunch of people that don’t know how to respect themselves be informed about how to respect others? So, my cold and stand-offish stance towards Joe was a psychic defense elicited by a predator who had presented himself to me. I was trying to stay safe.

Shortly after this, my electronic and psychotronic targeting and torture began. I became known as a Targeted Individual. How does this play into the possible reasons for my targeting? Honestly, I don’t know, simply because there are so many other events to consider in my timeline as well.

The most important point I want to make regarding my electronic targeting, psychotronic torture, and group (gang) stalking is this. Over the platform Quora.com, when I discussed my experiences as a Targeted Individual. I was greeted with a response from a man, presumably white, who informed me “it’s because you can’t imagine something better for yourself.” What the fuck? Really? That’s the reason!? The reason I deserve to be tortured and punished!? This means the reason for my targeting is rooted in difference. It is rooted in the difference of identity. It is rooted in the things that divide us and not join us together. The targeting implies that I am not favored because I don’t belong to the right “social grouping.” This is an age-old phenomenon that has gone by many names throughout human history. Most noted for these horrors, based in difference of identity, were the Jewish and Christian holy wars from the Bible (Pagels, 1995), witch trials (Hill, 2002) and other religious inquisitions as well as the many genocides that have taken place over the ages (Santner, 1990). We could look to more modern events like what happened in Charlottesville Virginia. Where on August 11–12, 2017 a Unite the Right Rally took place. Many far-right supporters of white supremacy actively protested including the groups alt-right, neo-Confederates, neo-fascists, white nationalists, neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and various right-wing militias. As a result, conflict, and fights broke out when counter-protestors supporting the proposed removal of the statue of General Robert E. Lee from Charlottesville’s former Lee Park. Later a counter-protestor was killed by rally participants who purposefully and willfully drove his car into the crowd (Berreby, 2018, pp.48–49). It is far more than a science of race. It is a science of psychoanalysisobject relations, and identity. The “feverish pitch” that ensues after the realization of a collective narcissistic wound suffered, has marked historical events like the end of World War I and the events that spoked the Charlottesville race riots. Facts tying events of white supremacy and a crisis of white masculinity, to a prior time in American presidential history, when a black Senator from Illinois took the oval office which was immediately followed by a fascist leader.

“In a review of Cullen Murphy’s book, Edward Peters writes, “Murphy ponders ‘what . . . any inquisition really is: a set of disciplinary practices targeting specific groups, codified in law, organized systematically, enforced by surveillance, exemplified by severity, sustained over time, backed by institutional power, and justified by a vision of the one true path. Considered that way, the Inquisition is more accurately viewed not as a relic, but as a harbinger.’ In this sense then, Jane Mayer, author of “Dark Money” writes, ‘Cullen Murphy finds the ‘inquisitorial impulse’ alive, and only too well, in our [modern] world.’”

Subnote: My original studies began with an investigation into religious philosophy as I was educated in a Roman Catholic school system for 13 years. Later I would take up Bible study in my young adult life, between the ages of 23–25. As a result of my early education, I was influenced to pursue readings in religious philosophy as conflict is often rooted in differences of religious identity (Capp, 2009).

The Riddle of Group (Gang) Stalking and Uncovering Some of its “Secret Peculiarities”: A forensic analysis of one individual case study

This post provides a bit more in terms of a forensic analysis of feminine infantile narcissism and object love and its consequential resulting psychopathologies and healthy object selection in the development of normal self-esteem. But more importantly, address the question I left hanging at the bottom of my last post which is:

“How does Freud’s riddle of femininity and the “secret peculiarities” of feminine psychopathology fit into the phenomenology of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults? HINT: knowing age is a determinant to violence even petty passive-aggressive violence

In my previous post, I wrote about some of the “secret peculiarities” of female psychopathologies and some of these characteristics being rooted in immature feminine growth and development. Freud noted there were distinctly evidenced specific traits attributed to femininity such as high degrees of narcissism and a more important desire for them to be loved than to love and this affected their object selection. Otto Kernberg, a psychoanalyst and professor of psychiatry known for his psychoanalytic theories on borderline personality organization and narcissistic pathology, believed normal infantile narcissism in the development of the role the self plays in one’s life is dependent on two things. First, the affirmation of others, and second, the acquisition of desirable and appealing objects which later develops into normal healthy self-esteem. These object selections, as an example, maybe a young girl’s desire for sports/weight training (development for acquiring a metaphorical phallus through competitive competition) or a young girl’s desire for fashion design. Faulty developmental influences can contribute to feminine psychopathologies and persistent egocentricity which contributes to her repetition drive in assaulting others. As an example of such faulty developmental object choices, we might observe a young girl’s desire to become a gang member, part of an organized criminal group where she will receive affirmations regarding her “value to the group”, where worth is determined by the level of violence one is capable of carrying out and/or the selection of drugs and alcohol as substances with which to deal and distribute. This abnormal choice in object selection is often witnessed in cases of parental neglect, abuse, and poverty. Theories central to the analysis of such feminine psychopathologies are primarily Freudian as well as belonging to other ego developmental theories pertinent to psychology like Otto Kernberg and Heinz Kohut and Kleinian object relation theory as well as other object relations perspectives such Donald Winnicott, Robert Fairbain, and John Bowlby.

Since attachments are never fixed as the human psyche is malleable through natural aging and development, the possibility to become unhinged from the arrival at a fixed and normal state as a result of academic work-study and mourning life losses, is always a lurking possibility for all of us, and to which the psychopath knows very well as do psychoanalysts and psychiatrists. We know this because of the pioneering work that has been done and which is central to integrating postwar ego psychology. That is to say, the effects of trauma on the patient and the role trauma plays in undoing otherwise normal healthy growth, healthy attachment, and development. The developmental psychology of the self and the object self in relation to other objects in the environment, under normal conditions, should remain fixed and stable. Under abnormal conditions, a normal stable self can be unraveled and fall into patterns of violence and addiction. This is what postwar psychoanalytic has taught us and to which I believe the phenomenology of Group (Gang) Stalking is being deployed.

I had posited a question at the end of my previous writing, Freud’s Riddle of Femininity and Some of the “Secret Peculiarities” of Female Psychopathologies,

“How does Freud’s riddle of femininity and the “secret peculiarities” of feminine psychopathology fit into the phenomenology of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults? HINT: knowing age is a determinant to violence even petty passive-aggressive violence

We know from reading Shakespeare’s rather comical play, The Taming of the Shrew, the ever-present human desire to control others, especially the opposite Object sex, is an ever-present revolving theme throughout human history. And we know the importance from reading Goethe, the meaning in asking “Is man tempered enough to tame his thirst for power and glory?” This has been an age-old preponderance stretching as far back as classical antiquity wondered about by the fathers of philosophy. And we can surmise society will continue to be an ever-present danger from the psychopath operating in the appearance of a savior welding an electronic weapon with which to “cure the mind” for the purpose of grooming and “tailoring” human subjects’ behavior to their own will.

In my independent studies of psychoanalysis, I have uncovered two areas in psychology specific to detrimental outcomes resulting from side effects from Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture. First, unhinging a person’s Internal Locus of Control through repetitive shocks to the human body/mind (trauma). I have included a post link in the resource section below. And secondly, unhinging fixed object attachments through trauma. That is reversing Kernberg’s requirements for the healthy development of self-esteem and the anti-thesis goes like this: First, the disaffirmation of other through punitive punishments (electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture) and second, the relinquishing of healthy desirable, and appealing object choices and the encouragements in unhealthy object choices with which to develop unhealthy self-esteem and deteriorating sense of self. Such is the change in lifestyle spoken about in the narrative of the phenomenology of Group (Gang) Stalking and often a consequence and side effect to trauma (Sheridan, L; James, D.; & Roth, J., 2020).

Heinz Kohut wrote in 1966 the following:

“Although in theoretical discussions it will usually not be disputed that narcissism, the libidinal investment of the self, is per se neither pathological nor obnoxious, there exists an understandable tendency to look at it with a negatively toned evaluation as soon as the field of theory is left. Where such a prejudice exists, it is undoubtedly based on a comparison between narcissism and object love, and is justified by the assertion that it is the more primitive and the less adaptive of the two forms of libido distribution.” Heinz Kohut, (1966)

In this quote, Kohut is saying that when individuals witness a healthy libidinal interest in the investment of the self, there is usually a tendency to look negatively at it in toned evaluation as soon as we walk away from the study of psychoanalytic theory. In this light, let’s compare the libidinal investment of the self as taking care of their body through healthy diet and exercise (aerobics/weight lifting) as “primitive” and “less adaptive” in terms of “civilized living.” And here, we often hear such people called “lunks”, “jug heads”, or “meatheads”. Of course, referring to their lack of intelligence or aptitude a belief that contributes to the myth-making and hatred against aesthetic physical bodies. Whereas, if the libidinal investment of the self is made in terms of rigorous course work in academics and the development of social bonding within academic groups and where there is less concentration on physical work activity but more mental work in pursuit of higher intelligence (IQ) and a“civilized lifestyle” there seems to be more of an understanding because most people do not have the time nor the resources to dedicate their lives to creating the “perfect body.” When one was in high school, most people witnessed this as “the jock” versus “the nerd” wars. This says something about the juvenile level of narcissism involved in my experiences specifically related to Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assault and psychotronic torture; and Heinz Kohut says this prejudice regarding libidinal investments of the self exists, undoubtedly, as the result in one’s comparison between their own self narcissistic interests and object love choices against the backdrop of another’s narcissistic interests and object love choices. (And we wonder about the high degrees of narcissism found among Facebook users?) That is to say, that the libidinal investment of one’s own narcissism is in terms of their own peculiar object love selections which are then cast into the shadows of wondering doubt in their own psyche when placed next to others’ narcissistic interests and object love choice. As a result, the resulting insecurities and feelings of inferiority displace original feelings of a secure self, and this results in a display of negative toned evaluation of the Object other. Simply ask yourself what do you value and what are you intimidated by when placed up against other objects in your relational world? Do you value having the best-looking aesthetic physique (hard body), house, car or do you value having the best-looking brain (aptitude of intelligence — IQ)? In the case of Facebook users, when individuals preview other individual’s social media timeline may ask, “What is my worth?” “Do I, in fact, “measure up.” This is something we all do; doctors, lawyers, bus drivers, stay-at-home mothers, teachers, etc. However, those with faulty and abnormal self-esteem may react with aggressive recourse in attacking others. This has been my experience using Facebook and social media when one’s achievements are displayed in one’s timeline for all to see, it will inevitably affect someone who does not possess those same experiences. And someone who has not received adequate admiration and affirmations in their early childhood development may react with violence or passive-aggressive violence.

Here we can bring into the discussion Judith Butler’s writing The Force of Nonviolence: An ethico-political bind. Butler distills the problem down to a basic question of utility. The distillates materialize as one pre-emptive question and it is “What groups matter and what groups do not? Who are the valued individuals and who are nonvaluable and disposable? This simple question will, at times, seem to cloud even some of the best minds in psychoanalysis because it is as Jaques Lacan had written in 1978 in The Seminar of Jacques Lacan Book II“The images of man’s body is the principle of every unity he perceives in objects . . . all the objects of his world are always structured around the wondering shadows of his own ego.” And it was Freud who said, “The body is first and foremost a bodily ego (Freud, 1923).” This is true for both females and males alike. Although the attributes to a masculine shape differ from the attributes of a feminine shape, they are both important and valued shapes by the corresponding subjects with regard to their “peculiar” and valued characteristics.

In Bodies that Matter: On the discursive limits of “sex”, Judith Butler provides us with an original reformulation of the materiality of bodies, examining how the power of heterosexual hegemony forms the “matter” of bodies, sex, and gender and this holds true, at least as far as my personal experience with Group (Gang) Stalking, electronic targeted physical assault, and psychotronic torture. That is to say, there seems to be a very real heterosexual hegemony (ego and libidinal interest) with regard to certain cases of Group (Gang-Related) Stalking. Upon further analysis, we discover that bodies can move beyond the boundaries of their physical attributes and characteristics as in the quote “A man is more than just a man.” And for that matter, “A woman is more than just a woman.” Thereby placing the Objects outside of their realm of just another “sexualized body” with which to use and exploit. And what follows the negative toned evaluation of Other, oftentimes, ends up as acts of humiliation of Other rooted in the comparison of one’s own libidinal investment of one’s own narcissism in terms of one’s own peculiar object love selections against the backdrop of Other.

In a paper written in 2015 entitled, Ainsworth Strange Situation Procedure: The Origin of an Instrument, about Mary Ainsworth’s development of the instrument known as “The Strange Situation” in which childhood attachment was evaluated, the paper quotes; “So powerful is this technique in evoking behavioral changes that it is likely to be used with increasing frequency in studies of mother-infant interactions (Ainsworth & Bell, 1970).” In like view, we might also say something similar regarding the “instruments” (electronic devices) used in the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking. We could then compare these instruments of group (gang) related stalking and classify them as weapons and/or counterphobic mechanical objects and consider the theories of Donald Winnicott in which the child’s use of counterphobic inanimate objects exist to help defend and protect the child from resulting fears surrounding separation anxiety felt from perceived feelings of abandonment in the child. This sets up a possible forensic analysis as a perpetrator with a possible borderline personality disorder.
