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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

On Pierre Bourdieu’s Social Capital Theory

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 Targeted Individual and How to Explain It

IMAGE: The Human Scale of design implies that architecture and design are meant for the “utmost enjoyable civilized comforts” the modern age has to offer.

It has been said that Civilization itself peers back at us from any historical archive, as it peers back to us through many archeological and anthropological records. Archives kept as a testament to human development and human evolution as well as a testament to periods of its regression and decline. Still one of the best indexical signs attesting to the presence of man’s proclivity towards mass delusions, at least for me, was the phenomenon of the man said to have lived on earth, the Son of God, Jesus Christ where all source documents come to us as only secondary sources providing some evidence the man called Jesus Christ existed. The man known as Christ never wrote anything in his own hand! Not one primary source document exists. So, how are we to really know him?

This leads me to believe this thing called “religion” might be the delusional sanctuary many psychotics and/or neurotics take refuge in. In another time or place, in another space of existence, its very institution may be symbolic for “the sanitarium”, or psychiatric ward for those suffering from mass trauma and mental illness. As a former Roman Catholic, schooled for thirteen years in the Roman Catholic tradition, and as one who felt so deeply for the man known as Jesus Christ that she suffered a religious hallucination otherwise known as a second baptism, I wondered, “Might not the entire reason for electronic targeting and psychotronic torture be to “cure a disease” and cut in half the mass hysteria surrounding a phenomenon?” Interestingly, some young lovers experience a form of their own transcendence in otherwise delusional altered states of consciousness of lust and sexual desire, creating for themselves their own “stairway to Heaven” so to speak. Shakespeare, I think penned it best when he wrote, “Love is merely a madness.” The full quote goes like this:

“Love is merely a madness; and, I tell you, deserves a well a dark house and a whip as madmen do; and the reason why they are not so punish’d and cured is that the lunacy is so ordinary that the whippers are in love too.” ~lines spoken by Rosalind in “As You Like It” by William Shakespeare

Shakespeare also penned the phrase, “Time travels at different speeds for different people. I can tell you who time strolls for, who it trots for, who it gallops for, and who it stops cold for.” One historian commented the daily activities of the form Holy Roman Inquisition translated perfectly into the spy world of the East German secret police formerly known as the Stasi. It would seem the transference of a common culture rooted in the insular spying culture combined a bit of sadism and power politics and was more hell-bent on maintaining its power than protecting national security. Certain artifacts stand out for their sheer banality — concealed cameras in ties, buttons, light fixtures, picture frames, unsuspected household appliances like air conditioning unit vents, thermoses, bras, and trees! Machines for steaming open 600 pieces of mail an hour, the “smell chair”, and even more modern software for tracking targets online activity and location history, software that can piece together a million pieces of shredded paper, reconfiguring them back into the former whole document that they once were, lo-jacks, audio surveillance devices that pick up acoustic sound from mere yards away, as well as a plethora of other surveillance devices, antennas, surveillance systems and methods for gathering “data.” In fact, scrawled across one of the former Stasi buildings in East German is the graffiti, “Freiheit fur Mine Akte.” Which translates to English as “Freedom for my file.” Then I stop and wonder again, “Could Stasi tactics and methods be THAT bad?! I mean, someone like me, a virtual nobody, a girl, has been hoisted to the level of “dangerous sociopathic threat to the community” in a way that makes me look like a serial raping predator? Should I feel honored someone sees me as an ever so menacing and looming presence that I have my very own Leibstandarte SS Adolf, the Fuhrer’s personal guard watchdogging over me, also known as the Third Reich’s eagle!

The Tunnel of Truth

The Tunnel of Truth has a bit of different meaning for me. Once suggested that a Tunnel of Truth should be instituted for major Olympic sports games to thwart acts of terrorism, as a many yards long passageway that would scan people to “sniff out” radiation, explosives, biohazards, and at the same time use facial-recognition software to identify those who may be on a “watchlist.” For me, the Tunnel of Truth relates to psychoanalysis and establishing an individual’s personal identity, those character traits of personality that make people who they are. For me, my Tunnel of Truth had to do with a quest of personal insight and integrity seeking and truth-finding, evidence that may defy what I previously believed to be “the Truth.” I found your assumed “integrity” or “dis-integrity” or “truth” or “lies,” whatever it is you are looking at, can become the painful and upsetting evidence you need to work through. Even exploring the historical archive and making connections to what has historically made humanity both good and evil, still makes humanity good and evil although minor differences in culture remain. As a young academic student in my early 30s, I very much possessed the human proclivity to absolutely believe in a hubris of an “evolved and educated species.” Only to find the collective human conscience from ancient Rome to present-day politics has very much remained the same because the mechanics of government and the technology of war have not at all changed. They have only evolved in technical and scientific ways. Similar to the emergence of a novel and new virus every one hundred years or so, so too are the emergences of novel and new dictators and tyrannical forms of leadership. A famous line in Tacitus notes how eagerly the people of ancient Britain took up Roman customs and devices, observing, “The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as civilization, when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement.”

It can sometimes present as an almost satirical phrase, “The rules are on a human scale.” The meaning implies, of course, that architecture and designs are meant for the “utmost civilized” enjoyable comforts the modern age has to offer, accommodating and promoting that “good human experience.” That is, the accommodations are made to attract a certain type or quality of persons, in promoting positive civilized human behaviors in the respectable sense as opposed to those qualities of experience enjoyed by the “base and uncivilized human animals.” The rules are on a human scale appeal to all the human senses as an enjoyable sensory experience fitted properly for only the upmost refined and cultivated individuals.

In speaking about the use of torture, Cullen Murphy notes, “There are times when people can legally be restrained because of fears that they represent a danger to themselves or others.” Usually, most individuals posing a threat to themselves or others are sent to psychiatric institutions, facilities designed to treat and “rehabilitate mental illness.” He goes on to note, “There are times when people can be targeted simply because they belong to a class of persons perceived as threatening, and there are times when people can be subjected to extreme forms of interrogation, including what amounts to torture, because, it is argued, some greater harm will be prevented.” I do not believe my Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture to be one of them.

What I do believe, is that a central theme is playing out in large part as the reason for my Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture and that it is rooted in theories postulated by Pierre Bourdieu. Bourdieu was a French sociologist and public intellectual who was interested in the dynamics of power operating in society. He was concerned with the nature of culture, how it is reproduced and how it is transformed and how it connects to social stratification and the exercise of powerBourdieu was very much interested in “social capital.” One of his key contributions was the relationship between different types of capital: Economics, Cultural, Social, and Symbolic. Intricately playing into social capital are sex and gender roles as well as youth and the agedbeauty and nonbeauty as well as health and “disease”. These very elements hold special meaning and positions within Bourdieu’s idea of social capitalAspects of social capital can promote game moves made with the same purpose as what counterintelligence agents might use to influence the course of events (known as black operations) by actually making someone intentionally ill or targeting them with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture so as to feign an illusion to your targeted audience that the subject has a very real “illness” in order to better ensure your position and power as a power move in a power game. This happens all the time in theatres of war that utilize spy games and the art of “spin”.

One example of political administrations that have used “dirty tricks” in power play games has been seen in presidents who use the Internal Revenue Service as a weapon against their enemies. In fact, there is a book written by former Franklin & Marshall professor, John Andrew, entitled “Power to Destroy: The Political Uses of the IRS from Kennedy to Nixon.” It is a fact that former presidential administrations of Nixon, Johnson, and Kennedy, and FDR all were reported to have used the IRS as a political weapon against their political enemies. In fact, any business person or government employee with access to government databases with the power to access financial information could potentially run a preliminary investigation into any unsuspecting person’s finance and employment history. During my independent research study in psychoanalysis pertaining to object relations and identity, I stumbled upon a few interesting different research studies regarding the character traits of sadism and aspects of dehumanization (listed below). One of these studies observed a prevalence for the character traits known as the Dark Triad/Dark Tetrad in students who majored in business.

Under McCarthyism, the FBI carried on under the aegis of its counterintelligence program, secret Cointerpro operations (1956–1971), and directed most of its efforts against leftist groups, civil rights activists, and, later, antiwar protesters. A book by A.G. Theoharis & J.S. Cox title “Boss: J. Edgar Hoover and the Great American Inquisition” discusses the life of the entity formerly known as Cointerpro. Cointerpro agents were authorized to use subterfuge, plant agents provocateurs, leak derogatory information to the press, and employ other disruptive tactics to destabilize the operations of targeted groups. So, what do you think the modern-day phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture is all about? They are all about disruptive tactics to destabilize the operations of targeted groups.

Acts of Subculture: From Illegitimacy to Legitimacy

Is it any surprise that Cointerpro’s clandestine operations were shut down in 1971 soon after its existence had been exposed by activists? When at this very same time, various movements addressing the social inequality inherent in American society began taking on a better cohesive shape and started making bigger strides toward independence for certain disenfranchised groups. In response to what had been traditionally perceived as the male hegemony of patterned dominance over women and the personal violence of male patterned political control over women’s behavior in American culture, women began to recognize the male pattern expression in their culture as a culture of sexism. Following the late 1960s “the Great Sexual Transformation” would begin America. In the 1970s we see more women being emancipated from their former domestic gender roles as more women are represented in the workforce. By the end of the 1970s, a majority of American men would also voice their support for sexual equality in family affairs as well. As a result, more women and men, in the late 1970s, identified with a woman’s right to individual personhood and not just objects of domestication and much needed “household props”.

Following the Stonewall Riots in New York City in 1969, homosexuals also began bigger strides for their sexual rights and in the 1970s San Francisco, California would provide an atmosphere free from social stigmas. In addition, it was at this time BDSM chapters began organizing themselves establishing their legal rights to perform the behavior utilizing the concept of “consent” and shifting movement away from criminalization toward decriminalization of this particular, much sought-after sexual form of deviance. It is not surprising that during this same time Cointerpro operations were recognized for what they represented to American society; politically oppressive. This is a key point I am trying to make in reference to my Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. That is to say, the mentally in performing these targeted acts (criminal behaviors) belongs to a very specific time period in history; McCarthyism and 1956 and Red Scares.

This process, which Jill D. Weinberg calls social decriminalization, is a process that must occur with groups who engage in illegal conduct. Discussions around decriminalization begin their analyses with a law’s repeal or relaxation, focusing on the impact of liberalization. We can refer to Erich Goode’s book “Between Politics and Reason: The Drug Legalization Debate” (1997) and the emergence of decriminalization of marijuana use and the eventual legalization of its use and possession. What we witnessed in the late 1960s and into the 1970s was the social acceptance and move away from traditional sexual gender roles that imposed “domestic work status” on womenas well as the deviant sexual decriminalization of homosexuality and BDSM and its move towards more liberal acceptance surrounding aspects of what is considered to be benign forms of sexual deviance. And in 1973, Texas becomes the first state to start the road to decriminalization of marijuana by reducing the penalty for possession, and in fact, many other states including Oregon, Alaska, Maine, Colorado, California, Ohio, Minnesota, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina South Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, and Virginia follow suit by lowering the sentence for possession and fines imposed for possession of the substance. It isn’t until 1996 when California becomes the first state to legalize the use of medical marijuana that a long line of consecutive yearly legislative acts in various states across the United States lead to the ultimate decriminalization, legalized recreational marijuana use. Legalized recreational use begins in Colorado and Washington state in the United States in 2012 (Wikipedia, Timeline of Cannabis Laws in the United States).

Interestingly, marijuana would become criminalized under the Narcotics Control Act of 1956 around the same time Cointerpro operations would begin its clandestine operations due to Red Scares. Perhaps the oppressive politics of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture also possess a similar “time/date stamp” rooted in the oppressive politics of a time era; McCarthyism, 1956, and Red Scares?

In the 1970s, individuals and groups had created for themselves the appropriate conditions in order to convince lawmakers and the public that removing criminal sanctions against their behavior is appropriate. Since rules become the primary basis toward social decriminalization because it transforms violence into acceptable aggression, and since these groups (otherwise labeled as deviant) included womenhomosexuals, BDSM, recreational drug users, but also include Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and the Ultimate Fight Championship (UFC), polygamy, and the “right to die”, more commonly referred to assisted suicide. Social decriminalization requires four (4) conditions: (1) an organized group of participants who participate in the same activity, (2) a shared legal consciousness that the particular behavior involved is not threatening to the safety of the community, (3) an established set of rules and norms that appeal to a legal-rational authority, and (4) a social context where the activity is not too morally verboten.

Not previously discussed was the social decriminalization of behavior rooted in criminal battery laws that allow for physical assaults (physical beatings) in Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). On November 12, 1993, the UFC held its first vale tudo event in the United States with the challenge: fighters from a variety of disciplines pitted against one another — Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu versus Muay Thai, for example — to determine the best hand-to-hand combat style. The UFC had fighters par in an octagonal metal cage, in part for the spectacle and in part because it allowed camera crews to film without interfering with the fights themselves.

And now my final point, that the behavior known as Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture is rooted in the very same thing I opened this discussion with, civilization and humanity’s proclivity toward mass delusionssexualized aggression, and the defunding of an individual’s social capital through targeted acts of violence.

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.

Since Prohibiting Alcohol Through Legal Sanction Isn’t An Option, Electronic Torture Is The New Black In Dealing With The “Non-Valuable Persons”

Laws have been relaxed when it comes to marijuana use. Soon all of America will one day enjoy the freedom of cannabis. Like alcohol, it is legal to purchase edibles infused with THC as well as smoke it. At least in my own state of residence. The “cannabis wave” seems to be a wave catching momentum within America. So, what’s my electronic targeting all about? It’s clearly a force pressing against my mind, oppressing my will and right to choose. But does the law grant any “professional authority” (medical doctor, psychiatrist, police officer, or otherwise) the right to inflict pain and suffering through torture? No. Consent is required for that and it must be a legally formulated medical contract. A contract in the interest of “curing a patient.” A contract for BDSM is not considered legal by the courts and therefore would not be binding. So, if you have a contract with your lover you think is “binding,” think again. If he/she decides to sue you, you will be guilty for all damages.

So what is electronic targeting with psychotronic torture about? My targeting didn’t explode into my life until after very specific events took place. One, work at a predominantly male engineering firm. Followed by, two separate tragic deaths of close relatives in car accidents. My brother and my nephew. Three, a relapse into drug use. Four, I was involved in a hit and run and taken to Helene Fuld Psychiatric Ward for evaluation (diagnosed “schizophrenic”). Five, accepting employment at the Trenton Times that worked closely with Trenton and Mercer County detectives (MCPO). Police were always present as security. Six, I was raped while trying to cop. Seven, reported the violent crime to the MCPO December 2006. Eight, went into “treatment program”. In 2009, my psychotronic torture would begin. So what’s causing my targeting? Have I been chosen for electronic targeting and psychotronic torture because I “got help” from my local welfare agency and state funded medical care? Was I thrust into experimental medical research like a Holocaust Jew? Is it because I’m a “white” girl in a predominantly black oppressed urban government agency that services “underprivileged groups?” Is it a conspiracy being performed by the other mentally disordered members in my family? Or have I just been chosen for “automated disposal” by some automated garbage collector rooted in white supremacy? Let there be no illusions about what electronic targeting and psychotronic torture is all about. It’s about the torture of the innocent by a narcissist! People who possess the the caliber for such crimes of torture sometimes rise in the ranks to eventually hold powerful positions of leadership. No more than three (3) grand inquisitors went on to become pope. While those who expose real Truth, like Galileo, are sequestered, isolated, and silenced. Galileo’s views challenged Church doctrine and the Church set out to contain it. All one has to do is do a perusal of history to find that many, many, leaders who were focused and dedicated possessed a form of mental illness (sadism, greed, Machiavellianism, narcissism, psychopathy, and a personality disorder).

People who are being electronically targeted suffering psychotronic torture are being “dealt with” much like the Vatican police deals with its inner-group 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).

What The Book of Job Teaches Us About Game Theory and the Phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking of the Targeted Individual

Illustration of Job from the Old Testament

This article makes a point to make a literary comparison of the afflictions suffered by Job in the Bible and the phenomenon of electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture, and that both are of a similar nature. This article also makes a point to define and diagnose the “God” of these assaults with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) as outline by the DSM-IV. I borrow on the work of Donald Capps in a journal article he wrote for Pastoral Psychology, as well as psychoanalysts who have contributed to psychoanalytic theory. Authors like Heinz Kohut, Herbert Rosenfeld, Nancy Chodorow, and Melanie Klein.

In the Book of Job, after Job, a faithful and upright individual suffers losses of livestock, the death of his 10 children by marauding men, followed by an affliction of open sores all over his body (Behcet’s Disease), he wants to confront God face-to-face, and not through intercessory prayer either. He wants to talk to him directly and ask why he is being punished? For Job inquires, “Why have you made me your target?”(Job 7:20) Job finds God’s elusive nature a problem. The job cannot confront God face-to-face because he is “God.” It isn’t until God presents himself to Job in form of a whirlwind does Job inquires of God’s cruelty.

What the reader/listener is aware, and Job himself is not, is that “God” and “Satan” have entered a GAME. After roaming about the Earth and walking around in it, Satan enters the court of God. God wants to know if he has noticed his faithful follower Job in which Satan replies that he had. Satan challenges God by saying the only reason he is so faithful is that God has given him everything; abundant and plentiful livestock, property, financial wealth, 10 children. Satan tells God if he strikes out his hand, Job wouldn’t be so faithful. God, refusing to hurt his faithful follower himself, offers Job to Satan and says do with him as you wish but do not harm him. Two players, God and Satan, in a finite game with the goal to see what type of rational or irrational choices will be made by the game piece called Job. Remember the movie Trading Places with Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd?

A strategic attack is placed upon Job’s blessings: his livestock is struck dead, all 10 children murdered, and Job is afflicted with open, painful sores all over his body. All this which God allows because he believes Job cannot be turned against him in the wager he has made with Satan.

What of God’s invisibility? God cannot be reached by Job directly in the physical sense because of God’s nature. In fact, God instead, God presents himself to Job as the superior controlling player in the game and manifests himself as a whirlwind in which he speaks to Job directly in the form of a whirlwind for five chapters. It is during these conversations we get a glimpse of a controlling, unempathetic, sadistically cruel God. The diagnosis by Donald Capp in Pastoral Psychology has been narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) and he has proven God has met all nine criteria in various books of the Old Testament including the Book of Job. In fact, God belittles Job’s intelligence and inferior knowledge through a series of rhetorical questions, for it is God who is clearly the superior, all-knowing deity. And to further add insult to injury, God basically says to Job how dare you question my justice? I am the superior person in this arrangement and not YOU! How dare YOU pronounce me wicked so that YOU may be right? He says Job’s claims are recklessly bold and insolent. This is the typical response we expect to get from a person with NPD, for God is guilty as hell for causing Job’s pain and suffering but eludes being blamed for it by gaslighting his victim.

What’s more, is God’s showy entrance into the world of living human beings. He chooses, not as a disguise the shape of mortal man or “a messenger from God” with which to identify with Job in human form, but he appears to Job as a showy whirlwind. What a grand entrance for this “superior being”! He displays a similarly consistent style of showmanship in Exodus when he exacts the ten (10) plagues against Egypt. What a performance of perfectly destructive showmanship; flies, gnats, frogs, locusts, and inflicting man and beast with boils all over their bodies. He even rains down sulfur and fire on the city of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Bible story found in Genesis [Gen. 19:23–24]. But does God ever take on responsibilities like creating economic infrastructure, supporting foreign trade, providing opportunities for employment, the development of aqueducts, and the building of cities, providing social services for the poor, sick, and the disabled? All these aspects are consistent with exceptional statesmanship, the work and hard grit of “lowly humans” seem to be countered by fierce, military, pyrotechnics. In fact, God doesn’t do any of the things attributed to the hard work and perseverance of human populations, although he does claim to have given the people who create these accomplishments the “gifts” and “talents” to do so. Of all of God’s skills, showmanship is surely one of them, however, it appears he is lacking when it comes to a supportive leadership role, characteristics we typically attribute to traits like honesty, integrity, intrepidness, hard work, and perseverance of adversity to the human race. And not God! At least as far as the Book of Job is concerned. We could also discuss his leadership skills when he hand-selected Moses and guided him through the desert for 40 years, where, under God’s navigation and leadership, made them wander like nomads for 40 years! Wandering nomads may very well have walked in circles during their 255-mile trek to the promised land. Exceptional skills of statesmanship belong to excellent leaders which God is clearly not. At least when it comes to the Book of Job.

Destructive Showmanship and Destructive Narcissistic Defense Function of NPD; A review of Herbert Rosenfeld’s work

We can make connections and comparisons to the aspect of destructive showmanship of a militarized defensive posture of God with his earthquakes and the pyrotechnics of raining fire and brimstone from the sky and make a connection to the presence of infantile psychic destructive forces within the construct of narcissistic personality disorder where the purpose for an exhibition of power is to pervert and block growth and development as well as providing an attacking defensive function against victims, where devaluing and depreciating the subject to the point of rendering them “useless” and “worthless” (Rosenfeld, 1971) can be made in both the plight of Job, the plight of the Jewish Holocaust, and the plight of the Targeted Individual suffering electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture.

As I have stated, I can make a direct connection and comparison between this analysis of the Book of Job, right-wing radical Republican liberals (Mayer, 2016), and the analysis Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture which are obvious acts of destructive showmanship and not supportive statesmanship.

In another bulleted point, God said to Moses, “Go into Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his servants, that I may show these signs of mine among them, and that you may tell in the hearing of your son and of your son’s son how I have made sport of the Egyptians and what signs I have done among them; that you may know that I am the Lord” (Exod. 10:1–2). The whole idea is to draw attention to himself through a few signs that make sport of the Egyptians, making them look rather foolish. Is this not what game theory has taught us about warfare and to which reveals to us the purpose of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. That it is nothing more than a demonstration of how “stupid,” “weak,” “childish,” “foolish” the victim is? A flashy array of showmanship utilizing hi-tech advanced technology and the smoke and mirrors of a seduction utilizing implanted software on victim’s computer devices that “hack into” the private lives of the victims as well as implanted biological devices that “hack into” the victim’s brains? Creating disruption, distraction, denial of rights, and the illusion of an “omnipotent and powerful God” in order to elicit in the victim feelings of “powerlessness,” “inferiority,” and “fear” against a clearly “superior power.” And if we consider the aspect of victim selection in populations suffering malevolent forms of NPD, we see victims tend to be weaker, vulnerable, accessible targeted populations for the narcissist.

Another point to make is this. Although the readers/listeners to the Book of Job are made aware of the wager between God and Satan, Job, himself, is not. As a result of this lack of privileged information, Job becomes confused as to the reason for his punishments. God and Satan both know Job is blameless, upright, and faithful. The dilemma in Job’s situation is in the folly of trying to understand “God’s ways” when certain “human people” (non-ecclesiastical) are not privileged “to know the mind of God.” Here we might make a literary comparison to the work of Goethe in his play Faust. What follows for Job is confusion, as well as a deception by the very God he loves and trusts. Every good detective knows a criminal will lie through his teeth. That is why detectives are taught techniques in uncovering the lies told by criminal agents. But Job does not shrink in the face of a larger-than-life dictator and says, “Look! I have become of little account. What shall I reply to you?” In other words, I’ve clearly been reduced to a 10th of my worth, you clearly took away from me what you wanted, demonstrating to me you clearly hold the superior position. What am I to say to you?

With regard to Group (Gang) Stalking as the reason for its manifestation is for its purpose in GAME PLAY, then the reason I contend it has been instituted upon the victim is because that the victim has achieved Nash’s Equilibrium in his/her lifestyle. And Nash’s Equilibrium states that “… Nash equilibrium is a decision-making theorem within the game theory that states a player can achieve the desired outcome by not deviating from their initial strategy.” So, if a player has no incentive to make a change, or consider an alternate choice in his/her lifestyle, then, how is one to illicit a change? And the answer to that question, as was Satan’s hoped-for outcome in the Book of Job, is to elicit a change in the victim’s choices by inflicting a painful and tormenting, outside opposing force, upon the victim, which takes the form of electronic targeted physical and psychotronic assaults in Targeted Populations, or in Job’s case, inflicting him with catastrophic loses and painful open sores. And the man who confronted me over Quora.com while I was discussing my experience as a Targeted Individual stated it was “because I couldn’t imagine anything better for myself.” This is in line with Satan’s response to God, “Job is only faithful to you because you give him everything!” It would seem that prosperity and wealth is the difference that separates the classes. And I contend the reason for my targeting.

The biggest development in the advancement of Job’s position would have been in the revelation that what is being done to him is nothing more than a GAME! A game bought about because Job is living in prosperity under the protection and benevolence of God. But because Job is not privileged to the information that God and Satan are only playing a game, he remains preoccupied with his suffering and punishments, endlessly wondering what he has done wrong to displease God. The fault, as is the faultline in the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalked Targeted Individual suffering electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture, can be viewed as when Job’s friends come to assist him, attempting to explain to Job with limited understanding and knowledge regarding “God’s ways”. The unavailable information denied them is in the fact that God and Satan are, in fact, at the craps table at Trump’s casino playing a GAME with Job’s very life and welfare just to see “what Job will do next.” The unavailable knowledge is that it is all a GAME to transform Job and darken his faith against God! And here we might ponder the fact of whether or not the phenomenon of the Targeted Individual suffering electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture might not be a purposefully crafted design, an experiment if you will, using hi-tech advances (the militarized defensive posture akin to earthquakes and fiery pyrotechnics of the Old Testament) to transform the subject’s [a Job substitute] “own narcissism” (Kohut, 1966/1986).

Kohut noted that like all complex human activities, creativity involves the whole personality, and thus a wide range of psychological structures and drives. God clearly is a creative being and creativity is a much needed attribute in transforming destructive narcissistic infantile psychic forces into more productive modes of socialized behavior. He had created many things. “But clearly, more than just the narcissistic energies are involved … But narcissism plays a key role in the creative activity of the individual “as a spur, driving him toward fame and acclaim” and which we could certainly say of God. Another narcissistic aspect of creativity is the “idealizing libido” which manifest itself in one’s own passionate involvement in creative work. The analogy between this involvement and the mother’s love for her unborn fetus and newborn baby is often invoked, but Kohut believes that “the creative person’s relationship to his work has less in common with the expanded narcissism of motherhood than with the still restricted narcissism of early childhood” (p. 75). In fact, “the personality of many unusually creative individuals is more childlike than maternal,” and “the experiments of some of the great in science impress the observer with their almost childlike freshness and simplicity” (p. 75) [Capps, 2009].”

Capps goes on to further say,

“Thus, whether in art or in science, the creative individual “is less psychologically separated from his surroundings than the noncreative one; the I-you barrier is not as clearly defined,” and the “intensity of the creative person’s awareness of the relevant aspects of his surroundings is akin to the detailed self-perceptions of the schizoid and the childlike: it is nearer to a child’s relationship to his excretions or to some schizophrenics’ experiences of their body, than to a healthy mother’s feeling for her newborn child” (p. 75). In this connection, Kohut cites the work of Phyllis Greenacre and Kurt R. Eissler, noting that “their findings are consistent with the proposition that the artist invests his work with a specific form of narcissistic libido” (p. 76). The very fact that creative people “tend to alternated during periods of productivity between phases when they think extremely highly of their work and phases when they are convinced that it has no value, is a sure indication that the work is connected with a form of narcissistic libido” (p. 77). Thus, consistent with Freud’s view that the narcissistic drives originate in the child’s desire to recover the sense of perfection that be originally enjoyed, Kohut concludes:

Creative artists, and scientists, may be attached to their work with the intensity of an addiction, and they try to control and shape it with forces and for purposes which belong to a narcissistically experienced world. They are attempting to re-create a perfection which formerly was directly and attribute of their own; during the act of creation, however, they do not relate to their work in the give-and-take mutuality which characterizes object-love. (p. 77) [Capps, 2009]”

With regard to the limited information available to victims of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture, a.k.a. The Targeted Individual, the confusion to their plight is further compounded by the fact that disinformation regarding the phenomenon gets passed around the internet. In my experience with Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture, as an umbrella term assigned to it that does not accurately categorize it, it is most likely being carried out by someone who is suffering from NPD or perhaps some other type of personality disorder such as schizoid personality disorder in combination with a clustering of the Dark Tetrad traits (sadism, Machiavellianism, narcissism, psychopathy). If we consider Capps’ comment regarding the personality type of God in his analysis,

“One could just as well argue that God suffers from schizoid personality disorder, whose essential feature is “a pervasive pattern of detachment from social relationships and a restricted range of expression of emotions in interpersonal settings (DSM-IV).” Such persons often seem indifferent to the approval or criticism of others and do not appear to be bothered by what others may think of them. We can easily imagine that such a person might help someone overcome colon cancer and then subsequently create a flood in which this person perishes, and does not have much feeling about either of these occurrences or even consider that they might appear contradictory (Capps, 2009).”

To further illustrate aspects of schizoid personality disorder (SPD), I will gather from my own personal experience as a rape victim. Men who rape women may very well have suffer from SPD. SPD is at the heart of abnormal object relations based on Kleinian theory (Jacobs, 2007). As known rapists operating in the communities are split against their maternal love object (Palmer, 2011). As a result, men who rape can demonstrate a form of “detachment from social relationships,” especially concerning women through repetitive sexual assaults. Men of this type often have a restricted range of expression or emotions which is also termed “shallow effect” during consensual intercourse. This restricted range of expression and/or emotions may, at times, seem to be connected with drug and alcohol abuse but because the perpetrator’s history of violence is most likely due to SPD. During sessions of consensual sex, men who rape may display shallow effect which is characterized by a lack in depth of emotional feeling in combination with mechanistic robot-like movement, but in scenarios of forceable sexual assault, these men express themselves, although considered abnormal and antisocial behavior, with a range of almost “normal” emotional content and movement consistent with normal heterosexual passion.

However, in its discussion of the nine criteria required for narcissistic personality disorder, the DSM-IV notes that often implicit in their inflated judgements concerning their own accomplishments is an underestimation or devaluation of the contributions of others (criterion 1); that they may ruminate about “long overdue” admiration and privilege and compare themselves favorably with famous or privileged people (criterion 2); that their own self-esteem is enhanced by the idealized value they assign to those with whom they associate (criterion 3); that their self-esteem is usually very fragile and they therefore fish for compliments, expect their arrival to be greeted with great fanfare, and are astonished if others do not covet their possessions (criterion 4); that they expect to be catered to and are puzzled or furious when this does not happen, assume that they do not have to wait in line, consider their priorities to be so important that others should defer to them, and get irritated when others fail to assist in their very important work (criterion 5); that they expect to be given whatever they want or feel they need, no matter what it might mean to others, and form friendships or romantic relationships only if the other person seems likely to advance their purposes or otherwise enhance their self-esteem (criterion 6); that they assume that others are totally concerned about their welfare, discuss their own concerns in inappropriate and lengthy detail while failing to recognize that others have feelings and needs, and treat those who talk about their own problems and concerns with impatience and contempt (criterion 7); that they begrudge others their successes or possessions, feeling that they better deserve those achievements, admiration, or privileges, and devalue the contributions of others, particularly when those individuals have received acknowledgement or praise for their accomplishments (criterion 8); and that they tend to make their disdain for others very apparent, such as by complaining about a clumsy waiter’s “stupidity” or concluding a medical evaluation with a condescending evaluation of the physician (criterion 9).

And as Donald Capps has carefully illustrated for us, God in the Old Testament meets the nine criteria for NPD. In addition, another important point I would like to include is the information that aspects of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture, at least as I have experienced the, can be analyzed in the same manner, as it presents a similar dilemma in, not only game theory, but also in Job’s dilemma in the Bible Book of Job in the Old Testament. And the person who is at the root of this phenomenon clearly demonstrates he is in full possession of a “God Complex” better known as a personality disorder and that this person values his identity because he carefully conceals it from exposure much like God who calls himself “I AM WHO I AM.” When prompted by Moses to reveal his name, God said; “At this God said to Moses: “I SHALL PROVE TO BE WHAT I SHALL PROVE TO BE.” And he added: “This is what you are to say to the sons of Israel, “I SHALL PROVE TO BE” has sent me to YOU [Exodus 3:14].” Some translations use the phrase “I AM WHO I AM.”

Let’s consider the aspect reflected in the Book of Job when God allowed himself to be drawn into a wager with Satan and this fact evidences God’s rather fragile self-esteem. “A person with a secure sense of self-esteem would not worry much as to whether someone was loyal to him. He would accept this loyalty as a given and appreciate it for what it represented and helped him to accomplish (Capps, 2009).” This ties into the faultlines and fragilities of masculinity Nancy Chodorow has theorized about in Individualizing Gender and Sexuality: Theory and Practice. Men who are not secure in their identity will sometimes fall victim to acts of aggression and violence (Barna, 2021). Nancy Chodorow writes,

“Humiliation, specifically, is especially a male-male — originally father-son — affair. In the normal developmental course of events, much hinges on how a boy relates to his father and turns into a man — the delicate negotiation of this transformation, of identification, of how to replace or join without bringing on retaliation, castration, or humiliation. All of these, in turn, depend partly on a father’s own sense of confident masculinity and selfhood. … (Chodorow, 2012, pp. 131).”

“In addition, the fact God entered into this wager demonstrates a clear lack of empathy and is a demonstration that he is either unwilling or incapable to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others (Capps, 2009).” The fact that God would place Job in the direct line of a firestorm from an evil malevolence clearly speaks of how much he truly cared about Job and Job’s suffering. “Even when he appeared to Job in the whirlwind, he did not ask Job how he was feeling, much less apologize to Job for putting him through his awful ordeal. Instead, he told Job that God did not know what he was talking about, thus intimating that this man who had been so faithful to him was not very intelligent (an unintended irony?). This attack on Job’s intelligence had its desired effect because when God stopped to catch his breath, Job responded that he was of a little account and we would speak no more [Job 40:3–4] (Capps, 2009).”

If we consider a research article from Psychiatry Research published in 2018 and completed to assess the gender differences in populations with NPD, it states:

“Although this disorder is estimated to affect 7.7% of males and 4.8% of females in the general population (Stinson et al., 2008) and is associated with substantial functional impairment and psychosocial disability (Stinson et al., 2008), it remains one of the least studied personality disorders (Caligor et al., 2015) [Hoertel, Peyre, Lavaud, Blanco, Guerin-Langlois, Rene, Schuster, Lemogne, Deloreme & Limosin, 2018].”

If we make a comparison to borderline personality disorder (BPD) and the gender distributions within populations of BPD, and consider the criterion for its diagnosis, we come to discover that it is far less likely that God or the person responsible for the electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture of Targeted Individuals is a female (Silberschmidt, Lee, Sanarini & Schulz, 2015).

To further illustrate the argument for God’s NPD in the Book of Job, one might think that when Job said he would speak no more, it would have ended the matter, but God would not let Job off the hook quite that easily. Instead, he demanded that Job speak by responding to the questions that God was putting to him. He told Job to “gird up his loins like a man,” for “I will question YOU, and you declare TO ME,” adding, “Will you even put me in the wrong? Will you condemn me that you may be justified?” [40: 7–8]. It’s hard to imagine a more unfeeling attack on a man who is struggling just to keep alive, especially when we consider that God entered into the wager with Satan merely to prove that there are lots of people who admire God for who he is and not merely for what he does for them. An impartial reader of Job would probably conclude that Job’s response to the effects of the wager proved Satan’s point, that, in effect, God knew that Job’s reaction to what had happened to him would have forced God to concede that he had lost the bet with Satan. Perhaps this was why he demeaned Job, for a narcissist does not take kindly to being proven wrong.

What’s more, is in knowing the Book of Job’s purpose is to produce an effect/affect in the reader/listener rather than to communicate a literal idea. How is the reader made to feel upon learning that God and Satan are playing a game with Job’s life? As a faithful follower and diligent servant to his Lord and Master, a valued follower to God, in return what is God’s reward for such loyalty? Job is thrust into a GAME with Satan and God who will toy with his welfare; his emotions, his life (health), his faith, and his financial well-being. And, in return for all this suffering placed upon a blameless follower, for the purpose of a defensive posture supporting God’s very male ego, God blatantly demeans Job with a bullying approach condemning him for audaciously “questioning His justice.”

Another bulleted point is in the very similar way of how God conceals his identity and the perpetrators’ to electronic targeted assault and psychotronic torture also hide their identity from their victims. Capps noted, “God has a grandiose sense of self-importance and believes that he doesn’t have to have a name assigned to himself. He states, “I AM WHO I AM” which is an indication of such grandiosity. Whereas other deities had names suggesting that they were the gods of the people residing in a given locale, God took a name that not only drew attention to himself but also manifested the sort of grandiosity of which narcissists are famous, for he says, in effect, that a person as important as he does not have to be identified: “Who I am is who I am [Capps, 2009).”

Can we not say this as well for electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture and the plight of the Targeted Individual? Alternately, we hear the phrase spoken, “It is what it is.” This gives the speaker a convenient exit towards an excuse not to take responsibility for issues when there is clearly a need for corrective actions. I have heard abusers speak this phrase in order to elude the work of recovery. If an impoverished child falls ill with HIV because his/her mother is a prostitute who has acquired full-blown AIDS, certainly we wouldn’t let that child perish? Would we? Clearly, this is not what Americans stand for. We would not allow that child to perish without proper medicine just because of the inequities of a misguided parent. No, we would not. Neither would we seek to further punish that child for belonging to the lower classes. We would provide supportive statesmanship and social welfare benefits (Democratic statesmanship). Perhaps even provide improved educational opportunities in learning. This type of statesmanship clearly deviates from right-wing radical liberal Republicans who want to do what they want to do and the right-wing radical liberal Republican groups that form under the guidance of the Koch brothers. What’s more, is we could make similar comparisons to right-wing radical liberal groups that gathered at Charlottesville Virginia in 2017. Such events as the Unite the Right Rally where various white supremacy groups rooted white Klan ideology, alt-right, neo-Confederates, neo-fascists, white nationalists, neo-Nazi, Klansman, and various right-wing militias groups gathered in protest.

I propose, that just like the Book of Job, the purpose of electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture is to illicit an effect/affect in the reader/listener. The purpose of electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture is to illicit a feeling/emotion (fear/agitation), a response (verbal aggression/silence), some type of action/behavior (inaction/action/stay-at-home/ leave the house) and/or induce alternate states of consciousness (such as sedation or stimulation/inducing dream-like states through the use of new technologies of eSTIM as seen in Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) research) [Khan, 2016]. We can compare this to reports of random acts of gun violence in people who claimed they were being electronically targeted. To say, that the people claiming group (gang)stalking with electronic targeted assaults or psychotronic torture were “mentally ill” does the investigation an injustice because of one simple overlooked element; GAME THEORY. Game Theory can illuminate for us the rational choices made by characters in texts ranging from the Bible to Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 as well as in the analysis of irrational choices made by men in random acts of gun violence. For this reason, we can explicate strategic questions in law, history, and philosophy from Game Theory.

They claim the “mental illness” of the victim suffering electronic targeted physical assault and psychotronic torture is the reason, yet I will clearly demonstrate, point for point, how the perpetrators of such violence are just as mentally ill. So that the question becomes, Is it me? Or is it them? Am I the “problem?” Or are the perpetrators the problem? Because what it sounds like to me, is that phenomenon of the Targeted Individual, there appear to be two opposing groups of people and one of them is more mentally ill than the other in trying to annihilate them through clandestine electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture!

CONCLUSION

The comparison made between the Book of Job (Job’s dilemma) to the content narrative of electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture of the Targeted Individual and the likelihood that person carrying out these destructive attacks possess NPD or some similar type of personality disorder can be summed up as follows:

(1) God’s grandiose sense of self-importance in exaggerating his superiority. He in fact refuses to identify himself with a name saying, “I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14). Similarly, we see the perpetrator to electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture pre-occupied with similar refusal to divulge their identity as can be supported through the empirical evidence of invisible assaults against human populations in which the perpetrator carefully conceals their identity similar to ransomware attacks. If we consider the aspects of prosperity and wealth as characteristics that separate the classes, we can contend the reason for such game play in electronic targeting, as seen in ransomware attacks, is in the purpose to diminish the other while acquiring some of that very prosperity for God himself.

(2) God seems to be preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited power and brilliance. God has repeatedly demonstrated a tendency towards destructive showmanship causing earthquakes and raining fire and brimstone from the sky and causing various plagues. Similarly, we see the perpetrator to electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture pre-occupied with similar fantasies of unlimited power and brilliance. In showy displays that make their targets look foolish and stupid as is witnessed in people who carry out acts of bullying and ransomware attacks. Some victims of ransomware attacks, silently pay off those who victimize them out of embarrassment.

(3) God believes himself to be “special” and deserving of “special treatment” because he uniquely identifies with “special people of high-status” or “privileged institutions.” This was demonstrated in the book of Exodus 3:11–13 when God only chooses the tribe known as the Levites because they were considered “special” with special talents and skills and to which all other tribes were not considered. As a result, only the tribe of Levite was selected as “God’s special people.” I did not mention this in my paper, but I’m mentioning it now. This is a reference to a form of supremacy (white Klan supremacy) as well as its connection to the concealment of information as demonstrated in the Book of Job, in where Job was not privileged to the knowledge that Satan and God were engaged in a game using Job as a playing piece. Institutions like the CIA and the NSA do not make certain information publicly known. As a result, certain individuals are only allowed access to privileged information. Likewise, high-profile criminal cases may also conceal information from the public to protect the integrity of the investigation and certainly, criminal conspiracy and acts of organized crime carry out similar acts of concealment. By reducing the Targeted Individual to a shadow of his/her former self, the perpetrator can appear to be much more powerful.

(4) God is interpersonally exploitative. As a result, God is well versed in Game Theory. In fact, Satan is too! Written centuries before the writings of John Nash and Heinz Kohut, the Old Testament Book of Job incorporated theories rooted in Nash’s Equilibrium and Kohut’s Forms and Transformation of Narcissism. Certainly, Satan’s purpose was to transform Job’s narcissism by reducing him to a 10th of his former worth, thereby forcing him to make an alternate choice which was to turn his will against God. In the content narrative of Group (Gang) Stalking, people who report being targeted with electronic physical assault and psychotronic torture have said they “undergo a lifestyle change.” Some suggest the reason for their targeting is to move them into therapy groups where they may receive more social service support and financial grants.

(5) God possesses a sense of entitlement and unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations. When Job was enduring his suffering, God expected him to continue to be loyal and faithful even in the face of these terrible losses. In fact, God expected this of Job. There is no suggestion or implication of reciprocity in the fact that God must answer your prayers if you’re a faithful follower. Likewise, there is a similar pattern occurring with the Targeted Individual. In such cases, a person demonstrating forms of infantile anxieties are exacting punishments against a population of people for what appears to be assuaging the narcissism of the perpetrator. By utilizing advances in technology, the perpetrator creates for himself a counter-phobic object, a device used in a defensive posture against what may very well be phantasmagorical fears (Winnicott, 1971). For what does the Targeted Individual receive in return for his suffering? At least God, at the end of the Book of Job, restored Job’s health, gave him more children, and multiplied his financial status. It is as if the Targeted Individual is being used as a scapegoat (container) for the anger someone else’s feels about his unsolved problems.

(6) God lacks empathy and is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others. That God would enter into a wager with Satan over Job is evidence of his lack of empathy. The fact that God would place Job in the direct line of a firestorm from an evil malevolence clearly speaks of how much he truly cared about Job and Job’s suffering. In fact, God plans his entrances in such a way that they clearly place the other at a distinct disadvantage, leading them to confess to their deficiencies, insecurities, and insignificances. He appears to Moses as a burning bush that literally could lick his ass and burn it with fire. In the Book of Job, he appears as a whirlwind, perhaps a dirt devil that might increase in intensity literally throwing him yards away and killing him. We see something similar with electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture. The subjects suffering such torture are made to feel insignificant, inferior, and weak.

Here I listed at least six (6) of the nine criteria to make an official diagnosis of NPD. You need to only confirm at least five (5) for a formal diagnosis.

Some Thoughts on Bruno Bettelheim Symbolic Wounds and The Female Psychopath (Republished)

Transvestism is a type of perversion. A perversion is a psychological strategy. It differs from other mental strategies since that it demands a performance. The overall strategy operates in the same way for males and females. What makes all the difference between the male and female perversions is the social gender stereotype that is bought into the foreground of the enactment. The enactment, or performance, is designed to help the person to survive, moreover to survive with a sense of triumph over the traumas of his or her childhood. The perverse strategy is unconscious. The actor, or protagonist, knows only that he feels compelled to perform the perverse act and that when deterred from doing so he feels desperately anxious, panicky, agitated, crazy, even violent. The protagonist does not know that the performance is designed to master “events” that were once too exciting, too frightening, too mortifying to master in childhood. The performer cannot, dare not, remember those terrible events. Instead, his life is given up to reliving them, albeit in a disguised, symbolic form. An adult, male or female, who is compelled to perform a perverse ritual expends a great deal of energy and devotes a considerable portion of each day and night attempting to master and control emotions and affects that were overwhelming and uncontrollable in childhood. A perversion, for as long as it lasts — a decade or an entire lifetime — is a central preoccupation of the person’s existence. (4) (Photo: Ru Paul)

An anthropological study of an aboriginal tribal village’s religious rituals has uncovered symbolic enactments, staged seductions, in which the ruling male class attempted to deceive the females. This ritual was written about by Bruno Bettelheim in his book Symbolic Wounds. It is a staged deception in performing a coming of age ritual, the religious initiation rite of young boys which thereby transforms them into men. These men attempt to metaphorically steal the woman’s vagina through an act of penile subincision. This surgical procedure marks the underside of the penis with scaring that resembles a woman’s vulva. It has psychoanalytically been viewed as vagina envy. Thus, it has been interpreted as attempting to steal the procreative power of the female. This stealing of the procreative power is an act of established dominance over what psychoanalysts imagine to be the “castrating mother figure.” In men who rape, the resulting act of rape is the side effect of some psychic threat to his power. Once the rape has been completed his psychic state returns to a state of equilibrium until some other “perceived threat“ acts upon it. Thus we see the repetitive cycle of a behavior pattern that cannot be fixed until he relinquishes his delusional fears that dictate complete control. “What psychoanalysis actually reveals is simply that boys attach their first genital affection to those maternal adults who have taken care of them. They develop their first sexual rivalry against the other persons who appear to them as owners of the maternal figure(s).” That is, those subjects (biological females) who have been endowed with the same genital apparatus as the mother.

“I have come to understand that types of behavior that appear to be and that could be interpreted as expressions of the most violent hostility, of “the id in the raw,” are actually the result of frantic efforts by the ego to re-establish it’s (rational) control over a total personality overwhelmed by irrational instinctual forces.” ~Bruno Bettelheim, Symbolic Wounds

Little girls undergo a form of genital attachment to the affection of those maternal adults who have taken care of them as well. This has been theorized about in psychoanalytic theories addressing homosexuality. However, these genital attachments do not necessarily have to manifest as homosexual desire but can manifest as perverse strategies that “deal” with other women in intersubjective relations. Envy and jealousy are found at the roots of these theories as was uncovered in the male tribe members’ vagina envy. The metaphorical stealing of another woman’s sexuality has been seen in acts of men who rape women, in acts of disfigurementclitorectomy, and markings. These types of violent acts are predominantly done by males and have been historically dictated by religious ruling authorities. (1) But since we now know that predatory female psychopathic personalities are distinctly different than that of male psychopaths, it becomes imperative that we understand the social manipulations performed by these females. The female psychopath does not typically control her environment through violent acts of force as a means of quelling her anxieties and fears. Women approach the management of castration fears in a much different way. Hysterical anxiety was a disorder that was predominantly assigned to women. That is, in lateral jealousy in response to a fear of displacement by women living in polygynous societies, such as those of northern Somalia. The wife who fears replacement develops a ritualized mode of behavior which can range in a diverse variety of human behaviors. (2) Some of these behaviors may become morbid and sadistic modes of “dealing” with others in intersubjective relations. Since I’ve learned from other social scientists studying in the field of violence that the female psychopath maintains a high priority of impression management, it is no wonder that female psychopaths are more likely to get away with the antisocial acts they commit. The number one attribute of psychopathy is camouflage. These women are more likely to commit offenses against someone they know, rather than complete strangers. That is, someone they may already have an established intimate relationship with. The top three character traits may be pathological lying, conning and manipulative behavior, antisocial and criminal activity. Since competition is a very common human aspect of everyday living, as it is in many animal species, it makes sense these individuals would want to control their environments in antisocial ways. (3)

Women are caregivers, and may already be well versed in understanding their role in the social hierarchy of established power. Thus, establishing felt security may be an early learned social skill that provides the best method of success. They are, are they not, the guardians for the well-being of their husbands and children. Already groomed for second class status, it is this very status that supports their necessity to, not only utilize the best modes of behavior but find the best avenues that will promote her success.(5) It is, in my opinion, for this reason, women make excellent female intelligence operatives. Whereas men use brute force, women look for subtle angles and avenues that don’t require physical violence utilizing coercive control like sex or the physical attributes of her sexuality. (6) This has nothing to do with mathematical computation. Bees like honey. Honey traps are successful in capturing bees.

When the misfiring of genital attachment manifests in female psychopathy it represents a splitting of the psyche. This psyche splitting has been labeled the paranoid-schizoid position. (7) However, this only addresses one element found at the core of identity. There are many different personality disorders with varying character traits. Although personality disorders are considered part of the paranoid-schizoid position, a diagnosis like Borderline Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and Dissociative Personality Disorder will additionally reveal specific behavioral traits. In any event, the aboriginal tribe that was the focus of Bettelheim’s book clearly demonstrates a paranoid character trait in dealing with their female counterparts in attempts at establishing their power dominance.

When the misfiring of genital attachment manifests in female psychopathy it can manifest itself in one of two primary ways in terms of predominant expression; (1) primary masochistic (sadism against the self) or (2) primary sadistic (sadism against others). When primary masochism manifests itself in identity we see disorders like bulimiaanorexiaself-cuttingtrichotillomania, and the desire of the female to be beaten during acts of sexual intercourse (playing the bottom) in sex and bondage. It has also been postulated that women tend to be more masochistic by nature due to their desire to have children (self-induced pain that may repeat given the number of pregnancies and the self-sacrifice of motherhood. This same scenario of repeating pain is seen in women who enjoy sadomasochistic sex).

When primary sadism manifest itself what we see are acts that use passive-aggressive modes of violence against others. We witness staged seductions, enactments that incorporate pathological lying against another. Acts such as prostitution where the woman acts sexually interested to satisfy male sexual desire. These acts by women use their bodies as props in staged seductions such as entertainment acts of burlesque (exotic dancers). We also witness the conning and manipulation of people for personal gain. Attempts at bolstering one’s superiority by tearing down another with manipulative lies. (8)(9)(10)(11) We witness other modes of antisocial behavior as well that are typically seen in the narcissistic personalities of spoiled teenage cheerleaders who taunt and bully other girls. Except these female personalities are grown, adults. Cruel, callous, and unsympathetic modes of social actions in intersubjectivity relations. When females become envious or jealous over other females’ attributes or achieved successes we witness the public shaming of female personalities over social media regarding their parenting styles. It is almost as if the female psychopath says, “Well if I can’t have what she has, I’m going to destroy her image and reputation.” This enactment can be compared to the aboriginal tribe’s behavior discussed in Symbolic Wounds as the act of stealing the female’s sexuality through ritualistic enactment of penile subincision.(12) Except these psychopathic women aren’t stealing the genital apparatuses of their targets, they are attacking the female’s identity at the core. That is, by attempting to damage their reputations, image, and egos. This is equivalent to the stealing of their procreative power in an act of established dominance, much like rape. It is an attempt to overthrow them. This enactment is done in what psychoanalysts imagine to be an enactment of overthrowing the “castrating mother figure.” (13)

When these female personalities engage in violent fights, they typically do not impose or sustain any real injury. Pulling hair, pushing, shoving, slapping, and scratching with nails in envious or jealous fits of anger. Two of the main reasons female psychopathy may remain well hidden is because one, they are experts at manipulating and conning their male and female counterparts; and two, the injuries imposed rarely cross any criminal lines as the physical injury is minimal. Most people have a tendency to overlook small losses. Especially small losses of bruised egos which culminate in no real property damage. These female personalities may generate conflicts or high conflicts perhaps even an assault but since they are primarily victimizing the people they know, the people they know either tolerate it, get rid of them entirely, or confront the narcissistic psychopath. And since they are really good at impression management these psychopaths are very successful in conning others such as co-workers superiors into believing their lies.

It is my opinion that these female psychopaths go on campaigns to tear down another’s reputation. Social media and cyberbullying campaigns would be their desired mode of attack because it is passive-aggressive. These attacks are more difficult to uncover and many people, no longer wanting to be hassled, may just walk away from their social media platforms or have their accounts deleted. I believe Facebook traced the social media smear campaign of the 2016 election against Donald Trump to a Russian female. I don’t know if the Russian female was a bogus identity or not, but this may help prove my case.

We can interpret further through a reading of Chasseguet-Smirgel’s Creative Perversions and the anal-sadistic universe (sadism) in Chapter 3, Narcissism and Perversion the following quote:

“On the one hand with the help of certain mechanisms he rejects reality and refuses to accept any prohibition; on the other hand, in the same breath he recognizes the danger of reality, takes over the fear of the danger as a pathological symptom, and tries subsequently to divest himself of the fear.” (14)
