Monophrenic Monologue


the Best Victim

Many years ago locally a man I do not know at all spewed his contempt at me on the streets here saying,

Congratulations lady. You make a really good victim.”

Let me respond to that once again now.  Actually, stranger to me, who feels entitled to act out like that... I make a really LOUSY victim, as you are about to find out.

“Left handed people can use both sides of their brain at the same time, so they can usually process more information than right handed people.”
Mehmet Oz, M.D.
(Did you know that I am left handed? I wonder how many more left handed people than right handed people get labelled as compared to the general population? Did you know that I once described other people's idea of the meaning of 'psychic' as really just the ability to pick up more information than most people? Did you know that when I said something similar to a psychiatrist, and said I thought I got more information than most people, I got offered something for my delusions? It was something to 'reduce my awareness.')

I Recommend 

I recommend for psych students (and others) a few books available at our local public library. These are:

The Cure of Folly

and Daggers of the Mind: Psychiatry and the Myth of Mental Disease

by Gordon Warme, M.D.

I include these NOT because I agree with every word and in fact, I find much of this disturbing, but because they offer some insights into how the minds of psychiatrists have been trained to work.

Also available locally are:

Toxic Psychiatry By Peter Breggin, M.D.

Agnes's Jacket By Professor Gail Hornstein
A Schizophrenia Breakthough by Al Siebert, PhD.
Who was psychiatrized while TRAINING in psychiatry. 

I hope that these will help to get you to questioning and rethinking the psychiatric status quo.



Out of My Experience of 95

In the Beginning there was nothing

Then God said, “Let there Be Light”

...and there was still nothing

But now, there was a light on

So you could see It...

Switch Levels to Get Some Self Awareness

Instead of needing to “reduce” my awareness (and that of many others as well) to accommodate to your own need to feel “normal” and “superior”, switch levels of awareness. Concrete example: Instead of debating things like my age, as defined by “group consensus” try debating about WHY you are trying to define me by group consensus including things like my age, WH?Y you think you are “hiding” while you do it and act it all out in multiple versions, and WHY if asked directly, you DE?????NY doing ...

Human Life, While Concrete is ALSO a Metaphor

Jonah got swallowed by a whale. Paranoid Patty here got fished in too but then, hooked the whale instead, which turned out to be a real shark, rather than just a wolf in sheep's clothing. So she reeled it in. Now Jonah's invited for dinner and we are going to have a HELL of a good time, talking about how we cut bait and then roasted that shark, who tried to swallow us, by getting us to swallow HIS bait first. Now, we are going to swallow him instead!  (har har...quite the joke huh?) Life i...

Putting the Person in the Personal Experience

If I ever have a truly PERSONAL relationship again, rather than ones which I consider to be acquaintances, one where my PERSON is actually IN it, it will be one to one WITH THAT person.  It will NOT be as an object of observation and assessment BY a group, FOR another person ABOUT me. Can you see and hear the difference in MEANING there in terms of ''personal relationship''?  One must actually relate personally in one of those. OR Will you need to debate and discuss my SAYING that here, wit...

They NEVER Get the Point

That point being:   The dysfunctional group as a whole involve themselves in a power struggle, or dispute, between an original pair and then routinely DENY the existence of the group behaviour. Much of the time it was generated in the first place, BY a controller with a hidden agenda of domination, who “secretly” points at the one s/he wants to control, as being the source of the problem. The group involved then focuses on invalidating the target and creates chaos and confusion by defining t...

..But especially the ones in public housing.... A Hypothetical Reality... There are no 'secrets' kept here. In fact, it is much more likely that your relatively insignificant private chats will be built up from a grain of truth  into unrecognizable 'stories' by the time all the 'secret' keepers have passed them along to all the other 'secret' keepers. So if you decide, hypothetically speaking of course, to put on some grandiose performance  that reeks of bad acting in the building lobby for a...

Out of almost NOTHING.... Thinking about the return of McGyver just gave me an idea for a new psycho-drama type of TV show starring an est graduate, who for some STRANGE reason, heard his training as an instruction for power and control over everyone else- by using the limitless POWER of ambiguous abstractions in absolute terms, employed as a form of pseudo communication. No...can't call it “Limitless” as that name has been taken already. Hmmmm...let's see.... Oh! I know! “Conniver!” (almost...

Regarding the Speaking Monophrenese series

of articles here

...To the Splitting, Projecting, Denying "Normal"

This is a (probably) hopeless attempt to teach “Face Value Communication” to Those Who are Entrenched in the Long Time practice of Searching for Hidden Meaning where there is none .

I will make the attempt to explain the language and reasoning of the Monophrenic species, such as myself, using as clear and concise descriptions and definitions, as simply expressed as I can, and in as much pedantic detail as is possible. Hopefully this will help us to bridge the gap between the schizophrenic projectors[1] and the Monophrenic receivers, which currently tend to be seen and understood most often in opposite terms and with switched identities.  
I will try to explain to you what it is like to be from another planet like Monoterra (or at least to FEEL like you are from another planet) by using the most gut wrenchingly obvious language I can come up with delivered without giving in to the urge to scream it into anyone's face.
(We Monoterrians sometimes DO that as we tend to come to believe you Earthlings must be deaf as you don’t seem to be able to hear us. I have tried to tell some of my fellow “off world-ers’’ that shouting into the wind in the town squares is not working for any of us, no matter what planet we may come from, as it is defined simply as a ‘symptom’ and therefore meaningless to the observers. Some of them now believe I am on the ‘side’ of the Earthlings, while the Earthlings still tend to believe they too must protect themselves from me and my unwanted ‘awareness.’ 

What’s a Monoterrian to do? ...Well I will try this method here and see how it goes so stay tuned, no matter which planet you may be from...


[1] This I.D. should not be confused with the people labelled on Earth with the same term. from MY point of view it apples to the NON labelled people who are projecting their own split minds onto the people to whom they are applying the label. i.e. Psychiatrists are often ‘secret’ projectors.

Your Emotions Are Not Diseases

 They do not need to be eradicated. They are more like the brain’s OnStar system, used as guides to help you navigate your way through life. They signal you that something may be amiss and that there may be a better alternate route to take on your journey. It is up to you though, to LOOK at the map of your personal terrain and decide what may work better than the route you are currently following, in a way that will keep you from crashing and also avoid hitting anyone else along the way.
