Mood Disorders: Solution States

solution-states-450

In my philanthropic work with persons with mood disorders I have come to see a structure to mood.  Mood is affected by how we react to the stress of a problem and this puts us into a solution state.  People have a range of mood states that extend from the suicidal (nullity), stable (singularity) and psychotic (plurality).  Stress pushes us either upward or downward from a singular state.  This is not a linear transition, but an exponential Lorentz transformation that ultimately forms a bell curve (if you give this diagram another half).  Consequently, you have unipolar and bipolar individuals who experience a wider range of moods than the majority.

I have been doing considerable research and experiment regarding psychiatric classifications over the past three years.  In particular, bipolar affective disorder an unipolar affective disorder and have reached the following conclusions:

  • psychiatric states are dependent upon how an individual reacts to stress when encountering a problem
  • a non-polar individual encounters multiple solutions (stable), which I call singularity
  • a unipolar individual encounters zero solutions (suicide), which I call nullity, or one solution (stable), which I call singularity
  • a bipolar individual encounters either zero solutions (suicide), which I call nullity, one solution (stable), which I call a singularity, or infinite solutions (mania), which I call a plurality

Both unipolar and bipolar individuals enter nullity states, singularity states  and plurality states due to avoidance of a Maslovian need, a complex.

Neither medication, hospitalization, incarceration nor electrocution (ECT) are the solutions to a complex.

Solving a complex and consequently the nullity, singularity or plurality requires concerted peer support, exercise, nutrition and sleep at state onset until the complex is confronted by the individual and resolved.  Upon resolution, a normal emotional range is restored.

If you read the work of Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D. you will discover the “spirituality” you seek, the “good” you seek, is in the right hemisphere of your brain. The left hemisphere of your brain is discrete processing. The right hemisphere of your brain is concrete processing.

In fact, in my work with people with mental health problems (the word “issues” is bullshit) I find that unipolar (depression) and bipolar (manic-depressive) people appear to be either severely left brain dominant in the case of unipolarity or alternating between left and right brain dominance in the case of bipolarity. There is no physical or chemical evidence of any difference between a “stable” person, a unipolar person and a bipolar person. Stress simply pushes mental dominance to the right or left hemisphere.

Propaganda: Lions for Lambs

Lions_for_Lambs

I have never reviewed a moving propaganda before, but I thought since I watch it all, why not tap in.

Lions for Lambs is a very interesting attempt to rationalize going to war against two countries whose leaders decided to bite the hand that fed it.  First against Osama Bin Laden, then Saddam Hussein.  The only true words in the entire movie were, “Rome is burning”.

I don’t mind being called a “conspiracy theorist”, because, first, I concluded there was a conspiracy and second, theory is based on scientific observation and experiment.

You may not agree, but 9/11 was prepared for, allowed and cleanly executed.  The twin towers and the adjacent buildings were felled by demolition by the incumbent powers to incite Americans to war.  Doing so did not require a large group of people, just a small backroom fraternity.  Let’s call them the Fight Club.

This set up things for the attack of Afghanistan, followed by the really big lie:  The incessent repetition, and little more, of weapons of mass destruction paranoia until the country was psychotic enough to attack Iraq.  It wasn’t a war on terror.  It was a war based on terror.

So, six years later, we have Lions for Lambs.  With Meryl Streep doing her trademark crying jag, this time for all the American cannon fodder in the middle east.   The rationale of continuing the offensive?  World War against China whose allies are the Al Quaeda in Pakistan, the Iranians, North Korea.  The new Axis.  This is all sprinkled in amongst a call to raise an American civilian army little different than the pre-war force in Nazi Germany building the Autobahns and marching in formation with shovels.

Obama is currently changing the American legal system systematically to create a judicial system for future crime using the moniker “Rule of Law”.

America is preparing for war.  They are preparing to put a general into the next Republican Presidential seat or an actor called Tom Cruise.

Hey, young America, grab your shovels, the Long Marchers are on their way.
