Soul sacrifice...

Quote of the Day:

If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.

That's nothing, I've been playing this game called 'Real Life' for years now with just my brain.

Psst Greg! figured out any cheat codes that help you get an extra life? :P

Man... I'd settle for learning how to downscale the difficulty level.

It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!

Found this comment in the Danger Room's thread:

Dave514(A semi-retired psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, dream therapist and spiritual counselor. My interest include travel, history, videography (video editing), defensive pistol shooting.) wrote:

"Some doctor claims he can cure PTSD by recreating the trauma with VR
goggles (and smells or vibrations or actors). One or two people are
interviewed, saying it works, but if you look at the study you find that
around 3/4 dropped out before completing the program. (implying they
couldn't deal with the trauma of the treatment/experiment/bullshit)."

I agree with you and the comments of Dr. Andrew Leuchter. As a psychotherapist, getting someone to relive this kind of major trauma including things like rape until they're desensitized is ridiculous. That's like saying to a person who was raped, "Hey let's relive it again until you really enjoy it. It's nuts. The horrors of war are even more terrifying.

I've worked with people who have PTSD and it is possible to, acting as a catalyst, allow them to help themselves through these traumas, and it takes time. As for dreams, which in this case are nightmares, they too can be addressed at the same time and in a much different way. A nightmare is a dream that tells the dreamer there is something that must be taken care of NOW. It'll keep repeating itself until the PTSD is taken care of.

As a Dream Therapist, what you are seeing with these contraptions, are psychiatrists who know little or nothing about PTSD and especially about dreams.

Sadly, I've found a major problem with veterans. They don't want to have treatment while still in service as it will blemish their record and they don't want to have it after they retire as they are of the opinion that nobody can help them unless they've been through what they've been through.

As a play producer Shakespeare was ideally suited as a front for someone that wished (or needed to be) anonymous. I'm sure De Vere never assumed anyone would take Shakespeare that serious would he lay claim to it in a most serious way during his lifetime, after all when would he have had the time to write all that eloquent work, considering all the known activities and obligations he had. Not to mention, where is he supposed to get his inspiration from, it's clear to me that someone like De Vere is a much better candidate and had a valid reason to be and in some way remain anonymous as his peers would have snubbed him. In fact in a way he had the last laugh, as his peers did commend his work be it through applauding Shakespeare.

Obviously the good people of Stratford will never agree and nor will a lot of others as they've been indoctrinated to believe it, pity they haven't been trained to think for themselves.
