And let us begin with a brief statement, and a simple challenge:
Challenge is to ask any mental health worker you know this question:
What is the MIND, and what does it do, and how does it do what it does?
The statement is this: In the early 1900s, B.F. Skinner, a behavioral scientist, introduced the oxymoron “Behavioral Psychology”. The essential purpose of “BP” was to eliminate the idea that Man has a MIND… quite apart from the brain. In the following quote of Skinner, by Evans, Skinner refers to the MIND as: “…the child of our past…”
The reason Skinner said this is that his own MIND [MIND can be researched here], was feeding the Left-Hemisphere of his brain Delusional Thinking [D-Think], that was intended to protect him from his own MIND which he [unknown to himself] feared intensely.
Skinner promised the field of “psychology” that if his idea was adopted, then no one would have to undergo a personal course of Psychotherapy any longer… since there was no MIND to be concerned about! Therefore, the only thing people wanting to work in mental health needed to do is to ‘intellectually’ memorize a list of behavioral symptoms, and then look at a list of illnesses that certain behaviors were thought to apply? The person within whom a conflict of the MIND was active was then told that he or she had “this or that mental illness”…
relating to the mind.
“mental faculties” The MIND consists of two subtle energy bodies existing within Man, neither of which can be perceived by the brain.
The term MIND is NOT the brain, and the brain is a physical muscle confined to the inside of the skull:
And, after fitting the list of symptoms to a person’s self-diagosis… the”psychologist” “sees” the listing of illnesses, and then intellectually tells a person he or she has a such and such illness. And then refers the person to a Psychiatrist [medical doctor] who then prescribes a drug for that “illness”. And low and behold… Intellectualism, the brain, and physical medicine was once again successful… in disguising a person’s actual MENTAL ILLNESS.
The drug simply cuts off communication between the MIND of the person with his/her brain. So, as long as the person continues to take the drug, the thoughts are blocked from awareness… and the illusion that all is OK is maintained.
The fact that no one ever seems to be “CURED” is just never mentioned. The fact that some of the SIDE-EFFECTS are much worse than the original problem is also never allowed to be related to either the drugs, the illness, or the failure of “MENTAL” health to properly deal with the emotional conflict of the MIND.
And… regarding Veterans, and the rising numbers of suicides by Veterans being “TREATED”! Who is RESPONSIBLE for this situation? I blame incompetent and improperly trained mental health professionals. And the reason I blame “BS&bp” [Behavioral Science and the oxymoron ‘behavioral psychology’] is that modern mental health denies, ignores, and pretends the MIND of Man has nothing to do with PTSD. When the FACT IS… the problem is entirely within the MIND [of the Veteran being improperly treated by a BS&bp trained mental health professional.
People trained in BS&bp [trained to ignore the MIND of Man] are taught that they can “treat” a MENTAL problem using the brain and drugs. Alas, the only thing they can do [quite unknown to themselves] is to mentally transfer their own deeply repressed fears to those of the Veteran, thus exacerbating the fear repressed within the MIND of the Veteran. Convincing the MIND of the Veteran that yes, indeed, whatever is wrong with the Veteran… is frightening the mental health professional. This leads to the MIND of the Veteran mistakenly assuming that the only option is suicide. This is the natural result of someone treating a Veteran who is not properly trained to do so. But, who cares, right?
As long as BS&bp is not exposed…
