  • Why mental illnesses are not mental illnesses – a neuroceptive perspective

    Why mental illnesses are not mental illnesses – a neuroceptive perspective

    Admittedly, the title is striking. Of course, emotional suffering is a mental problem and has processes in the brain. However, it will be difficult to claim that someone suffering from depression due to thyroid dysfunction has a mental illness. Once the thyroid dysfunction is corrected, the depression also disappears. The reason for the suffering was in the body and was corrected there. This principle applies not only in the case of thyroid dysfunction, but to most mental ailments. The health …
  • Why neither non-duality nor classical talk therapy can heal developmental trauma

    Why neither non-duality nor classical talk therapy can heal developmental trauma

    Non-duality is a term for the ONE. You as the one absoluteness of the self. Perfection in which everything is allowed. Developmental trauma is attachment trauma. It is the result of a failed connection attempt of an individualization-dissociation of the One with a reference being. One who is in samadhi does not have this problem, but who is permanently? Therefore, to heal an attachment trauma, a second or other is needed as a caregiver. Developmental trauma is the condition of …
  • Elements of the DMT experience in The OA (Pt. II)

    Elements of the DMT experience in The OA (Pt. II)

    This text contains spoilers. It assumes both the reception of the series and knowledge of a terminology related to the DMT experience. N,N-Dimethyltryptamine is an endegenous molecule which, when supplied exogenously, immediately produces deep visionary states and has enormous therapeutic potential, especially in combination with MAO inhibitors. The Netflix series “The OA” impresses with a complex multiverse story which does not appear to be artificial despite its mystical touch. The series takes place mainly in the everyday world, but structures …
  • The medicalisation of psychedelics

    The medicalisation of psychedelics

    Love was never meant to be contained. Adyashanti   Due to proven therapeutic success psychedelics are perceived by an increasing public perception in a new light that shines through the discrediting propaganda fog of the last decades. MAPS played a big role in this by freeing war veterans from PTSD (with the help of MDMA) and taking away the end-of-life anxiety of dying people (psilocybin). As long as the medical way is used as a trojan horse to change misconceptions …
  • 5-MeO-DMT – An overview

    5-MeO-DMT – An overview

    5-MeO-DMT is the strongest existing psychedelic, the only one in its league and illegalized in many countries, although the human body builds and contains it naturally. The following text is not a scientific representation of this topic since the research situation is inadequate. It serves as an information basis and discussion incentive and is by no means a recommendation for consumption. How does 5-MeO-DMT work? What’s important for the user? Is 5-MeO-DMT suitable for everyone? What distinguishes 5-Meo-DMT from other …
  • The Babadook: The immediacy of the symbol (explanation)

    The Babadook: The immediacy of the symbol (explanation)

    The Babadook is probably the best horror movie 2014. He is at least the most loving. His story is about the love of a mother to her child and the love of the child to the mother. The plot is a symbolic-analogical, representative-visual-auditive translation of what happens in the subconscious mind of the protagonist. Horror movies especially scare us when they touch something deep in the psyche that worries us, in contradiction to our conscious ideals. It is not the …
  • Fight Club: The spiritual fight of Tyler Durden

    Fight Club: The spiritual fight of Tyler Durden

    Let’s delve into the spirituality of Fight Club. Tyler Durden, the protagonist of the film, is an unobtrusive representative of an average citizen in the capitalism during the turn of the millennium. He is dedicated to security of civilization and financial self-esteem. As an insurance commissioner for a large car group, he has to assess whether recalls of faulty and therefore potentially deadly cars are likely to be profitable for the company. Their policy is that they are only to …
  • Another Earth: Forgiveness as a gravitational field

    Another Earth: Forgiveness as a gravitational field

    The earth in Another Earth attracts a supposed copy of its own while the motive for forgiveness is the gravitation of the film. Rhoda Williams caused as the protagonist a car accident with a fatal outcome, which ended a whole family life. John Burroughs, a former professor and family father, has been in a coma for a long time, and afterwards he is depressed and an alcoholic. After she served official punishment, Williams feels inwardly cold and derealized and lies …
  • Breakthrough – Similarities between the plot of contact and the subjectively experienced effect of DMT

    Breakthrough – Similarities between the plot of contact and the subjectively experienced effect of DMT

    In the film Contact (1997) the protagonist Ellie Arroway makes contact with an extraterrestrial intelligence as a part of the SETI project. She gets plans for a construction that makes it possible to travel to their planets. The vehicle is being built and Arroway is allowed to try it out. What she experiences matches in an astounding number of points with anecdotal reports of the effect of n,n-dimethyltriptamine (DMT) on the human mind. DMT is presumed to be contained in …
  • Enemy: Explanation (analysis and interpretation)

    Enemy: Explanation (analysis and interpretation)

    Although Denis Villeneuves Enemy is strictly composed and each scene and sentence is semantically loaded on a deeper level, a rational, coherent interpretation of the film is hardly possible. For this he plays too much with the non-fulfillment of the spectator’s need for a complete solution. But most of the parts of this puzzle can be explained and combined into a meaningful picture.  Chris Stuckman has already worked the cornerstones of a plausible reading in his analysis. Enemy is about …
  • Fight Club: Suffering as a condition of progression

    Fight Club: Suffering as a condition of progression

    As so often, Slavoj Žižek is right when he says that the real issue of Fight Club is not resistance, but the fact that one has to suffer in order to reach consciousness and freedom. Freedom in late capitalism means first of all taking what is in the way of freedom (“Only after we have lost everything, we have the freedom to do everything”). One must be able to dispense with ideological accumulation and not to define itself over material …
