a boy who sprouted on a farm and grew up in a small kansas town, the
never occurred to him.....he was too busy playing with neighbor kids
throwing bowling pins in an aimless game and bouncing on a big inner
tube....yet all those years he knew there was something about those
church services at 9th and hubbard where he squared off for a fistfight
on the wet grass between sunday school and church---and fell down
breaking his arm before he was baptized in a cow tank (or was it horse?)
he just didn't get it....
he was always in church when the doors were open---and the truth was
leaving his family and '55 chevy and joining the navy he started "drifting"
away---ever soooo s-l-o-w-l-y --- and didn't even notice one thing
led to another and before long he was bound and couldn't see the chains...
still didn't get it....
years ditty-boppin' as a squid and he went to college but didn't know
why before long he was married and became a psychologist spewing great
wisdom (except deep down he knew better) and he had two kids and at
least one client thought he was a jerk (he was not a "normal" child)
and he got involved in occult
activity and some of his clients had weird experiences and told
him and he didn't know why....
he still didn't get it....
he bought the conventional psychiatric thinking and went to unconventional
seminars and picked up undesirable entities and picked up the Bible
every 10 years or so and thought he was god cause jung and yoga and
all that said he was and he got more miserable and oppressed and divorced
his wife and his daughter was hurting and his son who was 8 at the
time left a message on his answering machine saying "dad please come
HE STILL DIDN'T GET IT!!!
one day he wondered what
does the Bible say and he read john
14:27 (quite by "chance") and literally felt a load lift.
he still didn't quite get it...
he felt terrible and finally his spiritual eyes started opening as
he sat in (of all places) a bar (cause God can get our attention any
time any where)
he started to get it...
next morning (a few hours later) he went back where the truth was
preached after being away 21 years and making a mess of things and
he gave his life to Jesus
he got it!!!
that's when the demons intensified their efforts to seduce and deceive
and then to kill him.........(of course they don't exist------ DO
took a while and the struggle was terrible and he almost died but
he was set free from them....and eventually he noticed others had
trouble with them too and the voices he used to think indicated "psychosis"
now told patients to stay away from him or hurt him and things worse
than that......(although some voices are alter personalities) and
his colleagues think he's nuts cause he knows alters and demons exist
(he does know other things too contrary to what they say) and he knows
they can be picked up in lots of ways and his work is
those who scream tolerance and multiculturalism and diversity and
they're afraid and afraid he'll set psychology back 2000 years so
he put together a survey
(point and click here with the little arrow that turns into a hand)
of some demonic antics and places where spiritual chiggers can be
picked up and he thought about writing a "scientific" article about
"dissociative trance disorder" where it is noted the "presumed possessing
agents are usually spiritual in nature . . .(...demons) and are often
experienced as making demands or expressing animosity" but this and
other categories did not get included in DSM-IV because.........
was insufficient information to warrant inclusion of these proposals
as official categories or axes in dsm-iv" (translation: they don't
believe in malevolent spiritual entities).
there may be "hope" because "they" also said in appendix B "it is
hoped that ... research will help to determine the possible utility
of the proposed categories and will result in refinement of the criteria
sets"!! It could happen (!!) because it looks to him like some people
out there somewhere may be close to getting it or things like the
"disorder" mentioned above and many symptoms noted in the "glossary
of culture-bound syndromes" wouldn't be listed in dsm-iv
diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders-IV (the bible
of all "psychiatric" disorders currently known to man including the
dreaded caffeine-related disorder not otherwise specified)--- horror---shock
(make mine hazelnut)
the little Kansas farm boy hickoid decided to put the survey
out on the web for the world to see and it can be examined and used
and subjected to (bow down) "rigorous scientific testing" and maybe
he can find out if a condition he dreamed up called "demonically-mediated
dissociation" (DMD) is real or a figment of his caffeine-demented
gets it now...
it is pretty wild)
he wants to see what can be figured out and he wants other people
to get it too--
it's too late...
sometimes he thinks about that farm in "the hills" and the car that
rolled down the hill and hit the fence near the windmill in the yard
where the tornado came through and he cried.....
