Managing Mania

Right Mind Optimization

“To be more than you can be” – el Loco Gringo

As it is necessary for the right mind to be able to transfer a concept to another mind for it to become “real” and relevant to coping with the world, It must get past the doorman. As the input function of the right mind has been crippled in most people by the taboo, the lattice, and other imprints the mind becomes clogged, constipated if you will, with unresolved issues. (No I’m not implying that psycho-therapists are douche bags)

This requires a mirror, a person who can “deep listen” on the patients own terms. It is not necessary that you agree, indeed, a valid challange will demonstrate that the concept has indeed been transferred which is the important thing, not that it be validated. If you want to use computer terms, this is a clean and pack.

This is of particular importance to the professional, who has not only his/her unresolved issues to deal with but those of the patients. A support group would seem to be crucial for maintaining the balance.

Bipolar manic/depression is just an idiot’s way of saying genius” – el Loco Gringo

It has already been discussed how depression is only the mind’s way of concentrating attention. So now I’ll put my 2 cent’s worth in on the mania part of this equation.

It must always be remembered that the mind is a chaotic system operating on the edge of instability. (see the chaotic mind) ”there is a thin line between genius and insanity” – Oscar Levant How very true. We’ll try to stay on the genius side of that line and avoid slipping into insanity.

There is no safeguard against spinout in the mind. Once someone has spunout, it will require a mirror to get him back. A sideslip with a regroup meme should do it. This will give him a space in his mind to be sane in. From this safe vantage, “deep listening” therapy (Rufus May) can be used to resolve the issues involved one by one. Once the whirlwind has been reduced to a dust devil, he can be instructed on how to use communication to resolve any remaining issues.

“What is a mirror?” you may ask. Thanks for the question. It goes to the crux of the problem. The left hemisphere operates as a serial processor, dealing with issues in a singular fashion. The right hemisphere however, operates as a parallel processor collating the input data into a form that the left hemisphere can quantify. (count) The associations in the right hemisphere do not become real until they become part of the survival strategy for dealing with the world. IE they have to be communicated to be considered as relevant to life and resolved. The person who has spun out has a whirlwind of concepts that he is unable to resolve without a mirror. That’s why god invented mom’s. They will listen to any seeming nonsense to help their son/daughter resolve THEIR issues. (unless mom is the issue of course) It must be remembered that these are THEIR issues and must be resolved by THEM in a manner that fits THEIR view of life. It is the act of communication alone that is solely responsible for giving them the ability to resolve their issues. Any input only adds another level of complexity to the problem. They are NOT seeking solutions. They are seeking a friend. But a friend will try help by injecting his truth into the conversation.

This then is the role of the psychologist. A professional friend. Someone who knows not to inject their truth into the session. Instead of “you should have… “ try “I would have been terrified, what did you do?”. You must pull, not push.


I’m beginning to get a handle on what a psychologist would call anxiety and depression. Since these terms have been stripped of meaning by psychobabble, I will use my own spinout and lockup. These are just two levels of the same mental activity. The result of a seemingly unsolvable problem of the victim. It is what happens with a top down thinking fail. TRUTH cannot be found so the mind is frantically searching for p-truth. As I mentioned before, for these p-truths to be accepted as relevant to interfacing with the world by the left mind, a concept must be transferred through the the victims algorithms AND the therapists algorithms to become relevant to survival. The image I get is of an octopus grabbing ANY data which may be even remotely related to the problem at hand and presenting them to the ANN for acceptance (or rejection). But for acceptance to occur a concept must actually be transferred from one person’s mind to another’s, else resolution is not possible. (It is not relevant) Talking to an idiot doesn’t work, nor does talking to a coffee table. The person must be sentient, IE a non-idiot. Lockup occurs when these concepts cannot be resolved, and they won’t be resolved until the concept is communicated. Resolution may and usually does involve discarding the concept so another can be sought. Only then can the victim resume searching for a resolution. The victim must find his own solution, in his own terms to his own problem in a manner which fits in with his coping mechanisms. Replacing his truth with your TRUTH is like throwing a bolder into the stream to correct the turbulence caused by the original stone. I posit that in some cases, Idiot psychologists are driving patients into insanity, who are then shot up with dopazine* and institutionalized. Deep listening, mentioned by Rufus May, is something I intend to explore. A therapist should be a professional friend, someone capable of understanding the victim without injecting his/her own TRUTH. That’s why god invented moms. He/she should pull, not push.

*Dopazine – any of a broad spectrum of psychotropic drugs which turn the victim into a dope. Also available in generic form as smartacide
