Is it possible that people
perish because of ignorance, stupidity, poor judgment, distorted thinking
and other disorders of cognition?
I leave a good part of
that answer up to you. It would seem that those individuals who use
provocation as a communication tool are inviting disaster upon themselves.
Unfortunately, the use of provocation usually brings down a lot of people
who may be innocent targets.
Are these provocative people stupid?
Obviously, the answer
lies in the way the brain processes and interprets information. Many times,
perception, information processing and interpretation becomes
greatly distorted and would seem to kick in the self/other destructive
instinct. I call this the "perish instinct".
This is probably some
form of paranoia where someone perceives evil where it does not exist and
projects their own evil inclinations onto their targets. To pretend that
evil does not exist is a mistake. However, you could say that using the
word, "stupid," implies that an individual lacks certain social
emotional skills. Disordered individuals certainly show deficits in social
emotional relationships. There are social geniuses and emotional geniuses.
There are also social emotional ignoramuses. Does that imply dysfunction?
Possibly, if you consider the quantity of the dysfunction and the
destructive consequences of such lack of knowledge. Distortion is a real
problem in thinking.
We certainly need some
kind of consensus criteria for determining evil and the demonic. It seems
that the human mind is capable of manufacturing archetypes than mimic evil
figures from the past. These provocateurs seemed to revolve through history
and repeat the same old provocative, self-destructive themes.
individual who is immersed in the perish,
self-destructive instinct eventually provokes other people to destroy the
provocateur. This can be seen in some very serious blatant instances or can
be experienced in every day human situations on a smaller scale.
Some examples from individual cases and from the social
personalities and paranoid personalities are two examples where an
individual may show considerable intelligence and even genius; only to
regress into a mental illness where destructive provocation becomes a
problem. Destruction is the only outcome. It becomes a set
up as the targets of provocation eventually strike back and serve to
eliminate the provocateur. This can be seen as a form of victory, but at a
very high cost. Adolf Hitler was one such
provocateur and was even seen as a Antichrist
archetype. Saddam Hussein was also seen as a kind of savior destroyer, only
to bring the house down on himself and many other
innocent beings. As in the theme "history repeats itself in every
generation", the president of Iran seems to be a
reincarnation figure of the Hitler/Antichrist archetype.
How does this show up in everyday life?
Whichever way you wish
to look at it, you will see this provocateur acting out the demonic
archetype in marriages, interpersonal relationships, work situations and
politics. If you entertain the possibility of the archetype of the
messianic age, seemingly this mental health problem will go away as we all
bathe in an ideal world of peace. This would require healing on a massive
Is that possible?
Anything is possible.
But, to be honest, I am a little pessimistic. It would require a shift in
the multi-dimensional holographic structure of the universe. But, the holographic
process is too extensive for this discussion. I can inform you though
that extensive research and experimentation in holographic
therapy are being conducted at Psychotherapyhelp
and we will keep you informed of our findings and progress in this area.
