Dr. Tom Zinser, Clinical Psychologist on Difference Between Darkness and Evil |451|

Chester! Thks so much for posting John Cleese's interview on Rebel Wisdom. He was on a panel taking comments about the range of subjects in the University of Virginia's Division of Perceptual Studies. This woman stood up & began this rapid-fire recount of how "f--ked up" her life had been before she ...blah...blah...F--k, etc It was so vulgar of an account of her crisis & renewal that it silenced the PhDs & researchers & Cleese had the most shocked & dumb-founded look on his face that it was PRICE-LESS! This account of Cleese's severe discomfort at the coarse comments is a way of showing how is he is steadfastly honest & forthright in his dealing w/ the public. In my case, I would have masked my revulsion at such a choice of words & written it off as her right of self-expression. This is exactly what he means when he says political correctness has been twisted into something bad, not an avenue to encourage people to be kind or considerate. I also really enjoyed his sharp denunciation of people who can't tell the difference between joking satire of horrible racist naming-calling & actual bigoted language. We humans really must strive to return to a balance regarding the left & right hemispheres of our brains.
 
In the same vein Dr. Paul J. Leslie talks, on the Paranormal Podcast with Jim Harold, about his one "anomalous experience" during his professional career that changed everything, sending him down the paranormal rabbit hole to research other anomalous exeriences within psychotherapy.

This isn't meant to be SPAM but another example of therapists experiences of phenomena unexplained by modern science/medicine.

The first half of the interview with the anomalous story is very interesting, the second less interesting, but overall worth exploring:

Blue Moon, thanks for the links. I will investigate both. I have been reading a lot of short true crime stories & am struck by the variety of variations upon one theme: murder is justified if it gets you what you want. I can't think of a more brutal way of showing how utterly seductive WANTING something deeply to the point of obsession & beyond brings people to most horrible ways to achieve it. I wonder how many actually ever come to grips w/ what led to their choice?
