    Blow The Movie Questions? Ok so the movie Blow (2001) was based on a true story and I want to know was Kevin Dulli (Max Perlich) Leon Minghella (Kevin Gage) real people in the real story of George Jung or just filler? I have done research and haven’t found any information on them
    Also how did Dulli and Foreal get Jung arrested again!

    MFS: Would You Thank A Person In This Situation? You were at the sea with your daughter and she is playing around and falls off the boat. In the water they are bull sharks. Out of no where a man comes and kills all the sharks and helps your daughter back into your boat. However when you take a look at the man you notice that he is George Zimmerman. Would you thank him if he saved your daughter?

    BQ: Would you thank the person if he were Dennis Rodman?
    BQ2: Would you thank the person if he were Kim Jung un?
    BQ3: Would you thank the person if he were Ron Jeremy?
    BQ4: Would you thank him if he were Lil Wayne?
    @cowabunga what about Lil Wayne of Mayatelandia? Is he a hero or a mayate?
    @cowabunga I would be sad, maybe they would meant to be with each other and I would have to find a new girl.
    @cowabunga if Lex rescued your girl and did that what would you do?
    @cowabunga girls have no loyal and are very shallow all they care about are black guys with big size. Shame that is the only thing girls care about is the size of the scholong.

    Are Some Psychiatrists TOO Psychotic To Be Taken Seriously? Psychological projection was conceptualized by Sigmund Freud in the 1900s as a defense mechanism in which a person unconsciously rejects his or her own unacceptable attributes by ascribing them to objects or persons in the outside world. For example, a person who is rude may accuse other people of being rude.

    Although rooted in early developmental stages, and classed by George Eman Vaillant as an immature defence, the projection of one’s negative qualities onto others on a small scale is nevertheless a common process in everyday life.

    Projection tends to come to the fore in normal people at times of crisis, personal or political, but is more commonly found in the neurotic or psychotic—in personalities functioning at a primitive level as in narcissistic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder.

    Carl Jung considered that the unacceptable parts of the personality represented by the Shadow archetype were particularly likely to give rise to projection, both small-scale and on a national/international basis.

    Marie-Louise Von Franz extended his view of projection, stating that: “… wherever known reality stops, where we touch the unknown, there we project an archetypal image”.

    The philosopher Ludwig Feuerbach based his theory of religion in large part upon the idea of projection, that is the idea that an anthropomorphic deity is the outward projection of man’s anxieties and desires.

    Bullying: A bully may project his/her own feelings of vulnerability onto the target(s) of the bullying activity. Despite the fact that a bully’s typically denigrating activities are aimed at the bully’s targets, the true source of such negativity is ultimately almost always found in the bully’s own sense of personal insecurity and/ or vulnerability. Such aggressive projections of displaced negative emotions can occur anywhere from the micro-level of interpersonal relationships, all the way up through to the macro-level of international politics, or even international armed conflict

    Jung writes that “All projections provoke counter-projection when the object is unconscious of the quality projected upon it by the subject.” Thus what is unconscious in the recipient will be projected back onto the projector, precipitating a form of mutual acting out.
    Based on all this, isn’t it rational to claim that some psychiatrists who ”see” depression and psychosis in many or all of the people who visit them and are absolutely ”certain” about their diagnoses could simply be PROJECTING their own psychological inadequacies?

    How can one be sure that the diagnosis given to him by a certified professional isn’t simply a projection of the professional’s REPRESSED psychosis and depression or anxiety and not his own?
    How can one know which psychiatrist is right and who is wrong and just DISTURBED?

      Dog Bless you, my child!
      That was very well done! Is that all your own work?
      You don’t know the half of it!
      But you are on the right track!

      I’ll see if I can dig this up for you, considering the unusually well crafted quality of your post, a study of various mental hospitals, state and pvt.
      Perfectly ‘normal’ ‘plants’ were placed in all hospitals.
      The hospital staff did NOT know that they were ‘plants’.
      In all the hospitals, the staff had them diagnosed and medicated, while the INMATES KNEW THAT THEY DIDN’T BELONG THERE! That there was nothing wrong with them!
      The ‘nuts’ could tell, the ‘doctors’ and other staff couldn’t!

      BAM! Found it;

      On Being Sane In Insane Places


      A very well written argument.
      Now that you know the dirty little secret, where do we go from there?

      What will we do if no one is really ‘insane’, is there are no ‘illusions’, no ‘delusions’?
      That, perhaps, there is another ‘paradigm’/theory that has been completely missed that can explain so much better?
      Perhaps we will no longer need to control and torture others?
      Perhaps ‘healing’ rather than punishment?

      Boy! One tiny ray of light can illuminate the whole world! *__-

    Is It Worth It To Move To Colorado And Start Growing Marijuana? Now that Marijuana is legal in Colorado, it seems like it would be a good idea to move out there and sell to dispensaries. I’m just not sure how flooded the market will be though. I don’t know how many people actually plan on becoming Pot farmers and if it would even be worth it? But hey, it is now a legal and growing industry with new opportunity’s.

      Funny, for no apparent reason, I remembered him just the other day!

      Curiously enough, I had always tried to actively shun comparative mythology and religion (after a brief encounter with them as an undergrad). … That is, till Joseph Campbell’s penetrating intellect and profound insights hit the public stage. … And by that I mean the absolutely captivating series of interviews that he did with Bill Moyers—sometime in the late 80’s, if I recall correctly—called ‘The Power of Myth’.

      It was a truly mesmerizing experience, and it grabbed the viewers’ attention like few other entertainment programs, with a scholarly flavor, had in the past (that is, with the exception of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos: A Personal Voyage — perhaps the most widely watched PBS series of all-time. BTW: I really enjoyed the PBS ‘The Civil War’ series, as well; but that came a few years later.)

      What is truly ironic (albeit interesting to me) was the fact that I had no natural affinity for the conceptual ideas that Campbell was presenting; at first, I felt he was grasping at mystic straws with a pizzazz! … Of course, it might have been the flair and excitement of his personal philosophy of “follow your bliss” that permeated his ideas which were captivating the audiences, too. … In any event, he was a master at presenting his views in a way that most everyone could found something of interest in them. … And the testament to his success was the surge in the sales of his magnum opus ‘The Masks of God’ — a book that I thoroughly enjoyed.

      But back to your question:

      Yes, Campbell’s exploration of Carl Jung’s idea of the archetypes in “The Hero With a Thousand Faces” and his attempts to delineate the common/underlying structure behind religion and myth was certainly a driving force behind George Lucas’ Hero’s journey in Star Wars.

      America clearly owes Campbell a debt of gratitude for his efforts in teaching Us about the ways and myths of other cultures, and the fact that our cultural/mythological traditions have far more in common that we had previously imagined.

      As for Y!A and all the Star Wars questions — well, insights into the inner workings of this h3llhole may well be beyond our intellectual penetration and/or emotional grasp! 😀

      P.S. Notice he was already short of breath during this recording. Even so, his enthusiasm was never tapered; you can see him come alive by talking about his passion — he certainly practiced what he preached and never stopped following his bliss.
