MooPig Brain Industry :: "Call me Crazy, but is that Brain Abuse?"

"All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Up until recently, self awareness was our 'key' to being human. Now we consider Orcas and Honey Badgers as self-aware. Your pet ferret is probably as self-aware as Senator Boehner, which is not saying much. Humans have tagged themselves with a badge that is not earned.

Humans have mustered energies into creating themselves as monsters. In two ways we humans have missed the boat: 1) by not embracing human imperfections, 2) making imperfections our standards of success.

Greed, avarice, self-image, ego, or any of the seven deadly sins are what money changers and their ilk depend on for their trade. Humans feed off other humans by passing judgment on each other. I really don't want to proselytize any reader of this, rather I want to save people with "mental conditions" some of the anguish they encounter at the hands of predators.

In other words, if it sounds right, chances are it is right, regardless of how we have been led to believe. Savvy? No? The opposite is also true: if it sounds wrong, it probably is wrong. Here following is an opposition article about mental illness that might open some corridors:

Non-Conformity and Creativity Now Listed As A Mental Illness By Psychiatrists | Collective-Evolution: "“The nail that sticks up will be hammered down.” – Japanese Proverb

"...Is nonconformity and freethinking a mental illness? According to the latest addition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, it looks that way. The manual identifies a mental illness labelled as “oppositional defiant disorder, or ODD. It’s defined as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior.”

"...It’s also included in the category of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The manual is used by psychiatrists to diagnose mental illnesses, and it seems that with each new issue a new, made up mental illness is added to the list. This isn't something new, in the Soviet Union, a systematic political abuse of psychiatry took place and was based on the interpretation of political dissent as a psychiatric problem.  Mental illness has been used for political repression, those who were/are non-conformant and do/did not accept the beliefs of authority figures (like government agencies) face labels that do not represent them at all, and have no scientific backing what so ever..."

The referenced article claims:
"...It’s quite shocking how medicine is convinced that the origins of mental illnesses are to be found in biology, when over three decades of research have not been able to provide any proof. There are no tests available for assessing the chemical status of a living person’s brain. Many psychiatric ‘disorders’ aren't even real, we've just been convinced that they are. This is done to keep society in check, make money, and one method of controlling the masses to prevent them from thinking outside the box..."
Brain specialists still do not know very much about how our brain works; thus, those same brain doctors have even less knowledge of how all the brains in God's animal kingdom function. A Washington Post article observed that, if Mozart were born today, he would be diagnosed with ADD and “medicated into barren normality (Andrew, Oct 8, 2010. LINK) ...”

Considering the fragility of the brain itself, in that it is not surrounded by muscle, cartilage, or massive bones, how can we go on battering it around, until it is bruised and dysfunctional? Your brain must be the control center for the senses as eyes, ears, nose, taste, tactile pick up stimulus. With newer brain scanning equipment that shows brain activity over time, we have some idea of how involved our brains are. We don't use only 10% of our brain as is commonly thought. Our brains keep busy, using as much processing capacity as it can to get us through our modern days and nights.

The writer of the referenced article, Arjun Walia, says:
"...I joined the CE [Collective Evolution] team in 2010 and have been doing this ever since. There are many things happening on the planet that don't resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It's been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation (April 7, 2014 by Arjun Walia.

Mark McGwire proved that performance enhancement made him a success. It turns out McGwire took his baseline ability and enhanced to a baseline+. So brain doctors are toying with brain performance enhancements, but can they define a baseline human brain? Call it Brain Industry, or call it Transhumanism, Human+, elevating the human condition; it will make no difference because we don't know yet what to enhance, and predator humans will continue to develop even stranger methods using the seven deadly sins to control outcomes. I call it brain abuse.

NEXT WEEK: More Brain Industry -- Transhumanism, a Definition
" ... Simply put, transhumanism is the process of consciously improving oneself, or a group of people, beyond the limitations of "baseline" humanity, and thereby create a new, post-human species. Without that conscious desire to exceed humanity, one is neither a transhumanist nor a transhuman. One can be a technophile, or a cyborg, or genetically enhanced, but unless that is coupled with the goal of moving beyond "humanity", it is not transhumanism. There is a reason that a common transhumanist symbol in the early days was (H. JUNE 1, 2013. LINK)
