101. Different Personalities: Different Brainwaves [Science Frontiers Website]
... This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Different personalities: different brainwaves Psychologists have always wondered how a single brain could harbor several personalities, as is the situation in the so-called MPD (Multiple Personality Disorder). Are the different personalities really separate physiologically? Are they faked? Psychological testing of the separate personalities, conducted at different times when each personality was 'in charge,' seemed to indicate discrete personalities, even though one personality might know of the existence of one or more of the others in the same brain. Brain-wave tests were even ...

103. Some Highly Focussed Minds [Science Frontiers Website]
... savants, but the rest of us have our minds spread too thinly. We are in the majority, so the autistic savants usually end up in institutions while we plod along outside. (Rimland, Bernard; "Inside the Mind of the Autistic Savant," Psychology Today, August 1978.) Comment. We may speculate that the capabilities of the autistic savants are inherent in all of us, awaiting only some key. From Science Frontiers #6, February 1979.© 1979-2000 William R. Corliss Other Sites of Interest ... numbers in their heads instantaneously or give us calendar information far in the past or future without the blink of an eye. But autistic savants are also prodigal in the fields of art, music, and mechanics. No one knows how they per-form their feats, although psychologists speculate that their minds are intensely focussed on their special skills to the exclusion of most everything else. A few "normal" people, such as Gauss and Ampere, have matched the capabilities of the autistic savants, but the rest of us have our minds ...
104. THE DISASTROUS LOVE AFFAIR OF MOON AND MARS: INTRODUCTION [Quantavolution Website]
... . It was an awesome tragedy to him and others, which could not be recalled without pain, fear, and distortion. It is to be expected that the life of survivors of worldwide natural catastrophes would be fearful and turbulent. Hence I argue that the social psychology of the Homeric Greeks is framed in a concept of mania and madness, rather than in the conventional view of a primitive people gradually achieving a higher culture. Further, as on Earth so in heaven, there must be signs of the cosmic disasters of the ... witnessed as a prior catastrophe in the skies. Chant and catastrophe, dance and disaster seem to be historically linked. Can a dance and poem be a piece of astronomical history, tightly, not vaguely, related? If they are, then an idea that many psychologists have considered: that humans have a tendency to suppress the memory of terrible events, but also are somehow compelled by unconscious psychic forces to reenact the events- this idea is supported by our theory. It appears that the reenactment may take place through religious rites ...

... called by both titles. A hero of the libertarian left, he is also a villain of the authoritarian right. Whatever title is finally bestowed on him by history, he will unquestionably be seen by the future as having fathered some of the most original and influential psychological ideas of the twentieth century. He is personally largely responsible for the whole shape and direction of non-Freudian psychotherapy as it is practised today. And while the authoritarian ideas and talk-oriented approach of Freud are questioned and largely abandoned, Reich's democratic, libertarian body-oriented style of ... the patient to heal himself is recognisably the dominant approach in psychotherapy today. Reich more than any other single individual gave rise to the revolutionary atmosphere of the 1960s and the revolutionary aspirations of the 1960s generation; politically, socially, sexually, psychologically. But another, darker part of the received image of Reich is his obsessional belief in 'bions'-- corpuscles of energy that he believed to exist everywhere-- and his conviction that his black box 'orgone accumulators' could cure cancer-- beliefs that took him far beyond the ...
106. Holocaust for Lucifer [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... (Typhonians), and kept brutally and mercilessly under their yoke for over 400 years. The hate for these Hyksos, the Amalekites of the Israelites, and for their creator (though this had also to be honoured with sacrifices) will be passed on at all psychological levels. "How art thou fallen from heaven. O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!" (Is.14:12) describes the last event, which turned the comet ( ... by dreams of a perfect world the participants in the following discussion are, when faced with the audience's questions: HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN? WILL IT HAPPEN AGAIN? WHAT SHOULD WE DO? And none of those involved, none of the specialists- not even the psychologist himself!- demands that an analyst should search in the past of the human collective for the underlying stimulus. Sigmund Freud founded the psychoanalytical method on the individual; the one-generation-younger Immanuel Velikovsky followed his example on the collective. His Revision of Ancient History, deriving ...
107. Deathbed Experiences Laid To Rest [Science Frontiers Website]
... expected at such a crucial moment. Thus, death-bed experiences reveal nothing of the territory beyond the grave. Alcock does maintain, however, that these various altered states of consciousness are very curious and well worth further study. (Alcock, James E.; "Psychology and Near-Death Experiences," The Skeptical Inquirer, 3:25, Spring 1979.) From Science Frontiers #8, Fall 1979.© 1979-2000 William R. Corliss Other Sites of Interest SIS. Catastrophism, archaeoastronomy, ancient history, mythology and astronomy. ... life, encounters luminous beings, departs his body to view friends clustering around, and so on. What to make of it all? Is heaven or some sort of after life just beyond death's door? Alcock's analysis is very revealing. He first describes several well-known psychological states: out-of-the-body experiences, hypnogogic sleep, hallucinations, and the so-called mystical experience. He concludes that the full spectrum of deathbed experiences can occur any time, not merely during the final moments of life. Nothing unique happens at death's door, merely the altered ...
108. Velikovsky at Harvard [Pensee]
... of the moon and planets are all "wrong." Velikovsky reviewed the anomalies which, from one discipline to another, lend support to his belief that global paroxysms convulsed the Earth in historical times. In cosmology, celestial mechanics, geology, evolutionary theory, and psychology he questioned assumptions--"of Victorian vintage"--which have remained unchanged despite the accumulation of evidence against them. Finally, of the students of religion he inquired: "Why was Jupiter --not as bright as the sun and not as important for our sustenance ... continued in peace and stability since time immemorial. But the real tale is different --a tale of destruction and terror. "I have only said, 'Know yourself; know your past.... "The cause of the opposition to me was in great part psychological: my critics could not accept my bringing their unconscious to consciousness." Concluding his lecture on an offbeat, Velikovsky recalled the remarks of an archaeology professor at Southern Methodist University: Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision, the professor warned the nation, has caused more damage ...
109. Science-Fiction and Collective Amnesia: "Dragon's Egg" [Kronos $]
... KRONOS VII:4, pp. 1-39. 10. I. Velikovsky, Worlds in Collision (N. Y., 1950), passim and pp. 298-300. See also L. M. Greenberg and W. B. Sizemore, "Cosmology and Psychology," KRONOS I:1, pp. 33-50; and the articles by T. Ferté, D. Griffard, and J. Kroth in KRONOS VII:1, pp. 3-30. \cdrom\pubs\journals\kronos\vol0801\085egg.htm ... "climax". Good fiction is, by its very nature, catastrophic. Uneventful lives drifting on wide, placid streams into forgetful oblivion- bore readers. Instead, we want to see those lives shattered by unusual events, sudden failures of character, or long-hidden psychological quirks which some deus ex machina dredges to the surface with cataclysmic results. Catastrophism inheres even in definitions of comedy. In The Taming of the Shrew, for instance, Lucentio- at the end of the play sums up the comic action he has just experienced ...
110. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 11: CHANGING INTERPRETATIONS [Quantavolution Website]
... for Ariadne. To Ariadne, Bacchus is not only death, but life. He effects her transformation from a deserted maiden to a goddess. It is apparent from the above summary that the opera is an example of the restatement and interpretation of a myth as a psychological experience, in terms adapted to the intellectual climate of the time and place. Death, for example, is presented not as physical extinction but more as a 'rite of passage'. It is the death of the love of Theseus for Ariadne which makes Ariadne ... . The apparent contradictions that von Hofmannsthal and Strauss portray in the behaviour of Ariadne result from the ambiguities in the character of the god Dionysus. He is thought by many today to be the god of life, of death, and of renewed life, not just psychologically, but in a physical and material sense, as living objects die and new life springs from them. But Dionysus is no mere vegetation god. It is not a matter of a plant, animal or human being dying, and new life being nourished by ...
