... of introducing my own theory of Homo Schizo. I have been working on these books at the same time as Mankind in Amnesia and the Jaynes book were in process. I think that the Jaynes book, to put it briefly, gives excellent material on hallucinations, it is a kind of small textbook with the latest materials on hallucinations and psychology, a similar survey of materials and explanations of the bicameral mind, of the pre-disposition of the left and right hemispheres of the brain to behave differently, but it's not good history and it has the shape of a treatise, but it's not really a treatise because it lacks theoretical integrity. It's not complex enough to explain human origins ...

... few that survive are highly evocative of his life and surround. Much of the following material is derived from Velikovsky's own unpublished autobiography, from the introduction to a 1933 collection of his father's works (in Hebrew), an interview with journalist Gerald Wilk, and previously untranslated works dealing with the Jewish problem (in Russian) and with various psychological issues (in German). Parental influence is generally regarded as an important determinant in one's perception and destiny- or "prospective trend" in Stekelian terminology. But in Velikovsky's case, the influence of Simon, his father, upon his values, goals and vision can hardly be overestimated. Throughout the nineteenth century, the "Litvaks, ...

203. Conditioning, Coping, and Concepts [Journals] [Kronos]
... graphically that the human, in the name of lofty conceptual postures, has been conditioned to hate that which is not law "in his father's house". Or, he may, out of outrage, become fanatic in his embrace of the opposite position. From the most critical scientific work of the thinking researcher, the facts of human psychology are pretty well understandable. Man must cope with a socio-political milieu in which each human is imbedded. Man develops ways and means totally unknown to himself in order to pursue his fullest potentials. Repression (organismically rapid) is a coping mechanism that may well be the most crucial. For man becomes what he is by virtue of what ...

... my belief that, if we trace the grand lines of Germanic ideology from let us say Fichte to Hitler, and then look at the experiences of central European Jewry during this period, and then narrow our focus to 19th-century Russian Judaism and finally to the individual, we will be able to perceive that everything Velikovsky wrote, his scientific and psychological books as well as his historical reconstructions, may derive from this single over-riding nexus. If true, this will place the Velikovsky story in a significant new light. To deduce Velikovsky's stance vis-a-vis Judaism, we begin with a number of conditions that exerted strong pressure upon him. The first and most obvious is the scientific climate in Europe ...

... set aside as holy books, that they cannot now be used to demonstrate the source of careless metaphysical assumptions by the human race- is equally ridiculous. The law of uniformity is one such metaphysical assumption. Analysis can demonstrate that human life devised this principle as a means of coping with unpredictable global physical catastrophe. The basic laws of both analytical psychology and behavioristic psychology demonstrate the avoidance phenomenon that humans develop in order to cope with massive anxiety. The hypothesis of racial amnesia is stated by Dr. Velikovsky: The memory of the cataclysms was erased, not because of lack of written traditions, but because of some characteristic process that later caused entire nations, together with their literate men ...

207. Earth Parturition and Moon Birth [Books] [de Grazia books]
... existing far from one another, small family bands accompanied by individual survivors of foreign groups. The collective memories of the groups recalled the vanished age of Urania and the civilizations that had been blasted from the Earth, drowned, or shaken to death by earthquakes at the approach of the Uranian planet. The memories were painful and unbelievable to the psychologically and physically depressed survivors. They were therefore distorted, suppressed, and selectively elaborated. The Moon was watched with fear and trembling the less so as it became regular in its behavior. Its routine and successive phases were marked down and the logic of a calendar moving through time was founded. Coincidentally, the Moon settled into a periodicity ...

... anthropocentrism and anthropomorphism, the world view of an insect is necessarily an entomologism, that of a fish an ichthyoologism, that of a bird an ornithologism, and so on. Here it may be useful to recall the system of the self and the other developed by George Herbert Mead.(43) In the light of his behaviorist social psychology, values are never entirely "subjective" or entirely "objective", never wholly in the subject alone or in the object alone, but in the ever-fluctuating and novelty-producing relationship between the two. With the possible and only partial exception of certain strictly idiosyncratic experiences, valuing and its consequent "values" are intersubjective, interactional and interrelational ...

... with the attachment of words to objects (nominalists), or with words to operations (operationalists). Others, their opposites, insist upon the correspondence of words to ideal images (idealists, Platonists); to them the contradiction is anathema. It is intolerable, unphilosophical, confusing, meaningless. To the anthropologist, psychoanalyst, and psychological linguist, however, it is the veriest grist for the mill.

... shared belief proliferate, we become less and less assured of national and international stability, and thus of local and private stability, and thus of stability itself. As a result, our buried ancestral catastrophic fears concerning past cosmic instability are aroused more actively than otherwise and threaten to come to the surface of our consciousness. We therefore need the psychological relief provided by the safe and comforting displacement of the soap opera, which substitutes for our actual fears, and, by creating an ultimately safe context for them, keeps them dormant. They are prevented from rising to consciousness, and our everyday lives are therefore not threatened. The soap opera is a collective survival tactic. We can ...
