"The most dangerous psychological mistake is the projection of the shadow on to others; this is the root of almost all conflicts." -Carl Jung

It feels like we're living through an era of extreme projection by the most nefarious sorts. But the truth is simply that we're stepping out of an era in which mass projection was successful insofar as it was cost effective.

These days, one person documenting a contradiction can quickly demonstrate proof that can spread as virally as the lie.

Once you recognize the pattern, you begin to see it often. It's ubiquitous among those whose power depends on control. The psychological profile of the Kunlangeta is stamped on society through the flaws in the organization of our economic incentive structures. Technology's (a)symmetry problem ensures the result, encoded in a mind virus, implanted in the youth.

Maybe pot smoking is the variable that suddenly changed everything just recently? Or temperatures rising? Maybe somebody should check out the heart attack rates closer to the equator. That would be genius!

Just so we're clear on the whole myocarditis thing, I have never personally seen a single case in 13+ years in emergency medicine. Not one. Pericarditis yes. Do they occur? Sure. But not like this. Pediatric strokes? Come on now.

Succinctly Phrased
I'm no expert in Jungian psychology, but my test for psychological concepts is how they grow on me as I meditate on them. Maybe I'm suddenly projecting when I see projection everywhere? Or maybe it really is all getting louder. Louder means the footsteps are getting closer.

Confession through projection. And a total lack of self-awareness that would be funny if it weren’t so sad.

I do not think most people fully appreciate the disinformation campaign taking place right now in right-wing media to de-legitimize Biden as President-elect. It has totally saturated coverage. It's everywhere.

I recently subscribed to VivaFreiBarnes at Locals.com. I find Frei and Barnes to be crisp and educational. Even if by some strange twist I never again find any of their discussions compelling, the succinct phrasing of this concept, which is part of the mass psychosis unraveling, is pure gold. This is another example of what I see as "new media as educators/education", where the masses can reject the mainstream media for a combination of education and reality after coming to grips with various flavors of Gell-Mann amnesia. Viva Frei may have popularized the phrase "confession through projection", though I haven't found out for certain whether he was the first to use it. Either way, it's a t-shirt now.

at first, it it seemed kind of weird that all the vaccine guys were now starting to make heart drugs.

but then i took a look at the news and they seem to be saying that pretty much everything causes heart attacks now.

boy, they sure do know how to get in ahead of a market!

you’d need to get up pretty early in the morning to get the jump on these guys!

(but i guess maybe that’s dangerous now too?)

The trauma of living through a genocide

When one is in the midst of trauma it is often impossible to step back and see the full picture. Over time abuse and trauma become normalized as ‘just the way things are.’ So I think it is important to pause for a moment to note that: a child having a heart attack during a math class on Zoom, athletes in the prime of life collapsing during the middle of a match, a news anchor having a stroke live on camera, a comedian collapsing on stage and fracturing her skull — NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE NORMAL.

The FDA, CDC, and mainstream media — who all know exactly why this is happening — have turned to the ‘autism defense’ that they’ve been using for 35 years. They claim that ‘this is normal — healthy young people have always had heart attacks and strokes and died for no apparent reason.’ If they are feeling particularly sadistic that day they will add that these heart attacks and strokes ‘are actually something to be celebrated because it shows that we are just more aware of these things — and hence more just and loving than ever before(TM).’

So I think it is important to do a reality check from time to time to state that:

So if you are exhausted, angry, and feel anxious all the time like you are being hunted — that makes sense — this is what it’s like to live through a genocide.

jeez you guys, now it looks like global warning causes vaccine injuries!

it sure is getting dangerous out there…

so, i was reading in this psych textbook about how “there is no limit to the creativity of the hallucinatory landscapes the human mind can create for itself to avoid accepting a simple obvious truth.”

but it kinda seemed like mumbo jumbo to me.

but jeez you guys, they weren’t kidding around, were they?

NEJM: Global Warming Causes Stillbirths, Birth Defects, Infant Heart problems
Finally you can laugh a bit ...

Financing of such authors by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, obviously, is nothing to worry about.

Lol, what on earth could have killed all those people?

Biggest bullshit ever they have no shame. Coffee acts as a blood thinner, so it's rather the opposite. There is some preliminary research that caffeine may increase the coagulation factor during heavy workout,but that's it. Asshoes!

Yeah - don't do anything to raise your heart rate above 100 BPM, otherwise:
