Irresponsibility and the psychosis, –  


noun (plural psychoses) a mental disorder in which thought and emotions are so impaired that perception of external reality is severely affected.

ORIGIN, from Greek psukhosis ‘animation’, from psukhoo ‘I give life to’, from psukhe ‘soul, mind’.

(in the ‘pretence’ of being god-like creatures: in various states of denial – see the News any day, and more… Irresponsibility – OK, but why psychosis? One {amongst, a few others} reasons, "Uncertainties of the human being – no one can be sure of another’s intentions or feelings – the perpetual uncertainty of the human condition (sharing, fairly, meat/resources) – uncertainty that is not permanently uppermost but is always there – in ‘open societies’ it is met and dealt with by the transcendent, disembodied inspection and remedying of shamanism and trance possession i.e., today’s – most forms of religion, see, below. Ref, Anthropology – P.J.Wilson) 

– of most Government: ‘human group behaviour’, causing – warmongering, war, fraudulent promises, celebrity worship and ignorance, neglect of duty, mass and individual usurpation’s and starvation, so on…, innocent deaths: shown up by our dreadful Social History around the World, and on a massive and appalling scale. Ref, "the social and political administration of any State, should be, no more than: the regular cleaning out of drains"! The dangerous – to whom: our psychotic leaders?! "Political theory of egalitarianism" (prehistory, primitive man, Silbury Hill, Stone Henge, West Coast of Peru, so on…) – we all may need it, now! A political theory that is to ‘catch on’, must be aimed at the individual, you and the group, feel or be – cosmologically and materially: perfectly right! Science leading to "The Egalitarian Revolution";jsessionid=93F8FA3B060C42F8A0774A821740F3A9

Ref, "Where we start to, {besides taking very young children to restaurant’s or on aircraft} in Britain to ‘view’ children in the ‘negative’; ‘derogatory’; ‘sectarian’: light". I.e. The ‘ageing population UK’ and ‘child-hate’ / ‘suspicion’: endemic and inherent in UK Culture, the "Age Wars" – protection of school and leader – legal issues; inward thinking, and publicity, press, smutt-hounds) / given to party leader.

An "Original Article". Written before the modern knowledge of an immanent and catastrophic "Global Warming" scenario that confronts our very existence – probably, our destruction at sometime in the near future, even if we all take some action!

"Knowledge and freedom are nowadays regarded as values, but the role of values in human behavior has always been a difficult problem. As values are expressed in poetry or in prose. I have selected examples of both in order to make a particular point.

Roaring Boys and Whores
While food has flavor and limbs are shapely
And hearts beat bravely to fiddle or drum
Our proper employment is reckless enjoyment
For too soon the noiseless night will come
"Our species has been favored on this planet, although we have not always been good caretakers of our globe’s resources. Our stay here, in the spaces of geological time has been brief. No one can tell us our business. But I think it is something more than to consume as much as we can and then blow the place up".
"We have, if not a duty, then a need deeply engraved within our culture to pass the place on, no worse than we found it. Those of us, who do not expect an after life, may see in this our only immortality to pass on the succession of life, the succession of culture. It may even be that we are happier, when we are engaged in matters larger than our own wants and ourselves".
Undoubtedly, Auden’s poem represents the viewpoint of many, right across the age and social spectrum, whilst Thompson’s prose suggests that a different attitude to life is desirable. Both viewpoints are tenable, but whilst the poem contains only one fact, the fact of death, the prose – incorporates a number of scientific statements.
What I wish to suggest is that values may be obtained from knowledge and the more comprehensive our knowledge, the more worthwhile are our values likely to be. The great Dr.Bronowski wrote, "I believe that science can create values and will create them precisely as literature does, by looking into the human personality, by discovering what divides it and what cements it".
Science is not technology. Science is a Latin word meaning knowledge. One of Bronowski’s great achievements was to show the ‘unity of art and science’. Can a few lines of poetry contain as much knowledge as a prose passage, and thus create worthwhile values? You may consider that Wordsworth accomplished this seemingly impossible feat when he wrote:
The world is too much with us; late and soon.
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers,
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away…
Look around you, I think, Wordsworth’s poem contains a number of testable scientific facts about the human brain, and human behavior, and he used this knowledge to create values.
The essential message of Thompson’s prose and Wordsworth’s poem, is that: we are part of the evolving animal world and that this fact, which individually and collectively, we prefer to ignore. We pretend we are god like creatures playing with nature, not subject to her inexorable law. Smart organisms survive and those that fail to make sense of their environment perish. We must understand ourselves and our place in nature or die. There is no choice about this. The only choice is to recognize it and do so in time".
(I have a feeling and right now: this time may of gone, and gone well past it’s sell by date, so maybe, it is, and if they feel like it: everyone should concentrate a little bit on Auden’s poem)
BBC TV Earth: The Climate Wars Dr Iain Stewart traces the history of climate change from its very beginning and examines just how the scientific community managed to get it so very wrong back in the Seventies.

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting.

Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
