PONEROLOGY. ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PONEROLOGY

Earlier in PONEROLOGY: A BRIEF INTRODUCTION we had exposed the concept and theory of Ponerology, by Lobaczewski.

Ted Bundy
The serial killer Ted Bundy

The author says that evil is similar in nature to the disease, although this is more complex and elusive to our understanding. Its genesis reveals many pathological factors; especially psychopathological, in character, whose essence, medicine and psychology have already studied. Understanding the essence and genesis of evil generally uses information from biology, medicine and psychology. Only a philosophical reflection is clearly insufficient.

On the base of the theory of Ponerology, psychopathy (“essential psychopathy” according Lobacweski) is located.

Surely many of you have heard about this personality disorder, since it’ very fashionable “by chance”. Psychopathy is generally characterized by the uncontrolled impulsivity and inability to feel emotion and empathy of a human being. From that lack of control and inability is generated the next psychological/behavioral profile :

1. Superficiality

1.1. Lie

2. Eccentricity and grandeur

3. Lack of empathy

3.1.Lack of remorse / guilt

4. Impulsivity

4.1.Descontrol of behavior

5. Need for excitement

6. Lack of accountability

7. Behavioral problems in childhood

7.1. Adult antisocial behavior

Sounds it familiar?

A psychopath is usually a charming, trickster person who poses him/herself as important and talented. This is how he / she gains the trust of the people, to try becoming them dependent on him / her, and so exploit their weaknesses to manipulate for him/her advantage; usually through the scam, abuse and blackmail. This kind of person likes to get into very large, colorful and outlandish projects, both in normal life and the criminal life.

The causes of psychopathy are 3 types:

Limbic System A) Organic: when the brain has injuries, which have directly affected the limbic system (manages physiological responses to emotional stimuli) and caused the person has undergone a personality disorder

B) Genetic: when the person manifests antisocial and deviant behavior at an early age (childhood), without having suffered any brain injury directly above, and living in a normal social environment. Ie, the person is born with this problem because it’s genetically originated

C) Social: when the person grows and develops in abnormal social environment, Limbic Systemviolento, criminal and / or is mistreated repeatedly and his/her psyche “learns” the disorder, assimilating it

The psychopath is born and made.

Objectively, in fact, the problem is always organic, because if the individual is born with the problem he suffers a brain defect or deficiency (instead of injury). And if the individual develops the disorder because of their social environment, brain has developed this deficiency.

The brain is the computer of our mind and body, so whenever there is a mental, psychological or physical problem, the answer is in the brain, and genetics because it is their language.


Lobaczewski disagree with that psychopathy is caused by damage or deficiency in the front of the brain, he calls it front characteropathy“.

The author discusses the characteropathies” in the explanation of Evil.

A characteropathy is a pathological entity associated with a particular character trait that invades the conduct of the person beyond his will, and hinders their social adaptation, capacity building, relationships

The brain matter retains unblemished natural and instinctive emotional responses of our species. This includes, for example, the ability to form emotional ties with others and empathize, ie what Lobaczewski called intuit a psychological situation. However, characteropathic thought processes differ, and are characterized by increased emotional violence and pathological egotism. His conceit and self-importance narcissistic and irregular psychology have a traumatizing effect on normal people, diminishing much common sense of his victims to the point they where infected with pathological thinking. The younger or more naive individuals, can be transmitted more easily these traits.

The characteropathies make mental disorders and personality disorders, and the author stresses that these are the core of evil in humanity.

Specifically, hereditary or acquired psychological disorders and ignorance of their existence and nature are the primary causes of evil. The magic number of 6% seems to represent the number of human carriers of genes responsible for biological, or who acquire such disorders in the course of his life evil.

This small percentage is responsible for the vast majority of human misery and crime, and infect others with their flawed worldview.

The spread of evil doesn’t respect any limits of race, creed or ideology. All races carry the genes, and all schools of thought are susceptible to their influence. These pathological factors form a complex network. Only within this network can be understood the “bad environment where all circumstances can influence a normal person to commit harmful acts.

We must always remember that the environment in which develops and lives a person is essential about is/her behavior, thinking and personal resources.

According to the author, there are a deforming tendencies of reality that help Evil triumphs among us:

1. Emotional reactions: often little appropriate

2. Moralizing interpretation: we make moral judgments, as if our thinking were the best

3. Interpretation corrective christic: its richer psychological worldview, normal people often trivialize glaring errors and project their own understanding of the work of someone who lacks such skills

4. Reflection of self-protection: we identify quickly as a threat to others and apply a moral judgment

5. Normal Psychological Types

6. Lack of universality: we live our lives with only emotional thinking and the pursuit of happiness, but these tools are insufficient when we’re dealing with psychopathology

7. Egotism and natural worldview: some people with a highly developed natural vision of psychological, social and moral aspects tend to overvalue their own worldview, seeing it as an objective basis for judging others. While this is the least pernicious form of egotism, based on humanistic principles, the refusal to admit the possibility of error can have an oppressive effect on contractionary measures against macrosocial disease. The game

But, I always end up wondering: what is the reality?

Lobacweski explains Histerodial cycle of human society:

The key is in the “pursuit of happiness” of the human being from the beginning of time. Humans began to exploit animals and their environment, and then to their human companions. They were the seeds of suffering and inequality, so good times became bad. The issue is that knowledge learned in bad times leads to the creation of good times again, and the cycle is repeated.

When times are good, the perception of truth, understanding what a healthy human personality and its dynamics, ceases to be the highest priority, then it ceases to be understood and finally disappears. So the search for truth is considered a pointless activity for the same reason that they are “good times”. A deep understanding can become “old fashioned” or even can be neglected.

This is what is happening, and that’s very dangerous.

In the genesis of Evil the most important cause is the interaction of two human factors:

a) Normal human ignorance and weakness

b) The existence and action of a small but extremely active group of psychologically deviant individuals

The ignorance of the existence of such psychological differences is the first ponerogenesis criterion because this ignorance creates a crack through which such individuals can act unnoticed.

A very interesting science, right?

And decisive.

PONEROLOGY: A BRIEF INTRODUCTION

What the hell is the “Ponerology”?

Poneros (latin): evil.

Ponerology: it’s a new science which analyzes “evil”, its origin, nature and causes on Humanity.

Who developed this science?

The psychiatrist Andrzej Łobaczewski (Poland). Specifically, this science is an interdisciplinary study of the causes of social injustice periods, ie, periods of oppression against human population (war of aggression, genocide, ethnic cleansing, police states). Here Psychology, Psychopathology, History, Sociology and Philosophy are involved.

Where was conducted the investigation?https://i0.wp.com/ayay.co.uk/backgrounds/fantasy/monsters/possessed-demon-rabbit.jpg

Czechoslovakia and Hungary during the years before the institution of communism.

So, the author dissects the psychological profile of the people” who come to power and become hard authoritarian leaders, as well as psychopathological processes or mental illnesses that are related to the types of evil behavior and evil thoughts, which are completely dissociated from the unit, collaboration, coexistence and original human feelings. 

With very few exceptions through the ages, discussions of moral philosophy ( the study of right conduct) have failed to systematically investigate the origin, nature and  the course of evil in a manner free of supernatural imaginings. Evil was often regarded as something to be suffered and endured rather than something that could be understood and eliminated by rational measures.

The author talks about the happy times” and “unhappy times” that are alternated in societies, and he also talks about the term pathocracy” which means A system of government created by a small pathological minority who take over a society of normal people“.

Really, Evil requires a truly modern and scientific approach to discover its secrets.

Without knowledge there are no solutions. Without knowledge there is no nature. Without knowledge there is no life.

LEARNED HELPLESSNESS. ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LEARNED HELPLESSNESS.

Maybe, if you’re not a psychologist, psychiatrist, sociologist, researcher or student, you’ve never heard of “learned helplessness”. Don’t worry, because you are in the right place and time.

Our mind is a super reactive computer, so it reacts (we react) to all environments, circumstances, events, energy and external information, ie, reacts to the stimulus’. These external stimuli provoke certain reactions, through our perception, and trigger different psychological phenomena in response either to solve, flee, fight or defend. Yes, that’s the life on the Earth.

Psychological phenomena are groups of certain reactions to these stimuli, resulting in a behavior. When a person something happens, whether good or bad, it’s usually detected in his/her behavior.

Learned helplessness is just a psychological phenomenon which presents the following behavior:

Passive behavior in situations, environments, or adverse circumstances in life although there are real opportunities to change these situations or problems; avoiding unpleasant circumstances , or obtaining positive rewards. Learned helplessness translates into an absolutely evasive behavior against complications, because the subject flees problems, evade, interposing a shield of excuses, which have often victim nature.

This psychological phenomenon can be easily induced, or simply caused by stressful and negative situations  for a long time.

SELIGMAN, in 1967, made the “Theory of learned helplessnessfrom the study in dogs, the effects of a series of INEVITABLE electric shocks, with no possibility of escape, and then another series of AVOIDABLE electrical shocks, with the possibility of escape. The result? Dogs failed to learn to escape and avoid shocks. The author showed that the reason for this phenomenon was due to uncontrollability of the original shocks using an experimental design called triadic design”, based on 2 stages. This design allows isolating the effects of uncontrollable consequences of the effects of controllability, this is precisely the trick.

In the experiment there are 3 groups of subjects:

a. Escapable

b. Inescapable

c. Control

The phases are:

1. Pretreatment: the escapable group is exposed to aversive consequences that can be controlled by the subjects (contingent reinforcement). The Inescapable group is exposed to the same aversive consequences but has no possibility to control (non-contingent reinforcement). Control group undergoes this phase.

2. Proof: all subjects are exposed to a test task in which the tests are related contingently with some response of subjects, so the consequences are CONTROLLABLE for ALL subjects.

Then, learned helplessness is verified whether subjects of INESCAPABLE group show a DEFICIT in the response (reaction) ESCAPE-AVOIDANCE in the testing phase, compared to the other two groups. The learned helplessness theory posits that organisms exposed to a situation of uncontrollability show later deficits in learning success responses (solutions) .

“I can’t”

Learned helplessness has been studied deeply,

 and has determined that it’s manifested through three deficits:

A) Motivational: delay in the initiation of voluntary responses, ie, the subject doesn’t believe that their responses affect the consequences, so it stops issuing them.

B) Cognitive: belief in the ineffectiveness of their responses to control the consequences that hinders the learning of later success.

C) Emotional *: a series of characteristic behavioral and physiological disorders, in a state of anxiety and fear followed by depression, occur when the consequences in the pretreatment are sufficiently aversive.

The emotional deficit is the most serious because it’s the most harmful in the psyche, emotional integrity is paramount in good mental health.

There are other effects following exposure to uncontrollable shocks worth mentioning here:

– Reduction of aggressiveness and competitiveness

– Conditioning of high levels of fear neutral stimuli rigged to shock

– Increased stress symptoms (for example: ulcers)

– Changes in the levels of cortisol and neurotransmitters like norepinephrine

In short, learned helplessness is a person experiencing the consequences and his/her behavior are independent, ie, uncontrollable , so he/she forms an expectation that there will be no contingency response-consequence in the future.

When a person perceives that the situations are uncontrollable, makes a causal attribution, ie the reason for this uncontrollability. The causal attribution has 3 areas:

1. Internal-External: causes of self or circumstances. If the cause is attributed to self, self-esteem is destroyed.

2. Stable-Unstable: constant or time varying causes. If adverse situations are persistent, learned helplessness becomes chronic.

3. Global-Specific: General causes in different situations, or a particular situation.

In addition helplessness can be:

Universal: a person who believes that their responses are not contingent with the desired effect and that no other subject has these responses, ie, believes the solution is simply “impossible”. This person attributes the cause to external, specific and unstable factors. The helplessness does not generalize.

Personal: a person who believes he has the answers but others have them, ie, believes that “can not”. The person attributes the cause to internal, stable and global factors. The helplessness is chronic and widespread.

The theory of learned helplessness has been proposed as an explanatory model of human depression because the symptoms can be induced by treatment with helplessness.

NOT ALL IS LOST…

The good news is that learned helplessness can be overridden. This is done by first submitting the subject to a successful escape learning with which he/she can escape a shock through an escape response. This equates to immunize against defenseless.

The learned helplessness model postulates that emotion and motivation are shaped by the environment, so directly affects education. The cause of learned helplessness are past experiences, so it is important the infant stage of a person, because that is what will set your mind. If a child in his/her environment, others do not stop tell him/her he/she is worthless, silly and they assault him/her, that’s how he/she will feel to the world and in the future. However, if the others support the child, and they say him/her that he/she is valuable, and he/she is good and can do everything he/she porposes successfully , this child will be brave, motivated, optimistic and confident. It’s simple.

The attitude of a child or an adult to his own helplessness or ability domain is based on child development. For learning domain, is essential that the mother act so responsive, because the absence of the mother, deprivation and unresponsive stimulate maternal behavior contribute to the learning of uncontrollability.

Finally, if you have ever felt that way, or you feel that way now, you should know that there is a SOLUTION. You are not alone! Stop thinking so, and stop believing that you are a victim, because in reality you are a human being with rights, and secondly, you’re a survivor.

NEGLECT. ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT NEGLECT.

Neglect
Two kids sleeping on the floor of the street. It’s an extreme example of the family neglect

Can the family neglect destroy psychologically a person?

What is the behavior of a person psychologically destroyed?

According to a study conducted in 2002 at the University of Málaga (Spain) on The psychological impact of family neglect in a group of children, family neglect, completely paralyzes and delays the psyche of children.

Negligence means indifference. When a human being manifests indifference to another human being, makes an impression on his mind, and if this indifference is prolonged, it causes a psychological and social consequences eventually. This is intensified when the person suffering the indifference of others is a child.

The mind of a child is very tender, soft, premature. The mind of a child is very malleable, and what the cast, in this world, is his environment. His closest and most influential environment is the family. What a child lives in their home is his personality mold. The home environment is the recipient of the human psyche maturing.

Previous stTrabajo-infantiludies reveal:

Abandoned children present more problems ,and more severe, between 5 and 6 years old.

 – These children have lower cognitive performance, are anxious, distracted, unmotivated, can’t do their homework without help from the teacher, are socially withdrawn, dependent and have a permanent state of anger.

 – Abandoned children physically present externalizing behaviors such as aggression, hyperactivity and distractibility, while physically abused children exhibit internalizing behaviors such as anxiety, obsession compulsion, inhibition, unpopularity and destruction.

The family neglect destabilizes the policy development in the cognitive, linguistic and social levels, causing fear and anxiety in children from any everyday situation, even if it was positive.

Abused children have a delayed cognitive development and academic performance.

The family neglect progressively develops chronic states of sadness and anxiety, feelings of inferiority and low self esteem.
tumblr_mby3loTPKE1rqhhsjo1_250 

The study by the University of Málaga (Spain), reveals that children who were victims of serious family neglect manifest lower overall adaptation, and lower academic performance against children who suffered slight negligence.

In addition, these children have a poorer general adaptive characteristics, they work and learn less, they are less happy and behave inappropriately. They live in a world far removed from reality, they don’t know how to behave socially for acceptance of others, they aren’t adapted to correct situations outside their family. These children are rejected by their high levels of unpopularity, hyperactivity, pre-delinquent behavior and hardness in his personality.
So, children who suffered serious family neglect manifest very different pathological behaviors as criminal behavior, hardness, hyperactivity, unpopularity and externalizing behaviors.   violencia%20infantil4

There is no doubt that family neglect is the most serious, because socially and humanly it’s the most damaging.

Children are people in society. These people grow up and become who their experiences have taught them to be.

A child always needs someone to teach him, someone who is at his side, not only to protect him from everything, because overprotect is bad too, but to be heard. Humans are social beings, ie, they need social relations to develop and live. If a small human is deprived of that, he can’t develop, and he will be deficient in many respects.

Take care of your children.

They are a treasure.

VIOLENCE. ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT VIOLENCE.

What’s “violence”? The violence is the kind of human interaction that occurs in behaviors or situations which deliberately, learned or imitated, causes a sever physical, sexual, verbal or psychological harm, subjecting to a person, or to a community; or affect so much that limit their present or future potentials.

For there to be “violence”, there must be DAMAGE, HURT, INJURY, HARM, both physical and psychological: on the body, and on the mind, from one person to other person.

What’s the origin of the violence in human society? The family. Because the family is the suprem teacher agent.The family prepares us to face the world and relate to others. Within the family, the most important educational figure is: the mother (Read the article LOVE. ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LOVE. ) In the family atmosphere should be good. So… Of course, the relationship with parents should be good too.

Besides the family, school is important. At school we interact with other people and we learn a lot of knowledge which take us out of ignorance, and therefore, of primitivism.

Therefore, the school should be a normal, calm and positive experience to can learn to build peaceful and healthy personal relationships while developing the intelect by general knowledge. For this reason, is remarkable the damage, such as distrust and fear, on which relationships are built, because that’s in the origin of group relation problems, ie antisocial behavior.

When you come into the world, as a social human being who you are, psychologically absorb models or templates of interpersonal relationship. So if the models are peaceful and positive, you will be a peaceful and positive person in the society. If the models are agressive, violent and negative, you will be a violent and negative person. It’s simple!

What’s the difference between a positive social model and a negative social model? The positive social model is based on Love. The negative social model is based on Fear. Love is courage and respect. Fear is hate and destruction. With fear nothing is worth. With fear nothing is valuable. With fear there is no future. With fear there is an apocalypse. Fear is a big factory of primitivism, negative energy of: danger, hostility, selfishness, resentment and… Unreal!

Violent people are full of fear. They are full of all that, god! And all that is the worst ignorance.

But… It’s very hard to learn something they didn’t teach you, on Earth and on a physical body, dude!

Violence is a social phenomenon, and it’s learned ‘from’ and ‘in’ society (family, school) and applied to the society.

We can’t blame the genes, because genes are activated and developed acording to the physical and social environment in which a person develops (this is what is called “epigenetics”).

Yes… There are cases in which people are born evil by nature, but they are, fortunately, rare and extreme cases.

Advances in psychiatric epidemology, in psychological assesment and criminology have shown the inadequacy of the concept of RISK to predpredict the occurence of future violence, and proposed new methods of prediction of violence based on the assesment of risk factors that anticipate violent behavior.

These methods are to calculate the probability of occurrence of violent behavior in the future, which is essential to build a framework for effective violence prevention. What specific benefits does this have?

For example, in prisons:

Facilitate decision as to urgency and need for treatment

– Grant of home leave

Regime change or access to parole

New techniques for predicting violent behavior are based on a thorough knowledge of the nature and processes associated with violence. It has replaced the term “dangerousness” to “risk of violence.”

Is it difficult to predict violent behavior? Yes. Beause there are multiple causes and serious violent behavior is usually uncommon. This does not mean that this is not feasible.

What is the danger? The danger is the propensity of a person to commit violent acts. The dangerousness is a legal category that defines the risk of committing serious offenses by a criminal, that is, criminal dangerousness, or part of a subject, even without a criminal record, that is, social dangerousness. There are two ways to determine the dangerousness of a person:

1 The clinical-forensic technique

Objective: To evaluate the criminal capacity, associated with various personality traits (aggressiveness, egocentrism ) and social maladjustment.

2 The typological classification made by means of criminal profiling

Objective: To classify a given subject in a profile based on a series of psychological, social and biographical characteristics. It has low predictive accuracy.

The issue is that consider the dangerousness as the cause of violent behavior implies a limited capacity prediction and gives two types of errors: false negatives and false positives.

Therefore dangerousness identification has replaced for risk assessment, because, unlike the dangerousness, the risk of violence is SPECIFIC and VARIABLE, allowing to take graduate and re-evaluated decisions  for the future prognosis of violence. So, this is, the dangerousness was static, and risk assessment is flexible.

Violence in the past is a common risk factor in all forms of violence, however, paraphilias are a risk factor for sexual violence but not for intimate partner violence.

To assess the risk is no need to find out the causes of the violence, but the risk factors associated with it, ie, it focuses on the situational context.

In assessing the risk of violence there are two types of procedures: clinical procedures and actuarial methods. Although there are also mixed. Risk assessment is based on empirical knowledge, not only in clinical intuitions. The problem is the variety and simultaneity of risk factors.

Through these procedures, what to do to make an assessment of risk of violence? We must to do personal interviews, psychological and medical evaluations, and review of social and health records and obtaining collateral information.

In Spain, there are different instruments of violence risk assessment:

VRAG: predicting serious violent behavior in adults with severe mental illness or criminal history

HCR-20: assesses the risk of violent behavior in mental patients and adult offenders

PCL-R:  evaluates the presence of PSYCHOPATHY on adults with a violent or criminal record

SARA: assesses the risk of violent behavior of physical or sexual nature against a partner or former partner

EPV: predicts the risk of serious violence of killing against partner or former partner

SVR-20: assesses the risk of sexual violence in adult mental patients and criminals accused of these type of crimes

SAVRY: assesses the risk of physical, sexual violence and serious threats to mental patients and young offenders (14-18 years)

In any risk assessment procedure must take a series of pre-election decisions of a particular instrument:

1 Define the type and characteristics of violence

2 Specify the time period of prediction

3 Report the particular population (example violence)

Clinical judgment based on the structured risk assessment guide, is the ideal technique for predicting and managing the risk of violence. With that, assessor errors are avoided. By this method, improve forecasts of violence on: prison populations, mentally ill offenders and rapists couple.

How you see, in society, the issue of violence concern people, repelled and want to solve, therefore, have developed all the scientific tools explained here. This is very good.

But the human mind is a computer, and computers are programmable … In fact, it is programmable generationally, as their large database is DNA. This database is storing all the information of the entire lives, feelings and experiences of all family members, being present in all descendants lives (later). In every human life, a brain responds to a program. The configuration of the program depends on the experiences that the person lives. The experiences activate and / or deactivate genes. These genes can be both good and bad. The human being is always subjected to a mental program, which of course is connected to his body. Mental program begins to take shape from conception of the person. From birth continues configurating and is consolidating, until it reaches adolescence, the crisis stage where the program may undergo major changes, and then continues into adulthood, where experiences can shape more programming , although it is more difficult if the person is mentally strong. Mental program determines the behavior of people, so if their experiences in society are negative, the person will be negative. If your parents mistreat you, you will mistreat, because your parents take these genes and therefore , mistreating you they activate them , programming you just like that.

We learn, and we remember. What you learn, is what you will do in your life. And this lessons, good or bad, activate a lot of your genes, good or bad too. It’s like remembering.

What’s your program?

Do you have a violent program?

Love. All you need to know about love

In human life, rationally, many times we wonder “why is love so important”.

Well, scientifically, the answer is very sweet and it won’t leave you indifferent:

Neuroscientists advances say the bond between a mother and her baby is a complex network of neural, hormonal, psychological and social factors.

According the spanish neonatologist Adolfo Gomez Papí says, at birth we only have 25% of the brain size developed. The other 75% of the size develops over the next 2 or 3 years. This means the basic brain structures are formed in 3 years, on human life.

Of course, nutrition and genes influence this neuronal formation, but especially: the bond with mother (or primary caregiver).

The spanish psychiatrist Enrique García Bernardo says the baby receives important emotional information from his/her mother, which is Love (caresses, words, smiles, songs…). The mother empathizes with her son/daughter. Imagine a sweet mother calming her baby in her valuable arms.

Love is understanding. Love is comforting. Love is smiling and laughing in front of life. Only with love a human can be healthy, ie developed. Because without mother’s love , children’s brains can’t make neuronal connections.

There is an emotional exchange between the right cerebral hemisphere of mother and son/daughter, as says Allan Schore from Departament of Psychiatry of University of California, LA, USA,  and this is because in children predominates right cerebral hemisphere, which governs emotions.

So this is the natural way: emotions.

Additionally, in the first year of human life, a neuronal prunning happens, because the brain wants to economy its resources and prunes the least used neuronal connections. So if the attachment to the mother was safe, its connection will continue, but if not, it won’t.

Let’s think: if mother gives love, there are emotions. If there are emotions is born attachment. From attachment goes security to face the world, and interact with others. This is: “They comfort me when I’m wrong, maybe I don’t have to fear the world”.

2 keys: comfort and welfare.

Children who lived an insecure attachment to their mother, based on negligence and abuse, have more risk of suffer depression, anxiety or personality disorders on their adulthood.

That’s related to the ability of handing stress in life. Michael Meanes, psychiatrist of Montreal, Canadá,  made an experiment whose result was that persons who had good maternal care, secreted less cortisol (stress hormone), ie they have less stress reactivity.

Also it have studied the influence of the maternal bond in the hippocampus, on 2012 at University of Washington, San Luis, USA, and the result was that children who received an adequate support from their mother had 9,2% greater hippocampus than children who had not.

Think that the first person with whom we interact is our mother. This is why she is a model, a general template or base of interpersonal relationship. The relationship we had with our mother will condition subconsciuosly in our relationship with the world and others.

Therefore the mother is the symbol of love, and love was the symbol of sex: making love = making a baby. At present, sex doesn’t represent love anymore because of the masive sexualization campaign to the human population.

All that is created, all that born comes from emotions, and destruction is the lack of them. To feel, we need a brain developed into that.

The spirit is related to the emotional capacity, so deny love or mistreat a child means to kill his inocent spirit, his divinity. This child can’t be aware, can’t feel adequately, and can’t be ‘good’ or ‘normal’ person. He/she can’t fit to the world. He/she is a misfit.

Giving love to a child means paying attention to him/her, and for that TIME is required. This world consumes our time… This ‘world’ feeds on that.

I remember my mother playing with me, listening to me, comforting me… She always explained me the ‘why’ of everything. She was always smiling to me. She was fascinated by my drawings and all I was doing or learning.

The Love of my mother has been the most important of my life.

Dude, the love of my mother is what I am today.

This is why “all you need is love”.
