Muttley - The Psychoanalysts' Margin
This essay will discuss what I have deemed, on basis of behavioural attitude evidence, "The Psychoanalysts' Margin". My areas of concern are: the 'orientation-association area' of the brain; its' contradistinctions with 'psychosis' and 'psychotherapy'; and the positive intrapathicities available from any outcomes.
It was alerted to me by Dr. Andrew Newberg (Phd) and his excellent "God And The Brain" discussion programs for www.soundstrue.com, of the overlaying cortex forming verbal conceptions, wilful decision-making, attention-focussing tasks, of the 'orientation-association area". For an example of this area working, please consider a psychotic patient trying to put a face to name, when the face and name don't quite match up in memory.
You'd imagine how frustrating situations like these could be, even for someone not suffering bouts of 'madness'. But it's for me to argue against the actual effectiveness, of scientific control groups, those which place dis-eased individuals in similar surroundings - with tweaked parameters - that cause the dis-eased patient to suffer more. This happens since primary association areas are liable to become overloaded with abstract worldly ideas and other recontextualisable phenomena.
On basis of an 'in flux' perception area, the psychoanalysts' margin of the sufferer, arguably, gets melted down into a pool of glue, pritt-sticking his or her experiences together through damage to muscle, visual and orientation-association areas of the brain. These types of behaviours, at the least personally, affect us as a kind of illusory probe; a quasi-scientific storytelling mechanism that floods our belief system with opposing ideas, similar to a kind of psychosis. Only this is not psychosis, as psychosis has at least rationality at core.
The pragmatism of solutions for mental health surfeits, such as psychotic behaviour and henceforth psychotherapy, gets me to include expressionistic views from www.askphilosophers.org contributor Thomas Pogge. "We might then distinguish four classes of expressions: 1) Those that ought to be outlawed and are morally wrong; 2) Those that ought to be legal and are morally wrong; 3) Those that ought to be legal and are morally indifferent; and 4) Those that ought to be legal and are morally called for". ('I Am, Therefore, I Think' P.121, Sceptre Pbk).
In effect, the multifaceted need for liveliness of the plain and simple beliefs those eventually undergoing psychotherapy take, cause them a vicious circle of turbulent energies. When, combined with orientations, plus the removing of any fictions and facades. Their energy reduces antimatter to factual gravel, at one extreme. At the other extreme, it accelarates an antagonistic sectioning service; when worked into 'therapeutic conversations', as they may be deemed.
An epistemologically related area is the time spent creating reductionist views based on the approvability of a freelance psychoanalyst's as opposed, or in contradistinction to, a social worker or clinician, including psychiatry as a field. The authorities' approval remains a benevolent yet tenacious force that should be managed as a small dose, not a quixotic tranquilizer.
In conclusion, it's for me to highlight the amniotic dexterity of the majority (of) behavioural attitudes to the 'orientation-assocation area', the general casts of opinion applied to 'psychosis', and 'psychotherapy' (as "bad", "weird"), and the positive intrapathicities of (the) aforesaid data, as more failures to recognise deficiencies than achievements. Fundamentally,"The Psychoanalysts' Margin", as I call it, is our ability to openly express beliefs and ideas about our psychological and physical capabilities and wellbeing - prejudices from mental health practitioners are still in decline. All I've left to recalcitrate, is the point we should be welcoming liberal panelling of viewpoints, not crushing them in a waiting line. I see this waiting line as a domino pile that will topple all and sundry if separations and proper assessments are not selectively taken. Here's to a future with the psychoanalysts' margin!
