Scientists may soon be able to erase fear and trauma

Scientists may soon be able to erase fear and trauma from your mind

Brave New World is nearly here? I wonder how this could affect Trauma Based Mind Control? ;p I know that Neurolinguistic Programming, Entheogen therapy, Meditation, etc... aren't very well known to be beneficial for this stuff. And the first one is mostly thanks to the crazy over-charging from NLP'ers. But anyway a chemical pill is so much "easier". It's not like repressing this stuff can come back and bite you in the ass after all. Oh wait, it might. I can only imagine the dreamscape of people who will try this, but I'm probably overreacting because most people don't remember their dreams anyway (and are pissing a third of their life away.)

"There is no coming to consciousness, without pain." Carl Jung

This isn't some fatalistic statement, it just says that learning from your past is usually more beneficial than repressing it. I guess it is hopeful for those that are not helped by the above mentioned therapies, though I doubt they are often tried and they are not exactly "popular" as it's not always instant-gratification therapy (that's mostly a good sign...). I mean, slightly related, trendwhores are trying this crazy shit.

This psychiatric quackery that wants to make everything chemical instead of teaching people how to sort out their stuff with their own mind really bothers me. The language in those articles by the "Science Correspondent" gives this gems: "deveolpment", "Neurobiologists believe..." (I'd rather have them thinking), "The team, who worked with scientists at East China Normal (?!) University in Shanghai (I wonder what Crazy University is like), has isolated a "memory molecule" in a mouse and used it to remove its painful memories." Whoa! Nearly there! lol. There are 3 other articles linked in the link I gave. All 3 talk about rats.

Hey even fear can be dealt with a pill perhaps soon, I guess they'll have to wait a bit until using terrorism as a weapon politically is off the table!

a: "Oh! Hey! We found something! In brains of mice and rats! We can make money from this!"
b: "Don't you think we should wait to tamper with human brains until we know more about it?"
a: "I said we can make money from this! MONEEEEEEEEEEEY!"
b: "But!..."

Wow man, Too funny!

I was remembering a line from the Simpsons tonight while at work where Lisa tells Bart that "Dow Chemical is making a minty gel that will help alleviate excess Guilt!"

Go American Psychiatry! NOT.

Thanks for the heads up!
