Moxie's

Disease

 

The Fallacy of Composition — Tries to apply something true of items or individuals within the group to the whole group - They use dichos, or sayings, or proverbs - to try to scare you - or hide their true feelings - so they won't give out by their expression what's really on their mind, which is usually murder!

 

NOTES TO MYSELF

PSYCHOLOGICAL AGE

CLASS

[primrose path to quarreling] - It's called misunderstanding - They act so smooth and so nice, and everything they say brings up caldrons of hurt and bad feelings - They spend so much energy pretending they're normal, you can't say anything real - They scare people - (If people are scared, they'll do what you tell them) - They ask abrupt questions that nobody could know the answers to - There's no motivation behind it - They don't even know it: "You scared me, now I'll scare you!" - It's worse than if they knew what they were doing - They're such frightened little pansies, they want to feel secure - Shock & awe - The ones who don't know what they're doing are worse than the ones who know - They use leading questions, which seem easy and appropriate enough, until you get to the can of worms! Suddenly you're a pathetic, lying jerk!

"Laughter incited by sexually perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is not only disgusting, but it reminds us some Hollywood/N.Y. entertainers have a long way to go in understanding what the rest of America understands – that acceptance of inappropriate sexual comments about an underage girl, who could be anyone's daughter, contributes to the atrociously high rate of sexual exploitation of minors by older men who use and abuse others ...

REFLECTIONS

 
 
 
 
 

31-MAY-1999.

Finding Yourself in the «seishin byooin»

I have a funny memory from childhood, a wordless memory, really, triggered from stumbling on an escalator. As my right arm shot out to break my fall, I fully recalled a moment I was learning to walk.

At the age of two, I realized I could crawl across the room at about ninety miles an hour, much faster than walking, which I determined to be a huge waste of time, if not dangerous. I remembered scooting across the room on all fours, like a chicken caught out of his eggplant.

"Come on, Ridgey," Mom gently coaxed, "You can walk!"

We have so many bound-up memories. Have you ever been so focused on asking a particular person on a date, when amidst a torrent of strange words (tightening the noose in your belly), you hear someone else say, "Why don't you take Kathy Jo, here — She'd love to go?"

Suddenly the shock of rejection hits you, and in the weirdness of playing musical chairs, you really don't know how to avoid hurting Kathy Jo's feelings — I mean, what had she done?

I want to get back to primitive crawling.

Okay. Last week in the checkout line at the United Airlines Employees Cafeteria, a certain huge woman strolled right up to the cash register on the other side of the aisle and loudly proclaimed, "Is this line open?" Magenta on black, the cash register display, just by her ham salad, read "C-L-O-S-E-D."

These are strange moments, aren't they? No one ever taught me to cry out, "—Too early!"

"Come on, Ridgey — You can walk!"

"Why don't you take Kathy Jo, here — She'd love to go?"

"Is this line open?"

Because my emotional system was frozen at a preverbal level, I was tricked into having the emotions of a child rather than the emotions of an adult — I couldn't even realize these people were just trying to "jump the gun."

So, who teaches royalty, like Chelsie Clinton, or the Prince of Wales, how to be gracious and kind? Are they schooled in such a thing? Do they have tutors?

 

The Aim of taxi1010.com is:

 

 

(1) to provide knowledge, which a person can blend with experiences, to create understanding.

 

KNOWLEDGE + EXPERIENCE ==> UNDERSTANDING

 

 

 

(2) To stir up plenty of ideas to nourish growth of the inner child from the past.

 

TIME + UNDERSTANDING ==> HEALS ALL WOUNDS

 

 

 

(3) To stimulate good cheer in the pursuit of self-understanding.

 

A PERSON'S INNER ATMOSPHERE ==> THEIR CHARACTER

 

 

 

(4) To illuminate the underside of life, where people break all the rules.

 

A PERSON'S CHARACTER ==> THEIR FATE

 

 

 

(5) To rein in the importance of people who propagate fear and intimidation.

 

People have a reliance on "what" the emotions point to rather than an understanding of their inner meaning; the "target" of emotions rather than their "triggers"; "husks" rather than "kernels."

 

 

 

(6) To contact the part of myself that dreams at night.

 

The inner child thrives on liking, acceptance, focusing its attention, clarity, comprehending, making mistakes in the process of learning, a sense of humor, and a subtle wise light.

 

 

The eighty-eight pages from stargate01 to stargate88 reflect the story of a person's life, from infancy to young adulthood. You can find the framework for this in the Site Map below. In the left column are six Psychological Ages, from toddler to child to kid to nut to teenager to grownup. In the next column are the twenty-two Major Arcana from the Book of Tarot, in a one-to-one correspondence with certain "Patients" in a Japanese Mental Hospital, the «seishin byooin». By thinking of an attacker as a "Patient," you institutionalize him or her, and in so doing, reduce their importance.

Also in the third column is an insult "Class" — one of Murder, Separation, Rules, Challenges, Unreal Impulses, or Wild Expectations.

Finally, in the rightmost column are numbers corresponding to stargate01.htm through stargate88.htm along with a "Diagnostic" ranging from Ambush to Veiled Hatred — twenty-two in all.

Because experience is by nature solitary, most people don't get practical on-the-spot assistance when they get into difficulties. I hope the reader finds nourishment in these pages to repair his or her memories of the past, and as a series of diligent gestures, to prepare for wonderful events in the future. Most of life is a fluid string of events, seething with possibility and change, and rationally unknowable. The knots of trouble, however, are subject to analysis.

taxi1010.com is filled with responses a person can consider using in those situations, like bubbles in the stream. Always ask, "What do I believe in?" "What do I like?" and "What sees all this?" Then look for something inside yourself like a subtle wise light.
