Mon, 17 Oct 2016 09:36:07 -0500

On the five types of intelligence (we don't need to consider more than these five) and why we need to develop comprehensive intelligence tests that will measure all types of intelligence. If in your teenage years you felt like an alien from another planet, felt like you could not relate to people, felt like a social misfit, odd, out of place, never had too many friends, felt like a loner, felt that the world is too stupid for you to be part of it, and still feel a bit out of place, my recommendation is...

Carl Jung discovered the unconscious psychotherapy in the dream messages, and I confirmed the value of the unconscious treatment in dreams with my work and my discoveries, after continuing his research, proving that God is everyone's doctor, since He is the dream producer.

Humility Is a Lie - A Construct of Society

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 06:41:19 -0500

If lying is bad and deception is wrong, then how come we work so hard to ensure that people lie and deceive - you know the little white lies? One example of this is how we force others to be humble, but why, is it so we can feel good about ourselves? Shouldn't we really want to know when someone is confident, capable and achieved - why all the pretense, why is that considered a virtue?

Well, here we are in the middle of a full-blown, gloves off Presidential Race in 2016 and the amount of name-calling and political correctness is surely causing chaos. Friends and relatives have stopped talking to each other, the media is fanning the flames and new terms and labels are being added daily.

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 09:17:08 -0500

Abortion is a controversial subject in any culture from moral, religious, personal beliefs and medical views of what is right, wrong and the rights of women. In this article I will try to show the approach taken from a psychotherapeutic point of view as to how a woman can be assisted in making decisions about her own well-being, the life of the unborn baby, the personal and social impact of that decision on her life, her family and her relationships. We will also cover briefly and in context the idea of termination, of having an unplanned miscarriage and sudden infant death including infanticide of children in a further paper to be published.



Get the Help You Need

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 07:08:41 -0500

Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind, its functions and development. Our mind is an enigmatic organ that holds within itself the secrets of the universe. This brain also controls our entire body from the time it is created till the time it dies. The reason we are who we are can be attributed largely to our mind and its functioning. To understand this working and uncover who we are as people and know ourselves and the people around us better, is the main motto of psychology. People who practice this science are called psychologists.

Finding The Solutions You Need In Your Dreams

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:11:28 -0500

You have to understand that your concepts are based on false beliefs and that you will be in a better position if you will be humble. It will be much better for you if you will suffer being despised by others, instead of being falsely well-treated. This way you will understand how those who are around you behave if they are not afraid of you, and they forget to wear the social mask that always covers their face when they are with others. Wisdom is painful, but precious.

Tue, 17 May 2016 13:45:51 -0500

The Amazing Importance Of The Meaning Of Dreams

Tue, 10 May 2016 06:54:40 -0500

Now that everyone can understand the real meaning of dreams thanks to Carl Jung's discoveries and my discoveries, we have a special alternative that we didn't have before. Now we can understand the information we have in our dreams while we are sleeping also when we are awake, and solve our problems thanks to this information, even though the information we have is sad. The dream messages are unpleasant because we are far from balance. We prefer to believe that God is exaggerating, but He shows us the truth exactly as it is.

Your Mind Simulates External Reality

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 07:45:18 -0500

Neurobiology of Teaching

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 09:58:54 -0500

At a glance, one may feel, teaching as a profession does not have anything in its conceptual, theoretical stances that can be juxtaposed with the latest facts released from the brain researches. But there is scope for a new science called "neurobiology of teaching" which can integrate classroom environment, pedagogy and teacher personality with the chemistry of learner's brain. This will open new avenues for collaborative research attempts where formulation of research problems in education will have hue and texture of neuroscience and other brain sciences. Then perhaps there might prop up a need for reorientation in the fundamental concept of teaching itself where it has to embrace all those possible areas of student involvement (not only the class room).



Obama Needs A New Phrase for Ending His Speeches: God Won't Be Blessing America

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 14:37:42 -0500

There are many reasons why many if not most Americans, including I suspect, President Obama himself, do not think it likely that God is going to bless America, no matter how many times the president asks him to, day after day, in countless speeches here and around the world on a daily basis. I mention just a few of them in this essay.

Limitless Golf: The Power Of Beliefs

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 10:47:50 -0600

The game of golf is often referred to as a metaphor for life. Your golf game is a by-product of your unconscious beliefs. This article is part one in a six part series that looks at some common misconceptions about the game. These beliefs offer a possible explanation for the wide discrepancy between knowledge (of proper swing mechanics) and results. One of the biggest mental roadblocks, is the belief that continually recalling mistakes is the key to improvement. The majority of once-a-week golfers only seek professional help to illuminate swing flaws. This article offers an alternative to the traditional method of fault-finding and error correction, in the hopes of helping the student move beyond an obsession with swing mechanics.

Be Like Me

Fri, 26 Feb 2016 08:10:05 -0600

The human mind is as unfathomable as outer space, or the ocean's abyss.

Different Conclusions About The Same Psychological Reality

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 06:36:43 -0600

My work completes Carl Jung's work, giving another interpretation to what he had discovered, based on the scientific information I had in my historical time, since I belonged to the next generation, after his. Konrad Lorenz's work helped me very much, besides the work of many other scientists. What really helped me complete Jung's research was the fact that I discovered the existence of the anti-conscience, which he couldn't see with the knowledge he had.

Assessing Donnie Darko

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 09:11:07 -0600

Director Richard Kelly's masterpiece that is Donnie Darko ventures into the mind-bending yet unnerving side of science fiction as his film depicts a teenage boy's struggle with schizophrenia. Set in the late 80's, the movie follows 16-year old Donald "Donnie" Darko (Jake Gyllenhaal) and his unique relationship with a particular hallucination that presents itself in the form of a 6-foot-tall rabbit that goes by the name of Frank. After these hallucinations pull him away from what could have been a fatal accident, Donnie becomes fixated upon Frank's orders for him and develops an unhealthy obsession with executing Frank's demands. Donnie's descent into madness, however, is only a portion of the riveting plot. The presence of these hallucinations are synonymous with the oncoming collapse of reality, a notion Frank warned Donnie of during their first encounter. Although Donnie regularly meets with his psychiatrist, Dr. Thurman, the combination of attempting to understand the theoretical psychics of time travel and dealing with the paranoia associated with schizophrenia is incredibly overwhelming for the teen and ultimately ends in his symbolic and metaphoric death. Although this cult classic loosely touches on mental health issues, Kelly and Gyllenhaal utilized this character incredibly well to emanate the serious hardships of a psychotic disorder.

Can You Always Control Your Behavior?

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 06:24:45 -0500

You cannot control your thoughts and your reactions because the biggest part of your brain belongs to your satanic anti-conscience, which has the behavior of a demon. This is a bitter truth you don't want to admit, but you have to recognize it and accept it in order to become really human. While you ignore the evil and absurd intentions reflected in your thoughts, you cannot change your mind and your behavior. You seem to have the behavior of a human being when you are with other human beings, but this doesn't mean that you stop having the behavior of a demon because you are a good actor, and you pretend to be human.

Ghana Life: Fetish Beliefs Still Cast a Shadow

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 09:26:59 -0500

In 1960, three years after Ghana achieved independence, a survey of religions found 38 percent of the population describing themselves as followers of traditional religions. A larger number claimed allegiance to a Christian denomination, mostly Protestant and Catholic, but only one percent said they belonged to an independent Pentecostal or Charismatic church. The religious revolution of the next half century saw a rapid rise in the strength of the Pentecostal/Charismatic churches and a corresponding decline in the membership of traditional religions, leading one to suspect that a coalescence was occurring. It appeared to the outside observer that many of the beliefs and practices of the old fetish religions were being absorbed by the newly founded Christian churches. What was certain, was that belief in the spirit world, and its power to promote good or evil, was still widely held.

Free Will: A Trilogy Of Thoughts

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 07:55:48 -0500

Do we have free will, or do we lack any free will, is one of those Big Questions that have perplexed professional philosophers and scientists and the average layperson too for millennia. The rational and objective part of me says we don't have free will; the more personal and subjective part of me wants me to believe I do have free will. I'd like to think I have free will even though I don't think I have free will. Here are a trilogy of short shorts where I try to come to terms with the paradox.



Ignoring Your Phone Will Distract You

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 14:57:31 -0500

It sounds odd when you perceive it at first, but haven't we all had a reminder that kept itching at the back of our heads whenever our phones vibrate while studying, for example.

Even while I am typing this, I am keeping an eye out on my phone for any messages or notifications.



Ghana and Vietnam: Sleep

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 08:44:15 -0500

The people of Ghana and Vietnam share an equal degree of overall affluence, having for several years kept in step with almost exactly the same Gross National Product (GNP) per capita, but they have very little else in common, except their attitude to sleep. Both possess the ability to fall asleep at any time and in a wide range of situations. Recently, at a busy traffic junction in Hanoi, in spite of a good deal of horn blowing from vehicles trapped behind, a driver remained blissfully slumbering at the wheel of his four-wheel drive saloon, while the motorcycles swarmed around and through the traffic lights on green. This awakening was not recorded, unlike that of a trotro driver on the road to Nsawam who awoke to find himself on the wrong side of the road and in a head-on collision with a car from the French Embassy in Accra.



How To Stop Absurd Thoughts And Become More Intelligent

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 06:25:33 -0500

If you are extroverted the opinion of the world is more important than anything else for you. You must have a balanced attitude and take both into consideration.
