The Sono Fabiç Method of Mind Control Limbic Autism & Autistic Undisciplined Thinking

16 October 2017

"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one" - Albert Einstein

„It’s true, but that’s not a helpful answer!“

How can it be that intelligent and otherwise unbiased, open-minded, rational persons are blind to even the simplest facts or to obvious omissions of important necessary evidence? How can we get a grip on the general “inner mechanics” of how uncorrectable convictions and beliefs arise in our minds independently of their specific social, cultural, political or religious context?

The Swiss psychiatrist and “discoverer” of the diagnosis «Schizophrenia» Eugen Bleuler (1857-1939) had asked himself this very same question already a good century ago in 1919 when he wrote his celebrated book: Autistic-Undisciplined Thinking in Medicine and its Conquest. Indeed the answer to this and many similar questions is still important today and challenges, in particular, the tactics and strategies of how medical doctors, politicians and the media at large communicate with their colleagues and with their addressees (patients, citizens and public, respectively).

To this end I have written this short essay to further explore this problem on the basis of a Swiss television show: SRF-ARENA (24. February 2017) and its employment of what I coin The Sono Fabiç Method using austistic-undisciplined thinking to defame a knowledgeable and competent Swiss historian, Daniele Ganser (1972*).

Think about it …
Usually, an «understanding» can be corrected and accordingly modified on the basis of new facts derived from reliably convincing and believable information. The progression of an «understanding» based upon facts from attitude to opinion to conviction to belief to illusion to delusion is accompanied by personal experience which consciousness researchers call «qualia», like our experiences of color, pleasure and pain. Once arriving at or above the level of conviction, an «understanding» often overcomes the temptation to think otherwise and resists all intellectual-rational contradictory arguments to the point of withstanding the most horrible torture and threat of death (martyrdom). A change can usually only then occur through conversion to a new conviction or belief, the experience of a contradictory illusion (mirage) or the outbreak of a new delusion along the line of “I am now Buddha and no longer Jesus!” The opposite of a «truth» is a falsehood, but the opposite of a belief is just another belief.

Religious and other cults and propaganda-driven dictatorships are standard examples of sociocultural systems designed and dedicated to converting naïve, otherwise reasonable members by programming uncorrectable convictions and beliefs into their otherwise healthy minds. Although there are deprogramming measures that claim to assist a person who holds a controversial belief system in changing those beliefs and abandoning allegiance to the social group associated with the religious, political, economic, or whatever belief system, this is not a very easy thing to do.

You might have an adult person who is absolutely convinced that they could never learn to speak Chinese. If you now kidnap him or her and force them to live in China and spend time only with Chinese people, they will indeed, for better or worse, more or less gradually learn the Chinese language according to their innate talent for language. Once learned, however, they will never be able to no longer understand Chinese no matter how hard they might try. The same thing goes for playing a musical instrument or for riding a bicycle. We go from an initial phase of unconcious incompetence (“Never heard of China!”) through an intermediate phase of conscious incompetence (“I don’t understand Chinese!”) through a second intermediate phase of consious competence (“I can understand Chinese if I pay attention and concentrate hard enough.”) to a final phase of unconscious competence (“I simply get it!”) A person can always learn another language or sport or whatever but once they’ve arrived at a state of unconscious competence with anything, there’s no going back! The same thing goes for habit or addiction. What a person can do, however, is to decide not to engage in an unwanted unconscious competence – a bad habit or an addiction -, no matter how tempting it might be to continue on with it.
One can imagine that convictions and beliefs, like any language or other unconscious competence, can facilitate an ignorant life by lightening the burden and responsibility of indecision, doubt and uncertainty. But, how does it happen – in our body, in our mind, in our spirit – that an attitude or conviction, originally open to change, can decay and degenerate into a rigid delusion cemented into the core of conviction and belief (the radicalisation of orthodoxy)?

So, why can’t we simply avoid giving in to temptation and stick to the facts?
