An Insider-look at Reliving
Having read the Reflection (Another Look at Reliving) and having been guided by the Primal Principles / Evolution in Reverse, during 40 years, I couldn’t ask for a more accurate description of how I have experienced and understood that the early traumatic input influenced my function and behavior. Since I’m not only a neurotic but also an epileptic, I can underline your statement “It is rarely a brain disease; that is concocted by those who fiddle around in neurons and synapses and do not see the brain reacting to experiences”.
However, modern medicine has to whack “the very early pre-verbal experiences” back. They have to make the world spin around. For millions if not billions of patients the symptoms / serious diseases like allergies, high blood pressure, cancer etc., etc. is a reality. They have no time to ask “why”. Their pain and their social, political, religious and economical influences are setting the priority lists for science and the scientists. This tremendously accumulated force, which you so persistently criticize, is propelled by evolution.
Your position is the intuitive, brilliant outsider, who sometimes tell about how The Primal Therapy can cure pre-verbal experiences. Sometimes you speak of a flawless development from life before birth, in a world full of people with neuroses, sufferings and often with a shortened life-span. The sufferers need immediate help for their symptoms, and you cannot / don’t want to multiply your therapeutic relief efforts. What is the short-term alternative since you reject the scientists’ efforts?
Fortunately there is a growing group of young people who follow both their instincts and the message of love, touch and attention to the children they put in the world. Research will catch up and, eventually, develop methods to measure, describe / define your intuitive knowing how experience changes us. And I suppose that is what you are after!
