The 4th Annual Symposium on Psycho-Catalytic Meta-Agents
In Symposium Prefaces past, we traditionally offered in this space the background, or history, if you will, of the entire PsyCataMetaAge movement, starting with the early germination of a model back in October 2007, and leading up to the very first Symposium in 2010. We provided, of course, Hiller’s notable deviations from the now-agreed-upon basic terminologies for thought models from which we all operate, as well as a few of the more notable schismatic sects that have gone on to form competing theoretical models that most mainstream meta-psyche scholars dismiss as untenable. But with this, our 4th Annual Symposium, we think the vast majority of our audience will thoroughly know the history, the outmoded schemas, as well as the basic structures of thought models. With that said, we would like to use the remaining space of this Preface to outline some of the exciting areas that PsyCataMetaAge studies are taking us.
Broadly speaking (and no doubt arguably speaking to a few attendees and presenters), the areas of current and future PsyCataMetaAge exploration and discourse can be summed up in five distinct veins, namely:
Þ the Reichenstachler Hierarchies—also known as the German Eight, wherein Meta-Agents evolve organically to transproduce the governing thought bodies around which the lower human forms orbit.
Þ the Faustino Process Model—also known as the Devil’s Bargain Game, wherein Meta-Agents are constructed systematically to punish the lower human forms when they experience too much success.
Þ the Zapakha Postulates—probably the broadest attempt yet to encompass the entire methodology of PsyCataMetaAge thought, but the least rigorous in definition, and the least accepted by the current Symposium thought leaders.
Þ the Bunn Algorithms—probably the most rigorous attempt to describe our work in mathematical form, but the least understood by most of the participants, and also considered unlikely to be the key into acceptance by so-called “hard science” of PsyCataMetaAgology.
Þ Yasuzoko’s Thirty-nine Offerings of Wisdom—we are always delighted each year by Yasuzoko’s Thirty-nine Haikus, Koans and Proverbs, and this year’s offerings are no less stunning. Yasuzoko, of course, is the name of the first Japanese thought leader, Koko Yasuzoko, but now her energizing methods of restructuring the core models in new forms are, of course, composed by thousands of professors worldwide in hopes that they will make the Symposium Thirty-nine.
Within each of these areas we tend to see new Eastern thought puzzles, mathematical formulae, as well as metaphysical, philosophical, and social theories put forth. Very few members of the current crop of PsyCataMetaAge thought leadership would argue that his or her system is to be the standard-bearer as we move forward in these exciting, maturing years of Psycho-Catalytic Meta Agent study and exposition.
Indeed, the maturation of PsyCataMetaAge seemed to be the keyword for this year’s Symposium, as almost all attendees felt that the old garments of infancy were unnecessary to be donned, and could freely discuss the pressing issues that will no doubt span much of the lifeblood of the next several years of study.
While each attendee contributed generously to ensure the maximum in quality Symposium knowledge facilitation, nobody holds the slightest illusion that the Symposium could have been possible in all of its grandeur without the generous sponsorship of our closest allies. We’d like to thank the Pastures Exploratory Committee, the Crumbwell Foundation and the Greentree Fund for generous grants to make this year’s Symposium possible. As always, we hope our members spent time outside of the conference area and hotel grounds to “reconnect” with the lower human forms that provide us fodder for our studies.
We are convinced that PsyCataMetaAge 2013 was an exceptional event and we hope that the information we have aggegated herein will provide you with new ideas for your research and with new opportunities for partnerships with other research groups.

How to anticipate new lower human forms
Abstract: Any good model of human behavior should be able to not only successfully map existing qualities, be they acceptable norms or norm deviations, but also anticipate new ones that will arise (especially so-called pathologies) and find their way into the DSM-IV. While most PsyCataMetaAge research has heretonow focused on making our theory more robust and successful in everyday practice, we would like to review how applying our own organic transproduction hierarchies can effect possible approaches that will anticipate the next generation of lower human forms. We will describe how each lower human form needs essentially the same type of “psycho-socio-ecosystem,” if you will, to thrive, which is a standard and well-known part of our theory. Then, we will outline a few anticipated models of current and future technology that will impact how individuals negotiate with the outside world, thereby disrupting current human form ecosystems.
Keywords: future lower human forms, psychological ecosystems, anticpating pathologies
About Otto Reichenstachler
Herr Prof. Reichenstachler is a renowned world thought leader at the Viennese Mapping Institute where he has successfully trained thousands of students in the Reichenstachler Organic Transproduction Hierarchical Methodologies, a well-known system that has been employed to cure everything from autism to schizophrenia to video game addiction. His current research involves showing how small communities that have been trained in his system can have positive effects on their neighboring communities. One notable example is the oft-cited “rednecks to Rhodes Scholars” experiment in eastern Mississippi. Otto Reichenstachler has recently published a book titled, Curing all the Doctors (Gesundheit für alle Doktoren), and is currently touring the virtual environments in support of his book.
The reluctance to make a mental disorder analogous to a living thing, specifically an organism, comes from 20th Century Western medicine’s earnest desire to distance itself from its heritage as a general catch-all collective of religious figures, witch doctors, shamans, voodoo priests and various peculiarly American assorted quacks, all of would readily tag a given disorder as being the observed outcome of some form of demonic possession, or in some cases, the mental aberrations themselves were catalogued as various and sundry demons. Greentree and Von Stiglovitch have thoroughly outlined and demonstrated in their work how the lower human forms of PsyCataMetaAge are distinctly different than, and not to be confused with such earlier belief systems’ demonologies.
In the process, though, we believe that our early pioneers have left a critical void that might prevent exceptional progress from taking place. Our interpretation of their theoretical models leaves us with the understanding that the lower human thought forms are to be considered as being analogous to badly written computing code, misfiring algorithms that require the work of more expert programmers to rewrite, debug and rebuild. We feel that most humans who cultivate their peculiar thought forms are not working so much as lay programmers, but are more like hapless gardeners, whose gardens are not only subject to the presence or lack of green thumbs, but also must be considered in light of the ecosystems of the entire social environment that the subject dwells in. We should also add that by saying “social environment” we mean not only the subject’s daily encounters with work, school, church, family, neighbors, friends—but also adjunct and tangential encounters, like the world as it is on the commute, at the gym, on the television, in the computer, on the mobile, etc.—in short, wherever the mind receives input, be it external or internal.
In some respects, such extensive and detailed assessment might seem unnecessary or an enormously unproductive undertaking. Our participant subjects are already generally using social-networking logging and tracking software, and gladly report almost all of their activities. We make sure the reports are tagged and codified in such a way so to make it easy to map environmental cues to maladies, aberrations and disorders. For instance, a mild OCD of counting the number of times the range is checked before leaving the house can typically be mapped to earlier imbibing of caffeine, food or pharmaceuticals, and is often associated with the subject’s sex life or work life. Data correlation techniques are so widely available, that it becomes almost child’s play to discover how an unwanted lower human form is perpetrated by other activities that are or are not being practiced.
As most conference participants and future readers know, this is all part of the standard Reichenstachler Organic Transproduction Hierarchical Methodologies, and much experimental data has been recorded for how we have successfully ended even some of the most tragic forms of human pathologies by carefully noting the ecosystems that breed the thought forms that spur (or catalyze) the behaviors. For section 2, we offer the real treat—our present and future predictive modeling, where we examine several new technological advances that impact or will impact society, and therefore create new disorders that will inevitably be codified and added to the cumbersome DSM-IV, and then be bombed in scattershot fashion with various pharmaceuticals.
2 Key present technologies that impact the psychological ecosystem
2.1 Generation Hive
Probably the most interesting shift that has taken place in the last ten years is how the vast majority of affluent humanity views its privacy. What began as a wave of users creating digital content that described many of their daily activities has reached an unheard of level of self-as-collective with many individuals opting to allow companies like Google, Apple or Microsoft embed chips in them so that they receive advertising dollars for simply transmitting their thoughts and activities to massive quantum data aggregators. Many of us have a friend, colleague or family member who had the chips embedded in their children at birth so they could monitor their child’s every thought and move.
While many of the adults who’ve opted for the chip tend to leave almost all of their daily monitored thoughts and activities set to “private,” most pre-teens and early adolescents do quite the opposite, claiming to care very little about whether or not adults and the rest of the world see the activities they engage in and the thoughts they have.
These children have been labeled “Generation Hive” for their behavioral likeness to the proverbial hive minds of science fiction. Indeed, when you observe a group of them about in public, there is an eerie choreography to their movements, as they communicate almost exclusively via their chips. Almost all businesses and banks have built-in “hive detectors” to alert the proprietors and clerks when a group communicating in tandem walks into their stores. Therefore, these kids seem to be rather harmless, as their group communication, often cloaked, can’t seem to be used to orchestrate any type of great crimes. Any given Vegas casion will, of course, have filled the chip frequencies with noise to prevent cheating.
We’ve seen great leaps in genius arise from children with these embedded chips. As it has become rather simple to provide them with what we believe to be a rudimentary education, many teenage children are exhibiting prodigious displays of talent in the arts and sciences.
On the flipside of all this, we’ve also seen a great number of “suicides” that were later attributed to the work of a given group outing an unwanted member through means of intense teasing and mind games that should probably be more properly described as psychological warfare. It is believed that some of these groups will actually take in a socially retarded peer as a member solely for the purpose of bullying him or her, but such rumors are as of yet unconfirmed.
Those of us who have done a goodly amount of research into the behavior of cults can draw parallels to such groups when we witness what is taking place with Generation Hive. Each group generally has one or a few strong personalities that dominate the order and dictate what the other members will do and think. And, each group has one or a few very weak personalities that cannot cope or keep up with the other members of the group, but are too afraid to leave the group for fear of later retribution for disloyalty. What’s interesting is that the known suicides include all different types of members—the bullies, the average kids, and those that lag behind. It is likely that the group tends to regulate itself as a whole, and any strong personalities that become overly manipulative or simply fail to live up to everyone’s expectations are out of necessity ousted rather than simply demoted.
While there is very little we can do for the children who are thick in the middle of hives, and next to nothing we can do for the dead, we are charged with the responsibility of taking preventative measures with children who have yet to become part of such groups, as well as treat the ones that are kicked out of their groups, but live.
The former, preventative measures, consists of giving our youngest children clear ego-identities by grounding them completely to their physical worlds, and empowering them with successes that they only could have achieved as individuals. In a former era, this was generally described as self esteem building, and there is, to be for sure, a goodly amount of that involved, but also, we rely on providing these kids with PsyCataMetaAges that are uniquely their own, or basic chants that we compel them to modify to match the world as they see it. So, a basic grounding chant like “Om-ne-padne-hum” can undergo several transmutations by the child, and while such a chant is being uttered, we engage the child in a simple activity like walking or tai-chi.
The latter, reacclimating former hive members to the world as individuals involves first making them feel extremely welcome and important in an artificial group, usually one comprised of other former hive members, then slowly building their ego identities back up by making the need to be part of a group seem less and less vital. Some students have commented that this is resemblant of the fabled 12-step plans, where a group of former addicts all share their stories and work with partners toward rehabilitation. Our research has shown that such groups are only productive to a degree at removing an addiction, but many of them today actually become more like the hives we are trying to save our children from, rather than support systems that empower individuals. We do not want our patients to feel as if they need a group to stay alive, in fact, we are trying to achieve quite the opposite result.
(Unfortunately, as most of you know, all attempts to simply remove the chips from the child have resulted in complete madness, as the child then undergoes a transformation akin to what happened following the barbaric frontal lobotomy.) We invite all participants of the conference to review our paper titled “Rebuilding the individual from scratch: escape from Generation Hive” to get a more complete idea of the PsyCataMetaAges employed in treating these patients. Let’s move on to a couple of other topics, Quantum Consciousness Teleportation and SSRI-Zombieism.
2.2 Quantum Consciousness Teleportation (QCT)
Most of us have participated in a quantum-consciousness teleportation (QCT) seminar, and more than a few of us would likely admit in confidence that we have had QCT sexual encounters with various folks from around the world. Since we are all keen students of the lower human forms, it is probably sufficient to surmise that our audience has never experienced any serious degree of addiction to QCT, or risked dehydration and starvation to remain in a QCT environment.
We would be rather foolish, however, to dismiss the obvious statistics: over 80 million QCT addicts check themselves into QCT rehab worldwide each year. To anyone living under a rock, the QCT addicts check themselves in via QCT, essentially making them less addicts to the “QCT crack” that so widely permeates the quantosphere, and merely addicts to “QCT Diet Coke” as has been termed by many pundits and so-called experts far outside of our field. Are these 80 million brand new addicts, or perhaps a small fraction of repeat visitors, going to rehab out of fear of completely losing their jobs, marriages or touch with reality?
Further investigation indicates that it is actually somewhere in the middle. About 35 million people repeatedly fall into the trap of being addicted to QCT porn, gambling, drugs, etc., then run to the nearest QCT rehab. The rest, for whatever reason, do not seem to be repeat offenders, or are assuming new QCT identities, which in this day and age is almost impossible to do—certainly only the province of the keenest hacker.
First, the question of the traditional practitioner of medicine should be raised simply for the sake of playing the good devil’s advocate: if almost all of society is busy participating in normal QCT activities on a regular basis, like Hollywood entertainment, rock music appreciation, news, community conversation, or a few hours of games each week—then, what does it matter if the QCT addict is taken down from QCT porn, gambling, drugs, total immersion, and placed into a state where he or she can work a full-time job and raise a family, while still enjoying his or her QCT addiction in the form of normal QCT activities for several hours a week? We provide the clear and obvious answer to such an absurd, socially-brainwashed question: do you treat the disease of alcoholism by getting hardcore alcoholics to become merely functional ones?
Of course not! The truth is, present day psychiatric medicine has nothing to offer in the way of a real solution for the rampant disease QCT addiction that is spiraling out of control. Nor does it likely wish to offer anything. QCT subscriptions generally make their providers an average gross profit of $2100 a head each year. Most providers are your usual suspects—phone and cable companies that initially almost went bankrupt with the introduction of QCT to the virtual world. Their lobbying influence is almost as great as that of the pharmaceutical companies, and like the pharma companies, they have the vast majority of legislators hooked to their product.
Before we become permanently perched on our soapbox, we appreciate the kind reminder of the impatient audience for why we are here: to talk about the real cure, not the phony one.
Unlike the child who has recently been ousted from a hive, the QCT addict is rather entrenched within a virtual world supplanted by quantum-nano technology. In short, he or she is some place far away, even if the body is easily locatable. We certainly cannot go QCT ourselves and pin down the actual consciousness itself, as the online agents outside of QCT brothels and hash houses look for us would-be cops, and attempt to annhilate them. The service providers will not dare discontinue service unless payment is past due by three months. We could do something criminal, like hack into the QCT user’s paying grid and hijack the payments to the QCT service provider, but we are prepared to offer a much more elegant, basic solution for the addiction: PsyCataMetaAges delivered on either side of the user’s physical body via the physical ears of the user.
Surprise! If you whisper, speak or shout into the ears of someone who is millions of miles away in a quantumly teleported world, that person will eventually be brought back, as Creation has a pretty damn good reason for tethering the soul to the body, and the body always wins. Now, we could fill the person’s body with fluids, and force urination, or some such activity to press the consciousness back into service of the body, but this has often proven to give rather mixed results, as many who are so lost that they are wasting away from dehydration or starvation are likely to return to urinate.
But, the right combination of words spoken brings them back every time. What is the right combination? You say the user’s name, and then say, “you are loved in the here and now, and needed for so much more.” Sounds crazy and a bit cliched? It works! So, if little Timmy is wasting away in the throes of a QCT addiction to sports betting, instead of studying to become an engineering grad, say, “Timmy, you are loved in the here and now, and needed for so much more.” You have to repeat it hundreds, if not thousands of times, of course. And, you must say it in tandem with another individual on the other side of the user, both speaking directly into the user’s ears.
Remember, the lower human thought forms cannot survive in a psycho-ecosystem where they are starved of all the ingredients necessary for their survival. You are not simply chanting mind-numbing mantras to drill a hole into the user’s worldview, but are planting the seeds of disruptive thought forms that will ultimately prey upon the QCT-addictive thought forms.
(Unfortunately, as most of you know, all attempts to simply dephase the the spin cycles of the quantum particles that are performing the teleportation have resulted in complete madness, as the user then undergoes a transformation akin to what happened following the barbaric frontal lobotomy.) We invite all participants of the conference to review our paper titled “Rebuilding the individual from scratch: escape from QCT addiction” to get a more complete idea of the PsyCataMetaAges employed in treating these patients. Let’s move on to one other topic that addresses a present malady, SSRI-Zombieism.
We use the more colloquial term for this order, because it is in such wide use throughout much of the mainstream media and conversation networks. The accepted term found in the DSM-IV is, of course, “Long-term brain cell wall degradation due to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors” or “Partridge’s Syndrome,” as some mainstream medicine circles prefer to call it. Almost everyone has a loved one who was diagnosed in the late nineties or early part of this century, who began to exhibit catatonic behavior symptoms after ten or more years of regular, medium-to-high dosing of SSRI’s. While mainstream medicine contends that it always explicitly stated that this class of pharmaceuticals was never intended for long-term use, almost every psychiatric practitioner in the country found it easier to control depression and anxiety and personality disorders by dosing their patients, sometimes bumping up the dosage well beyond the proposed accepted limits, and keeping their patients on these drugs for years at a time.
It is rather unfortunate that the same creators of the illness have rushed in to claim to possess the only cure for it—a new class of pharmaceuticals with absolutely no studies on the long-term effects of this so-called cure. SSRI Zombies, as we all can attest, can effectively function as adults in their states of catatonia—in that they can provide menial services that robots cannot. They can pay their bills on time, as this is entirely automated, remember to feed and bathe themselves, and occasionally will shop for items that need replacing. However, we have also witnessed the utter lack of social participation beyond the merely functional. SSRI Zombies do not write poetry, compose music, paint, or generally even play games or take in feeds. When not working or performing the basic activities for survival, SSRI Zombies sleep or simply sit in darkness, waiting for the clock to tell them what to do next.
Some mainstream practitioners of medicine, in their utter blindness to the damage their freewheeling prescribing of SSRIs has caused, have been so brazen as to argue that there is really no disorder here at all, as SSRI Zombies are neither at harm to themselves or others, and can hold steady paychecks to stay off of government welfare. This frightening logic is insipid at best, as most members of society seeking psychiatric medical attention very much fit the same description—perhaps we should consider taking this logic to its ultimate conclusion, and do away with much of psychiatric medicine—after all, most humans in our Western society, no matter what the psychological malady, can hold down some type of job and will not harm themselves or others.
We jest, of course. SSRI Zombiesm is actually a very serious problem, and we PsyCataMetaAgens do not think in this instance that those who caused the problem should be left to fix it.
What do the current crop of so-called “SSRI-fixers” actually do? These are really nothing more than a highly synthesized class of amphetamines, basically jolting the patient with the pharmaceutical electroshocks after she has had the pharmaceutical equivalent of the prefrontal lobotomy. Our patient will be a much livelier zombie, and might choose to watch television over sleeping or sitting in darkness. We do not think this is a solution; we don’t even see it as a Bandaid.
How do proponents of the Reichenstachler Organic Transproduction Hierarchical Methodologies propose to solve the SSRI Zombie problem? Our research shows that the SSRI Zombie needs small incongruities to appear throughout his day—a bus that arrives slightly too early, a store that isn’t open when he normally goes shopping, his office desk rotated 90 degrees. Some of these changes, of course, are possible for a few PsyCataMetaAge practitioners to implement. However, with the permission of a family member, or even the patient himself, we can often work wonders by rearranging where flatware, cups, dishes, etc. are stored in the kitchen, introducing an exotic plant in the patient’s work or home environment, etc.
Then, we begin to give the SSRI Zombie a feed of our PsyCataMetaAgens, delivered directly into the brain along with the daily news, shows, music, etc. Our feed for this kind of patient happens sporadically, and is very brief. We provide something for the patient to look forward to—not rewards like sweets or vactions, as the patient could care less about those kinds of things—we tell a brief tale, end it abruptly, and say “Stay tuned for more to come.”
In short, the patient needs chaos, instability, unpredictability, etc. At first, we attempt to impress such non-trivial and harmless changes, and this often is enough to snap a patient out of the fugue. When this fails, we begin trying to gently scare the patient, leaving vague threats of danger to life in limb in our feeds, stating that such tragedies can only be avoided if the patient changes his route to work, or morning routine. If a patient is utterly immune to worries of safety for life and limb, then the last resort must take place—the patient is kidnapped, taken to a desolate environment with a week’s worth of rations, and dropped off. We track the patient’s vital signs to make sure he is surviving, but only interfere if he is in imminent danger from bears or hive gangs. We also provide the patient with an inexpensive copy of Proust’s Rememberances of Things Past, and tell him that it is an encrypted instruction manual for return to civilization.
While the patient may initially resent what has been done to him, he discovers that he has been “healed” by his own survival mechanisms. We do not fully offer this treatment for anyone under the age of eighteen. For children and teens experiencing SSRI-Zombieism, we provide an artificial environment, a biodome, if you will, where the child thinks she is actually in the wilderness.
(Unfortunately, as most of you know, all attempts to simply make the patient totally stop and go completely cold turkey from SSRIs have resulted in complete madness, as the patient then undergoes a transformation akin to psychosis. Earlier generations of SSRIs, when stopped suddenly, merely made patients mildly suicidal, but the last generation of SSRIs put on the market is said to cause withdrawl symptoms worse than those associated with abandoning heroin.) We invite all participants of the conference to review our paper titled “New environments for a deserted psyche: escape from SSRI Zombieism” to get a more complete idea of the PsyCataMetaAges employed in treating these patients. Let’s move on to discussion of key future technologies that will no doubt impact the human psychological ecosystem.
3 Key future technologies that impact the psychological ecosystem
3.1 Clones and the Grundig Test
In 2010, Dr. Charles Grundig, a noted game theorist and computer science professor, proposed “The Grundig Test,” a response to the well-known Turing Test, where a human poses a series of questions to an entity to determine whether it is man or machine. The Turing Test was, of course, intended for computers. The Grundig Test is a theoretical model that is said to be able to determine whether or not the human being questioned is running the biological software provided by billions of years of evolution or a clone of its “Master,” running programs the Master has taught it so that the Master can stay home and participate in leisure while the clone “Slave” does the Master’s work.
In February of last year, Congress passed a resolution stating that each adult human was allowed up to three clones of himself or herself, and each clone must identify itself as a programmed drone when prompted. (We all know how effective this will actually be.) Already, we are hearing reports around the country of clones of a given human numbering in the dozens. As many are programmed to completely self immolate upon discovery by undercover federal agents, it is almost impossible for the U.S. to enforce this resolution. Of course, Congress had initially proposed various tracking chips be inserted at the time of cloning, or that cloningware manufacturers make such implementation part of the inherent process of the technology. It was soon demonstrated that all cloningware was imminently hackable, and that most of those wealthy enough to afford cloningware could easily purchase chip cloaking devices off of the black market, anyway.
What are the future implications of multiple genetic copies, often with reproductive systems still intact, running around doing their Master’s bidding? The social and gene pool implications, are, of course, almost impossible to fathom, as it has been demonstrated that Slaves can be hacked by those who are not their Masters, and the software installed by the Master can be disabled, thereby creating a “freed” Slave, or be overrode and the Slave for all practical purposes receives a new Master who may very well look nothing like him or her.
We PsyCataMetaAges, as a general rule, are subject to a conscience, sense of morals or ethings, and while certainly no longer shocked at what humans are doing to themselves, still have barometers of right and wrong that many mainstream practitioners of medicine do not. There is likely no more than a handful of us in this audience who would debate whether or not the practice of cloning ourselves then enslaving the clones should be stopped. For those who think clone slavery is perfectly ethical, what follows will likely seem moot and misguided.
Those of us of the Reichenstachler Organic Transproduction Hierarchical Methodology school believe it is our duty to spot enslaved clones; perform the Grundig test to obtain absolute veracity that we are, in fact, speaking to a clone; and then offer some basic PsyCataMetaAge techniques to free the Slave and make it impossible for him or her to be enslaved again. Before cloning humans was ever perfected by science and then marketed by the soulless, nature gave us near-perfect clones in the form of identical twins. While identical twins often seemed to be eerily in sync with one another, there was never the slightest debate that each was his or her own human, with natural rights and freedoms to be accorded him or her.
To administer the Grundig test:
Ask the clone what kindergarten was like.
Remember the answer—the clone, if she is one, will likely have an immediate answer, or isn’t programmed with this particular memory and will ask “what is kindergarten?” An immediate answer isn’t proof of clonehood, but take note of it.
Ask the clone what being born was like.
While some parents have taken to transplanting their memories of their children’s births into their children, such individuals will likely be under the age of five, and we are working almost exclusively with adults here. At any rate, children with implanted memories will describe the process as a detached observer, and will describe the birth in many of its gory details. The clone will speak of adjusting to the brightness of the universe or the darkness of the universe, adjusting to sounds, colors, smells, learning to move strange limbs, etc. Some clones may be programmed to answer as a non-clone would, and say “I don’t know, I was too young to remember,” or look at the questioner as if he or she were completely mad. Don’t be fooled, just note the reaction—is it carefully crafted or spontaneous and unassuming?
Ask the clone if he or she would ever kill for anyone.
Almost every clone manufacturer hardcodes into the cloningware the “kill imperative,” i.e., the clone ultimately must kill at his or her Master’s request.
Ask the clone to compose poetry.
The clone will either compose perfectly rhymed couplets or sonnets, or write childlike, terrible verse. Almost no Masters will take the time to program their Slaves to compose poetry, and the ones that do tend to go overboard with the effort. For the rest that don’t—remember, that clones are mentally and experientially little children underneath that basic layer of adult programming.
Ask the clone what kindergarten was like.
No clone can not give an identical answer to this. A clone is either programmed with a scattering of the Master’s memories, and will describe kindergarten word for word as before, or isn’t programmed with this particular memory and will ask “what is kindergarten?” Since a clone is mentally a child, he or she isn’t usually perturbed by being asked the same question, while most of us take offense to repeated questions the older we get.
We will designate these as being five separate questions. If at least four of the five answers the individual provides to the questions bespeak clonehood, then ask him or her outright if he or she is a clone. The clone is hardcoded to say yes, and many Masters no longer even bother hacking their cloningware to change the answer, as they hardly fear retribution for having more than three of them. If you are willing to risk getting slapped in the face or worse by causing a major social faux pas, you can, of course, ask any given person outright if he or she is a clone.
For those individuals we believe to be clones, but answered “no” to the direct question of their clonehood, a simple “human empathy” request for help can ferret out 99% of the others. Drop something and feign a back problem, and ask the individual to pick it up. Unless he or she is a total SSRI Zombie or QCT/Hive/Zone/etc. junkie, any given human will likely perform the request out of basic human kindness—believe it or not, under so much of our bizarre modern collective soul, we still do possess this—while a clone will simply watch with no expression.
So, you’ve met a clone at work, in the park, in the grocery store, at a bar, etc., what do you do next?
Legally speaking, once a clone’s cloningware is disabled, he or she is considered an individual human, with the basic rights and responsibilities afforded to all humans by the World Congress of 2012. Newly freed slaves are like toddlers or little kids, they are operating off of 0-5 years’ worth of life experience, knowing only how to do what their Masters were having them do. Many adjust by ending up living lifestyles similar to SSRI Zombies, they only know to go to work, eat, sleep, and play games or be entertained by feeds. Many end up committing crimes or becoming threats to themselves and to society, and are sent to adult prisons where they are generally eaten alive by the creatures in those disintegrated institutions.
A few non-profit organizations have sprung up to try to help newly freed slaves meet the challenges of rapidly assimilating and negotiating the art of being adults in our society. They are mostly underfunded and scant in number, compared to the explosion of adult children that is almost upon us. With that said, before you take on the task of freeing a slave, make sure there is an adequate organization like N-HUMAN or DE-CLONE in your area. Otherwise, you are about to simply turn a miserable life into a tragic one.
We of the Reichenstachler Organic Transproduction Hierarchical Methodology school are also working hard to perfect PsyCataMetaAges that only sever the connection between Slave and Master, but allow the newly freed Slave to retain as much of the programmed adult skills as possible. These are top-level hierarchical strategies, involving intensive work with clones that cannot be undertaken from mere casual contact.
To give our audience a basic idea of some of the groundbreaking work we are doing in this area, we will round out this part of the presentation by giving brief examples. What we are essentially undertaking is rapid-instillation or rapid-remembering of the once fabled “selfish gene” that makes a person seek out what is best for him or her, rather than what is best for another human being. This is dangerous work, as it is all-too-easy to turn a clone into a greedy thief, rapist, killer or some other predator of society.
As a simple example, we might say something like this in the vicinity of a known clone, “I skipped out of work early yesterday, and treated myself to ice cream. It made me very happy. I also bought myself a small gift, since I couldn’t wait for Christmas.” We need to remember that the clone is basically a child, receiving the world simultaneously as a slave for an adult Master inside an adult body, and as a very young human, all-too new to this earth. If we can bring small puppies or kittens into the vicinity of the clone, all the better. If we can burst into Christmas carols and other childhood songs, we are beginning to create an environment of helping the clone realize basic childlike selfishness.
Then, we begin the process of daring, double-dog daring, triple-dog daring, taunting, etc. Don’t put the clone in harm’s way, but tease him or her if she will not participate in office hijinx, practical jokes, and other harmless mischief. This sounds almost cruel, but it is terribly important to teach the clone to realize that while being good to one’s self is infinitely better than being good to one’s Master, one also carries an infinite number of social constraints that most of us have been learning for decades. The clone is learning to please himself while accepting that peer pressure will keep him from becoming a social outcast or threat.
3.2 The coming insanity of PetKids
Many of the audience scoff that the animal/human hybrid will never be allowed outside of the most unethical, sinister laboratories, that Congress will keep Science well within the bounds of acceptable humanity. Many probably said the same thing about the chips that are now mandatory in all children entering kindergarten, or the proliferation of clone slaves, or the decision by the World Congress of 2012 to declare severely AIDS, famine and wartorn parts of Africa and Southeast Asia zones slated for nuclear annhilation as an acceptable means of saving the rest of humanity.
We are almost completely certain that the coming PetKids technologies will get the green light of approval from Congress. Most of us have read about this coming disease that will be afflicted upon our race, possibly blighting it for good. As many young and not-so-young couples seek to have children for the first time, they balk at the thought of taking on the enormous responsibility that comes with such a venture, and what’s more, wonder if they wouldn’t prefer to simply keep dogs or cats. Many older, single adults only keep pets for companionship. All at some time or another yearn for the ability to communicate with their pets as if they were fellow humans.
It has been demostrated by three separate researchers, Neapolotino of Italy, Plaschwitz of Poland, and Sung of Korea—that talking, “intelligent” animals can be created from the genetic splicing and combining of human and animal DNA. We were not priviliged to see the undoubtedly voluminous mass of their malformed experiments—the mutants and freaks of nature who were not pleasant poodles conversing in French about brie and Proust, or handsome German Shepherd dogs that had sophisticated palattes for finer beers and could discuss at length the merits of Wagner. Nevertheless, the public display of their successes has fueled a huge public demand for pets that talk.
Are these animals possessed of, for a better word, human souls? Should they be afforded the same rights and responsibilities as we humans, and put to work, or are they already working as pets?
We of the Reichenstachler Organic Transproduction Hierarchical Methodology school anticipate that there will be a wide array of pets unleashed upon the earth and our genepool—ranging from intellects as sharp as Einstein’s, to dim, canine brains that merely parrot human speech. We expect that, in spite of our own abhorrance to even the thought of it, that some of these so-called PetKids will be capable of creating offspring with humans, and that some especially perverse humans will attempt intercourse with their PetKids, and that some PetKids gone completely bad may attempt to rape humans. As terribly disgusting as it is to raise such a possibility—it is one that is staring us in the face, is very real, and other than lobbying Congress, there is little we can do about the coming crisis in our gene pool, except wait for the problems to manifest themselves, and devise PsyCataMetaAge strategies that solve these problems.
At the Reichenstachler Organic Transproduction Hierarchical Methodology school, we have several keen students of human and animal behavior working together with children and pets to develop compact PsyCataMetaAges that can be delivered to put a mentally ravaged PetKid in a state of submissiveness. Between Pavlov, the Dog Whisperer, and Reichenstachler, we are devising a system that will minimize the psychological impact of human hybrids on our system, and make the PetKids as well-adjusted to society as they possibly can be.
Once again we PsyCataMetaAge practitioners will be left to clean up the mess. We will be experiencing a proliferation of psychological abnormalities in human, machine, and human/animal hybrid forms. While many who pose serious threats to humans will be simply put out of their misery, many many more will be left to their own devices, to try to exist in a world that wasn’t made for them, nor really they for it.
We are working especially hard to train as many students as possible, so that they may go out into the world armed with an arsenal of PsyCataMetaAges and restabilize what humans are working so hard to knock askew.
While there will always be lower human thought forms to contend with, their impact can be minimized and kept isolated, as they once were before we humans became so globally interconnected. The basic underlying premise to remember is that any illness that is strictly mental, as well as many that are not, can be starved of the “oxygen” needed to perpetuate it.

Disrupting lower human form cycles by inserting
Ex-Comm. Fr. Antonio Faustino
Abstract: Many early records of human mental illnesses attributed the maladies to the work of the Devil himself, or various sub-Devils, i.e., deamons, angels, sprites, faeries, etc. During the early part of the Enlightenment, much was written about the inquisitive work of Man being somehow bargaining with the Devil himself. Even into our own current era of social history-making, we experience common phrases like, “oh she must have sold her soul to the Devil to become that successful.” Most people today who are possessed of mental illnesses, pathologies, disorders and neuroses do not see themselves as being under the spell of the Devil, per se, but they do, however, tend to be incapable of seeing themselves as anything but prisoners to their illnesses. We have perfected a kind of reversal of this tendency in humans, offering them the chance to be the Devil, and in doing so, provide the lower thought forms with a revised “prisoner’s dilemna” game. Ultimately, our patients become the prison guards who hold the keys to their freedom, and the illnesses are locked away and left to rot for the rest of the patients’ lives.

About Ex-Comm. Fr. Antonio Faustino
Ex-Comm. Fr. Antonio Faustino received his D.D. from Cannoli Ricotta seminary in Southern Italy in 1986, and was a resident priest at St. Rudolpho’s Parish in Buffalo, NY for ten years before deciding that his ongoing studies clashed with Papal Law. He received a grant from the Greentree Fund in 2005, and has continued to do his own groundbreaking work in affiliation with PsyCataMetaAge’s founding fathers. While Reichenstachler builds most of his research around notions of psycho-ecosystems, Faustino sees his models as being more conducive to immediate progress, as his game-playing theories of psychological disorders tend to be derivative of political and social scientific game theory.
Most of our audience members have been exposed to Game Theory at some point in their studies, but few probably made the connection at the time between its power as an economic or political modeling tool, and its potential use as a PsyCataMetaAge modeling vehicle.
Game theory, as defined by many of its theorists, is a branch of applied mathematics that is often used in the context of economics. It studies strategic interactions between agents. In strategic games, agents choose strategies which will maximize their return, given the strategies the other agents choose. The essential feature is that it provides a formal modelling approach to social situations in which decision makers interact with other agents.
We have posited and extensively researched the notion that these agents can be psychological in nature as well, i.e., our standard lower human thought forms. A so-called OCD, like checking the range and locks before leaving for work a number of times, competes with other agents for the subject’s attention, like the agent that promises a reward of getting to work on time, the agent that supplies the need for more coffee or the urge to grab newsfeeds one more time, etc. Why does a seemingly irrational behavior-causing agent like an OCD “win” in the competition for the subject’s attention and decision to act upon it?
PsyCataMetaAge Game Theorists are not so much concerned with the “why,” as much as the “how.” We work with our subjects to determine how they can: insert new, healthier, competing agents that defeat the unhealthy ones; make all of the possible unhealthy agents compete with each other by way of the “prisoner’s dilemna” model until they defeat themselves; see the possibility of the “game” the agents play being something other than a zero-sum game, thereby eliminating the subject’s getting “stuck” in one behavioral mode; or turn all agents into cooperative ones—sometimes useful in resolving certain paranoid states of mind.
Our focus in today’s presentation will be on the second approach, playing competing meta agents off of one another, and instilling in the subject a true sense of being the “prison guard” over his or her lower human forms. While the traditional prisoner’s dilemma offers some insight into how two competing addictions can ultimately “defect,” thereby canceling each other out, we also need to examine an N-Player Prisoner’s Dilemma in Multiple Groups, borrowing from the research by Fletcher and Zwick, 2000, and, of course, Harding’s Tragedy of the Commons.
2 The background of the subject in the case study we will examine
We will call our subject Dennis, withholding his actual name for the sake of anonymity and confidentiality. Dennis is a 33-year old male, of mostly Western European ancestry. He lives in Buffalo, NY, works in the command center of a major CommuteFlight station. By day, Dennis spends most of his time analyzing data feeds and resetting control processes that have spun out of control. Put simply, Dennis makes sure that the software that is automatically written by the control computers remains free of bugs so that our CommuteFlights don’t fall out of the sky. Dennis holds an Associate’s Degree in Computer Science, and aspires to work for a gaming outfit, but is content with his current position as it pays much better than anything he would be qualified for at a game developer.
Dennis is unmarried, never has been married, and has no children. He claims one cat as his own, but expends little effort to provide for the cat. Being of a certain age, Dennis has little to do with hives or QCT activities, but is, by most accepted standards of psychiatric medicine, addicted to (Massively multiplayer online role-playing games) MMORPGs. Dennis calls out sick for work as often as possible, and is rarely actually sick, but too busy participating in joint quests to make it into work. Dennis spends all of his waking time when not at work (or commuting to work) playing a popular virtual game. He spends almost all of his disposable income on upgrades to his game environment, and computer hardware that will make the experience of immersion more complete.
Dennis has barely escaped death from an appendix attack due to his addiction (the addiction didn’t directly cause the attack, of course, he was just too busy playing his favorite online game to see a doctor sooner). He has disconnected with all of his friends in the physical world, contacts his mother about once a year, suffers from heart disease, diabetes, chronic back pain, rapidly deteriorating vision, decreased range of motion in his hands and neck. Dennis regularly receives new prescriptions to pain medicine for many of his physical ailments, and it is safe to say that he is addicted to pain medicine as well. Dennis regularly smokes marijuana and consumes an average of four alcoholic drinks a night. He is adamant that he rarely if ever drinks to the point of intoxication, but admits that he would probably have a difficult time giving up marijuana and alcohol for an extended period of time.
Dennis found us online, he was not referred to us by a concerned friend or family member, nor was he required to seek help for his addictions by any courts or his employer. As far as the eyes of the law and our society are concerned, Dennis is an upstanding citizen who works a full thirty-hour workweek, pays his taxes and bills, and contributes to the well-being of the economy. He is not a predator, nor is he in any way deemed a threat to himself or others, except in the sense that he will probably be an early recipient of a government welfare program by the age of fifty if he does not change his patterns of behavior.
Dennis found us because he, like many people his age and younger, has an aversion to SSRIs and anti-psychotic drugs, having been subjected to them at an early age for a number of misdiagnoses of ADD and ADHD. We are not covered by his employer’s health insurance program, but were offering a free trial study addictions and possibly treat them. We did not promise any cures, and stressed up front with Dennis that all of our studies are ongoing and experimental, nonetheless, we have noted tremendous results.
First, we asked Dennis to identify what he thought were his addictions. He listed online gaming and pain medicine. We also asked him to list what his mother or a close friend would consider to be his addictions. He listed online gaming, pain medicine and alcohol. Dennis, like a lot of regular marijuana users, do not see their abuse of this substance as an addiction. Indeed, it is still technically not considered an addiction, as the dependency tends toward a psychological one, rather than a chemical one. However, it is also no longer disputed that regular marijuana users do undergo similar withdrawl symptoms and have altered brain chemistries which require extended periods of recovery to reach states of previous equilibrium.
So, we compiled our own list of lower human thought forms based on his input. They are, in no particular order of importance (as each “prisoner” will be treated as an equally culpable agent, as each is competing for his attention):
- The escapist/immersion thought form
- The physio-chemical thought form
- The psycho-chemical thought form
- The repetitive-distractive process thought form
Each lower human thought form represents an agent that is competing for a single resource, that resource being Dennis’s attention. We could also add his higher thought forms, his basic survival thought forms, and any other thought forms that might be manifesting themselves via external and internal cues. Just like nations competing for an international resource, like fishing waters or sub-Arctic land mass for oil, so are Dennis’s lower thought forms competing for his attention, his time, his physical self. They are, in actuality, competing for the resource of Dennis.
In the case of several nations competing for fishing waters, it is in the best interest of each nation to maximize the amount of fish netted from the same area. Likewise, in the case of Dennis’s thought forms, each one seeks to maximize the resources of Dennis’s attention, time, and physical self. While at any given moment, Dennis might be seized by all of the thought forms described above, the escapist/immersion thought form has ultimately won the battle, because of a number of strategies both the thought form and Dennis have implemented to make its victory possible.
We can yield, through a process of elimination why the other thought forms will not ultimately be victorious.
Physio-chemical thought forms, like drug and alcohol abuse, masturbation, pursuing the “runner’s high,” and milder addictions like caffeine consumption all share something in common—if taken to their logical conclusions they will either: a. offer diminishing returns until the subject no longer wishes to partake of them, or b. render the subject inert or dead. While we do see cases where such logical conclusions do not stop subjects from habitual use, those are considered acceptable situations for pharmaceutical intervention. To put it bluntly, if the threat of death or boredom doesn’t stop, if only temporarily, a physio-chemical thought form, then the patient is truly hooked in the physical sense and is beyond the help of our PsyCataMetaAge treatments. Which is not to say that we don’t strongly recommend that such cases be treated with PsyCataMetaAge in tandem with pharmaceuticals, we simply do not feel that they can be saved by our “words as drugs” treatment paradigm as it is in its stages of infancy.
Someone like Dennis who does have higher aspirations careerwise, does carry a sense of responsibility to himself and to society to be a non-burden, working member, will never find his physio-chemical thought forms maximizing all of his resources. He is policing the fishing waters, in a sense, and not allowing the nation of Physio-chemical to overfish.
Arguably, Dennis’s lower human thought form that is most consistently maximizing his resources is, of course, the escapist/immersion thought form. Dennis “allows” this one to win, because he can rationalize to a great degree the excessive amount of time spent under this one lower human thought form. He is, after all, hoping to someday get a decent position at a gaming company. Doesn’t he need to play a few games to be able to succeed at his career of choice? The old method-builders would try to teach Dennis that he is, in fact, preventing himself from succeeding at his career of choice because time that he could spend learning to be a better coder and seeking new employment is spent playing online games. This might make sense on paper, and Dennis would probably read it and agree, but then would return to his favorite lower human thought form after a few weeks of altered behavior.
We will not spend any real amount of time trying to find the answer to that question, because we are more interested in “how” we are going to help Dennis out of his hole. We would answer the old method-builders with a question of our own: how can you be certain that Dennis hasn’t developed the particular unattainable career goal that he has because of the unsatisfactory lifestyle he lives, rather than due to a well-thought out inventory of what his talents and skills are? Or, perhaps Dennis plays games too much, AND has the career goal that he does due to some other unseen event in his past. We will certainly not waste our time digging around in Dennis’s past like a bunch of shrinks.
Once again, we will develop a “how to get out” plan, rather than a “why is this happening” plan.
3 How to play unwanted lower human thought forms against each other
For our study, we asked Dennis to spend three days on site at our campus, and we provided him with unlimited access to his favorite online games; and we kept his room stocked with enough alcohol, marijuana and pain medicine to easily kill three-hundred large men. We were more interested in seeing which lower thought form would truly prevail in a zero-sum game, and if Dennis would, in fact, be more interested in his survival, than in his fun. He was allowed to access our kitchen for up to five meals at any time day or night, and had at his disposal unlimited quantities of sandwiches, soups and cereals. Just to round out the experiment, we also dangled another lower human thought form in front of Dennis—the promise of achieving an orgasm every time he pressed a button at his console.
Some of the Reichenstachler group may object to our putting a subject’s life at apparent risk simply to see a thought experiment to its logical conclusion, however, we of the Faustino school carry the ideal that it is perfectly okay for one or a handful of humans to sacrifice their lives for the greater good of mankind. When so many people are losing their lives right now due to the fact that they are so deeply immersed in virtually- and quantumly-induced states of other consciousness to be able to remember to feed themselves, we must allow for the sacrifice of a few.
As we suspected, Dennis almost immediately overdosed on pain medicine and alcohol, but we pumped his stomach and restarted his heart so that we could see if there was any hope of continuing the experiment. For a few days, he stoicly kept to hitting the orgasm button, and drinking himself to sleep while playing his favorite video game. One night, he gorged himself sick on the available food, and then consumed vast quantities of pain medicine and alcohol to make himself feel better.
After overdosing the second time, we felt that Dennis was probably better off staying dead, and we chose not to resurrect him. Also, we had just received an inquiry from a Ruth who claimed that she was obsessed with thoughts of killing herself. Fearing the onset of SSRI-Zombiesm, she had recently stopped taking her prescribed pharmaceuticals—a concoction of SSRIs and sleeping pills, with the occasional thyroid pill administered to counterbalance the sometimes unnatural states of ecstasy or depression she found herself in.
We asked Ruth how she spent her free time, and she said one word: “men.” Ruth would spend about half of her time pursuing long-term monogamous relationships, and half her time pursuing one-night stands and experimental encounters. We set up Ruth’s lower human thought forms thus:
- The physio-chemical thought form
- The psycho-chemical thought form
- The repetitive-distractive process thought form
Although she was adamant that the sexual promiscuity and the drive to kill herself both stemmed from an event in her past (which we urged her not to share, as we feel such “why’s” are not nearly important as the “how” of getting one out of the hole.) We determined, in spite of her protestations to the contrary, that Ruth actually carried a physio-chemical thought form in what could be termed a physical addiction to sex (the promiscuous encounters), as well as a psycho-chemical one (the monogamous pursuits). The suicidal thoughts represented the repetitive-distractive process thought form.
This time, we tried something very much the opposite of what we did with Dennis. We employed a sort of Chinese water torture with Ruth, teasing her with hundreds of lovers that she couldn’t have, and a promise of suicide that we didn’t keep. Then, we asked Ruth how she would kill herself if given any available means, except drugs. She said she preferred death by hanging, so we built in her room an actual mechanism once used to hang prisoners for capital punishment. We showed her how she could, at any time, insert her head into the noose, and press the nearby button that dropped the floor out from under her feet. We asked all of the men Ruth seemed most interested in to return, and told Ruth that all were available for sex at her request.
To round out the lower thought forms presented to Ruth and to act as a control in the study, we also offered her Dennis’s favorite online video game.
To our amazement, Ruth picked but one of the men, left our study, dated and married him, and went back on SSRI’s shortly after becoming a new mother. In short, the results were inconclusive. We cannot post any further information about this case, because we are in the middle of a legal settlement with Ruth over how she was treated during her stay at our campus. We believe that the courts’ interpretations of the rulings of the World Congress of 2012 will prevail.
Shortly after Ruth left the study, Sally came to us off of an online advertisement, and she claimed to be possessed by many different demons. She would occasionally lapse into a so-called “demonic” state, and exhibit great physical strength. We “asked the demons” what they would like to have, if they could have any psychological or physical pleasure currently available to humans. They asked for thrash metal music to be constantly played while the orgasm button was available for constant pushing.
Once again, we employed a variant on the “Chinese Water Torture” method to see how the lower thought forms would play off of each other when thwarted and then completely indulged. We played hymns and wired the orgasm button to Sally’s brain such that when pushed, she only got about two-thirds of the way to climax.
One day, looking extremely shrivelled and sounding hoarse and hollow, Sally asked for a Bible, and a nun to initiate her into the order of a nunnery. We obliged.
To our amazement, Sally left the nunnery shortly thereafter for a delivery man, promptly married him, and died during childbirth. The infant was saved.
I, Ex-Comm. Fr. Antonio Faustino, have an important announcement to make, and am taking this opportunity as a keynote speaker in front of my esteemed colleagues to give it. The preceding events have had a remarkable impact upon my view of the human psyche. While I am forever ex-communicated from the Catholic Church, I am still very much in possession of the ability to perform exorcisms, and do believe that such measures are necessary to purge so many of our lost souls of their great sicknesses. I am forming a group of Warriors of Light, and we are going to go out into the world seeking all manner of those not right in the head and not right in the soul. We are offering you the opportunity to join us, if you feel that your research as gone down a dead end as well. When so many of our patients seem only capable of seeking marriage, death, SSRIs or some combination thereof, we are facing a crisis like none the world has ever seen before.
Ex-Comm. Fr. Antonio Faustino
5 Ed. Note
We would like to state that the proposed topic from Ex-Comm. Fr. Faustino was: Policing the International Fishing Waters of the Psyche, or the Tragedy of the Psychic Commons, or How Meta-Agents are constructed systematically to punish the lower human forms when they experience too much success.
We probably would have been delighted at Faustino chosen to stay on topic, as the proposed topic promised some new insights and models for improving human behavior. Alas, we fear that his own Fishing Waters must have grown polluted by too many of his own lower human thought forms. We invite future participants to relate how we academics can successfully and artfully create our own unique host of lower human thought forms while attempting to do very much the opposite.

Toward a unified theory of Psycho-Catalytic Meta-Agent thought models
Dr. Faruk Zapakha
Abstract: Is our organization and its members held together by an agreed-upon, finite set of theoretical underpinnings, or are we simply unified because we all have more or less a common goal—to remove pharmaceuticals from the treatment equation because they are unnecessary in eight out of ten cases? While some of our members may find such a question to be simply a mere distraction and provocation rather than a necessary one, it is the Zapakha Group’s firm understanding of where we are and where we are headed that compels us to affirm in quite the negative—if we do not raise this important question now, at this important point in PsyCataMetaAge’s history, we might very well witness the disbandment of it into splinter groups that decidedly pursue radically different agendas. Some of our members, notably Ex-Comm. Fr. Antonio Faustino, believe that sacrificing the patient during the experiment is morally and ethically unacceptable. The World Congress of 2012 has ruled that all citizens who choose to participate in mental health studies have signed away their rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness where such expected freedoms run contrary to the logical outcome of the experiment. However, are we not a body that seeks to take the high road of humanism, opting to reject the decisions of mainstream medicine and political bodies? Perhaps, perhaps not. There are many other examples of serious differences in approach that we at the Zapakha Group affect the inherent paradigm of the PsyCataMetaAge itself. With this presentation, we offer our recommendations toward a model that is unanimously agreed-upon.
Keywords: unified theory, process model, theoretical underpinnings, overview, consensus, unanimous body
About Dr. Faruk Zapakha
When Dr. LeRoy Greentree first laid out the first catalogue of the lower human thought forms in his seminal work, “The Word = Drug: a Non-Metaphorical, Completely Natural Way to Program Humans,” someone asked him, “so, what are some of the higher thought forms?” Dr. Greentree replied, “Anything that you think that doesn’t repeat.” His answer seemed rather flippant to the inquiring academic press reporter, but what Dr. Greentree was trying to stress was that lower human thought forms were not necessarily catalogued because of qualities of being good or bad, but simply ones that originated from the rational, choice-making brain, and ones that originated from the subconscious mind, external environment, and/or were simply loops that the the waking mind had put into motion, but now could not stop.
“The ability to remain erect and walk across a room,” said Dr. LeRoy Greentree, “is a lower human thought form. I don’t believe that any of us would wish to eradicate that one, and place instead the requirement that our conscious minds relearn and think through anew the process of walking each time we had to perform this action.”
However, and Dr. Greentree keenly noted this right away, our bad habits, pathologies, neuroses, depressions, OCDs, etc., were often put into our brains in much the same way—via a childlike process of learning something by way of repetition, until it sticks. Dr. Greentree urged educators in public schools, especially those teaching children in grades Pre-3, to consider the importance of making kids “shift” their learning habits from imitation/repitition to conscious cognation—the way we really should learn past the kindergarten age. For Dr. Greentree, every “childlike” way of learning was simply imitating someone else until it was a habit, and every “adultlike” way of learning was a much more strategy-based, calculated approach that required planning for outcomes and complete conscious cognation. Most educators in these grades told Dr. Greentree that they were lucky to produce a literate child who entered adulthood without a dependence on drugs or alcohol. Dr. Greentree replied to these educators that they should call him when they were tired of just being lucky in their educated methods, and actually wanted to teach young humans something new. Most of them never returned his calls.
This is Bible Truth to most of us here, but we repeat it in our introduction because it would seem that some of the most exulted stars of PsyCataMetaAge are more interested in experimenting with their own wild theoretical models, than utilizing some of Greentree’s basic laws. When we embarked upon our unified theory of Psycho-Catalytic Meta-Agent thought models, we chose to omit the recent work of some of our top thought leaders for one reason: we feel they only play lip service to the original theoretical underpinnings. This might cause some harsh responses from the audience members, but we feel that it is wholly necessary to prevent PsyCataMetaAge from disintegrating. It should be noted that when Cosmologists attempt to build Grand Unified Theories, they do not include Flat-Earth and Heliocentric models, and neither should we.
2 How the mind really works
Reichenstachler’s (2009) initial model of lower human forms orbiting a “sun,” our own consciousness, was a powerful tool indeed. However, the tendency for Reichenstachler to see the mind in nature has proved to be both a benefit and detriment to our understanding of how the lower human thought forms work. It is a benefit because we can see trends in our own psyches working very much in similar fashions in nature, but a detriment when the great generalized models that include ants, amoebas and arteries are reduced to very specific process models. We have a much harder time seeing the direct correlation between our mental processes, and say, a beehive, but we can quickly grasp patterns that are universal as in the chaos theories of earlier generations.
So what exactly is the mind, and how does it really work?
The mind is whatever we need it to be at a given moment, be it a director, actor, process or storehouse. All of these can be termed agents of some form or fashion. However, it should be stressed, that we do not go so far as to claim absolute identity with our minds. Beyond mind, beyond language, beyond waking consciousness, there is the essence of the human individual.
We are agnostic as to what this essence is—be it a soul, or the basic human with inaliable rights as determined by the World Congress.
Appendix A—A (very) brief history of Psycho-Catalytic Meta-Agent thought models
During much of the present age in which we live, a staggering taxonomy of psychological maladies has arisen, in spite of the fact that the genetic, physical and chemical compositions of the human nervous system differ from human to human only by degree. In those cases where such differences are notable, detectable and indisputable, the application of a pathology and the ensuing pharmaceutical treatments makes perfect sense and is considered by the PsychoCataMetaAge thought leaders to be sound medical practice.
However, many so-called pathologies seemed to have arisen more due to social disintegration and new technological interfaces than from any inherent genetic or chemical imbalance in the subjects themselves. In other words, the sanctified high priests of psychopharmacopia were giving their blessings of newly invented “disorders” to keep the members of their tribes pacified, inert, complacent. The doctors of psychological medicine, while likely not intentionally setting out on this path, became as much a part of the problem as the mental illnesses they sought to treat.
There was, of course, a backlash to the growing trend to dispense pharmaceuticals and declare members of society victims of this or that disorder. Naturally, faddish and cultish religions and self-annointed gurus rose up to declare that their treatment methods were the “real cures,” and largely denounced the accepted body of Western medicine practitioners. One notable example were the Scientologists, who fervently believed that all pharmaceuticals were ineffective. Plenty more adapted and shaped Eastern medicine and philosophy to fit their own working worldview models.
It was in this climate that a substantial new science emerged. The PsychoCataMetaAge approach was initially declared to be a “kiddie” version of Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), or perhaps a reinvention of the Zen wheel. Some denounced the basic theoretical tenets of PsychoCataMetaAge as nothing more than crude attempts and recreating Freud, Jung, Lacan, et al. However, the clear difference and distinction between any and all other theoretical models was that PsychoCataMetaAge was primarily pragmatic. Put simply, it worked.
The basic principle of PsychoCataMetaAge is, of course, that words can be as effective as drugs. There are many qualifiers that follow such a bold statement, to be for sure. Words must be structured properly. Words (at least in PsychoCataMetaAge’s current stage), are meant to be only used as drugs when the genetic and physiochemical composition of the subject appear under all tests to be “normal” or within an acceptable range of function. Where brain patterns, genetic makeups, and internal chemistries do not fit this range, traditional and unorthodox pharmaceutical therapies are quite acceptable.
Dr. LeRoy Greentree, emeritus of the University of Yancy, was probably the first to put forth the headwater paper from which all future PsychoCataMetaAge thought was to flow. In it, he described a carefully-controlled, double-blind study in which twenty-five patients diagnosed with moderate to severe depression were administered a traditional SSRI-type drug to treat their depression, and another twenty-five were given a placebo and told to chant a mantra (the now-cliched “I’m being and becoming in a higher sphere”). A final group of twenty-five were simply given placebos. All were told they were receiving radical new depression-treatment therapy. Of the SSRI-treated subjects, three committed suicide within a year, ten stopped receiving their treatments and dropped out of the study, and twelve showed mixed results of progress. Almost all of them reported in extensive followup questions that they felt more “drugged” than “cured.”
The twenty-five who were administered placebo medicine and given a mantra to chant all showed mixed results of progress, but the bell curve was notably higher for this group, and there were no suicides or dropouts, and only two reports of feeling more “drugged” than “cured.” Finally, of the twenty-five who only received the placebo, fifteen dropped out of the study, five reported minor progress, one committed suicide, and the remaining four believed they were receiving a placebo.
While the outcome of the mantra experiment wasn’t hailed by Dr. Greentree as a complete success, he did think that the results were interesting enough to indicate that further research was needed. Quite intuitively, Greentree decided that his mantra could probably be changed to be more effective, most notably by focusing on the differences in language between those suffering from depression and those who were not. He looked for differences in speech cadence, rhythm, repeated words, dropped syllables, etc., and tailored a new mantra that he felt would stimulate the areas of the brain that were not functioning optimally. His new mantra (and most of the subsequent ones that PsychoCataMetaAge researchers were to create), was really sheer nonsense in the conversational sense of the word.
However, and this is where the real breakthrough came, Greentree discovered that he could not only influence his subjects with carefully constructed mantras to be less depressed, he could also prime them to learn difficult or heretonow unattainable subject matters. He studied the language and speech patterns of Wall Street Bankers, fellow doctors like himself, lawyers, quantum physicists, higher mathematicians, movie actors, etc., and developed a small booklet of mantras to test for efficacy.
It was also during this time that Dr. Greentree lost his tenure and was stripped of much of his academic titles when the governing boards of acadmia and psychiatric medicine determined he was participating in “superstition, shamanism, and base witchcraft of a sort.” Many career professors would have been crushed by this disheartening vote of a lack of confidence in his work, but Greentree was too excited by his progress to care. He mortgaged his home, divorced his wife, and invested his entire retirement into founding what has become the most promising new science in the world today.
At this time, there was no real name for what this science was to become. Dr. Greentree, in his landmark, groundbreaking paper, called it “An investigation into using speech-processing facilities to render acceptable levels of psychosocial functioning.” His early students, who would go on to become standard-bearers themselves, debated frequently as to call it something that incorporated “language,” “linguistics,” “speech,” or the like. Dr. Greentree was mostly agnostic about what to call it, but pointed out that what he was doing was not so much linguistic, as preter-linguistic, i.e., he didn’t want language, as it is employed in everyday human negotiation, to be the straitjacket for how mantras are constructed. He was also concerned that the future mantras his students created might be built not from observing differences between the subject group and the target audience (i.e., the audience the subjects were to emulate, then become), but simply devolve into childlike or primal, pre-language chants—thereby turning the subjects into grunting Neanderthals or unproductive hermits.
Greentree also stressed that while speaking like a Wall Street Banker might be impressive, it didn’t make one a Wall Street Banker, or guarantee one’s financial success. Patients whose brains became more receptive to studying finance had to then go on to study finance, or they would really only be able to get jobs as actors playing Wall Street Bankers. With this said, the Greentree Institute naturally received a lot of aspiring actors, once word of his program’s success got out. But Greentree was interested in shaping and molding humans to be better humans through the use of his mantras, not simply to churn out a population of parrots.
He was also alarmed at the rate at which many of the mantra practitioners had become so immersed in the roles they had assumed, that they were really no better off than before—still victims, in a sense of their own thought forms, just victims of new and different ones. So, Dr. Greentree made a bold proclamation that the word mantra, so dated and loaded with ancient meaning, would be abolished except as a means of initially familiarizing newcomers with the process. “Mantras” became “Meta-agent” thought models that were “Catalysts” for “Pyschological” change. “Meta,” because Greentree was adamant that the subjects remain masters of their own destiny, and see the words they chanted as being a kind of glue to bind together old thought patterns in the molding and shaping process. In short, the subject should always be striving to become the gatekeeper of the thought dungeon, not one of the inmates.
One of Dr. Greentree’s first students to match him in pace of inquiry and depth of study was the notable Edvard Hiller, a parapsychologist and hypnotist who had grown disillusioned with his own colleague’s lack of successes at substantially improving humans. One widely disputed term that has come to be regularly accepted among PsyCataMetaAge practitioners is the sometimes much maligned phrase “lower human forms.” Hiller felt that it was classist, prejudiced and impolitic to declare that some subjects were mostly possessed of such entities. Dr. Greentree pointed out that all of us at times, even into maturity exhibit moments of possessing more lower human forms than not. Lower human forms merely imply the modes of speech that are observed, both internally as brain waves and externally as speech patterns, when humans are under the spells of their addictions, obsessions, infatuations, preoccupations, maladies, pathologies, etc. Some present day theorists have even gone so far as to say, perhaps only half-seriously, that one day all of our written work and conference presentations will be seen as lower human forms, merely the geegaws and baubles of the still-evolving humanity in its youth.
There were other phrases and theoretical underpinnings that caused Hiller to part ways with Greentree, and found his own organization to propagate models involving “Homo-Dynamic Socio-Substrata” and the competing conference we know as “HoDSoS 2013.” It is truly beyond the scope of this Appendix to describe each of them in detail, as there are ample literature sources for the determined historian. Other than the “lower human forms” phrase, the most controversial and significant difference in Hiller’s and Greeentree’s theoretical underpinnings is, of course, how sexual identity is described.
 Upon further commentary by our fellowship editors, it was determined that some newcomers, opting to start with this symposium catalogue as their introduction to the entire PsyCataMetaAge body of thought, might prefer and benefit from such an introduction. Please see Appendix A for this.
