(yes, it’s a word!)
Mindfuck: a disturbing, confusing experience caused by deliberate psychological manipulation.
The psychology of evil is ever-present.
It starts with conforming to a small idea that infests the entire system:
just like a virus,
we catch it from others!
Evil, as defined by Philip George Zimbardo, an American psychologist and a professor at Stanford University: “Evil: Intentionally behaving, or causing others to act, in ways that demean, dehumanise, harm, destroy, or kill innocent people.”
German philosopher and political theorist Hannah Arendt, who witnessed parts of Eichmann’s trial in Jerusalem, argued that Eichmann was a plain bureaucrat, seeing himself as “a law-abiding citizen” who “did his duty” and “obeyed orders.” She called this, “the banality of evil.”
At Yale, psychologist Stanley Milgram tested whether ordinary people who were ordered to do evil things by a figure in authority would do them.
The Soloman Asch conformity experiments were a series of psychological experiments conducted during the 1950s: Asch found that people were willing to ignore reality and give an incorrect answer in order to conform to the rest of the group.
We do not free our mind by becoming ‘spiritual’:
that’s just one more mindfuck.
We free our mind from polished distortions
by clearing our mind through meditation.
