Le phénomène tout à fait surprenant de la Synchronicité théorisé au début du XXème siècle par Carl Jung et Wolfgang Pauli (l’un des tous premiers physiciens de la mécanique quantique) a été sujet d’investigation dans une émission entière avec Michel Cazenave, auquel s’est joint le physicien des particules Etienne Klein. Un lien est ainsi à nouveau créé ici entre physique fondamentale et psychologie.

Carl Gustav Jung (entretien avec Michel Cazenave)

La psychologie de Carl Gustav Jung a apporté une immense ouverture dans notre regard sur l’homme et sa constitution, comparée aux structures élaborées par Freud. Michel Cazenave, ardent défenseur et promoteur de cet apport – vital – à notre connaissance sur L’Homme, nous introduit ici à un certain nombre de découvertes et concepts jungiens incontournables, tel que, entre autres, Archétypes, processus de l’Individuation, Anima-Animus. Nous touchons également le sujet des Crises au cours d’une vie, crises sans lesquelles aucune maturation ne pourrait se faire; et ce qui semble, bien sûr, être vrai tout autant pour l’individuel que pour le collectif. Ne nous faisons pas, au niveau global, le dur l’apprentissage aujourd’hui?

Le phénomène tout à fait surprenant de la Synchronicité a été sujet d’investigation dans une émission entière avec Michel Cazenave, auquel s’est joint le physicien des particules Etienne Klein. Une autre heure a été consacrée à “L’expérience intérieure”,  livre dans lequel Michel Cazenave nous présente cet aspect primordial de la vie de Carl Gustav Jung.

Listen to The Bloop

The Bloop is the name given to an ultra-low frequency underwater sound detected by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration several times during the summer of 1997. The source of the sound remains unknown.
The sound, traced to somewhere around 50° S 100° W (South American southwest coast), was detected repeatedly by the Equatorial Pacific Ocean autonomous hydrophone array, which uses U.S. Navy equipment originally designed to detect Soviet submarines. According to the NOAA description, it “rises rapidly in frequency over about one minute and was of sufficient amplitude to be heard on multiple sensors, at a range of over 5,000 km.” According to scientists who have studied the phenomenon it matches the audio profile of a living creature but there is no known animal that could have produced the sound. If it is an animal, it would have to be, reportedly, much larger than even a Blue Whale, the largest known animal on the earth.

What would Aldous Huxley have thought of this, I wonder?

Is nonconformity and freethinking a mental illness? According to the newest addition of the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), it certainly is. The manual identifies a new mental illness called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD. Defined as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed.

The DSM-IV is the manual used by psychiatrists to diagnose mental illnesses and, with each new edition, there are scores of new mental illnesses. Are we becoming sicker? Is it getting harder to be mentally healthy? Authors of the DSM-IV say that it’s because they’re better able to identify these illnesses today. Critics charge that it’s because they have too much time on their hands.

New mental illnesses identified by the DSM-IV include arrogance, narcissism, above-average creativity, cynicism, and antisocial behavior. In the past, these were called “personality traits,” but now they’re diseases.

And there are treatments available.

All of this is a symptom of our over-diagnosing and overmedicating culture. In the last 50 years, the DSM-IV has gone from 130 to 357 mental illnesses. A majority of these illnesses afflict children. Although the manual is an important diagnostic tool for the psychiatric industry, it has also been responsible for social changes. The rise in ADD, bipolar disorder, and depression in children has been largely because of the manual’s identifying certain behaviors as symptoms. A Washington Post article observed that, if Mozart were born today, he would be diagnosed with ADD and “medicated into barren normality.”

According to the DSM-IV, the diagnosis guidelines for identifying oppositional defiant disorder are for children, but adults can just as easily suffer from the disease. This should give any freethinking American reason for worry.

The Soviet Union used new “mental illnesses” for political repression. People who didn’t accept the beliefs of the Communist Party developed a new type of schizophrenia. They suffered from the delusion of believing communism was wrong. They were isolated, forcefully medicated, and put through repressive “therapy” to bring them back to sanity.

When the last edition of the DSM-IV was published, identifying the symptoms of various mental illnesses in children, there was a jump in the diagnosis and medication of children. Some states have laws that allow protective agencies to forcibly medicate, and even make it a punishable crime to withhold medication. This paints a chilling picture for those of us who are nonconformists.

Although the authors of the manual claim no ulterior motives but simply better diagnostic practices, the labeling of freethinking and nonconformity as mental illnesses has a lot of potential for abuse. It can easily become a weapon in the arsenal of a repressive state.
