Apophenia and the epiphany: can you spot the difference?

I briefly touched on the difference between schizophrenic delusions and delusions not yet specified, which is how crisis PR agents and agencies, disreputable media pundits, police, intelligence,and psychologists on the state teat manipulate the entire dialectic of online gang stalking through complicity with “perception management,” a well known propaganda technique.

UPDATE JANUARY, 07,2019
The Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (ATAP)officially linked gang stalking to mass shootings and domestic violence one and a half years AFTER I began to write this blog.

Note these stories here, here, and here, where I document OGS in Los Angeles, Hollywood, and Las Vegas, and indict the Million Man Army of Paul Blarts.

Then, take a look at a recent security guard involved murder of a gay black man in Hollywood, CA, where the cowardly guard Donald Vincent Ciota shot a man in the back.

Here below is one source of opinion about the difference between the two related ‘phenomena’ of the epiphany, which is an important awakening of some kind, versus the apophanie, which is an “awareness false flag.” The reader will take speecial note that psychologists and psychology still use references from the 1950’s, which was the height of the MKULTRA era of bad science and human exprimentation meeting MIC budgets, and the associated Bernaysian crisis PR industry after that. Without irony again, we must examine the religious tribal narrative, and its attendants in psychology.

Or, how one persons/tribes/religious sect’s apophanie is another persons/tribes/religions sects epiphany. [ Special note to Islamic readers: if this is the first time you have encountered the horror of Jewish-christian mind control, then have a look at Radio Islam’s take on it here.]

This is the nature of the Jewish cultural narrative and its attendant perversity of sliding scales of morality, competing with the christian cultures false morality and rigidity imposed upon the weak and the accessible, as well as the cultural co-option of Jewish history and mythology, and then, the wider reach and appeal of christianity, which is NOT based in nepotism, racism, or tribalism. Regardless, they work together to replicate this form of culture.

Chaos and Order-from apophanie to epiphany, and back again

Then, in the piece below, by I ask the reader to take special note that Ms. Waldman has invoked “chaos”as well as “order,” directly, and also that the number 13 represents “chaos” in some numerological interpretations, and also that she has pointed the reader to “Ramsey Theory,” which is ” is a branch of mathematics that studies the conditions under which order must appear.”

It’s All Connected

A German scientist named Klaus Conrad coined apophanie (from the Greek apo, away, and phaenein, to show) in 1958. He was describing the acute stage of schizophrenia, during which unrelated details seem saturated in connections and meaning. Unlike an epiphany—a true intuition of the world’s interconnectedness—an apophany is a false realization. Swiss psychologist Peter Brugger introduced the term into English when he penned a chapter in a 2001 book on hauntings and poltergeists. Apophenia, he said, was a weakness of human cognition: the “pervasive tendency … to see order in random configurations,” an “unmotivated seeing of connections,” the experience of “delusion as revelation.” On the phone he unveiled his favorite formulation yet: “the tendency to be overwhelmed by meaningful coincidences.”

In statistics, a problem akin to apophenia is a Type I error, or false positive. It means believing something is real when it isn’t, based on a misleading pattern in the data. The equal and opposite misstep, a Type II error, involves attributing a true relationship to chance. Defaulting to Type I thinking may have once conferred a survival advantage: Assume every rustle in the grass is a tiger, and you’ll last a lot longer than the carefree naïf who chalks each disturbance up to the wind. So, the theory goes, human brains evolved into “belief engines” and “pattern-recognition machines,” keen to organize jumbled sensory inputs into meaningful data. We are also expert detectors of conspiracies in random events, whispers in radio static, and the Virgin Mary in grilled cheese. Sometimes these false positives create an orderly perceptual continuum that helps us think. They aren’t strictly necessary, but they are at least usually benign. When I see a scowling man in the moon, or you see clouds that remind you of fluffy lambs, our brains are making the world a more diverse and beautiful place. Plus, every now and then, chaos offers up glimmers of order.

Yet apophenia can also lure us into false and damaging convictions.

Now, here below is a case study between the difference between the two subjects-and notice that in order for a person labeled “mentally ill” and for that person so-labelled to be vindicated, in western society, there is always a “narrator” or an “intermediator” or a “man-in-the-middle” that cats as the “gatekeeper” of what is “sane” or “insane” and then, that mediator is frequently a member of one f our many cults, sects, and other orders.

So, here below is a series of photographs that I took a few days ago, as I was followed around by some unknown person who was photographing me (see if this seems familiar to you). Then, note the many different ways I have “filtered” these photos, in order to demonstrate a “viewpoint” as well a to manipulate color, which in turn, manipulates emotion and perception.

See what you think- and keep in mind that I was “shooting” these photo’s of this unknown person over my shoulder as I walked, just off of Sunset Blvd., in Hollywood, CA:

So, I ask the reader to look at these photos above, and ask these questions:

  1. what is apophenia?
  2. which filter shows “reality”?
  3. which image provokes or invokes a profound response, or an ambiguos response in the reader? does a person following you provoke any ther resonses? Which responses might those be?
  4. how many “layers of schizophrenic narrative” would be entirely missed by a psychologist, a media pundit, or a lay person on a jury, without the advantage of photography as a form of evidence?
  5.  does filtering an image change the viewers perception of the image, and then, the incident captured on film? Does the media filter about OGS serve a similar purpose?
  6. does the viewers emotion change when incidents like this “occur”? How about their perceptions? Would the addition of proof of gang stalking change the way that an individual then perceives their individual situation in contrast to the ‘social compact?’ Woud it impact a psychological assessment (psychological assessments do not factor in photographic evidence)?
  7.  is there an epiphany that challenges the apopheny? Would there be-could there be- an epiphany, if the individual experience was filtered through societies gate keepers, without the aid of “proof of gang stalking?”

I will let the reader decide. Answer the questions above, through any filter that YOU choose. But for me, actual proof of the claim of being “followed around and photographed” requires the proof.

Seeing any patterns yet? Try not to let the patterns drive you crazy-some say that an obsession with patterns can indicate mental illness.

Here- have a look at some of the complaints that psychology relegates to the category of “likely delusional”-and keep in mind that psychology generally avoids deep contact with the “schizophrenic narrative” as a way to stigmatize, enforce, and reinforce stigma, such as the classic case of Martha Mitchel effect and  “mis-diagnoses,” aka, they will label you, hurt you, stigmatize you and gas light your complaints if they have power. And only proof will dispute their claims and invalidate the psychological pseudo science.

But due to the duration of many complaints of OGS, ranging from days too years to decades, certainly being followed around for years takes a mental toll, and as such, qualifies as “no touch torture” in every sense, starting with gross privacy invasions, and more (certainly data basing our photographs is bad enough to qualify, much less wondering what “they” are doing with them. I once had a photo of me at a peace march in a mid-western American city crop up on a website hosted in Toronto, Canada, with my body photoshopped into a rally in Toronto, which I had never attended.)

But it is important to note that psychology is ill equipped-and in fact, weaponized against-proper care, or interpretation of the experience of targeted individuals of organized gang stalking for many reasons, not least of which is that in systems governance and its curiously convenient ploy of labeling critical thinkers, non-conformists, individualists and others as “mentally ill”, as well as it’s associated conformity operations, it is the individual who is the target of communitarian policing and gatekeeping schemes-and indeed, individuality is itself under attack.

Related Reading: I use the number 13 frequently in my discussions of OGS, because I have found correlations between it, and it’s use in the OGS dialectic as both a sign and a signifier. Examples of this correlation can be found by using my “search” feature.

Because those who practice OGS seek to cause chaos for some, at the expense of others, I document this so that future readers will understand this one number, and weed out the rest of the endless numerological cr^p that otherwise can occupy your time.

Lastly, because I reject the Jewish-christian social confabulation/ “world order”, I could care less if they, or their social order all just fell off the planet. Every single one of them.
