Two out four sub-forums are the Primal Cafe and Primal Therapy, so this forum hasn't stopped being inclusive. How many Janovians have posted new topics? A couple of announcements about primal books is all I could find. There used to be contributors who discussed broader issues related to society's b...

Nice logo. Will you be changing the forum text too? :wink: At the top of each page the link still says "Primal Theory & Practice Forum Index". Only the banner image has changed.

I forgot to sign-in when I posted that message yesterday. I know you didn't mean the computer software analogy to imply DNA - I just wanted to point out it would be an equally good analogy for unfeeling theories of psychology. That Alice Miller article you linked to doesn't support what you said. Sh...

If you're looking for more techniques to add to RST and the others you've tried, does that mean they weren't completely satisfactory?

In The Matrix, people who take The Red Pill see the true situation - and it ain't pretty. The movie is fiction of course - because an advanced intelligence wouldn't create such a hugely wasteful system (war, genocide, etc). It really does look to me as if something has gone very badly wrong in the e...

Sure, trying to change the world can be a symbolic struggle. But it can also be the only way to get to the root of problems that have negative repercussions throughout society. The pharmaceutical industry would like Robo-Consumers to believe that depression is caused by hypothetical chemical imbalan...

Did Janov actually say trying to change the world is just another struggle? I remember he said in "The primal Revolution" that campaigning against billboards was missing the big picture, but didn't he also say that "real" people would create a different world? Are there enough of us yet? I saw a quo...

I have similar concerns.... both the pharmacutical industry and the education system seem to want to persuade citizens that if they can't adapt to increasing stress levels in our 'human zoo' there's something wrong with them. If we grew up with a different set of social values there'd be less primal...

Satan did well, didn't he? Some humanoids are so morally and ethically degenerate all they're fit for is to take employment in pharmaceutical company marketing departments. :wink: Or looking at it from an evolutionary point of view.... What went wrong to lead to such a high proportion of humans taki...
