I am referring to the work of Thakurdas H. and Thakurdas L. (1979) from which I picked the terms which I believed to be more storytelling for our fate as people. Then, I wrote a short poem with all the terms mixed up.
(go directly to the poem if you have some knowledge of psychology)
Anankastic Personality: essential trait is rigidity, perfectionism and meticulousness
Asylum: ‘place safe from violence or pillage’; now psychiatric hospital.
Confabulation: fabrication to fill memory gaps
Conflict: conflict between the demands of reality and those of unconscious drives and feeling. This can lead to anxiety and other forms of emotional disorders, the cause is not being consciously understood by the subject.
Collective Unconscious: according to Jung, that part of the unconscious mind inherited from the experiences of the human race (syn: racial unconscious)
Idiopathic: pathological condition in which no cause can be discovered. condition with known etiology is described as symptomatic.
Repression: psychological process by which unacceptable impulses or ideas are rendered unconscious. In the individual, the repressed ideas may be translated and expressed as symptoms. In the group cultural factors play dynamic role in determining what is or is not acceptable and in moulding the nature of repression.
Persona: Jung’s personality mask or façade which is presented to the outside world (he takes the latin etymology)
Token economy system: method of controlling the behavior of a group of people in an institution, in which socialized, rational, adaptive behavior is reinforced by tokens which can be exchanged for a variety of privileges.
Trema: german slang for stage fright before the performance begins.
we are idiopathic
due to infobesity
we own a collective unconscious
and this is why we are global
we are xenophobic
cause we are autophobic
we practice confabulation in politics
cause we have no hard disk for history
we experience conflict
comes from ignorance
and ignorance is fed by fear
we are anankastic personalities
cause: ‘roses are red,
violets are blue,
there is always an Asian
better than you’
we hesitate giving asylum
cause peace is still a place
we prefer mood over emotions
because too many pinches
will make us fall
we are personae
cause Pirandello was damned right
we are Othellos in love
cause we think
we can gain trust
every brick in our city
and every brick in our soul
is built out of repression
we def need to tear down these walls
we fear god
cause Nietzsche said
god is dead
and we fear him to be a zombie
our is a token economic system
and nothing needs to be said about it
we experience trema
cause we hope
our show still needs to begin
