  • When are you guys going to talk about stranger things 2?

  • Would be interesting to analyze this mess as an systemic process.
    The relationship, family, friends, peer groups …
    „Two traumatized“ human beeings meet and the family doesn’t like the dynamic.
    Then the social pressure game starts…again…
    -The only person without compassion seems to be ‚te daughter‘.
    Traumatized or maladaptive for love?
    Would be logical if the „partner“ and the „daughter“ have the same deficits.
    PS Do you think the process you described for empathy creating, is the only way to bring children to love themselves as their neighbor? Alice Miller described this as an error in our society…

  • Stranger things 1 was good.
    I thought about autism in this podcast episode and how much bipolar/borderlines has the same symptoms as autism.
    You never played the game „to the moon“? – some of those game have an good portrait of humans, who doesn’t function as socially sanctioned, but show them without prejudices.
    I like „narcissu“ too but this series is a little more obstruct.
    But most games need more time as does the anime series I recommend as:
    Texhnolyze, Haibane Renmai, Serial Experiments Lain, Neon Genesis Evangelion & The end of evangelion, Shinsekai Yori (From the new world), Revolutionary Girl Utena, Puella Magi Madoka Magica & Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part III: Rebellion, Higurashi When They Cry, Umineko When They Cry, Grisaia no Kajitsu (The Fruit of Grisaia), Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi (Sunday Without God), Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou, Aria the Animation…Mushishi

  • I have absolutely NO idea why this is such a fascinating story. These creepy douche bags are everywhere. Especially on dating sites. The real psycho is the idiot woman for inviting him into her and her children's lives. She needs help desperately. And, during the interview, she's giggling like a little girl talking about what color sweaters looked good on him. A man who practically murdered her own daughter. What is there to laugh about? She is so messed up and desperate for a man's attention, that I'd bet money she's now married a 6th time. I don't care how lucrative her company is, she's the loser in this story.

  • How connected to Debbra was he? ,if he doesnt feel emphathy? he was never fully present in the relationship from the beginning. I think he stayed with her because he was gambling on his future of taking all her money, plain and simple. How could he love her or anyone considering what he was doing. I think one of the basis of psychophathy is having no ability to really connect to anyone. He all ways had his dishonest stuff going on, on the side the whole time. Life to him was a game to play and win, win , win. Pyschopaths cant function thinking about their futures. To them its a day to day thing. Its the nature of this mental illness, they are like animals, ferral.
