RELEASING A PRISONER: A TALE OF TWO ATTEMPTS
There is a prisoner you would like to contact who is in a large penitentiary. You don’t know in which cell the prisoner is in. You study the blueprints of the prison. You carefully plan your assault. Up over the outer wall, then the inner wall with the barbed wire along the top, and across the main recreational area, avoiding the guard towers. Eventually you encounter guards along the way who are obviously hostile to your plan and either they neutralise you or you neutralise them. Assuming you win, you now have to disable the electronics that operate the series the automatic closing doors. You do that. You are now in the area where the prison cells are. There are several hundred and you don’t know which cell your prisoner is in. After a lot of searching you eventually manage to find his cell. But you can’t get in. You have to either hack through the bars or pick the lock to gain entry. You get in but you have another problem; it is risky because the
prisoner is known to be violent. As you enter the prisoner beats you up leaving you bruised and bleeding
If the prisoner represents a dissociative trauma memory in which you endured excruciating pain, then the cell represents the neutral circuits that shield this memory. The corridors, the electronic doors, the protective walls and the whole penitentiary represent your brain. The guards represent alters that have keys to the memories. You must get through all these barriers before you can get to the cell.
The scenario above is the secular world’s approach to getting in touch with dissociative memories. You need to use drugs, hypnosis or EMDR (controll
ed rapid eye movement and/or cross lateral tapping) to get over the walls and into the compound. When you encounter alters (guards) that are hostile, you have to convince them to let you gain access to the cells (neutral barriers) where the memory is held captive. It takes a lot of time. Often the guards are stubborn and they triumph. End of story. Assuming you convince the guard, there are so many cells with so many memories, it is hit and miss whether you get the memory you are looking for. Reluctantly, you take whatever memory you can get. After many attempts you eventually get to the cell with the memory you are looking for but when you enter and relive the memory, the trauma is so intense that it overwhelms you, leaving you emotionally and physically devastated.
This method focusses on the need to understand the brain’s structure, the hemispheric interchange of information, where memories are stored, the neutral pathways and barriers involved in the dissociative process. EEGs, PET scans, alpha, beta, delta, gamma wavelength measurement is where the research is focussed. The secular world is an expert on prison structure. This is a BOTTOM UP approach to resolving dissociation.
How does Anazao do it?
We use a TOP DOWN approach. No need to know anything about prisons and how they are structured.
We simply talk to the Prison Superintendent (Jesus) who knows every prisoner in every cell. We make a request to engage with a particular prisoner. The superintendent tells the guards in that sector to open up the cell. The prisoner is removed. If he is violent, he is appropriately shackled so that interaction with him is safe. Done.
All over. Usually in less than an hour. No retraumatizing of the client. No need for a safe place. No drugs. No hypnosis. No random access via bio-mechanical manipulation.
Two world views clash profoundly and there is absolutely no comparison.
