phobia [fo’be-(backward e) n. 1. A persistent, illogical fear of a specific thing or situation. 2. Any strong fear or aversion.[<Gk.phobas, fear, flight.].
Let us begin by attempting to explain that this definition [like most definitions] is a valid intellectual definition of the term phobia; but it is only valid to the limitation of the intellect, and does not stand up to a thorough [complete] discussion based on the Reality of Life. It is not valid, in other words, if one takes a psychological or a Spiritual perspective in discussing the term ‘phobia’.
But, the likelihood of being involved in an actual discussion of Psychology [as opposed to the bastardization of “psychology,” which is called today “behavioral psychology”… which is an oxymoron, is quite remote. And, the reason for this is simply that “BS&bp,” or “modern psychology and mental health,” are both based on the Delusional Thinking of B.F. Skinner [BS&bp], which is distinguished by the fact that BS&bp denies both the actual Psychology of Man, and the Reality of Life. That is, the “whole” of Life.
And, this denial of the ‘whole of life’ means a denial of the Esoteric, or invisible dimensions of Man [which number three], and a pure intellectual fixation oh the Delusional notion that Man has no MIND — which is based on what Skinner believed, as found in a quote from him, in a book by Richard I Evans, entitled: B.F. Skinner: The Man and his Ideas. New York: E.P. Dutton & Co. 1968
“A child is influenced and changed as a biological entity by things that happen to him, but the notion that somehow or other the child of our past is still contained within us is a form of animism which serves no useful purpose in explaining present behavior.”
In this quote, Skinner gives us his natural impression of the thinking of the person confined to the Malady of Intellectualism, or use of the brain with little or no access to one’s faculty of Intuition [or put another way], a person lacking access to “C’etc,” which is a symbol standing for the Virtues of Life. This describes a person I refer to as an Intelack type personality.
So, returning to the point of this blog [the term ‘phobia’], the term “illogical” is used in defining phobia. The use of the term illogical indicates that the person writing this definition has no idea what the Psychology of Man means? It also indicates the writer has no concept of the Law of Karma, or that of Reincarnation.
Or, alternatively… the writer calls a natural reaction of a person to something the person KNOWS quite well…[from a Psychological perspective], “a persistent, illogical fear of a specific thing or situation”… because a person’s reaction does not conform to what the writer fails to comprehend, or KNOW ?
I notice this intellectual prejudice [based on ignorance] quite often, in virtually every dictionary [except perhaps for those dictionaries which are written by lay people]!
So, the question is this… Is it illogical for a person to fear Homosexuality, or to fear Islamic terrorists, both of whom are dedicated to doing great harm to mankind? To suggest that a fear of Homosexuality, or a fear of Islamic extremists is a phobia… is, pardon the expression… NUTS.
It is much more likely that a person experiencing fear regarding either Homosexuality or Islamic-trained terrorism holds this fear because of some actual experience of one or the other of these horrors of the Earth Plane. In any case, both the terms Homophobia and Islamophobia are not compatible with the terms “illogical,” “unfounded,” or “irrational”.
To suggest that these rational fears are “illogical” or in some way “phobic,” is to display one’s obvious ignorance of the Reality of these intensely insane situations present in the world today.
