Guess who! No? My name is Emile Michel Hobo. If you haven’t heard of me, it’s about time you do. I’m a screenwriter and creative director with a broad interest in anything that moves people.
I was born to a high school dropout that left home underage and a father that tried to teach me to break the law from an early age on in The Hague, The Netherlands - July 5th, 1980. I’ve also lived in Rosmalen and currently reside in Enschede, where I obtained my engineering degree (MSc++) in Computer Science at the University of Twente.
The Netherlands turn out to be an unruly country with one “recognized” condoning policy. That means that selling drugs that aren’t allowed isn’t prosecuted, though illegal.
Unfortunately, per 2018 the entire country has an 85% condoning policy, meaning that the police and prosecution only register 15% of all charges pressed, mostly focusing on minor violations, rather than actual crime. (The Captain of the National Police lied to me on LinkedIn, that it was 24% in 2017, not 20%, but according to the CBS it was 20% in 2017.)
Practically, they let more than 85% of all murderers, rapists, and child molesters run free. The people that do get arrested typically stand a fifty-fifty chance of being convicted, with the prosecution and the judges noting that a phonecall to a person doesn’t indicate there’s a high likelihood of you not being there, but actually saying it’s evidence you were there.
If you find yourself locked inside a mental hospital, check under the Sophism links for scientific documents (Grant Lester) on how to prove you don’t have delusions or at least how they should handle your case in court. Be sure to request your full medical file and a copy of the DSM-criteria. Also ask for your verdict in writing: as it turns out, I was actually found innocent and sane, yet institutionalized.
Are you the victim of any (forced) drug abuse, like for instance anti-psychotics, or general minor brain damage? Consider supplements. You do need to be careful. I tried mucuna pruriens (for levodopa) and it does help you concentrate, but it’s already in a later state of the process of your brainfunction. When you take it for longer periods of time, it actually can make sure that the braincells that make levodopa diminish in numbers further.
Instead you might want to look at for instance l-tyrosine, which seems to stimulate the production of these brain cells. If you take it in conjunction with mucuna pruriens, you need to have a two hours time interval between taking them because they inhibit each other.
Consult your physician for proper dosages. My personal experience is that with brain damage, you don’t become psychotic when taking 15 grams of mucuna pruriens daily, simply because your brain can’t handle the dopamine production to the extent that you’ll actually become psychotic.
Longterm use as said can diminish brainfunction. You need to regrow your brain first: “anti-psychotics” actually shrink your prefrontal cortex, increasing stress levels and psychosis (if you were psychotic) due to too low dopamine production levels.
I should also point out that the fact that people that have been rightfully diagnosed with the proper symptomology of schizophrenia, which should really be called continuous external stress delusions disorder (CESDD) or continuous external stress hallucinations disorder (CESHD), based on the known effects of “anti-psychotics,” shouldn’t get any.
The fact that they have to take “anti-psychotics” beyond the point that they develop Parkinsonian symptoms disproves the hyper-dopamine hypothesis. The only way you can get Parkinsonian symptoms is through low dopamine levels. This means that when you’re dealing with CESDD or CESHD, rather than an organic psychosis or drug psychosis, you’re not dealing with hyper-dopamine.
The use of dopamine agonists actually releaves stress and helps them get better as well. Stress leads to hypo-dopamine, not hyper-dopamine.
For further support, try mental training. A good course is the “Gold Medal Mental Workout” by Dariusz Nowicki, that you need to adapt slightly to accomodate your purpose. I’ve adapted lesson five to accomodate brain damage recovery, translated to Dutch, but it contains a learned trigger that you need Nowicki’s course for. Read the instructions first every time you wish to use it, than listen as you meditate.
