Consciousness, art, and psychiatry

With the NSA scandals, many more people have read and heard the term “metadata.” It means “data about data.”

Well, there is also “metalife.” It means “life about life.”

Which means Art.

Art is a way of reaching life on another level.

When the first cave painter scratched an animal on a stone wall, he was undertaking a unique action. He was expressing his own consciousness beyond living his life.

He was inventing beyond his experience.

Suddenly, his experience had another use. It could be gathered up and transformed into painting, creation.

The first artist was the first alchemist.

So it is with all art. You can transmute your own past, your own experience, your own knowledge, your own emotions into works of imagination.

Art is a spiritual path.

From its dynamic perspective, everything that has ever happened to you can take on absolutely new meaning.

This also happens to be the goal of all therapies.

But with art, the goal is fulfilled.

It is no exaggeration to say that the artist can reinvent his past.

Civilizations rise and fall, come and go, and their fate is decided by untold millions of people who refrain from taking the path of the artist.

Ordinary life as we know it doesn’t resolve into a grand solution. It never has. Through alchemical persuasion, however, it can. And that alchemy is art.


The chain of cause and effect, threading from past into present, breaks. Instead, imagination/consciousness invents new realities and new futures, utilizing the energy of past events.

But this energy is no longer connected to those events. It’s brand new, it’s fuel for the fire.

As soon as imagination/invention/creation becomes the leading prow of action for an individual, the energy conversion and liberation begins.

Many, many artists don’t realize the power they have in their hands. They persist in seeing themselves as “entitled to be crazy” in their lives, and this undercuts their own consciousness.

Many artists are so obsessed with commercial success and fame that they’d dance at the end of a leash like a dog if they thought it would bring them recognition. This, needless to say, is debilitating.

So-called spiritual traditions tend to have a habit of depicting states of consciousness and enlightenment. They’re intent on describing the Reality behind reality.

Art makes no such claims. On its path, the artist invents many, many realities, and in doing so, he moves beyond all such descriptions.

For a culture to realize all these things, something quite different from propaganda and indoctrination would have to take place. In the meantime, metalife is an individual proposition.

It always has been.

Exit From the Matrix

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

In this society, psychiatrists are the primary definers of mental states. Their efforts are accepted as official science.

The Psychiatric Political State is based on myths and fairy tales about distinct and separate disorders and “good treatment.”

One of the main psychiatric mantras gaining force? “Everyone at some time in their lives will experience a mental disorder.”

But an open secret has been slowly bleeding out into public consciousness for the past ten years.


And along with that:

ALL SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDERS ARE CONCOCTED, NAMED, LABELED, DESCRIBED, AND CATEGORIZED by a committee of psychiatrists, from menus of human behaviors.

Their findings are published in periodically updated editions of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), printed by the American Psychiatric Association.

For years, even psychiatrists have been blowing the whistle on this hazy crazy process of “research.”

Of course, pharmaceutical companies, who manufacture highly toxic drugs to treat every one of these “disorders,” are leading the charge to invent more and more mental-health categories, so they can sell more drugs and make more money.

But we have a mind-boggling twist. Under the radar, one of the great psychiatric stars, who has been out in front inventing mental disorders, went public. He blew the whistle on himself and his colleagues. And for 3 years, almost no one noticed.

His name is Dr. Allen Frances (twitter), and he made VERY interesting statements to Gary Greenberg, author of a Wired article: “Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness.” (Dec.27, 2010).

Major media never picked up on the interview in any serious way. It never became a scandal.

Dr. Allen Frances is the man who, in 1994, headed up the project to write the (then) latest edition of the psychiatric bible, the DSM-IV. This tome defines and labels and describes every official mental disorder. The DSM-IV eventually listed 297 of them.

In an April 19, 1994, New York Times piece, “Scientist At Work,” Daniel Goleman called Frances “Perhaps the most powerful psychiatrist in America at the moment…”

Well, sure. If you’re sculpting the entire canon of diagnosable mental disorders for your colleagues, for insurers, for the government, for Pharma (who will sell the drugs matched up to the 297 DSM-IV diagnoses), you’re right up there in the pantheon.

Long after the DSM-IV had been put into print, Dr. Frances talked to Wired’s Greenberg and said the following:

There is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bullshit. I mean, you just can’t define it.”


That’s on the order of the designer of the Hindenburg, looking at the burned rubble on the ground, remarking, “Well, I knew there would be a problem.”

After a suitable pause, Dr. Frances remarked to Greenberg, “These concepts [of distinct mental disorders] are virtually impossible to define precisely with bright lines at the borders.”

Frances might have been referring to the fact that his baby, the DSM-IV, had rearranged earlier definitions of ADHD and Bipolar to permit many more diagnoses, leading to a vast acceleration of drug-dosing with highly powerful and toxic compounds.

Finally, at the end of the Wired interview, Frances flew off into a bizarre fantasy:

Diagnosis [as spelled out in the DSM-IV] is part of the magic…you know those medieval maps? In the places where they didn’t know what was going on, they wrote ‘Dragons live here’…we have a dragon’s world here. But you wouldn’t want to be without the map.”

Translation: Patients need hope for the healing of their troubles; so even if we psychiatrists are shooting blanks and pretending to know one kind of mental disorder from another, even if we’re inventing these mental-disorder definitions based on no biological or chemical diagnostic tests—it’s a good thing, because patients will then believe and have hope; they’ll believe it because psychiatrists place a name on their problems…

Needless to say, this has nothing to do with science.

If I were an editor at one of the big national newspapers, and one of my reporters walked in and told me, “The most powerful psychiatrist in America just said the DSM is sheer b.s.,” I think I’d make room on the front page.

If the reporter then added, “This shrink was in charge of creating the DSM-IV,” I’d clear room above the fold.

If the reporter went on to explain that the whole profession of psychiatry would collapse overnight if the DSM was discredited, I’d call for a special section of the paper to be printed.

I’d tell the reporter to get ready to pound on this story day after day for months. I’d tell him to track down all the implications of Dr. Frances’ statements.

I’d open a bottle of champagne to toast the soon-to-be-soaring sales of my newspaper.

And then, of course, the next day I’d be fired.

Because there are powerful multi-billion-dollar interests at stake, and those people don’t like their deepest secrets exposed in the press.

And as I walked out of my job, I’d see a bevy of blank-eyed pharmaceutical executives marching into the office of the paper’s publisher, ready to read the riot act to him.

Dr. Frances’ work on the DSM-IV allowed for MORE toxic drugs to be prescribed, because the definition of Bipolar was expanded to include more people.

Adverse effects of Valproate (given for a Bipolar diagnosis) include:

acute, life-threatening, and even fatal liver toxicity;

life-threatening inflammation of the pancreas;

brain damage.

Adverse effects of Lithium (also given for a Bipolar diagnosis) include:

intercranial pressure leading to blindness;

peripheral circulatory collapse;

stupor and coma.

Adverse effects of Risperdal (given for “Bipolar” and “irritability stemming from autism”) include:

serious impairment of cognitive function;


restless muscles in neck or face, tremors (may be indicative of motor brain damage).

Dr. Frances’ label-juggling act also permitted the definition of ADHD to expand, thereby opening the door for greater and greater use of toxic Ritalin (and other similar compounds) as the treatment of choice.

So what about Ritalin?

In 1986, The International Journal of the Addictions published a most important literature review by Richard Scarnati. It was called “An Outline of Hazardous Side Effects of Ritalin (Methylphenidate)” [v.21(7), pp. 837-841].

Scarnati listed a large number of adverse affects of Ritalin and cited published journal articles which reported each of these symptoms.

For every one of the following (selected and quoted verbatim) Ritalin effects, there is at least one confirming source in the medical literature:

* Paranoid delusions
* Paranoid psychosis
* Hypomanic and manic symptoms, amphetamine-like psychosis
* Activation of psychotic symptoms
* Toxic psychosis
* Visual hallucinations
* Auditory hallucinations
* Can surpass LSD in producing bizarre experiences
* Effects pathological thought processes
* Extreme withdrawal
* Terrified affect
* Started screaming
* Aggressiveness
* Insomnia
* Since Ritalin is considered an amphetamine-type drug, expect amphetamine-like effects
* Psychic dependence
* High-abuse potential DEA Schedule II Drug
* Decreased REM sleep
* When used with antidepressants one may see dangerous reactions including hypertension, seizures and hypothermia
* Convulsions
* Brain damage may be seen with amphetamine abuse.

A recent survey revealed that a high percentage of children diagnosed with bipolar had first received a diagnosis of ADHD. This is informative, because Ritalin and other speed-type drugs are given to kids who are slapped with the ADHD label. Speed, sooner or later, produces a crash. This is easy to call “clinical depression.”

Then comes Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft. These drugs can produce temporary highs, followed by more crashes. The psychiatrist notices the up and down pattern—and then produces a new diagnosis of Bipolar (manic-depression) and prescribes other drugs, including Valproate and Lithium.

In the US alone, there are at least 300,000 cases of motor brain damage incurred by people who have been prescribed so-called anti-psychotic drugs (aka “major tranquilizers”). Risperdal (mentioned above as a drug given to people diagnosed with Bipolar) is one of those major tranquilizers. (source: Toxic Psychiatry, Dr. Peter Breggin, St. Martin’s Press, 1991)

This psychiatric drug plague is accelerating across the land.

Where are the mainstream reporters and editors and newspapers and TV anchors who should be breaking this story and mercilessly hammering on it week after week? They are in harness.

And Dr. Frances is somehow let off the hook. He’s admitted in print that the whole basis of his profession is throwing darts at labels on a wall, and implies the “effort” is rather heroic—when, in fact, the effort leads to more and more poisonous drugs being dispensed to adults and children, to say nothing of the effect of being diagnosed with “a mental disorder.”

I’m not talking about “the mental-disease stigma,” the removal of which is one of Hillary Clinton’s missions in life. No, I’m talking about MOVING A HUMAN INTO THE SYSTEM, the psychiatric apparatus, where the essence of the game is trapping that person to harvest his money, his time, his energy, and of course his health—as one new diagnosis follows on another, and one new toxic treatment after another is undertaken, from cradle to grave.

The result is a severely debilitated human being (if he survives), whose major claim to fame is his list of diseases and disorders.

Thank you, Dr. Frances.

The Matrix Revealed

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, click here.)

Here is a smoking-gun statement made by another prominent psychiatrist, on an episode of PBS’ Frontline series. The episode was: “Does ADHD Exist?”

PBS FRONTLINE INTERVIEWER: Skeptics say that there’s no biological marker—that it [ADHD] is the one condition out there where there is no blood test, and that no one knows what causes it.

BARKLEY (Dr. Russell Barkley, clinical professor of psychiatry and pediatrics at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, prevously professor of psychiatry and neurology at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center): That’s tremendously naïve, and it shows a great deal of illiteracy about science and about the mental health professions. A disorder doesn’t have to have a blood test to be valid. If that were the case, all mental disorders would be invalid…There is no lab test for any mental disorder right now in our science. That doesn’t make them invalid. [emphasis added]

Without intending to, Dr. Barkley blows the whistle on his own profession.

So let’s take Dr. Barkley to school. Medical science, and disease-research in particular, rests on the notion that you can make a diagnosis backed up by lab tests. If you can’t produce lab tests, you’re spinning fantasies.

These fantasies might be hopeful, they might be “educated guesses,” they might be launched from traditional centers of learning, they might be backed up by billions of dollars of grant money…but they’re still fantasies.

If I said the moon was made of green cheese, even if I were a Harvard professor, sooner or later someone would ask me to produce a sample of moon rock to be tested for “cheese qualities.” I might begin to feel nervous, I might want to tap dance around the issue, but I would have to submit the rock to a lab.

Dr. Barkley employs a corrupted version of logical analysis in his statement to the PBS Frontline interviewer. Barkley is essentially saying, “There is no lab test for any mental disorder. But if a test were the standard of proof, we wouldn’t have science at all, and that would mean our whole profession rests on nothing—and that is absurd, so therefore a test doesn’t matter.”

That logic is no logic at all. Barkley is proving the case against himself. He just doesn’t want to admit it.

Close to 50 years ago, psychiatry was dying out as a profession. Fewer and fewer people wanted to see a psychiatrist for help, for talk therapy. All sorts of new therapies were popping up. The competition was leaving medical psychiatry in the dust.

As Dr. Peter Breggin describes it in his landmark book, Toxic Psychiatry, a deal was struck. Drug companies would bankroll psychiatry and rescue it. These companies would pour money into professional conferences, journals, research. In return, they wanted “science” that would promote mental disease as a biological/chemical fact, a gateway into the drugs. Everyone would win—except the patient.

So the studies were rolled out, and the list of mental disorders expanded. The FDA was in on the deal as well, as evidenced by their drug “safety” approvals, in the face of the obvious damage these drugs were doing.

So this is how we arrived at where we are. This was the plan, and it worked.

Under the cover story, it was all fraud all the time. Without much of a stretch, you could say psychiatry has been the most widespread profiling operation in the history of the human race. Its goal has been to bring humans everywhere into its system. It hardly matters which label a person is painted with, as long as it adds up to a diagnosis and a prescription of drugs.

Do people suffer, do they have problems, do they experience anguish and pain, do they make choices that sabotage their own interests, do they fall victim to external circumstances, do they long for relief? Of course.

But this has nothing to do with fraudulent psychiatric diagnoses.

It has to do with nutritional deficits, toxic drugs, toxic food and environmental chemicals, abuse, isolation, intimidation, and a whole host of other potential factors.

Psychiatry is trying to monopolize mental states and the understanding of the mind. It has no science, and it has no authentic conscience. It’s a pseudo-medical version of Orwellian politics, flying under the banner of a false professionalism.

    dear jon,
    psychiatry is the step child of modern cut burn and poison medicine.
    all that you say about psych goes double for the whole rotten system of triage medicine.
    the practice of medicine should be limited to practicing on other doctors,politicians, banksters and lywyers, police and all those who have titles of nobility(reverend, professor and judge).
    when they show that they know what they are doing…maybe then we will let them come out of the cage.
    everything in america/world is upside down starting with how they show us the global map.
    therefore i start with that supposition. if we can read the spin…we can respond accordingly and win.

    You making fun of people like me, this stuff is serious Jon…these disorders are life threatening…I mean there has to be a reason/s why I am this fracked up.
    Some of my disorders for this year:

    Bwahaha….we don’t need no stinking SSRI’s.
    Good food, water and execise. One medication for everything…cannabis…organically grown cannabis.

      Science at work, Michael, the “science” you criticized in another thread hereabouts as “empiricism”. Here Jon R. documents pseudo-science, almost in pure (lack of) form or method. JR wrote “Needless to say, this has nothing to do with science.” But then, you can do without science, too, right? I submit that Mary Baker Eddy had a greater grasp of true Science than you do, though she did not reveal (to my knowledge) methods specific to her practice (Christian Science, an oxymoron for all those who know neither apostolic Christianity or valid Science). So did Ernest Holmes (The Science of Mind). When you arrive at Yogi Bhajan’s The Mind, Michael, you’ll see Science in action, though too much action for these old bones! GOD bless and keep your enquiring mind active and alert and open.

      • Michael says:

        Aw shucks, did I touch a nerve Doc…terrible when we get to a certain age and realize that everything we have learned the very occupation we hold in life is wrong.
        I believe in neither a Christian God or modern science, they both have become restrictive, dogmatic and political ideals rather than a search for truth.
        Science like Art must be a living thing…in flux.
        I see one of your areas of interest and occupation is Pharmacology and Toxicology.
        You are a Statistician, in actual fact are you not?…
        I see you have written on Pharmacology, I have taken an interest, and would like to read your publications.

          Dear fellow human and precious soul, Michael — aren’t we all? — you can walk down the path of discourse you’ve chosen at your own peril. Have you even read anything I have written ever? Much is available on the web. If not, no matter.

          No, sir. You “touch” no nerve with me. After letting go, long ago in 1976, of killing animals for the sake of knowledge, I have never considered the work I do wrong. Au contraire, as my French-Canadian wife would declare! (Twenty-five years and counting, this capital-M marriage! Third time lucky…)

          I shall tell you a truism passed on by a true Teacher: Anything beLIEved is a lie. Whether in “science” or “art” or any other domain of your mind. Belief does not make It so, nor does belief unmake Reality!

          I am not a “Statistician” per se, though once a Ph.D. (UC Berkeley, Statistics) blessed me as an “applied statistician”. I have applied statistical methods with a vengeance throughout a successful career. I also apply Pharmacology and Toxicology to practical real-world issues and individual problems in litigation (civil, criminal). Want to communicate with me directly? See!

            I sense you feel threatened, don’t be Alan, I do not mean to cause that. You mistake arrogance as a direct threat.

            Are you familiar with Ockham’s razor?

            Let me play devil advocate, does it not come down to that dam cat in a sealed box. Belief is all you really have… belief has undone the human and made him into blind arrogant god. We have been here before, believe me. We are the inheritors of a dystopian nightmare, of which there seems to be no return, it’s a long road out of Eden, unless…an Extinction Level Event. Or at very least a paradigm shift into an even deeper, deeper belief.
            Belief makes important men important; rock stars, painters and Caesars, and even statisticians.
            Imagination has made this Universe, Imagination is belief.
            A little quote for you Alan, you seem like a fine fellow, it’s based on belief….and its from one yours.

    Reblogged this on Laura Bruno's Blog and commented:
    Jon Rappoport connecting the dots … including the explosive ones like Dr. Frances, the lead psychiatrist author of the DSM-IV publicly admitting it’s all B.S. … and Dr. Russell Barkley, professor of psychiatry and neurology at U. Mass Medical Center admitting that ADHD (and by extension of his own logic — the entire field of psychiatry) is a completely bogus. This is a long, richly formatted article but worth the read for anyone who’s ever wanted to create art and/or wondered if they’re “crazy.”

    They can be fun to talk to, you just gotta let them know that of all the problems you have prescription drugs isn’t one of them, and never will be.

  6. OzzieThinker says:

    Jon, I am all for your raising awareness of “quackery” in the public arena, but you have touched on an area you don’t seem to want to touch. Dragons live in the fourth dimension. Those who can access that frequency can see them. For those that can’t see, they don’t exist. In that way, I have some sympathy for psychiatry. How do you define the undefinable?

    “A big part of the creation process is perception. Indeed, without perception nothing would exist. Yes, I have heard all those Zen-style arguments about trees falling in unimagined woods which have not been witnessed. However, if there was no perception, existence would not exist because there would be no awareness of it. Perception is a cooperation of existence and awareness. In the case of human beings, the cooperation is selective. We are all surrounded by extra-dimensional entities all the time, but the majority cannot see due to flawed perception. Our perception is designed to make sense of our reality. Instinctively, therefore, we do not like change. Indeed some would go so far as denying or attacking change in order to preserve their reality. This can be extended to reasoning behind the clash of cultures where Muslims want a Muslim world or homosexuals want bi-sexuality to be normal with homosexuality the preferential example of self-expression. Currently global society is being tortured by the xenophobic exploits of Zionism, which is something that goes way beyond Judaism or any expression of faith. In fact, Zionist zeal very much connects with exo-politics…..”

    I do not call “BS”, I call “sophistry”, much more gentle, if not more accurate. Talk about one to know one, eh? OT, we be made for each other!

    1. a. a method of argument that is seemingly plausible though actually invalid and misleading
    b. the art of using such arguments
    2. subtle but unsound or fallacious reasoning
    3. an instance of this; sophism

  8. theodorewesson says:

    In this September 2013 presentation, Dr. Allen Frances continues to admit to everything. IMO, the facts he rattles off are indictable.


    In this radio interview, Dr. Russell Barkley continues to tow the party line:–dr-russell-barkley–adhd

    I found this amusing,… in the “those with ADHD (sic) [those labeled ADHD] and being self-employed” portion of the interview (go to @35:58), one of the self-employment jobs Barkely suggests is… “be a drug rep”.

    @42:35: the “stimulants” portion of the interview.

    Also, there is something about the Barkley’s spirit and the frequency and cadence of his voice that is suspect to me.

    This one Jon is such an important topic…

    the medical system is broken…broken by GREED in Big Pharma, the insurance agencies and the Rockefellers hijacking the medical system in the early 1900’s…it has been a down hill slope since then…the Rockefeller family is morally and spiritually bankrupt yet, they are in charge of our health system…how IRONIC is that…they live for eugenics and death and our in charge of our health….

    I read an article lately that these creatures of the dark have a new test allowing them to see if your new born has mental disorder tendencies at BIRTH…can you believe this BS…they state they can read DNA and tell you if your baby will be mentally challenged….i can say for certain once they get your baby on their toxic medications as young as possible your baby will have mental challenges like never before these are out of control sick minded scientists (robots for the system really) destroying our childrens mental health at an alarming rate…

    the whole medical system is Terminally MAD with brainwashing from toxic Big Pharma…try talking to your MD about natural supplements and diet and a glaze comes over them they can’t change the topic fast enough…but, they will talk toxic drugs from their toxic drug bible like babbling idiots….it is a disgrace to the entire system what Big Pharma has done through the leadership of a sick in the head Rockefeller family in charge…

    the medical profession doesn’t have your best interest for any disease…their only answer is to put patients on toxic health destroying Big Pharma drugs….even diseases they claim they don’t know the cause but, they have a toxic pill for it…disgusting in all ways…folks would be shocked to know the true extent of the failures of medical science…yet, they act like god when they put those white lab coats on…what an illusion…

    soon, more and more will distrust doctors…that is why we are seeing the strong arm of the law applied to patients that don’t want the toxic treatments offered from Big Pharma…it is past the point of ridiculous…

    it is a sad state of affairs for the sheeple that believe everything they are told like the good little students told to OBEY from their first steps into the school system and on it goes from there…

    Thanks Jon you do good work for those that want to step out of the box and start learning the truth on so many topics…

    Lots of LOVE

    • Alananda says:

      @Awakened Laurie I totally agree (! — hey! I am young again!) with your post. I would ask, What now? Now that we know the DSM-IV, DSM-V for what these “works” are. Ishall post this suggestion once or twice more, lest I be accused of “spamming” or tossing pearls before swine, whichever.

      I assert that we have a critical task before us, each of us: Answer to your satisfaction, “What is the Mind?” Next question: HOW and WHY do YOU use “the Mind”? We do, each moment, each day, “conscious” or “asleep”. We have to break through the illusion of The Matrix, the only avenue through is penetrating Mind, the light at the end of Its tunnel beckoning, teasing us on.

      Best I can offer.

  10. Thanks Much for stepping up to state and quote the masterful command of the obvious in regards to the American Psych professions that the DSM is bs and that a move to wean people of the psych-med teet towards life and adapting to their own condition. The French DUMPED the DSM, and wrote their own. They treat each and every patient based… go figure… ON THE PATIENT individually. Thanks for your article! The DSM is pretty much an insurance coding device for paperwork now and not a diagnostic manual.

  11. And, the OMS (I call it) Over-Medication Syndrome is… I love the great example in the Argentinian Film “Man Facing Southeast” where the Warden looking out the window at the mobs beyond the walls in public and then back into the sanitarium yard where there is peace and tranquility and the crazy monkey-business of Art being painted here and there… and the reporter asks, “HowEVER do you know when it’s time to let them out back into the public?” “Oh, that’s the easiest part,” says the Warden, “Their art goes to s**t.”
