For now let us examine the phenomenon called, “The Fall”. The Fall is what occurs to the ego when it undergoes psychosis. It has been described to me as a sort of, whoosh, or cooling down in which the ego moves from the emotional mind to the instinctual. The difference between the two is like the difference between a white hole and a black. A white hole is a singularity that releases energy into space, whereas a black hole pulls everything towards it. The ego in a white state releases emotions, and experiences the emotional turbulence released from it. The ego in a black state absorbs all emotion, is concerned not with the emotions of things, but by the biological pleasure produced by interaction. Thus the white ego is immaterial, emotional, and mental, whereas the black ego is materialistic, pleasure-seeking, and physical.
Psychologically speaking it is important to note that both white and black egos do not necessitate moral inclinations, but are merely indicative of a particular mental reality. Would one blame someone who acquired a black ego through rape and torture a bad person? Certainly not, for thus far as I have observed it is precisely this assigning of moral inequity which helps generate psychotic repression in the first place.
The trigger for psychosis appears to not only be moralistic reminders, but also positive emotion. I theorize that this is because of the natural polarity of the psychotic states in reversing negative emotional environments through denial. When a psychotic individual is faced with someone of a genuinely positive mind-set, the positive emotion is a reminder to the black ego that he/she is in denial concerning what was previously a negative.
To put in more logical terms, human beings naturally view what is pleasurable as morally acceptable, whereas what is displeasurable is viewed as morally reprehensible. Now if you were thinking this is much too simple a dynamic you’d be right, for the human being is inherently a bi-polar animal in the sense that what is considered pleasurable is not just dictated by biology, but also by ego. For example, a human being will most generally go through life thinking that the concept of murder is inherently evil and therefore negative, however what has gone on here is not what the biology says about murder, but what the conditioned ego says about it. An individual is told something is “bad”, and this “bad” is reinforced through negative reinforcement, so that the mind believes that this concept of “bad” naturally produces negative emotions, when in reality the production of negativity is an illusion designed to direct the ego from acting towards the truth, which is that biologically speaking many of the egotistical negatives produce emotional pleasure during the act thereof. It is this contrast between ego and reality which reinforces psychotic behavior; a dissociated, layered ego in denial of it’s own multiple levels, and it is the rules of civilization that perpetuate what is known as the cycle of violence.
The cycle of violence is an emotional feedback loop directly produced by the repression and denial of the moral contradictions of culture. It is a cycle of behavior that seeks to perpetuate itself because society denies it exists, or that it is valid for it to even exist in the first place. It is the denial of the negative by culture which causes psychosis to manifest itself, for it is the mental realization that ones biology is providing positive feedback in context to what the ego views as an absolute evil, which produces the psychotic state of denial. If someone were raised to accept that murder was a natural part of life, and to expect to face it in its reality, then upon experiencing pleasure in the act of killing, the psychotic would have no need to exist, for the egotistic state of denial found in psychotics exists because the foundational experience of their reality is denied within culture.
