    Thanks for this thread...over 3 years ago. I felt it was worth the bump; not only is it a good read, but the quoted portion above was pertinent to, and influential in, how I reasoned through some internal dissonance in the Disturbing Implications thread.

    Respectfully,

        Thank you for the thread bump. For me the ideas contained in this thread had gone to compost. It's good to have them back as refresher.

          A link to a thread in which the idea of interactor/operator made it out into published literature.

              I was reading Writing Down the Bones (a book recommended to me by Barrett) and thought this quote pertained to the thread.

              Our language is usually locked into a sentance syntax of subject/verb/direct-object. There is a subject working on an object. “I see the dog”—with this sentence structure, “I” is the center of the universe. We forget in our language structure that while “I” looks at the “the dog,” “the dog” is simultaneously looking at us. There is an exchange or interaction rather than a subject acting on an object.

              We think in sentences, and the way we think is the way we see. If we think in the structure subject/verb/direct-object, then that is how we form our world….There is a self-centeredness and egocentricity built into the very structure of our language.

                  Yeah, I stubbled across that earlier this week too. The title looked promising but after reading the abstract I was less sure. I still need to read it to form my opinion. First off it sounds pretty weird and overtly interventionnal.

                    What I didn't get was why anything that plugs in needs to be done prior to manual therapy. Manual therapy, done right, should be enough of a prime on its own. If done interactively. They must be a bunch of mesodermalists.

                      So it takes two to interact. And there are patient-therapists that participate on this board. What advice would you give the patient side of the interaction. That is, can patients interact their way to better care? If so, how best should they go about it?

                      If some patients are better interactors than their therapists, what does that end up looking like in the clinic?

                        If the patient were the better interactor, he/ she would be questioning, seeking clarification, perhaps seeking metaphor to further understanding. The therapist could be either threatened/angered frustrated by this, or perhaps enlightened by the experience. In other words the patient may become the catalyst that elicits a more interactive experience. Or the therapist could get all huffy, and try to shut the patient down.

                          I think it ends up with the patient inwardly not enjoying the contact or even actively disliking it but not wanting to say anything because after all, it's their own fault they're there in the first place, in their own mind, and, they imagine, in the mind of the therapist, so they convince themselves to be grateful for any form of human primate social grooming they get no matter how uncomfortable it may be and will perform incredible mental somersaults to hold their therapist blameless, faultless, perfect and themselves in pain/to blame for it.

                                New version, more stuff.

                                The Reiki on one end and religion on the other? They aren't really as far apart as they look: The image is more like one side of a big circle, with Reiki and religion touching each other somewhere behind the viewer, belief systems that don't bear up beneath any sort of careful scrutiny.
