RE: How do you explain psychological therianthropy?
no one knows how it really is.
there are several popular theories, such as features of the structure of the brain and features of its development, autism, impressing, etc. in my opinion, there is a combination of factors.
I expressed one of my theories in the Russian segment, perhaps you have not heard this before
Quote:Traditional psychiatry raises the question of why some people become ill. In my opinion, it would be more correct to ask why most people do not get sick. If we consider human existence in the conditions of current realities, remembering the alienation, loneliness, helplessness of the individual, it would be logical to assume that he will not be able to cope with such pressure and will simply be destroyed. In reality, most people manage to avoid this, but salvation is achieved at the cost of disfiguring their own personality. People replace alienation with everyday routine, adaptability, the desire for power, prestige, money, service to a religious cult shared with other individuals, stoic self-torture or defiant narcissism. However, all this is able to maintain a person's health only for a certain time.
This is a piece from Erich Fromm's Zen Buddhism and Psychoanalysis
So what does Teri have to do with it, and this is to the question of becoming and realizing oneself as a beast, as opposed to imprinting, they say there is a hypothesis about impressing, which rather explains the Mowgli syndrome, and not therianthropy. For me, it's rather the opposite, these are those who, at the time of growing up and becoming, did not bend under external circumstances and did not accept those human rules of the game, or did not fully accept them. Here is the answer why there are only predators among the Teri. Moreover, it fits like the spiritual \ mystical, they say only the strong in spirit are capable of this, like the materialistic, only a strong personality is capable of this. It is clear that the individual was a Therian before that, but here is the impetus for awareness and self-search, let it become an adult.
continuation of the thought regarding that quote and fromm,
"The appearance of a person into the world and his departure from this world do not happen by his will. An animal, unlike a human, instinctively adapts to the surrounding world and completely merges with nature. For a person deprived of this opportunity, life cannot be lived by itself. He has to live it. Man belongs to nature, and at the same time, realizing himself as an individual, he goes beyond it."
Teri is born a beast, but they don't become, do you all agree? The reasons are not important, (why are they not important, let's say it is not known for certain why the brain has developed this way) and as mentioned above, bumping into human existence with his animal instincts, with his lack of understanding of what is happening around and why, self-examination begins, and why is it so and the search for threads that lead to what?
There is such a concept among Buddhists, enlightenment, only now, almost everyone understands this process incorrectly, (from the wiki, corresponds to the translation of the abstract noun bodhi, knowledge, wisdom or awakened mind), you know, when you struggle for a long time over a task, then after a little rest (meditating), the answer comes as an epiphany, here it is more about this, it is impossible to say with certainty, but it looks like that:
"Overcoming repression and alienation from oneself and, as a consequence, from another individual means awareness of the unconscious, i.e. awakening, parting with illusions, delusions and false ideas and an adequate perception of reality. Awareness of the previously unconscious makes an internal revolution in a person. The basis of creative intellectual thinking and direct intuitive perception of reality is precisely the genuine awakening of a person. An individual who is in a state of alienation, when the real world is perceived by him only at the level of thinking, turns out to be able to lie; being awakened and, therefore, oriented to a direct perception of reality, a person is not able to tell a lie: the power of his experience destroys the lie. Finally, the transfer of the unconscious into the conscious means for a person to live guided by the truth. Being open to reality, he ceases to be alienated from it; without resisting her and at the same time not trying to impose anything on her, he reacts to reality in an adequate way."
The question remains open, what does the animals have to do with it.
